How much should Restylane cost just for lines around mouth and or plumping lips?
Cost of Restylane for the mouth and lips
The amount of Restylane needed to acheive volume enhancement of the perioral area depends on the degree of static wrinkling and soft tissue atrophy. At $500 per syringe, most patients will do well with one or two syringes.
Cost of Restylane injections
As written above, the cost of 1 syringe is one determinent, but where it's put and who it's put into are other important factors. Age ,depth of lines ,loss of elastin and collagen and indidual desires play an important part of the amount needed and the ultimate cost.
One syringe for mouth area usually sufficient
Generally one syringe of Restylane will correct the lines around the mouth, called nasolabial folds. The upper lip philtrum (central portion) can also be treated w/ the 1.0 ml syringe for a cost of @ $600, depending on your market. Expect mild pinkness and swelling for 24hrs. and avoid aspirin to minimize bruising. An additional syringe may be needed for optimal correction, which would increase your costs.
Restylane for vertical lip lines
Vertical lip lines can be well treated with volume filler injections, most notably Restylane and Juvederm. While both products are similar, different physicians have a personal preference for one or the other. Globally, my preference is for Juvederm. Cost can vary between $400-800 depending on what product you need.
In the situation you describe, where vertical lines around the lip are the area of concern, I usually will recommend Restylane. The reason is that Restylane comes in a smaller sized syringe, which is less expensive. Filling out the white roll of the lip (where you usually put lip liner) does very well with smoothing out mild to moderate vertical lip lines. Deep lines usually require dermabrasion or resurfacing in order to be completely treated, but can be reduced with volume enhancement alone. Filling out the white roll, the so called "Parisian Lip", creates the illusion of lip enlargement in addition to smoothing out the lines. This treatment usually does not take a full 1cc syringe. Restylane 0.4cc syringe (actually has 0.6cc in it) is often more than enough for this lip liner effect. If more plumping of the lip is desired, then a full syringe is usually needed. In that circumstance I will treat with Juvederm or Restylane 1cc syringes.
Restylane is very efficient for this area, but everyone is different. Most patients need only one syringe, but often two needed for older patients. Price for the syringe and injection ranges widely around the US from $500-750 with NYC being typically one of the most expensive. More experienced doctors can often command slightly higher prices. Average nationwide about $550-600.
Restylane is priced by the syringe. The perioral area will require 1-2 syringes depending on the areas you want to treat. The smile lines usually take one sryinge, the marionette lines one syringe. They are priced from $450-$550 per syringe.
Cost of restylane for injecting area around mouth
Generally the cost of restylane is priced according to syringe. This typically costs about 450-650 per syringe. It customarily takes about 1 syringe for the lip area. If you include the smile lines (nasolabial folds), these may require 2 additional syringes.
