What is Restylane ?
Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Restylane was FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles in 2003, but has been widely used in Europe and other parts of the world for many years. Millions of treatments have been performed in over 70 countries.
Restylane is used to replenish the dermal volume loss that allows wrinkles to form. It can also be used to fill in acne scars. Restylane has a very low incidence of allergic reactions and requires no skin testing prior to treatment. Restylane is not made from animals. The chemically stabilized hyaluronic acid found in Restylane can remain in the dermis for many months.
Restylane erases lines and folds by adding volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift the skin and smooth out the wrinkle or fold. When Restylane is used to fill in these folds, the result is an overall soft, youthful and attractive appearance. Restylane can help you achieve this look in less than 30 minutes. Most patients having Restylane treatments can use makeup to cover the area immediately following the treatment and many return to work after their Restylane.
