Restylane Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

HYALURONIC ACID AND AGEING

Restylane products are based on a sugar molecule called hyaluronic acid, or HA, which is naturally found in our bodies and offers support and structure to our tissues.

HA keeps our skin hydrated and firm, through its unique ability to bind water molecules; it also provides support and structure to the skin and protects it from damage. However, as we age the natural production of HA by our bodies slows down. This means that our skin can become thinner, dehydrated and less firm, losing its radiance and youthful appearance2.

At the same time, the natural ageing process drives changes to the underlying bone structure of the face, which can lead to a lack of definition in facial contours, such as our cheeks3.

HOW RESTYLANE CAME TO BE

In the late 1980s, Swedish scientist and entrepreneur Bengt Ågerup had a vision to bring his scientific work on HA out of the lab and into the real world. Ågerup and his fellow scientists wanted to find a way to restore skin moisture and structure by creating a product that could deliver naturally occurring HA into the skin. It had to be safe – closely resembling natural HA so that it would not be detected by the body as a foreign substance and cause an immune reaction – and offer long-lasting results4.

The product was Restylane, the world’s first stabilised non-animal HA filler.

And the innovation didn’t stop there. Since the first product was launched in 1996, we have been working hard to create a range of products with carefully calculated properties to suit patients’ individual needs. This has included creating products with diverse textures to offer different levels of lift or volume, and products specifically formulated to deliver skin hydration.
