How long does Restylane Last?
Restylane results should last anywhere between 6–12 months before your body metabolizes the filler enough that you’ll need another injection (a “top-off,” in injectables lingo). How long your results last will depend on the product, treatment area, and how your body responds. However, because your body naturally breaks down hyaluronic acid, the filler used in this treatment, this can vary from person to person depending on how slowly your body processes this.
What should I expect during/after the procedure?
Like with any injections, patients may experience a slight pinching during the injection along with redness, swelling, or bruising around the injection sites following treatment.
At what age can I get Restylane?

- What is the Russian Lip Technique?
The Russian lip technique is a popular technique of enhancing lips with filler. Unlike the traditional lip filler method which creates a horizontal projection of the lips, Russian lips have vertical height with little horizontal projection. This creates a taller lip from the frontal view without the “duck” lip from the profile view.
