Restylane is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation product, used in the same manner as alternatives such as Juvéderm. Many people have different skin sensitivities or are allergic to collagen, and Restylane is a non-animal based, collagen free, and FDA approved alternative used to add volume to, decrease wrinkles from, or contour the face.
Restylane is used to:
Add volume to lips.
Fill in wrinkles and fine lines such as crows feet, under-eye, forehead frown lines, and mouth laugh lines.
Contour around the eyebrow, cheekbone, and nose
How it Works
Restylane is an alternative to collagen-based fillers such as Juvéderm for people with allergies. Both are hyaluronic acid fillers, which is a natural part of your skin’s composition. This attracts fluid to the area, adding volume and tightness to the targeted areas of your skin.
More about Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced by your body. High concentrations of hyaluronic acid are found in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It acts as a passage through which nutrients can go from the bloodstream to skin cells, increasing the youthful look of skin by “plumping” up the active areas. It is also used to help people with arthritis to provide extra comfort in the joints.
Restylane has shown to be just as effective as the alternative, producing results immediately.
Collagen free for those with allergies
Unlike surgery, Restylane has minimal bruising and recovery time
As hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the human body, there is no risk of allergic reaction and thus no allergy test needed before hand
As stated before, Restylane is a non-surgical anti-aging treatment, and is thus less intensive, invasive, can be reversed, and has few side effects
