Restylane® Dermal Filler


What is Restylane®?

Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane® is the filler of choice at North Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery for full beautiful lips. It is composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is a crystal-clear gel called NASHA. NASHA is biodegradable and completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid.

Unlike rooster-derived hyaluronic acids and bovine collagen products, Restylane® is free from animal proteins. This limits any risk of animal-based disease transmissions or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins.*

Restylane® requires no pretesting, but you should take a few precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, St. John's Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment, because these may increase bruising or 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.

Is Restylane® Safe?

Yes. Restylane® is safe and has been used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons since 1996 worldwide. Restylane® has a highly favorable safety profile. It's composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the human body. Restylane® is fully biocompatible. There is limited risk of animal-based disease transmission or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins. No allergy testing is required before use. The most commonly reported side effects were temporary redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve in less than seven days.

Restylane® has been used in more than 3 million treatments in over 70 countries to correct a variety of wrinkles. It is currently indicated in the U.S. for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.

Studies have shown that Restylane® effects generally last for about six months. The unique NASHA technology helps maintain the cosmetic effect until the injected material is nearly gone.

At North Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Gilmore is conscientious about recommendations for follow-up treatments. He recommends a solid medical grade skincare program coupled with a healthful lifestyle to complement your Restylane® investment in yourself.
