Restylane® is a cosmetic rejuvenation product known as a dermal filler. Fillers are often used in conjunction with Botox for a more balanced overall aesthetic effect. Botox decreases lines by stopping the movement that causes them, whereas fillers restore volume to diminish lines and folds. Fillers are also commonly used for lip enhancement.
Restylane products have distinct advantages over other fillers. The substance injected, hyaluronic acid, is already in our skin, so it is not recognized by the immune system as a foreign substance, thereby making adverse reactions extremely uncommon. The results can last up to 12 months and Restylane products, unlike thicker fillers such as silicon, can be injected with tiny needles, thereby decreasing discomfort.
