A package of Restylane 1ml with Lidocaine comes with one 1ml prefilled syringe. The package also comes with two 27G needles.
Restylane 1ml with Lidocaine is a clear, sterile, and viscoelastic gel that fights signs of facial aging with a low chance of causing pain. Using Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA), this product adds volume into the mid-to-deep dermis to correct moderate to severe wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Additionally, this filler can act as an implant for lip enhancement. This FDA-approved gel is suitable for patients over 21 years of age who wish to maintain their youthful glow and radiance. As the first product to use a synthetic, biocompatible hyaluronic acid, Restylane is highly efficacious, as evaluators in one study deemed that 95% of patients treated with it displayed dermal improvements 18 months after an initial injection of the product.
This product is made up of sodium chloride, 20mg/ml of hyaluronic acid, phosphate buffer pH 6.8–7.4 q.s., and 0.3% lidocaine.
Hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule, is the prime component in this filler that supports the skin’s vitality. This component attracts and binds to water molecules to provide the skin with ample hydration and volume. Furthermore, this acid boosts collagen and elastin synthesis to create a firmer dermal complexion. Unfortunately, the natural concentration of this acid in the body depletes with the onset of aging.
Restylane’s solution to this is to introduce stabilized and synthetic hyaluronic acid in the skin to fill the volume of marked imperfections and create a radiant glow. Made from Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA) sourced from Streptococcus bacteria, Restylane’s hyaluronic acid is also cross-linked through the use of BDDE, which means Restylane’s gel network lasts longer and has a slower degradation rate inside the skin than non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid. With minimal modifications and the thorough elimination of impurities, Restylane is biocompatible and does not provoke any severe adverse reactions.
Lastly, lidocaine reduces the pain and burning sensation of the injection process for patients.
How to Use
How Do I Use or Apply Restylane 1ml with Lidocaine?
Before proceeding with the treatment, educate the patient on the expected results, indications, precautions, and potential side effects of this filler while identifying the condition of their skin. Clean the area with an antiseptic solution.
Prepare the syringe and the needle by inserting the needle to the Luer lock system of the syringe. Before the injection, remove all air in the needle by slowly pushing the plunger rod until a small droplet appears at the tip of the needle.
Advance the needle into the site of treatment, making sure to avoid any blood vessels. Inject this filler into the mid-to-deep dermis layer of the skin to correct wrinkles and folds. For lip correction, apply the filler into the submucosal layer. To ensure full and specific coverage, use the serial puncture, linear threading, or cross-hatching technique for lip augmentation accordingly. Just before removing the needle, stop the injection to avoid any leakage. In a study on Restylane, the median total dose for treating midface wrinkles was 3.0–6.0ml and 1.5ml per lip. Avoid overcorrection.
Massage the treated area(s) to ensure even distribution of the filler. Dispose of all needles and syringes using the appropriate biohazard disposal methods.

How Long Does Restylane 1ml with Lidocaine Last?
In one clinical study, this filler delivered significant improvements for 18 months after the initial injection. However, this study also provided retreatment at four and a half and/or nine months to participants.
The filler must be used prior to the expiration date printed on its packaging and should be stored at a temperature of up to 25°C.
