Restylane is the smart and easy way to add volume and smoothness to your skin. Restylane is based on a hyaluronic acid gel that closely resembles the body's own hyaluronic acid. It is long lasting, but not permanent.
How do they work?
The idea is simpleRestylane is a cosmetic dermal filler that adds volume within the skin. It consists of hyaluronic acid. In the human body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to skin.
After treatment with Restylane the hydrophilic, or "water loving," nature of the hyaluronic acid molecules allows it to bind many times it's own weight in water as it slowly breaks down. This process helps maintain volume for about six months.
Are they safe?
Restylane is the world's most studied cosmetic dermal filler with more than a decade of use. Restylane has well-defined safety profiles and is approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Restylane has been used in over 1.4 million treatments in the U.S. and is available in more than 70 countries, with dozens of studies published in medical literature. Clinical studies have shown no significant differences in the safety of Restylane.
Restylane contains no animal proteins. This may limit the risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reactions. Both products contain trace amounts of gram positive bacterial proteins and are contraindicated for patients with a history of allergies to such material. No allergy testing is required before use.
After your treatment with Restylane, you may have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness. This will normally last less than seven days.
