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. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long lasting, natural enhancement. The procedure is gentle and safe to your skin.
Restylane®is made in Sweden, a nation known for health, nature and beauty. Since 1996, more than a million people have been treated in more than 60 countries worldwide.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® products smooth away wrinkles, enhance facial contours, create fuller lips, and revitalise skin.
Treatments are tailored to your needs and the results can be seen instantly. Restylane is a natural beauty product that does not affect facial expression or movement. Over 10 million treatments with Restylane have been performed worldwide.
Restylane is a crystal clear gel that is injected into the skin (or for some treatments just under ) in small amounts to restore volume and structure. It is based on hyaluronic acid, similar to the body’s own hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is non-animal which means that no skin tests are needed and that there is a minimal risk of allergic reactions.
Benefits of Restylane® treatment
The results of a treatment with Restylane® are long-lasting, without being permanent, giving you the freedom of choice to maintain the effect. A treatment with Restylane® will generally last 6-12 months, and with only one re-treatment the effect has in a recent clinical study been shown to last up to 18 months. To maintain the results in the lips, a re-treatment is usually needed within 6 months.
The safety and effectiveness of Restylane® treatments have also been proven in numerous clinical studies.
Consultation and Restylane® treatment
Come to your consultation prepared with some questions about your treatment expectations. You will be asked about your medical history.When you leave your consultation you should feel well informed about Restylane, how it works, and what results to expect.
Together with Elite@Arches Dental you will decide which Restylane® product is suitable for your needs. Before treatment, Elite Dental will discuss pain relief with you. As every person has different preferences and sensitivity, Restylane® is available both with and without integrated pain-relief. Depending on which area you will have treated you will also have a choice of other anaesthesia, such as anaesthetic cream, dental block or ice.
A treatment with Restylane® typically takes about 15-30 minutes. It is performed by injecting Restylane® through a fine needle into your skin to fill wrinkles, add volume, shape your face or lips or revitalise your skin.
Elite Dental will provide you with post treatment advice. It is normal to experience some post-treatment discomfort, such as redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the treatment site. This typically subsides after a few days but can last up to one to two weeks. It is advisable to return for a top-up treatment to achieve optimal and lasting results.
Your Next Restylane® Treatment
As Restylane® is naturally biodegraded, you will eventually need to repeat the treatment to maintain the result. Return visits are typically made after 6-12 months for wrinkles and within 6 months for lips. For skin revitalisation with Restylane Vital a typical treatment programme comprises of three treatment sessions spaced 2-4 weeks apart with a top-up maintenance treatment every 4-6 months, depending on the condition of your skin.
