What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is found in the intercellular matrix of the skin of all mammals. Its main function is to retain water, thereby maintaining space between the cells for their metabolism and protecting the skin against the harmful effects of free radicals.
Uses of hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is used as an injectable filler in aesthetic dermatology to eliminate wrinkles, strengthen skin and increase its flexibility. It supports the formation of new collagen fibres.
Mild redness or tenderness may appear around injection sites. In exceptional cases clients who suffer from from cold sores may experience mild herpes symptoms. When a high-quality preparation and experienced specialist are selected side effects rarely occur.

What is Restylane®?
RESTYLANE® is hyaluric acid, which is natural to the body. This substance occurs throughout the body and ensures the hydration and elasticity of the skin. Over time, however, the production of hyaluric acid decreases, wrinkles form and the skin becomes less flexible. RESTYLANE® replaces natural hyaluric acid. It forms cushions under the skin that completely fill the wrinkles and furrows. Three kinds of RESTYLANE® (RESTYLANE®, Restylane Touch® or Restylane Perlane®) are used, depending on the depth of the wrinkles. The products are virtually identical: they differ only in the size of the acid beads. Smaller ones are used for minor wrinkles, and larger ones for deeper furrows and for renewing volume.
The doctor applies RESTYLANE® to the skin using a thin needle. The slight burning sensation this causes disappears immediately after the substance has been applied. The skin is desensitized with cream at sensitive places, like the lips.
The result of the treatment– smooth skin and fuller lips – can be seen immediately. Although the skin may be slightly swollen directly after the treatment, the swelling disappears within one or two days. The body completely decomposes RESTYLANE® within six to twelve months, at which point the effect of the treatment disappears. However, the treatment can be repeated without difficulty.For more information see http://www.estheticon.com/procedures/injectable-fillers-collagen-fibrogen
