Restylaneback to patient info

Why do we lose facial volume as we get older?

Youthful skin is rich in hyaluronic acid (HA):  a substance that binds water, hydrates the skin and promotes all-important softness and fullness.  But as we age, the HA in our skin gradually becomes less efficient.  Inevitably this leads to loss of facial fullness and the tell-tale signs of aging.

How does Restylane work?

Restylane effectively gives our own HA a helping hand, instantly boosting the skinís hydration system to restore volume and lift the skin to smooth away and soften the appearance of facial lines.

Restylane has the additional advantages of stimulating collagen production and improiving skin elasticity.

How long does the effect of Restylane last?

Restylane treatment usually takes no more than 30 minutes, so can be easily fitted around your other commitments.  You can see the results instantly.  Itís long lasting too:  for up to 6 to 9 months in lips and around a year in other facial areas.  As it is not permanent you can remain in control of your looks in the months and years ahead.

How safe is Restylane?

Restylane has been proven with more than 10 years of experience to be effective, long lasting and safe with over 6 million treatments worldwide as further testimony.  The unique and patented NASHA (non animal stabilised hyaluronic acid) gel from which Restylane is made closely resembles the natural HA found in our skin.  This not only ensures the prolonged duration of treatment results but also minimises the risk for inflammatory reactions.
