A natural beauty lift

Impressions of beauty change with time - as do our faces as we age. With RESTYLANE, you can have a natural beauty lift with the body's own material. RESTYLANE is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin.

Natural beauty. Made in Sweden

RESTYLANE is made in Sweden, a nation known for health, nature and beauty. Since 1996, more than three million people have been successfully treated in more than 70 countries worldwide.

A new look in 30 minutes

Achieving the look you desire is as easy as it is quick. The result is instantaneous. No previous skin test is needed, which means that you can have the treatment immediately. The session often takes less than thirty minutes. The time differs somewhat depending on the correction you want to have performed. During treatment, RESTYLANE is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. When injected into the skin, RESTYLANE produces volume that smoothes the wrinkle or fold, shapes the facial contour or enhances the lips in a natural way. The result is immediate. The method of injecting RESTYLANE is fast and safe and leaves no scars or other traces on the face.

Long-lasting, but not permanent

One of the great advantages of RESTYLANE is that it is long-lasting, but not permanent. Unlike permanent treatments or implants, RESTYLANE always leaves you with the option of re-evaluating your needs when the initial effect has worn off. With RESTYLANE, you will always have the option of continuing or changing the combination of treatments. A follow-up can be performed at any time you like after the previous treatment.

Non-animal

As RESTYLANE is a totally non-animal product, there is no risk of eliciting allergic reactions if you are sensitive to common foods, such as beef, chicken and eggs. Unlike some other injectable products for wrinkle treatment and lip enhancement (for example collagen made from cow hide and hyaluronic acid made from rooster combs), RESTYLANE is a totally non-animal product. This means that there is no risk of transmitting disease or eliciting allergic reactions if you are sensitive to common foods, such as beef, chicken and eggs.

Pain Reduction

For wrinkle treatments, pain relief is not required by all patients; however it can be easily arranged at your request. Prior to your procedure, a topical anaesthetic cream can be applied to the area to be treated. You can also choose to have a local anaesthetic injection.

After Treatment

Immediately after the treatment, you can expect a slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection.The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears in a few days. When it comes to lip augmentation, the swelling may last longer. Some patients experience swelling for about a week. During this time, the lips can look somewhat uneven. This means that the result directly after the treatment should not be regarded as the final result. If the discomfort continues or if other reactions occur, you should always contact your practitioner.

A touch-up treatment within 2-4 weeks after the initial treatment may be necessary to achieve an optimal correction.
