Restylane

Restylane is a crystal-clear, long-lasting gel used to smooth out facial wrinkles and folds, and to fill out lips. It contains non-animal, stabilized, hyaluronic acid which is similar to that naturally found in our skin. When injected into the skin, the Restylane gel helps to restore the natural skin hyaluronic acid that is lost with age.

Restylane is a non-animal derived product, thus the risk of allergic reactions is extremely rare. Therefore Restylane can be used immediately, at the first office visit, without prior skin testing.

Restylane comes in 3 choices of gels, which can be used individually or in combination, in order to achieve different effects, from eliminating fine lines, to enhancing facial contours, and sculpting perfect lips.

Restylane Fine Lines is used for correcting superficial lines, for example lines around the eyes and mouth.

Restylane is used for medium depth lines and wrinkles, and defining the lip border.

Perlane is used for correcting deep folds, for shaping facial contours, and for volume augmentation of the lips.

Each treatment session takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes. Results are immediate and long-lasting, but not permanent. The duration of effect depends on many factors such as age, skin type, and muscle activity. Most patients choose to have touch-up treatments 4 to 6 months after the initial treatment.

Restylane treatments are simple, quick and very safe. No pre-testing is needed. The Restylane gel gives natural volume and smoothes out wrinkles instantaneously, resulting in healthy, natural looking skin. After the treatment, some swelling and redness may occur at the injection site. This typically resolves spontaneously within 1 to 2 days after injection.
