Restylane is a cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. Restylane was approved by the FDA in 2003 for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds including nasolabial folds, the lines between the nose and mouth. Upon being injected beneath the skin's surface, the gel adds natural volume and lift to smooth wrinkles and folds.
Dermal fillers integrate into dermal tissue, then attract and bind to water molecules to help maintain volume. Restylane is gradually degraded by the body's own mechanisms and disappears without any residue. Results can be seen immediately following treatment and last six months, or longer.
Unlike bovine (cow) collagen, no skin testing is necessary prior to injection. Although results may vary, Restylane usually works for 3-6 months. Treatment sessions usually take 5-15 minutes. Numbing cream and sometimes local anesthesia are utilized to minimize treatment discomfort.
Conveniently located in the heart of Pierce County, the Aesthetic Surgery Centre and Esthetique Medical Spa facility is in Tacoma, WA, just minutes south of Seattle and Bellevue and north of Olympia.
