Restylane Lidocaine 1 x 1 ml Wrinkle Corrector
Restylane with lidocaine is used to add volume and fullness to the skin and to correct fine lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, on the forehead and the bilateral lines between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane can also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years old. Contains lidocaine, a powerful anesthetic, for a more comfortable injection.
Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
- Cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid (20 mg/ml)
- Lidocaine (0,3%)
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Corners of the mouth
Method of use:
- It is necessary to counsel the patient and discuss the appropriate indication, risks, benefits and expected responses to the Restylane treatment. Advise the patient of the necessary precautions before commencing the procedure.
- Assess the patient’s need for appropriate anesthetic treatment for managing comfort, i.e., topical anesthetic, local or nerve block.
- The patient’s face should be washed with soap and water and dried with a clean towel. Cleanse the area to be treated with alcohol or another suitable antiseptic solution.
- Before injecting, press rod carefully until a small droplet is visible at the tip of the needle.
- After insertion of the needle, and just before injection, the plunger rod should be withdrawn slightly to aspirate and verify that the needle is not intravascular.
- Restylane is administered using a thin gauge needle (29 G x ½”). The needle is inserted at an approximate angle of 30° parallel to the length of the wrinkle, fold, or lip. For nasolabial folds, Restylane should be injected into the mid-to-deep dermis. For lip augmentation, Restylane should be injected into the submucosal layer, care should be taken to avoid intramuscular injection. If Restylane is injected too superficially this may result in visible lumps and/or bluish discoloration.
- Inject Restylane applying even pressure on the plunger rod. It is important that the injection is stopped just before the needle is pulled out of the skin to prevent material from leaking out or ending up too superficially in the skin.
- Only correct to 100% of the desired volume effect. Do not overcorrect. With cutaneous deformities the best results are obtained if the defect can be manually stretched to the point where it is eliminated. The degree and duration of the correction depend on the character of the defect treated, the tissue stress at the implant site, the depth of the implant in the tissue and the injection technique.
- Typical usage for each treatment session is specific to the site as well as wrinkle severity. In a prospective study of midface wrinkle correction, the median total dose was 3.0 mL. Based on U.S. clinical studies, the maximum recommended dose per treatment is 6.0 mL for the nasolabial folds and 1.5 mL per lip per treatment.
- Serial puncture
- Linear threading (includes retrograde and antegrade)
