WHAT IS RESTYLANE® USED TO TREAT?
Restylane® is a safe and natural dermal filler that re-volumizes facial skin to correct wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It is also very effective in off-label uses, such as treating hollowing under the eyes, known as the tear troughs.
HOW DOES RESTYLANE® WORK?
Restylane® is composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid and is fully biocompatible, as hyaluronic acid is a material found naturally in the human body. Restylane® maintains its shape using water from the body. As it degrades naturally, each molecule binds to water and helps plump the skin. When injected into the dermis by an experienced provider, Restylane® naturally corrects facial wrinkles, folds, and volume loss. This ability to bind water helps provide long-lasting results. Results last for 6 months on average. However, individual results vary.
What is Restylane Kysse?
Restylane Kysse is an injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar, found in the human body. Restylane Kysse is crosslinked with BDDE, an ingredient that helps form a network of HA to provide a gel filler that lasts longer. HA fillers, including Restylane Kysse, contains HA that has been modified to last longer in the body than the naturally occurring HA. Restylane Kysse contains 0.3 % lidocaine to reduce pain during injection.
