One of the most common questions we are asked in our office is regarding the safety of the latest treatment methodologies. We certainly encourage all patients to seek advice about the safety and performance of their cosmetic options before they make their decision to undergo treatment, so it’s important outline the reasons why Restylane is among the safest dermal fillers available for those seeking a means of minimizing fine lines and other elements on their skin.
In this post, we’re looking at the common question: is Restylane safe for the skin?
Made from Natural Products
A leading benefit that Restylane has over other dermal fillers offered within the cosmetic care field is that it’s manufactured from non-animal based hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body, and is designed to provide our skin with volume and fullness. The hyaluronic acid utilized within the Restylane product is formed from the crystal-clegel substance NASHA (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid), which is biodegradable and biocompatible with the hyaluronic acid already in our bodies.
Tested Since 1996
Restylane is one of the most widely tested and proven effective dermal fillers on the market today. Researchers have conducted safety testing on the treatment system since its development in 1996, and all testing work has shown the safety that restylane provides as a form of cosmetic treatment. The studies show there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction from the restylane treatment, as the product contains elements that are fully biocompatible with our systems.
A History of Effective Results
Restylane has been utilized within over one million treatments around the world since its introduction to the marketplace. In over 60 countries worldwide, the product has been used to correct the appearance of wrinkles over a long period of time and to improve the fullness of lips. In this time, the only commonly reported side-effect resulting from restylane use has been temporary swelling and redness at the injection site, as is the case with any injectable, and these effects usually resolve themselves within two days. It’s the type of safety results expected from one of the industry’s most popular skin treatments.
While patients should be careful in considering their skin treatment options, it’s important to understand the benefits and the safe performance of the market’s most proven products.
