Patient After Care Advice

Please visit

Immediately after the Restylane treatment there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection of Restylane. If the inconvenience continues or if other reactions occur, please contact your physician.

The Restylane treated area should be massaged gently for 30 seconds morning and night for 2 to 3 days.

The initial swelling after the Restylane treatment may last longer. Some patients experience swelling for about a week. This means that the result directly after the Restylane treatment should not be seen as the final result.

Avoid touching the Restylane treated area 6 hours after the treatment. After that the area can be gently washed with soap and water and light make-up can be applied.

Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the Restylane treated area to intense heat (e.g. solarium and sunbathing) or extreme cold.

If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another eruption of cold sores.

If you are using aspirin or any similar medication, be aware that these may increase the bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

RESTYLANE contains the body's own natural material, hyaluronic acid.

How long will a Restylane treatment last?

RESTYLANE treatment is long lasting but not permanent. You always have a choice to continue or change the combination of Restylane treatments with Perlane or Restylane Lip Volume treatments - and the Restylane procedure can be repeated as often as you like.

Most patients choose to have a follow-up Restylane treatment 6 to 12 months after an initial treatment of wrinkles. When the lips have been treated a follow-up treatment is normally needed after about 6 months.

A touch-up Restylane treatment within 2-4 weeks after the initial treatment may be necessary to achieve an optimal correction.

Clinical experience indicates that follow-up Restylane treatments normally require a smaller amount of the product.
