FAQs

general-information

  • What are the benefits of Restylane?

    • A quick and simple Restylane treatment can instantly give you a natural enhancement on your face that may last up to one year without affecting your facial expressions.
    • Restylane fillers enhance facial volume, create contours, and soothe wrinkles; whereas Restylane Skinboosters offer a subtle, gradual change in skin quality and elasticity by increasing skin hydration levels.
  • Why should I choose Restylane?

    • It is safe. Restylane is well tested in clinical studies on its natural hyaluronic acid with superior tissue biocompatibility. It is made in Sweden and closely resembles the body’s own hyaluronic acid, which reduces the risks of allergic reactions.
    • It works. Restylane offers long-lasting results which have been clinically proven with extensive documentation.
    • It is globally used. Restylane is the world’s most popular treatment of its kind that has been successfully used in over 20 million treatments across the globe.
  • Which areas does Restylane treat?

    Restylane specialized in smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles, creating fuller lips, shaping facial contours and rejuvenating the skin. The most common treatments include:
    • Soothing nose to mouth lines (the nasolabial folds)
    • Filling out glabella lines between eyebrows
    • Enhancing lips volume and shape
    • Shaping and contouring cheeks and chin
    • Rejuvenating skin on hands, decolletage, face, neck

before-treatment

  • What should I bear in mind when considering a Restylane treatment?

    • You should contact a qualified practitioner for pre-treatment consultation. Be prepared to discuss your medical history, wishes and expectations, and receive recommendations of the most suitable Restylane treatments for you.
  • Can I receive a Restylane treatment if I have had laser or
    chemical peel treatments?

    • You are recommended to postpone Restylane treatment until your treated area recovers and resumes its normal condition. Please consult your practitioner for details.
  • Do I need to take a pre-treatment skin test?

    • No skin test is required as Restylane does not contain any animal-derived ingredients and can be easily accepted by human body with high biocompatibility.

during-treatment

  • How long does a Restylane treatment take?

    • A typical Restylane treatment takes about 30 minutes. By applying a small amount of Restylane gel, your skin texture, elasticity, and hydrobalance will be instantly improved without affecting your facial expressions.
  • How long does a Restylane treatment last?

    • Restylane is long-lasting but not permanent. Different treatment lasts differently. The duration also depends on individual’s skin type, lifestyle, age and other factors. After the initial treatment, you may expect follow-up sessions every 6 to 12 months as suggested by your practitioner. A recent study shows that Restylane can last up to 36 months with just two re-treatments*

  • Do I need pain relief for a Restylane treatment?

    • Generally, pain relief is not necessary when treating wrinkles. However, some people may experience a mild discomfort during treatment and apply local anesthetic cream to avoid pain.
    • As the lips area is highly sensitive, anesthesia (with dental block or local anesthetic being the most effective) is usually recommended for lip enhancement. Local anesthesia lidocaine is now available for a more comfortable Restylane treatment experience.
  • Who is qualified to give Restylane treatments?

    • Medically qualified health professionals, including plastic surgeons, dermatologists and cosmetic physicians are all qualified to administer Restylane treatments.

after-treatment

  • What reactions will I experience after receiving Restylane treatments?

    • Restylane is very safe and seldom produces severe side-effects. The most common post-treatments reaction is slight skin redness, swelling, itching, bruising or slight pain and tenderness. These reactions are generally mild to moderate and usually disappear within 1 or 2 days after each injection, while for some treatments they may last longer.
  • Are there any risks with Restylane?

    • As Restylane provides non-surgical procedures, your facial expressions will not be affected after treatment. It is well tested in clinical studies on its natural hyaluronic acid with superior tissue biocompatibility. It is made in Sweden and 99% resembles the body’s own hyaluronic acid, which largely reduces the risks of allergic reactions.Since its launch in 1996, Restylane has performed over 20 million treatments worldwide with very rare reported reactions.
