Restylane is one of the latest non-invasive injectable facial treatments designed to slow and conceal the effects of aging. Restylane dermal fillers consist of a clear hyaluronic acid-based gel that not only fills in facial lines and wrinkles, but also adds moisture and lubrication to the skin, creating a more supple and younger appearance. At Scottsdale Skin Institute we are proud to be a top-tier med spa, delivering among the best Restylane Scottsdale has to offer.
What is Restylane Composed of?
Restylane is a clear, non-animal-based, biodegradable gel that is composed of hyaluronic acid—a substance naturally already occurring in the body. Originally developed in Sweden, Restylane is now sold and administered in the United States due to popular demand. As Restylane is created from tissue cultivated in a laboratory, it is a very safe alternative for those patients with sensitivities or allergies to animal-based fillers.
Common Areas Treated With Restylane
Virtually any area of the face showing signs of aging can be treated with Restylane. Smile lines and wrinkles around the mouth are among the most popular areas treated with Restylane injections. Enhancement of facial contours, usually accomplished with the larger particle size versions of Restylane, can also be achieved.
Hollows under the eyes, loss of volume in cheekbones, and recessive chins are often treated with this advanced hyaluronic acid solution. Another very popular application of Restylane is its use in lip augmentation and enhancement. Restylane has long lasting effects, often enhancing volume and shape for months after a treatment. Most facial areas lacking volume, shape, or smoothness can be greatly improved with the treatment of Restylane injections.

Benefits & Risks
One of the most convenient aspects of Restylane treatment is that it does not require a preliminary skin test. Because Restylane is a non-animal-based filler, there is little to no chance that patients will have an adverse or allergic reaction. This is highly beneficial for those patients who are interested in firming their face, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles and adding volume to lips, but are sensitive to the animal components that are commonly found in other cosmetic dermal fillers.
Results & Recovery
As Restylane is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the human body, it will be absorbed back into the body over time, and the results of Restylane will fade. However, Restylane treatment typically lasts longer than other cosmetic fillers, and re-treatment may not be needed for up to 12 months after initial treatment.
Some patients may experience some bruising and swelling shortly following their Restylane treatment. This bruising and swelling is temporary and will usually subside within 48 hours. The final result is a refreshed and more youthful appearance.
