How Long Does Restylane Last?

restylane dermal filler

Dermal fillers are a great way to get plumper, youthful-looking skin, and Restylane is one of the best options on the market. This treatment can address wrinkles or fine lines that face creams simply can’t erase. At Eternal Dermatology & Aesthetics in Fulton, MD, we specialize in this treatment and can help your skin look naturally glowing, gorgeous, and wrinkle-free in no time.

How Long Does Restylane Last?

Results can and do vary, depending on each person and where you have the treatment done on your body. Generally, most people enjoy this treatment’s effects for six months to a year. Talk to our team about your specific circumstances and the look that you would like to achieve, and we can give you a further understanding of what to expect.

Additionally, many people will start to see great results almost right away, within two days of your appointment. You’ll find that your skin looks naturally younger, plumper, and healthier. The transformative results of this treatment are only one piece of the puzzle. Treatment sessions are very short, most lasting only about half an hour or less, so convenience is a huge part of the appeal, too.

Dermal Fillers Explained

Restylane is a dermal filler designed to iron away fine lines or wrinkles and give your skin a dewy, healthy look. It’s one of several dermal fillers that we offer at our office and is specifically designed to give your skin a bit of volume and erase surface signs of aging.

Dermal fillers differ from other cosmetic treatments, like Botox, because they add volume to your face rather than specifically inhibiting muscular movement. As our faces tend to thin out as we age, dermal fillers can provide more structure and enhance our beauty in subtle, practical ways.

Understanding if Fillers Are Right for You

Dermal fillers are exceptionally popular because they are painless, non-invasive treatments that require zero downtime and offer transformative results. They are FDA-approved and suitable for anyone who wants to reduce the outward signs of aging and have smoother, younger-looking skin overall. Plus, you can customize your treatment plan to address specific areas and get the most out of your session.

Benefits of Restylane

Since every patient is totally unique, the benefits you get from this treatment might be above and beyond the more universal ones. Talk to our team about what you can realistically expect after your treatment session.

Corrective and Preventative

Restylane is both a corrective and preventative treatment, especially when it comes to smile lines. These lines are tough to minimize and prevent, but this treatment does an exceptional job with your existing smile lines and stopping new ones from forming.

Use It Anywhere

One of the key selling points of this treatment is its versatility. You can use it on various areas of your face or hands to plump up the skin. Since we all have different needs when it comes to aging and beauty, this treatment’s near-universal ability to help different parts of the body makes it an intelligent choice.


Most people find this treatment virtually painless, and there’s no downtime afterward, unlike invasive treatments. This quality makes it an excellent option for people who want to get fast, impressive results without having to deal with downtime. It’s easy and safe, and your sessions are a breeze.

These are just some of the benefits you’ll find from this treatment.

Enjoying Your Dermal Fillers for the Long Run

There are a few things that you can do to make the most out of your dermal fillers and enjoy your flawless, wrinkle-free complexion for as long as possible.

Stay Out of the Sun

The sun can wreak havoc on your skin in the best of times, but it’s even more important to shield yourself from the sun’s rays after your Restylane treatment if you want your fillers to look their best and last. If you need to go out in the sun, wear strong SPF and a hat to shade your face.

Additionally, you’ll want to stay out of saunas or artificial sunbeds right after your treatment.

Sleep on Your Back

Sleep on your back to allow the fillers to settle in for the most natural-looking results. Try to sleep this way for at least a few days after your treatment session.

Don’t Rub Your Face

Although it might be tempting to rub or touch your face right after this treatment, try not to disturb the fillers. Instead, wait about six hours after your treatment to carefully wash your face. You can also wear makeup after your treatment if you’d like, but remember to be gentle and wait six hours before doing so.
