Immediate and long-lasting wrinkle correction

Q What is Restylane®?
A Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that
restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to
severe facial
wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.

Q What is Restylane made of?
A Restylane is the first cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-
based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that
already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume
and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is a
crystal-clear gel called NASHA,™ or Non-Animal Stabilized
Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is biodegradable and fully biocompatible
with human hyaluronic acid.

Q How is Restylane different than other hyaluronic acid-based
A Unlike rooster-derived hyaluronic acidbased products, Restylane
is free from animal proteins. This quality limits any risk of animal-
based disease transmission or allergic reaction. Restylane contains
trace amounts of     gram-positive bacterial proteins and should not
be used by patients with a history of allergies to such material.

Q How often should I have Restylane® treatments done?
A Treatments are typically scheduled twice a year. Having a touch-
up treatment before the product has fully dissipated may enhance
the lasting effect.

Q What should patients do prior to treatment?
A Restylane requires no pretesting, but you should take a few
precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of
Vitamin E supplements
prior to treatment, because these may increase bruising or
bleeding at the injection site. Also, if you have previously suffered
from facial cold sores, discuss this with your physician. He/She may
consider prescribing a medication to minimize recurrence.

Q How is Restylane different from Botox® Cosmetic?
A Restylane is a natural, cosmetic filler. In contrast, Botox Cosmetic
is a drug that blocks nerve transmission and relaxes the underlying
muscles. Many patients have been very pleased after receiving
treatment with both products.

Q How is Restylane different from bovine collagen?
A Bovine collagen is derived from animals (cows) and requires an
allergy test. Restylane can be administered immediately—no
waiting is required.
