17 Nov Happy Anniversary, Restylane!
For 25 years now, dermal filler Restylane has been providing clients with gorgeous results. It’s one of the most requested fillers at RefinedMD, and over the years we have watched the makers of Restylane continue to innovate, lead, and take the world of dermal fillers to the next level. Restylane is renowned for its NASHA technology, which remains the gold standard for all dermal fillers. Originally created by Restylane’s Galderma, the largest independent dermatological company in the world, it’s no wonder Restylane has remained a top-tier dermal filler for over two decades.
NASHA is comprised of a hyaluronic acid (HA) that is non-animal stabilized. Restylane is known for enhancing, refreshing, and restoring the skin to a more youthful appearance. Originally launched in 1996 in Europe, Restylane was the first dermal filler to be approved by Health Canada (1999) shortly followed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2003. Today, Restylane provides more options for dermal fillers than any other maker.
Restylane has enjoyed a number of milestones and achievements over the years, such as the 2015 Optimal Balance Technology (OBT) line of gels that are soft and flexible. Clients quickly clamored for this tech that supported “dynamic expressions” and allowed for a more natural outcome. The 2017 Restylane SkinBoosters tackled signs of aging by optimizing elasticity and smoothness. Currently, Galderma has numerous projects in the works as the company continues to advance dermal filler solutions for every skin tone and type.
General manager of Galderma Canada, Wendy Adams, reports, “This brand has undoubtedly changed the lives of millions by helping them look and feel great. Galderma has the right technologies and capabilities to respond to revolving customer needs, and we will continue to build on our bright past to create a brilliant future!” Restylane fillers use two patented gels that work together, including the HA stabilizer (NASHA) and OBT. By combining these two gels, an individualized result can be achieved that is organic-looking and promises results that clients love for months. Over 50 million treatments of Restylane have been administered around the globe, which is a huge achievement for any brand.
We are happy to celebrate Restylane’s 25th anniversary, but keep in mind that there are a number of other fantastic makers of dermal fillers including Juvederm and Radiesse. At RefinedMD, we know that every dermal filler injection should be one of a kind—just like you. That’s why we offer all of the best dermal fillers available. Many clients find that the best outcome is derived from mixing and matching fillers. During your consultation, we’ll work together to determine your goals, needs, and determine the right dermal filler(s) for you.
Most dermal fillers are made with HA, including Restylane products. HA already occurs naturally in our skin, which is why HA-based fillers “take” to the skin so easily. This also means there is very little chance of the body rejecting HA fillers. No filler lasts forever, but HA fillers can last anywhere from 6 – 18 months depending on the type of filler, injection site, and amount of injections used.
Booking Your Filler Appointment
Are you ready to customize your winter aesthetic? Dermal fillers can be injected in the lips, cheeks, under the eyes, temples, along the jawline, and even the tops of the hands. Define the jawline, get rid of hollows under the eyes, youth-ify the cheeks, and turn back the clock with expertly applied dermal fillers. Bear in mind that the skill of the injector is just as important as getting matched to the right filler—which is why you only want to trust your injection to a medical facility like RefinedMD.
We can’t wait to work with you to give you the look you’ve always wanted. Whether you want to create volume where you never had it, restore the volume you’ve lost, or hide tell-tale signs of aging like “veiny” hands or dark circles, dermal fillers can make a world of difference.
