Youthful skin is rich in hyaluronic acid, which is a large, complex molecule that binds water and thereby hydrates the skin and keeps it fresh, firm and healthy. As we age, the function and distribution of hyaluronic acid in our skin gradually changes which leads to loss of skin elasticity, leading to the characteristic signs of aging.
Restylane® is synthetic hyaluronic acid in form of an injectable gel. Restylane® enhances your looks in a natural and subtle way by boosting the skin’s hydration system and restoring youthful volume to the skin.
Restylane® when injected into the skin replenishes your own natural stocks of hyaluronic acid. It works at a deep dermal level to stimulate the production of collagen and improve skin elasticity, softening the appearance of facial lines and restoring youthful volume and shape to the face.
A Restylane® procedure is very quick and the results can be seen immediately. A topical anesthetic may be applied to lessen the discomfort caused by the injection. Side effects are very rare and short lasting, and include occasional bruising and swelling at the injection site.
