Treatment step-by-step

Start by locating a Restylane clinic by using the “Find a clinic” link. Make an appointment for a consultation.

Consultation and Restylane treatment

Come to your consultation prepared. Be honest with yourself about your wishes and questions. You will learn how Restylane products can be safely used to suit your wishes, and you will be asked about your medical history. When you leave your consultation you should feel well informed about Restylane, and you should know what results to expect.

Together with your physician you decide which Restylane product is suitable for your needs. Before treatment, the practitioner will discuss pain relief with you. As every person has different preferences and sensitivity, Restylane is available both with and without integrated pain-relief. Depending on which area you will have treated you will also have a choice of other anesthesia, such as anesthetic cream, dental block or ice.

A treatment with Restylane only takes about 15-30 minutes. It is performed by injecting Restylane through a fine needle into your skin (or for some treatments just under) to fill wrinkles or add volume, shape your face or lips or rejuvenate your skin.


The Harmony programme is a personalized treatment plan that uses the latest techniques and scientifically proven products to restore and enhance facial balance.

The program includes a unique, personal questionnaire, which you complete before your consultation. Your responses to the questionnaire enable you and your practitioner to work together to design your individual Harmony treatment plan, taking into account your facial features and skin condition, as well as your personal motives, aspirations and budget.


After treatment you will receive post-treatment guidelines. It is normal to experience some post-treatment discomfort, such as redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the treatment site This typically subsides after a few days, up to one to two weeks. Following treatment, there is sometimes a need for a touch-up treatment to achieve an optimal result.

Your Next Restylane Treatment

As Restylane is naturally biodegraded, you will eventually need to repeat the treatment to maintain the result. Return visits are typically made after 6-12 months for wrinkles and within 6 months for lips.  For skin rejuvenation with Restylane Skinboosters a typical treatment program is made up of three treatment sessions with 2-4 weeks apart and then repeat treatments approximately every 6 months.
