Welcome back! Yesterday, we went over some tips regarding Restylane. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a filler used for facial rejuvenation by smoothing out lines and plumping out needed parts of the face like lips and cheeks. Restylane has become incredibly popular, but, like any other procedure, there are questions about the procedure itself and what can happen afterward.

Read on for 5 more helpful tips about the Restylane process.

  1. The Restylane process is very safe. However, there can be occasional side effects. Bruising can happen sometimes due to the filler injection, but bruises generally disappear after a few days.
  2. Applying Restylane is as much an art as it is a science and, sometimes, mistakes happen. If you feel an area that’s uneven, or if you notice a small bump, no problem! Touch-up and corrections are completely normal, and those areas can either be massaged out or a little bit can be added.
  3. One of the benefits of Restylane is that, unlike other fillers, it can be dissolved out. If a mistake happens, or you simply change your mind, it can be dissolved very quickly. It usually only takes a day or less for it to completely vanish.
  4. Initially, the application of Restylane can last months, depending on where in the face it is applied. In areas like the mouth, where a lot of movement takes place, it can last for a lesser amount of time.
  5. Finally, some people wonder if it’s worth it to have the Restylane procedure done in the first place. While every experience is different, some people report the renewed feeling of self-confidence they receive when they look in a mirror and see that the old smile lines have vanished, or lips are looking fuller and more robust.
