Restylane® is the first cosmetic Dermal Filler made of non-animal hyaluronic acid, manufactured by Q-Med Laboratories in Sweden.
Restylane® dermal fillers are made from complex sugar chains also know as Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and are combined with a unique stabilisation process called NASHA® technology. HA is found naturally in the body where it's main role is to attract water and provide hydration to the skin.
Restylane® lasts 6 to 24 months.

A 20 minute Omnilux plus™ will follow your filler treatment to assist in healing. Make up is then applied and you can continue on with you day as there is no down time.
