What is Restylane®?

Restalyne logoAs the skin ages, it gradually loses some of its collagen and fat. These are the materials that prevent the skin from becoming saggy. Thus, as we age, our skin can become wrinkled and lined.

Dermal fillers, such as Restylane injections, help to restore our skin to its former youthful appearance. During Restylane treatments, material is injected into the skin in areas where it needs to be plumped up again and made to look firmer.

Dermal fillers come in different thicknesses, and in general, the thicker the product, the deeper it is injected into the dermal layer of the skin to help plump out fine to deep lines and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers tend to be broadly classified as being either non-permanent or permanent in their effect by both manufacturers and practitioners using these products.

These products contain Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the spaces between the cells of body tissues. Hyaluronic acid has now largely replaced collagen as the favorite dermal filler among cosmetic experts. This is because it is more likely to be compatible with our bodies than collagen, and so people are less likely to be allergic to it and do not require a test prior to Restylane treatments.
