What is it?
- Restylane is a natural, cosmetic dermal filler that combats aging and restores volume and fullness to the skin to smooth out facial wrinkles and enhance lips. It is made of natural hyaluronic acid which already exists in the human body, thus there is no allergy testing required. This chemical gradually diminishes as we age, resulting in a fatigued and older appearance look. Restylane is injected in small amounts underneath the skin with a small needle to fill in creases, lines, wrinkles and folds.
