Our skin is remarkable, protecting our bodies from the outside world and repairing itself every day. However, with age, lifestyle and environmental factors, like sun damage, smoking and poor diet, the condition of our skin deteriorates .
The Restylane portfolio is designed to refresh, restore and enhance the youthful appearance of your skin, offering definition, firmness and deep hydration. The broad range of Restylane products used by aesthetic healthcare professionals helps to provide a treatment programme tailored to your individual needs. This is complemented by the Restylane skincare range, which helps to refresh your skin from the outside.
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 appearance .
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 cheeks.
