What is Restylane®?

Restylane® is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin.

Is Restylane® effective?

Yes. Clinical studies show that patients who were injected with Restylane® for the treatment of facial folds achieved an optimal cosmetic result. These results were sustained for a longer period of time, as much as twice as long, than with collagen.

How does Restylane® work?

Restylane® works in two ways: Upon injection, into the mid to deep dermis, the NASHA gel adds volume and fullness to smooth facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane integrates into wrinkles and folds. Restylane® integrates into dermal tissue, then attracts and binds to water molecules to help maintain volume.

How long does Restylane® last?

The average treatment results last six months or even longer.

Is any of the material left in the skin after it’s degraded?

No, unlike permanent fillers, Restylane® is completely degraded. Over time, NASHA gel is eliminated by the body, leaving absolutely no trace of the injected material.
