Restylane is the most used injectable cosmetic dermal filler in the United States. It helps to diminish facial lines, reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, and restore volume and fullness in the face. Restylane helps restore facial contours with minimally invasive, clinically proven, natural-looking outcomes. Restylane is a non-surgical process with no downtime, and its effects are virtually instantaneous.
What is Restylane
Wrinkles are part of life. As we age, our skin becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. This in part is due that hyaluronic acid (HA) diminishes, causing the skin to lose volume, while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear. Restylane is a brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to help restore a youthful appearance.
Why Choose Restylane
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance in your skin and body that helps provide fullness and elasticity. High concentrations of HA are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. This compound keeps skin hydrated and firm through its ability to bind water molecules. Hyaluronic acid is also found in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. The HA in Restylane has been extracted and reformulated to become the most popular of injectable fillers.
How Does Restylane Work
When you choose to get a Restylane treatment, your medical professional will evaluate your facial appearance and examine the areas of your face to be augmented. Then the injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. Prior to injecting, you may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.
Restylane is a crystal-clear gel that is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. After injection, your healthcare practitioner may gently massage the treated area to even out the result. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
The Restylane Procedure
The injection usually takes only a few moments per site. The process may be as short as 15 minutes, contingent on the number of sites being treated. Most patients can resume most normal activities right away, but it is generally recommended that you avoid intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising. Both women and men enjoy dermal fillers because there is no downtime or recovery period and results appear almost instantly. Additionally, Restylane delivers lasting results.

Restylane can add volume to deep wrinkles, hollow cheeks, soften facial creases, smooth away moderate to severe wrinkles, help plump lips and improve the appearance of recessed scars. It can help contour certain aspects of the face as well. The results of soft tissue augmentation using Restylane are apparent immediately and will last from several months to several years depending on the filler used and the patient injected.

The Science Behind Restylane
- NASHA is the patented non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid technology that was the first in the world to create a stabilized Hyaluronic Acid for reliable aesthetic treatments with a proven safety record.
- OBT stands for Optimal Balance Technology and delivers a gel texture intended for a more even distribution in the skin for a softer look.
The most common side effects include treatment site reactions such as redness, pain, and tenderness. These side effects generally disappear within one week after injection. Be sure to discuss your specific recovery plan with your physician prior to scheduling your injections.
Fillers are very safe and have no permanent side effects. However, effective and safe administration of Restylane requires a physician with specialized training and a thorough understanding of facial anatomy.
