Restylane to Nasolabial Folds
Restylane injected into the nasolabial folds is a very common procedure. When performed by a well-trained plastic surgeon, most immediate and long-term side effects are exceedingly rare.
Some mild bruising and/or swelling in the area is possible immediately after the injection. Some injectors use a "mini-cannula" which, in my opinion, reduces the risk of bruising and swelling. A mini-cannula has a blunt tip that is not sharp. This allows the injection to be done with minimal cutting of tissue (compared to using a sharp-tipped needle) and in a more comfortable manner.
If this type of technique sounds interesting to you, I would recommend finding a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon in your area who can discuss use of cannulas for your injection.
Best of luck.
