Restylane is the first and only non-animal based Hyaluronic acid used to restore volume and fullness from naso-labial lines around the mouth or to plump up lips. As the years go by, your collagen deteriorates; this is replacing the lost fullness.
Ideal Candidate for Restylane®

Common concerns for clients in Orlando that need Restylane® are as follows: Smoker’s lines (perioral lines) vertical lines on the mouth, Marionette lines (oral commissures) lines at the side of the mouth, thinning lips.
How Does Restylane® Work?
Restylane® is the first and only non-animal based Hyaluronic acid used to restore volume and fullness from naso-labial lines around the mouth or to plump up lips. As the years go by, your collagen deteriorates; this is replacing the lost fullness. Because of its hydrophilic or water loving nature, Restylane® attracts and binds water molecules to help maintain volume. Restylane® injections generally take 30 minutes to perform and Last 6-12 months.
Restylane® is similar to Perlane in that they are both composed of the same hyaluronic acid. Perlane® consists of larger gel particles and a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. It is intended for deeper injection to add volume for structural support, as well as to fill in deep lines and wrinkles. Restylane® is perfect for thinning lips.
What to expect with Restylane®?
You should experience minimal discomfort during and after your Restylane® treatment in Orlando as there is Lidocaine pre-mixed into the Restylane® for total numbing, and normal activities can usually be resumed within 24 hours. The injection sites may be a little swollen, bruising and tenderness may occur, but this should subside after one to three days and icing can help.
A sculpted and younger looking face will be the end results with plumper lips and no signs of a previous smoker exist any longer.
