Restylane

Restylane (misspelled as restyline, restalyn, restylan, restylene, restalyne, restylne, restalane, or restilane) is a dermal filler designed to smooth away wrinkles and folds (wrinkle filler or facial filler). Restylane and Perlane provide rejuvenating cosmetic beauty treatments for a natural, younger-looking skin.

Restylane is a crystal clear gel that is injected into the skin (or for some treatments just under) in small amounts to restore volume and structure. It is based on hyaluronic acid, similar to the body?s own hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is non-animal which means that no skin tests are needed and that there is a minimal risk of allergic or hypersensitive reactions.

Restylane is suitable for:

  • Wrinkle treatment
  • Lip enhancement (lip augmentation)
  • Face contouring
  • Skin rejuvenation

Restylane can be used on the following areas:

  • Upper face
    • Frown lines
    • Worry lines
    • Eye brow
  • Middle face
    • Crow's feet
    • Tired eyes
    • Nose
    • Cheek augmentation
  • Lower face
    • Nose to mouth lines
    • Smoker's lines
    • Lip line
    • Smile lines
    • Sad mouth corners
    • Lip enhancement
    • Chin augmentation
  • Skin rejuvenation
    • Face
    • Decolletage and neck
    • Hands

Restylane Treatment

A treatment with Restylane only takes about 15-30 minutes. It is performed by injecting Restylane through a fine needle into your skin (or for some treatments just under) to fill wrinkles or add volume, shape your face or lips or rejuvenate your skin.

Post-treatment

After treatment you will receive post-treatment guidelines. It is normal to experience some post-treatment discomfort, such as redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the treatment site which can be concealed with makeup. This typically subsides after a few days, up to one to two weeks. Following treatment, there is sometimes a need for a touch-up treatment to achieve an optimal result.

Follow-on treatments

As Restylane is naturally biodegraded, you will eventually need to repeat the treatment to maintain the result. Return visits are typically made after 6-12 months for wrinkles and within 6 months for lips.  For skin rejuvenation with Restylane Vital a typical treatment program is made up of three treatment sessions with 2-4 weeks apart and then repeat treatments every 4 to 6 months.

Restylane vs. Radiesse

Similar to Restylane, Radiesse is ideal for diminishing the appearance of wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It is also effective in treating maxillofacial and vocal chord defects, as well as addressing facial wasting in HIV patients. Radiesse is administered using a few quick, easy injections to visibly plump and smooth the skin's outer layers. Perhaps the biggest advantage of Radiesse is that it lasts longer than other dermal fillers - up to two years - because it stimulates new collagen growth beneath the surface of the skin for natural facial rejuvenation. The biocompatible materials are reabsorbed into the body over time. On the down side, Radiesse is more expensive than Restylane.
