The resilience and youthful contours of your skin, i.e., its ability to counter the effects of time, wind and weather, owes much to hyaluronic acid. It exists in all living things and its most important function is to bear and bind water.
In Restylane, stabilized, hyaluronic acid, in the form of a crystal-clear gel, smoothes wrinkles and folds or gives contour. It acts as a natural beauty lift.
Restylane has a long record of success with many satisfied users. More than 1,500,000 treatments have been carried out in more than 60 countries around the world. The products are made under stringent control. Each Restylane product is based on the same Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is one of very few substances that are identical in all species and tissue types and therefore it can be used in many medical applications. In Restylane it restores youthful resilience to your skin by simply adding to your natural supply.
Restylane comprises NASHA, or Non-Animal, Stabilized, Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is the first stable, bio-degradable, non-animal Hyaluronic acid available and is produced under carefully controlled conditions. The result is choices of gels which can be used individually or in combination.After injection, the gel binds water and generally remains for many months. Non-stabilized Hyaluronic acid products, by comparison, last only a few days or several weeks at most. As a totally non-animal product, there is no risk of transmitting disease or eliciting allergic reaction in patients who are sensitive to common foods, such as beef, chicken and eggs.Each of the choices in the Restylane product range are specially designed for different purposes and effects, from eliminating tiny lines to enhancing facial contours and sculpting lips to perfection. At Laserase Croydon we utilise the following:
RESTYLANE TOUCH is utilised for correcting thin, superficial lines, for example around the eyes and mouth, forehead lines and smile lines.
RESTYLANE is utilised for wrinkle correction and lip enhancements.
RESTYLANE PERLANE is utilised for correcting deep folds, and volume augmentation of the lips.
RESTYLANE SUB-Q is utilised for shaping facial contours, such as cheeks and chin.
RESTYLANE VITAL is utilised for hydrating and revitalising skin, especially in the face, the backs of hands and the décolletage.
The difference between the products is the gel particle size. For optimal results combinations of our products are often used. Your practitioner chooses the product that matches the tissue structure at various levels of skin depth.One of the great advantages of the Restylane products is that they are long-lasting but not permanent.
How long a treatment holds its effect is very individual. This depends on many factors, such as your age, skin type, life style and muscle activity as well as on the injection technique. The gel particles in Restylane are absorbed so slowly that you have ample time for maintenance treatments. As the gel breaks down, water takes its place. The less concentrated the gel becomes, the more water it is able to bind. These facts are the main reasons that treatments with Restylane products last so long.
When totally absorbed the gel disappears unnoticed from the body. Most patients choose to have a follow-up treatment six to twelve months after an initial treatment of wrinkles or facial contouring. After lip treatments, a follow-up is normally needed after about three to six months. You always have the choice to continue or change the combination of treatments, and the procedure can be repeated as often as you like. You are always in charge of your looks. Restylane gives you that all-important flexibility.Restylane is an effective and long-lasting alternative. Gaining the look you desire is as easy as it is quick. And the results are instantaneous. No pre-testing is needed and a session often takes less than 30 minutes.Depending on the effects desired, an initial treatment is usually maintained with occasional follow-up treatments.No pain relief is generally necessary, however it can be easily arranged at your request. During treatment the crystal-clear gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very thin needle. The gel then gives natural volume and smoothes the wrinkles.The ability of Restylane products to integrate with adjacent tissues allows the free passage of vital nutritive elements like oxygen and hormones to pass between fragments of the gel. The result is healthy, natural looking skin.
After the treatment some common injection-related reactions may occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the implant site. These typically resolve spontaneously within one to two days after injection into the skin and within a week after injection into the lips.
Other types of reactions are very rare, but about 1 in 2000 treated patients have experienced localized reactions thought to be allergic in nature. These have usually consisted of swelling at the implant site, sometimes affecting the surrounding tissues. Redness, tenderness and rarely acne-like formations have also been reported. These reactions have either started a few days after injection or after a delay of two to four weeks, and have generally been described as mild to moderate and self-limiting with an average duration of two weeks.
Even more rarely, reportedly about 1 in 15000 treated patients have experienced ulceration of a small area of skin due to the occlusion of a small blood vessel. This may take several months to resolve. Therefore, it is important for the doctor or nurse administering the treatment to have sufficient experience to recognise such an occurrence and initiate immediate treatment to minimise the likelihood of a longer term problem.
