A: Restylane for lip augmentation

The result you may see with Restylane (or any other injectable) depends a lot on the person injecting the product.  Whether that person is a physician or a nurse, be sure that person has significant experience with injections and with dealing with the complications. Each patient has slightly different needs/wants when it comes to lip injections and this needs to be discussed prior to the injection.  Although these products are only temporary (lasting anywhere from 4 months to one year) if they are not injected properly, you may not be completely happy with the cosmetic outcome.  Ask to see some before and after photos if you have any concerns.

Best wishes,

Dr. Bruno
