FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – What you need to know
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a range of products for facial aesthetic treatments made in Sweden. They are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour and create volume in facial features such as the cheeks, chin and lips, and to revitalise the skin. Restylane is a gel based on stabilized hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that naturally exists in your body. The gel is injected into the skin through a needle or cannula by a trained Restylane practitioner (in the UK a Restylane practitioner is a medical professional such as Plastic Surgeon, Cosmetic Doctor, Dermatologist, Costmetic Dentist, or Aesthetic Nurse). . Since 2010, the Restylane range has been extended to include a skincare range which can be used in conjunction with Restylane treatments, or as a skincare regime in it’s own right.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. It binds water and can act as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body such as joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients, regulating water balance and giving volume and structure to our skin.
What are the benefits of Restylane?
A treatment with Restylane provides an easy way to enhance your looks. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly, and lasts around one year*. With Restylane you will achieve a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression as Restylane is not a toxin. Remember your face changes over time, Restylane allows you to control you looks subtly as you age. Restylane is the most scientifically documented HA based dermal filler in the world with comprehensive studies that support its safety and efficacy. Restylane has been used in over 15 million treatments worldwide since 1996.
Why should I choose Restylane?
Restylane resembles the body’s own hyaluronic acid, which reduces the risk of allergic reaction. Restylane is the most tried and tested HA dermal filler available today. Restylane has long-lasting results, but is not permanent – allowing you to change your look subtly over time. It is clinically proven with extensive clinical documentation and has been the most widely used.
What areas can be treated?
Restylane products can be used to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin, and revitalise the skin. The most common areas treated are: 1. Nose to mouth lines (the nasolabial folds) 2. Between the eyebrows (the glabella lines) 3. Lip enhancement (adding volume, shape and hydrating lips) 4. Cheeks and chin (shaping and contouring) 5. Back of the hands, décolletage, face, neck (skin revitalisation).
What does Restylane treatment involve?
Start by making an appointment with a qualified practitioner. During consultation be prepared to discuss your treatment expectations. After discussion of what you wish to achieve and assessment of your treatment needs, your practitioner will recommend which Restylane treatment is most suitable for you.
After the consultation, and if you are happy to proceed, your practitioner will help you complete a medical history form and you will need to sign a consent form before treatment can progress.
Restylane fillers are injected into the skin in small amounts using a very fine needle or cannula. The gel provides natural volume to smooth away the appearance of lines and wrinkles, enhance facial shape, or create fuller lips. Restylane skinbooster products improve the elasticity and texture of skin, maintaining and restoring the skins hydrobalance by injecting a number of tiny ‘droplets’ of hyaluronic acid gel into the dermis. For the optimal result an initial course of at least three treatments, each spaced for weeks apart is recommended.
The treatment is quick, typically taking about 15-30 minutes. Treatment with Restylane does not affect facial expression and the benefits can normally be seen instantly – see our Restylane results page.
Restylane products are biodegradable, which means they will naturally disappear in the body. To ensure an optimal and long lasting result, a top-up treatment is recommended 6-12 months after your initial Restylane treatment. Discuss with your practitioner when a follow-up appointment may be appropriate.
After a treatment some reactions might occur, these include; are slight redness, swelling, itching, bruising, pain and tenderness. The reactions are generally mild to moderate and usually disappear shortly after injection. They typically resolve spontaneously within one or two days, but for some treatments they may last longer.
How lond does Restylane treatment last?
One of the great advantages of Restylane is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Duration depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, skin condition lifestyle and age. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the area treated. It is recommended for a treatment with Restylane skinboosters that an initial course of approximately 3 treatments each spaced 4 weeks apart is given for the best aesthetic outcome, with a follow up session required 6 to 12 months afterwards. A lip enhancement treatment with the Restylane Lip Volume / Restylane Lip Refresh lasts about 6 months.
Does Restylane treatment need pain relief?
All products in the Restylane filler and skinbooster range are now also available with 0.3%local anaesthetic lidocaine included for a more comfortable treatment experience. Generally, further pain relief is not necessary when injecting into the skin to correct lines and wrinkles. Some people may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort. A local anaesthetic topical cream can be applied to the area prior to treatment for a more comfortable experience. The lips are a highly sensitive part of the body and, therefore, additional anaesthesia may be required before lip enhancement. This is achieved most effectively by using a dental block or local anaesthetic.
