Restylane is the best treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. It’s a crystal gel that is injected into or beneath the skin in small amounts to restore volume and structure. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is similar to the hyaluronic acid found naturally in the human body. Restylane’s hyaluronic acid is not animal derived, meaning no skin test is needed and there is a minimal risk of allergic or hypersensitive reactions.
Restylane nicely smoothes and fills the fine lines on the upper and lower lip that are not severe enough to require laser resurfacing. Fine lines, deeper wrinkles and folds in the cheek areas (nasolabial, mesolabial and lines at the corners of the mouth) respond well to Restylane.
Areas Treated by Restylane
• Upper Face (Frown lines, Worry lines, Eye brow)
• Middle Face (Crow’s Feet, Tired Eyes, Nose, Cheek Augmentation)
• Lower Face (Nose to Mouth lines, Smoker’s Lines, Lip Lines, Smile Lines, Sad mouth corners, Lip Enhancement, Chin Augmentation)
• Skin Rejuvenation (Face, Décolletage and neck, Hands)

After Restylane Treatment
Most folds and wrinkles require one treatment depending on the area. Maintenance treatment is not usually required for approximately 6 months or more. Through Dr. Prasad’s experience, Restylane lasts almost twice as long as regular collagen injections. You can request a touch up anytime after the previous treatment.
After Dr. Prasad performs your Restylane and/or Perlane injections, normal activities can be resumed immediately. Discomfort is minimal. The treatment site may have a little swelling or redness, which may last a few hours. There may be some slight bruising which can be covered with make-up. Depending on the area treated, the effects can last up to 6 months or longer. If the lips are treated, initial swelling and tenderness may occur within the first several days, but subsides after 2-3 days.
