Restylane Maryland

The World’s Best-Selling Facial Filler, Giving You The Power To Change Your Appearance.

Restylane is the most well known facial fillers in the United States, known for its safety, efficacy and longstanding results. Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic facial filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane been used for over a decade, and has been utilized on more than 1.4 million Americans. It is the first facial filler that was FDA approved.


What is Restylane?

Restylane is a facial filler that is made of a biodegradable hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance present in all living organisms. This natural acid provides volume and fullness to an organism’s epidermis (i.e., skin). Restylane is produced as a clear gel substance and is injected directly beneath the surface of the skin. Through the introduction of Restylane to the treatment area, the hyaluronic-based gel adds natural volume and lift resulting in smoother wrinkles and less prominent folds. Moreover, and what distinguishes Restylane from other dermal fillers, is the way in which Restylane permeates the dermal tissue and naturally binds to water molecules. Through this action, the modified water molecules assist in achieving and maintaining volume possessing a natural appearance. Over time, Restylane is gradually degraded by the body and dissolves without any residue or trace.

Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by a gradual breakdown of the body’s collagen and the elastin fibers in the skin. No one is immune from experiencing this normal aging process. Squinting, frowning and smiling also inflict stress on the underlying collagen in the skin and accelerate the looks of aging. Until recently, injectable collagen was the most widely used available facial filler to improve the appearance of these lines.


Restylane is an excellent treatment option for:

  • Lip enhancement
  • Deep folds
  • Facial lines
  • Wrinkle correction
  • Volume augmentation of the lips
  • Shaping facial contours (such as cheeks and chin correcting)


What is the difference between Restylane® & Perlane®?

The difference between Perlane and Restylane is the size of the particle. Perlane is composed of larger gel particles than Restylane and is intended for deeper injection to add volume for structural support and lift.

In addition to smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, Restylane® can be utilized to augment the lips, creating a natural-looking fullness and aesthetically pleasing shape. Depending on your individual needs, Restylane® treatments, like BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, can be used alone or in conjunction with various other cosmetic procedures for more noticeable and lasting results.

After Restylane® treatment, you will experience noticeably smoother, more youthful skin, and since there is no downtime after treatment, you can return to daily activities immediately. Restylane® injections can be repeated as necessary, usually every six to twelve months, to maintain facial rejuvenation results.
