Are you looking for Restylane in San Francisco? At Z Skin Center, we’re pleased to offer Restylane treatments, an exciting option for those who are looking for skin rejuvenation. Restylane was developed in Sweden, and since 1996, it has helped millions of patients in 70 countries achieve younger looking skin.

The science behind Restylane is hyaluronic acid, which is present in youthful skin, but recedes and changes in structure as we age. Restylane gel injections boost your natural supply of hyaluronic acid, which will smooth out signs of aging and enhance your natural beauty.

Our patients visit us for Restylane to diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles including:

  • Worry lines on the forehead
  • Glabellar lines between the eyebrows
  • Smile lines (adjacent to the mouth)
  • Nasolabial folds (laugh lines, from nose to mouth)
  • Perorbital lines (crow’s feet)

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Restylane®?

Restylane® is a clear injectable gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. It is the world’s most studied wrinkle filler, with more than a decade of use. Restylane® and Restylane -L® are indicated for mid-to-deep dermal implantation, and have been used in more than 10 million treatments in more than 65 countries worldwide. Restylane® is biocompatible with the human body and is broken down naturally.

How could I benefit from Restylane®?

Restylane® adds volume and fullness to the skin, to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. These include the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines), lipstick lines (the area just below the nose and above the upper lip), the corners of the mouth, and marionette lines (the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline).

How soon will I see the results of Restylane®?

Because it is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, Restylane® works immediately, adding volume for a more youthful appearance.

Will my treatment for Restylane® hurt?

We use lidocaine or similar topical anesthetic cream, as well as small needles and a skilled, gentle technique, to reduce any potential discomfort during and after your treatment.

How often should I be treated with Restylane®?

Restylane® injectable gel has been clinically proven to provide results that last up to 18 months, with only one follow-up treatment at either 4.5 or nine months. Dr. Zanelli can work with you to help you establish your Restylane® regimen.

What are the common side effects associated with Restylane®?

After your treatment for Restylane® , you may experience some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness. This will normally last less than seven days. Side effects are minimized by following all of your doctor’s recommendations for post-treatment skin care.

Dr. Zanelli can discuss all the benefits and any potential side effects of Restylane® during your one-on-one consultation. For optimum facial rejuvenation, Dr. Zanelli may also suggest combining Restylane® with one or more of the following anti-wrinkle procedures:

  • Dysport or Botox
  • Juvederm
  • Perlane
  • Radiesse
  • Sculptra
