Restylane is a line of hyaluronic acid–based facial fillers. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our skin, especially in connective tissue and depletes as we age resulting in loss of volume. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected into the skin to physically lift and sculpt it, correcting wrinkles, folds, scars and asymmetries of the face. 

Dermal fillers have the most serious consequences of all the injectables and must be injected by trained professionals. The Restylane family of products are indicated for patients over the age of 21, and include a variety of options depending on desired results.

What does the treatment involve?

For Dermal filler treatment with Restylane “R”(registered trade mark please always) a 1 -2 hour appointment is required and includes a full consultation prior to treatment.

Restylane is injected directly into the skin in the area that you want to be treated. Restylane works immediately with final results in two weeks. Restylane will typically take effect immediately. However the side effects which include bruising, redness and swelling can take up to two weeks to reside.
