Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds.
Restylane has a highly favorable safety profile. It is composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally in the human body. Restylane is fully biocompatible. No allergy testing is required before use.
Restylane maintains its shape using the body’s own moisture. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide long-lasting results.
Restylane is free from animal proteins. This limits any risk of animal-based disease transmissions or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins.
We remain innovative injectors of the hyaluronic acids and not only published the first papers in the U.S. literature to instruct other physicians about these fillers, but we were also the practice that first identified the appropriate use of the enzyme hyaluronidase which can be used to immediately dissolve these fillers, if needed.
Using Restylane, we specialize in under eye injections for dark hollows and overall face sculpting.
With age, trauma, and disease, our faces lose structural support and volume, leaving us with hollows and sagging bulges. Whereas the botulinum toxins help relax dyanmic lines and wrinkles that first appear with facial movement, the dermal fillers fill in hollow areas and can camouflage some bulges.
Our practice began using the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers (HADFs) in 2003 when they available only in Europe and Canada. Since then, we have performed over 10,000 treatments, making us among the most experienced physician-injectors in this part of the country. In fact, it was our practice’s discovery and publication of the enzyme that rapidly and safely dissolves these materials that helped catapult them to the very top of the list of cosmetic procedures performed every year, right behind the botulinum toxins.
The HADFs are safer than collagens and require no sensitivity testing.
The HADFs remain the only instantly reversible dermal fillers available.
Currently, a wide range of HADFs are available and in our practice we take full advantage of the different properties of all of these fillers to create a complex facial sculpting, combining soft pads with more rigid support, as needed. Our goal is to maintain and enhance each person’s natural appearance, while blunting the ravages of time. Every HADF treatment is customized not only for each person, but with each treatment to adapt to the changing needs of every face.
