25 Years of Excellence: Celebrating the Launch of Restylane

For 25 years, Restylane has been the go-to product for healthcare professionals and patients alike. With more than 50 million treatments administered and counting, this milestone marks a continuation of Restylane's excellence and trust. Galderma continues to innovate and create dynamic products with natural-looking results, to ensure that aesthetic providers and their customers have confidence in the brand.The Restylane portfolio is the most diverse and broadest portfolio of dermal fillers in the U. S., with six products designed to smooth facial wrinkles and folds, increase and correct mild to moderate chin retrusion, create fuller and more accented lips, add lift and volume to the cheeks and back of the hands, and increase the cheeks and correct deficiencies of the mid-facial contour.

The safety of use during pregnancy or lactation has not been studied. Tell your doctor if you have a history of scarring or pigmentation disorders, as these side effects can occur with hyaluronic acid fillers. Tell your doctor if you plan other cosmetic treatments (i.e. laser treatments) or if you are taking medications that decrease the body's immune response or affect bleeding, such as aspirin or warfarin, as these medications may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site.

The use of these products in gel injection sites with skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts or infections should be postponed until healing is complete.The most common side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lumping, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function. Serious but rare side effects include late-onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site. The risk of an involuntary injection into a blood vessel is small but it can occur and lead to serious complications which can be permanent such as vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs or permanent scarring of the skin.As with all skin injection procedures there is a risk of infection. Restylane is the trade name for a range of injectable fillers with a specific formulation of hyaluronic acid (HA) of non-animal origin.

In the United States Restylane was the first hyaluronic acid filler approved by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic injection into subdermal facial tissues.Restylane is most commonly used to enhance the lips (volume and contour). It is used to decrease wrinkles and aging lines on the face such as nasolabial folds (lines from nose to mouth) and melomental folds (sad corners of the mouth).

It can also be used to fill facial gaps and orbital canals related to aging (under and around the eyes), as well as for volume in cheeks and contour in chin lips and nose.A treatment with a dermal filler such as Restylane may cause some temporary bruising as well as swelling and numbness for a few days. In rare cases lumps or granulomas have been reported. These side effects can be easily reversed with a treatment of hyaluronidase which is an enzyme that accelerates the natural degradation of the injected hyaluronic acid filler.Several studies have been conducted to understand the long-term side effects of Restylane and other hyaluronic acid fillers. In certain cases the filler causes a granulomatous reaction to a foreign body.

Although side effects are rare Restylane should not be used in areas where there are or have been skin diseases inflammation or related conditions. Restylane has not been tested in pregnant or breast-feeding women.Most injectors inject the filler with a small needle under the skin. Anesthetic creams or injections reduce pain.Backed by more than 150 clinical studies in more than 3000 subjects Restylane has been shown to have a high longevity and treatment efficacy.
