Instantly create a more youthful and energetic appearance by eliminating aging lines and wrinkles. Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance almost identical to that already existing in your body. Previous fillers were derived from animal sources and could cause delayed allergic response. Restylane is not animal-derived and therefore does not contain any animal proteins that could trigger an unpleasant reaction.
In the US, the FDA has approved Restylane for wrinkles and folds. It can also be used for frown lines, smile lines, as a fill for the area above the lips to minimize vertical lip lines, marionette lines, chin augmentation, brow asymmetry, drooping mouth corners, chicken pox and acne scars. Adding a touch of Restylane to the earlobes will return balance to the ear and eliminate elongated earlobes. Restylane is also an ideal dermal injection for filling in hollows under the eyes.

You should take a few precautions before being treated with Restylane. One week prior to treatment with Restylane, avoid taking St. John’s Wort, high doses of Vitamin E supplements, aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen. These agents may increase bruising and 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.
Restylane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultrafine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort.
