What Is Restylane?
Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines), the corners of the mouth and marionette lines—the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.
Additionally, Restylane and Restylane® Silk are FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21, and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.
Will My Insurance Cover the Cost of Restylane Treatments?
Dermal fillers are considered cosmetic procedures and most insurance companies do not recognize the procedure for reimbursement.

What to Should I Expect From My Treatment?
Depending on the type of facial filler used, the results may last anywhere from a few months to a year or more.
Researchers believe that age, genetic background, skin quality and lifestyle as well as the injected body site may all play a role in the injected material’s “staying power.”

Is Restylane Safe?
The hyaluronic acid (HA) in Restylane is not produced from animals, meaning that there is no risk of disease being transmitted or allergic reactions in relation to foods such as beef, chicken and eggs.
The Restylane family of products work like your body’s own hyaluronic acid to enhance facial features and give long-lasting, natural-looking results.
About Dermal Fillers
As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling and chewing.
The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begin to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, and facial creases over the areas where this muscle movement occurs.
Soft-tissue fillers, such as CosmoDerm, Sculptra, Restylane or Radiesse (also known as Radiance) can help fill in these lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.
When injected beneath the skin, these fillers plump up creased and sunken areas of the face. They can also add fullness to the lips and cheeks.
