Restylane®

Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds including deep and superficial nasolabial folds. Restylane® is the first and only cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. There is virtually no risk of animal based disease transmission or allergic reaction. Restylane® lasts 3 to 6 months, which is significantly longer than collagen, so treatments are typically scheduled two to three times a year. With our extensive experience we have found that having a touchup treatment before the product has fully dissipated will enhance the lasting effect.
