Fda Panel Recommends Restylane For Lips

Today, April 27, the FDA's General and Plastic Surgery Devices Advisory Panel has recommended that the FDA expand the approved use of Restylane, a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, to include lip augmentation.

Currently only approved to treat facial wrinkles and folds, Restylane was the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA for use in the United States. It first launched in January 2004 after its FDA approval on December 12, 2003.

It's easy to see why Restylane makes a great choice for lip augmentation. Restylane's water-loving nature attracts and binds water molecules to help maintain volume. In the event that the FDA follows the panel's recommendation, Restylane could become the first and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler in the country that is intended for use in the lips. We are anxiously awaiting the big news.
