Sure: It's advisable to allow a little time for any swelling after your treatment to resolve before tanning. If you were to have sun exposure directly after injectibles it wouldn't cause a major problem, but may exacerbate any swelling related to your procedure.

Facial Rejuvenation: Tanning from sun exposure or tanning beds is a primary contributing factor to facial aging. You can eventually go tanning after complete healing from Restylane (dermal fillers) injections but you are setting yourself up for skin damage that will require more involved treatments than the injections! my advice to patients seeking facial rejuvenation is to avoid facial tanning.

Yes, but...: Sun tanning gives you wrinkles and damages your skin. While you can indeed go tanning after getting restylane, (dermal fillers) maybe you should consider spray-tanning instead. This doesn't involve any harmful uv light exposure.

Tanning: No. tanning is a bad idea as a general rule.

What are risks of Restylane (dermal fillers) injections?

Safe/short lasting: There are pro's and con's to every procedure. The main risk with any injectable fillers are lumpiness, over-correction, under-correction, needing to repeat procedure periodically. There is a rare risk of injecting the filler into a blood vessel, which can lead to blood flow compromise. With blunt needles, or microcannulas, this risk is reduced. An advantage of Restylane (dermal fillers) that it can be dissolved.
