Restylane® is a crystal clear injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. Restylane® is nonanimal based and free from animal protein. Allergy pretesting is not necessary.
Restylane® is injected into the skin with an ultrafine needle to plump the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) or your lips.
Restylane® effects generally last six months and gradually disappears from the body. If you are treated again at 4 ½ or 9 months after your first treatment, Restylane® can last up to 18 months.
