Restylane was the first soft-tissue filler to be made with hyaluronic acid, which naturally exists in the human body. It's non-animal based, biodegradable, and completely biocompatible, so you won't need to have any allergy testing.
Restylane is injected in small amounts using an ultra fine needle. Discomfort is minimal. You may experience only temporary redness and swelling at the injection site, which generally disappears in just 2 to 3 days. Treatments are performed right in our office, generally take less than half an hour, and improvements are immediate.
With Restylane treatments, you can keep your wrinkles away for 6 months or more; therefore, you'll need only 2 treatments a year. Our Restylane patients find that a touch-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated can further enhance these long-lasting results.
Restylane is a dermal filler that corrects wrinkles by filling them out from underneath. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a product that blocks nerve transmission, temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles that cause facial wrinkles. Collagen is derived from animals and therefore requires an allergy skin test prior to injection. Restylane is a completely natural soft-tissue filler that is made without animal products, requires no pre-injection allergy test, and provides immediate, long-lasting results.
