Restylane Lip Injections

Restylane® is a long-lasting and crystal-clear gel for filling out lips, facial wrinkles and facial folds. Thanks to a unique stabilization process, the hyaluronic acid in Restylane is almost identical to that naturally found in the body and only very slightly modified (0.5 - 1%).

Other hyaluronic acid-based injectable implants are often modified by about 20%. Restylane is therefore completely biologically degradable (the body's metabolism of hyaluronic acid corresponds to 200 syringes of Restylane per day).


Manufactured by Q-Med Laboratories in Sweden, Restylane® is an innovative product based on non-animal hyaluronic acid. The product is naturally integrated into the tissue, thus allowing important nutritive agents to pass freely through the implant, and cells to pass between fragments of the gel. Its patented stabilization method means that Restylane has a longer-lasting effect than most preparations.


Restylane is injected into the dermis and provides volume where the concentration of the body's own hyaluronic acid has decreased.

Length: One treatment takes about 30 minutes (no pre-test required).

Anesthesia: When treating wrinkles, pain relief is usually not needed but can be easily achieved.

In/Outpatient: Inpatient procedure

Side-Effects / Risks

Even though the treated area can swell up and become red for one or two days, it is totally possible to socialize and work as normal. However, about 1 in 2000 persons has experienced transient swelling, redness and tenderness at or near the treatment site(s) up to several weeks after treatment. For further details concerning your specific treatment, please consult a doctor.


Immediately after the treatment, the treated area can be slightly swollen and red. This is a normal result of the injection and it generally goes away in a day or two.


Results can be seen immediately with no scars or marks on the face. How long the effect lasts is very individual. It depends on factors such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle and age, as well as the degree of perfection demanded. For the majority of wrinkle patients, about 50-80% of the effect remains after 6 months, with most patients choosing to have a touch-up injection within a year of the original treatment.

For lip patients, a new treatment is needed after about 6 months. The best thing about Restylane is that you can replenish your natural beauty whenever you feel the need. A touch-up can be performed whenever you like.
