Approved by the FDA, Restylane® is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. Restylane® is a clear transparent gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body. Restylane® is not of animal or human origin, which means that there is almost no risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for a Restylane® treatment are the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth), the lips (to provide fullness and shape), corners of the mouth (to restore their horizontal youthful position instead of a downturned angry position), and glabellar lines (between the eyebrows). With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane® remains in your skin for about 6-7 months. Because lidocaine is now built into the Restylane® Gel, the discomfort from this procedure is minimal.
"Restylane® is a cosmetic dermal fillers that replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away facial fine-lines and wrinkles."

At Abrams Dermatology, we use Restylane ® for hollowing of the tear trough area underneath the eyes because it is a finer, more fluid injectable. Restylane® also has the unique quality of slightly shrinking upon injection into the face, making it precise filler for delicate fine lines around the eyes without adding too much bulge.
We also use Restylane® to add volume to the lips. Restylane® is an excellent non-invasive filler for lip augmentation because it is quick and provides instant results. Similarly, it is not permanent, so should you wish to return your lips to the original fullness, the Restylane® itself will dissipate over time.
