  1. What is Restylane Dermal Filler, and How Does it Work?

Restylane dermal filler is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable designed to add volume and fullness to the skin. It works by attracting and retaining moisture, which plumps the skin, smooths wrinkles, and enhances facial contours.

  1. Why is Restylane Considered a Natural Dermal Filler?

The hyaluronic acid produced by the body plays a crucial role in retaining moisture within the skin and tissues, giving the skin its youthful plumpness and suppleness. But as we age, the body’s production of HA declines – contributing to lax and sagging skin that results in lines, wrinkles, and hollow contours.

Restylane use a form of hyaluronic acid that that is almost identical to what the body produces – making it Restylane is not only a natural antiaging treatment, but also one that is exceptionally well-tolerated by the majority of patients.

  1. Is Restylane Dermal Filler Safe?

Restylane dermal filler is FDA-approved and considered exceptionally safe when administered by a trained and experienced medical professional. Clinical studies have shown that, because of their “bioidentical” formulation and ingredients, hyaluronic acids almost never lead to infection, allergic reaction, or other adverse complication when administered by a skilled medical professional.
