What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a dermal filler that treats facial wrinkles and folds. Unlike other dermal fillers such as BOTOX® Cosmetic®, Restylane® is a completely biodegradable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in the human body. It is generally safer to use than animal-based dermal fillers, which can cause allergic reactions. As the product is absorbed by the body, it stimulates the production of collagen fibers in the skin that are responsible for healthy texture and elasticity. The results look completely natural and typically last for six or more months.
Like other injectable treatments, Restylane® takes very little time to administer. Depending on the area being treated, the process can take anywhere from 10 minutes up to an hour with very little downtime. After first applying a topical anesthetic, our practitioner will inject small amounts of Restylane® into the target areas to achieve the desired results. Patients typically begin to see smoother, younger-looking skin within a couple of days. Treatments can be repeated as necessary, usually every 6 to 12 months.
Benefits of Restylane®
Restylane® is one of our longer-lasting dermal fillers. Like other injectable options, Restylane® is an effective ways to recapture a healthy, youthful look without the need for surgery. Similar to JUVÉDERM™, the injectable is derived from a naturally occurring substance and is generally safe for patients who may be prone to allergic reactions.
