Restylane is a safe and natural dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds.
Collagen is a protein that is found naturally in your body to give support to your skin. With time (or accelerated by sun or smoke damage), your body’s collagen weakens forming wrinkles in skin.
Restylane helps to replenish the skin’s natural collagen support layer and provide additional support. The result is a smoother face.
Restylane is a cosmetic dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body. The hyaluronic acid also creates volume in the face, giving it a healthy, youthful appearance. When Restylane is injected directly into areas where the body’s collagen has been weakened, depressions can be raised to the level of surrounding skin.
This smoothes and minimizes facial lines and most types of scars. In addition, skin texture is improved and has a softer and more even tone. Restylane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultrafine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and quick, and results are practically instantaneous. A dental block or numbing cream may be used before the Restylane treatment to optimize your comfort during the short procedure.
