Want to add volume and firmness to your lips? Restylane is an FDA approved filler for wrinkles and for enhancing lips. Restylane is a hyaluronic gel that is injected into the skin or the lips. It adds volume, making the face appear softer and more youthful and lips appear more full. To get the treatment, a consultation is required to determine the amount needed to achieve desired results. The procedure for wrinkles is done in the lower one third of the face, around the mouth region or directly into the lip. The treatment takes about thirty minutes, and results are immediate. The first day, the area will be swollen and red and it usually takes about a week for any swelling and bruising to subside. The results last approximately twelve months for wrinkles and six months for the lip area. Restylane can be used on just about anyone, but if you have severe allergies it is important to talk with your physician first about possible reactions. It costs $400 per syringe.
