Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin. It is biotechnologically produced by natural fermentation in a sterile laboratory environment.


is the trade name for a range of injectable fillers with a specific formulation of hyaluronic acid (HA) of non-animal origin. Approved by the FDA, Restylane is used to treat moderate to deep folds around the mouth, including nasolabial folds and puppet lines, lips, recesses under the eyes, acne scars, and other skin depressions.

It can also be used to create fuller lips (Restylane L, Restylane Silk and Restylane Kysse are used), and to help shape facial contours (Restylane Lyft) in areas such as the cheeks and chin, and add volume to the hands. The Restylane family of products, manufactured by Galderma, has become one of the favorite hyaluronic acid dermal fillers since its original restylane injection was approved by the FDA in 2003.It is completely safe when performed under the guidance of a qualified and trained board certified dermatologist. Restylane SkinBoosters are microinjections that stimulate skin fibroblasts, increase skin cell renewal and provide a youthful and revitalized skin appearance. Restylane Lyft adds volume to the backs of your hands, which can result in a more youthful appearance that can help complete your aesthetic look.

The cost of Restylane for under-eye injections varies, as it is an advanced injection technique and should not be relegated to inexperienced spas or injectors. Restylane Kysse is used only for the lips and is combined with Lidocaine to make the injection more comfortable for the patient. In clinical studies conducted by Galderma, 98% of patients who were injected with Restylane Contour were satisfied with their annual results.Restylane is an injectable, non-surgical facial dermal filler that has been designed not only to “fill in the lines and wrinkles of the face” but also to add moisture to the skin. It is FDA approved and made up of several different products that use the unique NASHA technology, which gives each product its own unique particle size.
