Frequently Asked Questions about our Restylane® Treatments
What are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a popular and effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore volume to the skin. They work by injecting a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid (HA) into the skin, which helps to hydrate, plump, and improve skin elasticity. As we age, the natural HA in our skin diminishes, causing wrinkles and folds to appear.
Restylane’s dermal fillers use a clear, non-animal stabilized HA that is designed to be the closest to the body’s natural HA, with minimal cross-linking. Approved by the US FDA, the Restylane portfolio has over 55 million treatments worldwide, making it a trusted and reputable option. If you are interested in rejuvenating your skin with dermal fillers, Restylane offers a safe and effective solution for a more youthful appearance.
Q & A
Dermal fillers are a popular injectable treatment used for multiple aesthetic goals, from reducing wrinkles to restoring facial volume or reshaping features. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a common type of dermal filler, with Restylane fillers utilizing HA gel technology. The HA used in Restylane fillers is made of transparent, naturally occurring sugars found in the skin that provide hydration, fullness, and elasticity. With these qualities, Restylane fillers are a safe and effective resource to help patients achieve their desired aesthetic results.
Our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. And while how your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors, the Restylane family of products may be able to help. Restylane works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, and eventually breaks down naturally.
Most Restylane appointments last less than an hour, and results can be seen almost immediately as the added volume begins to smooth away wrinkles.
You may have swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are normal and typically mild in severity, usually lasting around 2 weeks in the lips.
