Generally, when you feel like you would like more correction. Medicis, the company that makes Restylane has embarked on a campaign to educate patients and physicians to use Restylane again before it is totally used up. They feel that ultimately you will need less Restylane and can more successfully and easily maintain the look you desire.

You can feel the area and you should be able to tell the HA . The usual expectancy of the HA is 6 months. Check back ith your surgeon.
