Restylane is an FDA-approved dermal filler designed to add volume and fullness to skin. Restylane corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Containing hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar which occurs naturally in the body, Restylane® treatments can be used to revitalize the skin, diminish wrinkles and aging lines, give volume to lips or cheeks, or contour the chin, forehead and nose.
This product is biodegradable, allowing it to integrate into your skin and be gradually removed by natural processes without leaving any residue. This gel is produced biotechnologically by natural fermentation in a sterile environment. Because it is not derived from animal sources, there is no need to run an allergy test for common food allergies prior to an injection.
Most treatments last up to six months, although some patients see results for even longer. The product is marketed and sold in more than 65 countries around the world, and has been used in more than 10 million procedures in the United States.
