Restylane

Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.

Restylane is a cosmetic dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is a crystal-clear gel called NASHA™ or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid.

Restylane maintains its shape using the body's own moisture. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is hydrophilic or "water loving." As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide lasting results.

Unlike rooster-derived hyaluronic acids and bovine collagen products, Restylane is free from animal proteins. This limits any risk of animal-based disease transmissions or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins.*

After your treatment, you might have some redness or swelling. This will normally last less than seven days. Sunbathing and cold outdoor activities should be avoided until any redness or swelling disappear. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or under 18, you shouldn't use Restylane. Restylane® is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. It is a clear, synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It carries little risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for treatment are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows), the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth) and the lips. With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane remains in your skin for over six months. Schedule your consultation for a no-incision eyelid tuck.

Restylane is a cosmetic filler that creates volume in the depression of a fold or wrinkle. Most often it is used in the nasolabial folds. It consists of non-animal based hyaluronic acid which reduces the risk of allergic reaction and eliminates animal-based disease transmission . Unlike with collagen injection, prior allergy testing is not required. Restylane is biodegradable and compatible with human hyaluronic acid.

Prior to treatment to avoid increased bruising or bleeding, patients should avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, or high Vitamin E doses. Patients with prior cold sores may also be at risk for a recurrence.

Restylane is injected with a tiny needle right into the depression of the skin fold. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. There is some discomfort so patients may wish to have localized anesthesia prior to injection. Some erythema and swelling may persist for a few days after the procedure. The site of injection must be iced after the procedure for 24 hours. Returning to work right after the procedure is not recommended.

Restylane differs from BOTOX®. It fills static lines whereas BOTOX® relaxes muscles smoothing dynamic lines. Some patients get their desired look by using both products. Restylane lasts up to 6 months

Restylane® has been used in more than 3 million treatments7 in over 70 countries and is now approved in the U.S. for the treatment of facial wrinkles and folds.
