Restylane is a dermal filler that is used to replace lost volume and smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, by replacing the body’s natural hyaluronic acid, which is lost during the normal aging process.
Restylane is made from hyaluronic acid that has been modified to last longer than it’s body’s natural counterpart. Body natural hyaluronic acid in the human skin, provides volume and fullness to the skin. One of the effects of skin aging is reduced production of hyaluronic acid.
Pestylane comes in the form of a clear gel, which is injected into the affected areas, such a wrinkles, creases, furrows, lips or acne scars and the results are seen immediately. Restylane is typically used for correction of more superficial lines and for lip augmentation.
