Known by cosmetic professionals as stabilised hyaluronic acid, Restylane™ is a modern medical implant designed to fill out and smooth away facial lines, wrinkles and folds and add volume to lips.
Derived entirely from non-animal sources, Restylane is fully biocompatible and biodegradable. Giving volume where the body's own hyaluronic acid resources have been depleted, this solution effectively treats signs of aging and requires no pre-test, meaning treatment can be started straight away. Our Restylane Surrey treatments are carried out in our Chertsey surgery where you can relax, unwind and enjoy the impact of your lip augmentation therapies.
How long will the effect last?
The effects of Restylane begin immediately and, due to its unique properties, can last for up to a year, contrasting favourably with other fillers.
Smoothing out folds and wrinkles by adding volume can make an enormous difference to your appearance. With Restylane, facial rejuvenation can be carried out without the use of foreign elements.

What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a range of synthetic or natural substances that are used for soft tissue augmentation. In many cases this is an aesthetic choice for women and men alike who are looking to counter some skin conditions that normally occur with ageing. Dermal fillers, such as as the Restylane can be used to smooth out unwanted, lines, wrinkles and folds, as well as restore and replace volume to facial features such as the cheeks and chin, and lips.
How does it work? Restylane™ works by temporarily adding volume to facial tissue. The effect lasts for about 6 -8 months.
When is it used? Restylane™ is injected by a doctor into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur.
What will it accomplish? Restylane™ will help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. In a clinical study most patients needed one injection to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing; about one-third of patients needed more than one injection to get a satisfactory result. The smoothing effect lasted about six months.
