Important Safety consideration of Restylane®

Restylane® restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). After your treatment, you might have some swelling and redness. This will normally last less than Seven days. Although rare, red or swollen small bumps may occur. If you have had herpes before, an injection can cause the herpes to return. In rare circumstances, the doctor may inject into a blood vessel, which can damage the skin. To avoid bruising and bleeding, you should not use Restylane® if you have recently used drugs that thin your blood or prevent clotting. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or under 18, you shouldn't use Restylane®.

Restylane® should not be used by people with previous bad allergies, particularly to certain microorganisms known as gram positive bacteria, or by people with previous had allergies to drugs that have required in-hospital treatment. Restylane® should not be injected anywhere except the skin or just under the skin.

The use of Restylane® at the site of skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. Use of Restylane® in these instances could delay healing or make your skin problems worse.
