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 found naturally in the body. The gel is injected in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The results are instant and will give you a long lasting and natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin.

Restylane has a long record of success with many satisfied users. It is made in Sweden, a nation known for health, nature and beauty, and since 1996, more than a million people have been successfully treated with Restylane in more than 60 countries worldwide. It is a safe product and was the first CE-approved, non-animal, stabilized, inject able hyaluronic acid for aesthetic use.

Restylane products and their uses
Restylane is available in five tissue tailored variants each separately designed for a different particular purpose and effect such as smoothing our tiny lines, shaping facial contours and sculpting lips to perfection. The difference between the products is the gel particle size.

Restylane is designed for moderate wrinkle correction and lip enhancement

Restylane Perlane is designed for deep folds facial contours and lip enhancement.

Restylane Vital is designed for adding moisture/volume/plumpness to large areas such as chest or hands

Restylane Lip Volume  specifically for the lip area – to add natural volume to thin or ageing lips.

Restylane Lip Refresh  is NOT for adding volume to the lips, simply to make them look more refreshed and youthful.

When can treatment commence?
Providing you are a suitable candidate for this treatment, and after having a consultation, treatment can commence immediately.

What areas can be treated?
Restylane is available in several tissue tailored variants, each designed for a different particular purpose and effect, such as smoothing out tiny lines, shaping facial contours and sculpting lips to perfection. You will be advised on a tailored programme that will suit your individual needs.

However some of the areas that have been treated successfully with Restylane products are, Worry lines, Nasolabial folds, Oral commissures,, Glabellar lines, Periorbital lines, Perioral lines, and Smile lines

When there has been loss of weight in the face, Perlane can be used with the Pix L Cannula to add volume to the face at the correct points. This can also be used for optimisation of the cheekbone area."

Areas on the face that can be treated with Restylane

Do the injections hurt?
During treatment Restylane is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. When injected into the skin it 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.

However you may find that the injections are uncomfortable particularly around the nose and lips. You will be provided with anaesthetic creams prior to commencement of your treatment which has a numbing affect on the areas to be treated.

How will my skin look and feel immediately after treatment?
Immediately after the treatment you can expect slight redness, 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 augmentation the swelling may last longer. If the discomfort continues or if other reactions occur you should always contact Nurse Graham. A touch up treatment within 2-4 weeks after the initial treatment may be necessary to achieve optimal correction.

Does the correction last forever?
Restylane is long lasting but it is not permanent, you always have the option of continuing or changing the combination of treatment. The length of time Restylane stays in the skin is very individual. Most patients choose to have a follow-up treatment six to twelve months after the initial treatment.

How often will I need a top up injection?
After injection Restylane generally remains for 6-12 months when injected into the skin. Due to a very effective stabilization method the volume remains intact for a long period of time. The length of time a treatment maintains its effect is very individual and depends on many factors, such as your age skin type, life-style and muscle activity as well as the injection techniques.

Together with your practitioner, you can draw up a plan for regular future visits to maintain the results. However depending on the effects you wish to achieve the initial treatment is best maintained with occasional follow-up treatments.

Without top up injections how will my skin look?
A Restylane wrinkle treatment is long-lasting but not permanent. This means that you always have the option to assess your looks, and the option of continuing or changing the combination of treatments

When Restylane breaks down, water takes its place. When totally absorbed, Restylane turns into water and carbon dioxide and disappears without leaving any trace in your body. The original correction will subside gradually and your skin will look like it did before the treatment

What are the side effects?
After the treatment some common injection-related reactions may occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site. These typically resolve spontaneously within a few days after the injection into the skin and within a week after the injection into the lips.

Other types of reactions are very rare, but about 1 in 2000 treated patients have experienced localized reactions thought to be of a hypersensitive nature. These have usually consisted of swelling at the injection site, sometimes affecting the surrounding tissues.
