What is Restylane?
Restylane is a FDA-approved dermal filler made of a biodegradable, non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin.
Where is Restylane used?
Restylane is most commonly used for lip enhancement (volume and contouring). It is used to diminish wrinkles and aging lines of the face such as the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines), melomental folds (sad mouth corners), “crows feet” and forehead wrinkles (frown lines). It may also be used for filling aging related facial hollows and “orbital troughs” (under and around the eyes), as well as for cheek volume and contouring of the chin, forehead and nose. Restylane can also be used to revitalize the skin by increasing elasticity structure, without the goal of adding volume, for example in the face, hands and decolletage.
