Restylane® Lip Enhancement Pasadena
Restylane® is a popular cosmetic dermal filler made up of biodegradable hyaluronic acid, which is primarily used to augment the lips and eliminate facial wrinkles too deep to be treated by lasers. Approved by the FDA in 2003, Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid gel that is especially effective on lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Adding volume and fullness to the skin, it corrects moderate to severe folds and creases.
Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance already found in the body, no allergy testing is required, and the results are temporary. Restylane® also stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, however, so that there is continued improvement for a period of time after the treatment.
The skill of your injector is vital for a natural-looking result. Your injector must have the training and experience to know the proper dosage and where to place the injections. We have many years of experience with Restylane® and other dermal fillers. We know how these products work in the skin and can recommend whether Restylane® or a combination of fillers will give you the look you want.
For sensual, kissable lips similar to those of celebrities like Taylor Swift and Angelina Jolie, our Restylane® formulations are excellent for lip augmentation. Restylane® injections add subtle lip volume for enhancement and to smooth over fine lines around the mouth.
Restylane® is a robust filler excellent for treating the upper lip wrinkles and smokers’ lines. The benefits of our lip injections last from six months to a year.

What Can Restylane® Do For Me?
Restylane® treatments can diminish the appearance of:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Worry lines on the forehead
- Smile lines adjacent to the mouth
- Nasolabial folds (laugh lines) from the nose to the mouth
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines extending from the corners of the mouth to the jaw line
- Lipstick lines
Restylane® can also be used for lip augmentation/lip enhancement.
What is a Restylane® Treatment Like?
A tiny needle is used to inject Restylane®, and the formula includes Lidocaine, which helps to numb the injection areas. We also apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort.
Including the time required for the topical anesthetic to take effect, your appointment for Restylane® injections should last no more than an hour.
How Long Do Restylane® Results Last?
Restylane® is a long-lasting wrinkle filler, but it is not permanent. In many patients, the results from one treatment last about six months. In some, a second treatment can last as long as a year.
What Will I Experience While Recovering From Restylane®?
You can return to work and other normal activities immediately after your Restylane® appointment. You may experience some minor bruising, redness, itching, and swelling at the injection sites, however, which usually resolve within a few days. Any discoloration can be covered with makeup.
You can see some results of Restylane® immediately, and these results will continue to improve as your body produces more collagen.
What Happens After Restylane® Treatments?
After your injections, we will give you a list of post-treatment instructions. You may experience some slight discomfort, redness, swelling, bruising, itching, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects diminish within hours, and rarely last over a week.
We will also recommend a date to consider if you would like a touch-up as the Restylane® improvements begin to gradually wear off.
Can I Combine Different Dermal Fillers for Facial Enhancements?
Yes. We often combine dermal fillers in a procedure called a liquid facelift. Or, you can choose a neuromodulator like Botox® to resolve forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
