Restylane is a popular filler used in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. This dermal filler was approved for this type of use in 2004 and has been used by plastic surgeons around the world ever since. As this filler binds with water, its effects last an expended period of time, which is one benefit that patients appreciate. Recently, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved Restylane for another use.
Restylane As a Lip Filler
Individuals that desire fuller lips have used fillers injected by a plastic surgeon to achieve this. Restylane was just approved by the FDA for this type of use, which is sure to increase its popularity with patients even more. Restylane is unique compared to other fillers offered for this purpose. This is because it is the only hydraulic acid dermal filler available for use in the lips. When it has been used to treat wrinkles, it offers both structure and lift; two characteristics that are important for lip injections as well.
