Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. It is composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronan acid, a substance that is found naturally in the human body and is fully biocompatible. In fact, Restylane® maintains its shape using the patient’s body’s own moisture. As hyaluronan acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronan acid.
Restylane® has a highly favorable safety profile. It is 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.
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.
