What is Restylane® made of?
Restylane® is the first cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is a crystal-clear gel called NASHA™, or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA™ is biodegradable and completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid.
Is Restylane® safe?*
Yes. Restylane® has been used safely since 1996 worldwide. Because Restylane is non-animal-based and fully biocompatible, allergy testing is not required.
How long does Restylane® last?*
Studies have shown that the average treatment results last six months or even longer*. The unique NASHA™ technology helps maintain the cosmetic effect until the injected material is nearly gone.
How is Restylane® different from others?*
Restylane is a natural, cosmetic filler. In contrast, others may be a drug that blocks nerve transmission and relaxes the underlying muscles. Many patients have been very pleased after receiving treatment with a combination of both products.
