Medium sized particles - For moderate to severe folds such as the nasolabial lines or marionette lines.
Large sized particles - For volume replacement such as cheek or chin fillers.

With good injection technique coupled with application of skin cooling with icepacks, the discomfort is minimal and feels like small ant bites.
Furthermore, all Restylane Fillers contain a numbing ingredient (lidocaine) which further reduces pain during the treatment.
On average, Restylane Fillers can last between 12 to 18 months, sometimes even longer, depending on the area and volume of filler injected.
For example, areas with high mobility such as lips may have lower longevity than areas with lesser movement such as the cheeks or jawline.
In the market, there are many approved brands of fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyal, Belotero etc. Each brand has their own subtypes of fillers with unique selling points.
As such, it is important that your doctor is experienced in filler injection techniques as well as the various types of fillers so that each filler can be used to their best potential for optimal results.
