What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is an injectable gel that contains hyaluronic acid, a biodegradable and naturally occurring substance in the human body. This ingredient improves the appearance of the facial skin by minimizing wrinkles and restoring moisture to the skin. Since hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the human body, the chances of allergic reaction are extremely slight, ensuring that most people are suitable candidates for Restylane® injections.
Types of Restylane® Fillers
There are several types of Restylane® fillers, each of which treats a specific flaw in the facial skin. Restylane® options include:
Restylane® Touch contains small particles, which are injected just under the skin’s surface. This product is intended to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and is often used to smooth the skin around the mouth and eyes.
Restylane® Perlane contains large particles, which are injected into deeper lines, folds, and wrinkles and can also be used to add fullness to the lips. The doctor then massages the skin to assure even distribution of the filler.
Restylane® SubQ is used to enhance the facial features. The Restylane® SubQ gel is injected deep into the skin to improve the contours of the chin, cheeks, and other features. Restylane® SubQ also reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
