Benefits of Restylane Lip Volume with Lidocaine
- Lip augmentation;

- Reshaping of the lip borders in order to make lips look more symmetrical;
- The local anesthetic lidocaine reduces the pain of the injection;
Restylane Lip Volume with Lidocaine is an injectable dermal filler developed through the patented NASHA (non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid) Technology, which allows the hyaluronic acid to break down in the body slower in comparison to its natural non-stabilized form. For that reason, all dermal fillers of Restylane range have a long-lasting effect, because the injected hyaluronic acid is retained longer in tissues, before being degraded. The effect of Restylane Lip Volume with Lidocaine is reasonably long-lasting, but not permanent, so you will need further procedures to maintain the effect achieved by the initial treatment. Generally, the duration of the effect is from 6 to 9 months and even up to a year, depending on different factors, such as age, skin type, lifestyle, exposure to environmental factors, etc.
Is an allergy test needed before treatment?
Restylane Lip Volume hyaluronic acid filler is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction, because it is biocompatible and very similar to the substances, naturally present in the body. NASHA Technology reduces impurities and ensures the absence of immunologically active substances, animal components and viruses. Its safety profile is clinically proven with 1 in 20 000 patients experiencing side effects after treatment with the dermal filler.
Nevertheless, some side effects are possible to occur the first two or three days after the treatment. Swelling, bruising, redness or tenderness are common reactions and in most cases they disappear within 48 hours.
You must inform your practitioner if you are allergic to Lidocaine!
