You can have a natural beauty lift with the body’s own material. 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 and all-natural enhancement, gently and safely*.
Since it was launched in 1996, Restylane® has undergone extensive histological and clinical studies with an increasing body of evidence relating to its ease of use, tolerability and effectiveness. Today, more than 1.5 million treatments have been successfully carried out worldwide.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a clear, gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. The human body produces its own version of hyaluronic acid, and this synthetic version is meant to mimic the body’s natural kind. Restylane is an FDA-approved filler that can be used in the lips, under the eyes, at smile lines, marionette lines, and corners of the mouth. Certain Restylane products can also be used on the hands.
Restylane comes in a variety of formulas meant for specific areas on the face and body.
The original Restylane formula adds volume to the face, lips, and more.
This Restylane formula can provide a much more subtle appearance to the lips, which allows a less dramatic change.
Restylane Lyft can add volume to the backs of the hands, cheeks, and midface area.
Restylane Defyne & Restylane Refyne
This formula of Restylane allows for more fullness in laugh lines, smile lines, and can help smooth wrinkles and folds in the face.
How does it work?
Just like other fillers, Restylane is injected into the area that needs more volume. This works by placing volume beneath the skin where volume has been previously lost. With more volume beneath the skin, skin looks smoother and more youthful*. Unlike Botox, however, Restylane does not paralyze the muscles in the face, which allows continued unrestricted movement of the face. Smile all day long with Restylane!
How long does it take to see results?
The great thing about Restylane is that you can see immediate results directly after your filler appointment. Appointments are usually short and don’t usually result in downtime, so you can begin enjoying a fuller, fresher look immediately following your appointment with Abington Aesthetic & Laser Medical Center. However, bruising and swelling are a usual side effect of any injection site which resolves quickly, so be prepared just in case!
How long does it last?
Patients who have Restylane injected can see improvements for up to 18 months in the nasolabial folds, up to 12 months in the cheeks, and up to 6 months in the lips*. Length can vary by patient, but it’s important to note that Restylane is not permanent.
