Instant and long-lasting wrinkle correction.
Restylane is safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Restylane is the first and only 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 hyaluronic acid.
Unlike other hyaluronic acid-based products, such as those made from rooster combs, only Restylane is non-animal-based. This quality virtually eliminates any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction.
Restylane requires no pretesting, but you should take a few precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, no-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment, because these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Also, if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another recurrence.
The answer to long-lasting wrinkle correction is Restylane®. If you’re considering a wrinkle correction treatment, there are a few things you should know about Restylane.
Yes. Restylane has been used safely by dermatologists and plastic surgeons since 1996 worldwide. Because Restylane is not-animal-based and fully biocompatible, allergy testing is not required. There is virtually no risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction. The most commonly reported side effects were temporary redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within two to three days.
Restylane has been used in more than one million treatments in over 60 countries to correct a variety of wrinkles and to enhance the appearance and fullness of lips. However, it is currently indicated in the U.S. only for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
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.
Restylane lasts twice as long as collagen, so treatments are typically scheduled twice a year. Evidence shows that having a touch-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated will enhance the lasting effect.
Restylane is a natural, cosmetic filler. In contrast, Botox is a drug that blocks verve transmission and relaxes the underlying muscles. Many patients have been very pleased after receiving treatment with both products.
Restylane is proven to deliver a longer-lasting effect than traditional collagen, with virtually no risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction. In addition, bovine collagen is derived from animals (cow) and requires an allergy test. Because Restylane is non-animal-based, it can be administered without pretesting, so no waiting is required.
Beauty is now far less fleeting than previously thought.
Restylane® is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultra fine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and convenient, and results are practically instantaneous. TO optimize your comfort during the short procedure, your physician may anesthetize the treatment area.
Restylane is a customized procedure based on your specific needs, so the cost will vary from patient to patient. In general, the cost of Restylane is comparable to the cost of similar procedures. Because Restylane is longer lasting, it proves to be very economical over the long term. Please consult your physician to determine the best recommendation for your particular needs.
Restylane maintains its shape using the body’s own moisture. So perhaps it’s not surprising that the most basic element of natural beauty, water, holds the key to the long-lasting results you can expect.
Medics Aesthetics is a subsidiary of Medicis®, a well-established dermatology company dedicated to clear and beautiful skin.
The wait is over. Now that you have the answers to some important questions, why wait? Restylane® is a safe, natural formulation, so there are no delays for allergy testing prior to treatment. The simple procedure can be done during your lunch hour. And the effects are immediate.
If you want to enjoy a smoother, more youthful appearance for the next six months, or even longer, ask your physician if Restylane® is right for you. For further details about Restylane, including product information, visit www.RestylaneUSA.com.
