What is Restylane-L?

Restylane-L is a clear injectable gel dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid and a small amount of lidocaine to reduce discomfort during treatment. It’s used to smooth facial lines and wrinkles like nasolabial folds and marionette lines, improve under-eye hollows, and add fullness to the lips.


How Does Restylane-L Work?

As a dermal filler, Restylane-L plumps up targeted areas of the skin to smooth away and fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and under-eye hollows. It can also be used to plump up the lips for a fuller pout. 

Additionally, like all dermal fillers, it also helps to increase collagen and elastin production as a reaction to the stretch that fibroblasts feel when the filler is placed, making the skin more flexible and elastic and further improving the overall look and feel of the skin over the longer term.


Who is a Good Candidate for Restylane-L?

Most patients who come in to see Dr. Krant are good candidates for Restylane-L, since it is such a safe and basic filler. That said, to determine if Restylane-L is the right treatment for you, you should meet the following criteria: 

  • Be in generally good health
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have visible fine lines and wrinkles
  • Have thin lips
  • Have a sunken or hollow under-eye area


What to Expect with Restylane-L Treatment

Restylane-L treatment is relatively quick and simple. To start, Dr. Krant and her staff will clean the treatment area. From there, Dr. Krant will use a very thin needle to inject the Restylane-L formula into your skin. Because Restylane-L contains lidocaine, no other anesthetic is necessary, but you will be offered topical numbing cream if desired. Most patients tolerate the treatment very well.

The number of injections you receive depends on the number of areas being treated and the results you’re looking for. As Dr. Krant is very precise, she only places a small amount of filler with each injection.

The biggest risk of any filler treatment is filler being injected into or pressing on deep blood vessels. This can cause disruption of blood flow to tissue leading to skin necrosis, blindness, or stroke. For this reason, filler treatment should always be taken seriously and treated with respect. Dr. Krant recommends only seeing a board-certified dermatologist physician, or one of the other core cosmetic physician specialists for filler treatment: plastic surgery, ENT/facial plastic surgery, or oculoplastic surgery. These are specialties of physicians who have completed MD or DO medical school and a full residency with possible additional fellowship training, who have facial surgery as part of their original training, so their understanding of facial anatomy is the most robust.


Recovery & Results

There is little to no downtime with Restylane-L injections. You may notice some bruising, tenderness, or swelling, but those side effects will subside on their own within a day or two. You will want to avoid excess sun exposure, alcohol, strenuous activity, and makeup for 24 hours.

As for results, you will be able to see improvements immediately. The results will continue to improve over the next several months as your body builds up collagen. Results typically last for 6  to 18 months. You can receive maintenance treatment every 6-18 months as needed, or never if you love how you look.
