What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is made of non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance found in all living things to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane® was the first hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA for cosmetic injection into subdermal facial tissue and has been in worldwide use ever since its approval. Restylane® is a clear, biodegradable gel that is biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid, and since it is non-animal based, there is no risk of animal-based allergic reaction of disease through the use of Restylane®.
Restylane® treatments do not require pre-testing and can be performed here at Mia Piel Med Aesthetics in a short amount of time. A thin needle is used to inject the medication in the desired area, and a block is used to keep the treatment relatively pain-free. The treatment is immediately visible and naturally improves the softness of your skin.
Restylane® treatments last twice as long as any collagen, so treatments are typically requested twice a year with touch-up treatments extending and enhancing the lasting effect of the injection. The frequency of the treatment depends on your desired appearance which can be discussed with your doctor.
