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 or hypersensitive reactions.
In its natural form in the body, hyaluronic acid lasts just a few days. Therefore, stabilization with NASHA technology is necessary to give long-lasting results yet with superior tissue biocompatibility. The final result of these efforts is Restylane – a safe beauty product that is well accepted by the body, with long-lasting aesthetic results.
Restylane products allow treatments to be tailored to your wishes and needs – and the results are natural and pleasing to eye. As treatment is non-surgical, there is a minimum of downtime so you can get on with living life to the full.
Dr Chew is a recognized trainer for Restylane and a typical procedure would take about 30-mins which includes about 20-mins of waiting for the topical anaesthetic to work.
There is hardly any downtime associated with this procedure and most clients can resume normal activities on the same day.
Dr Chew chooses to use the Restylane range of fillers for the following indications:
• Facial contouring
• Nose / chin Augmentation
• Cheek Volumisation (combined with Emervel Volume)
• Tear trough / dark eye circles
• Lip augmentation (combined with Emervel Lips)
• SkinBoosters (combined with Restylane Vital and Vital Light)
The results of a treatment with Restylane are long-lasting, without being permanent, giving you the freedom of choice to maintain the effect. This is achieved by using hyaluronic acid with a high degree of purity and stabilization process using the NASHA technology.
A treatment with Restylane will generally last 6 to 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.
