What is Restylane® Made of?

If you’re starting to notice the warning signs of facial volume loss – wrinkles, hollow cheeks, and more noticeable under eye bags – it may be time to discover the youth enhancing powers of Restylane® injections.

Restylane® is an FDA-cleared dermal filler that uses a special active ingredient to not only restore facial volume, but also stimulate collagen and elastin production.

So what exactly is Restylane® made of? Let’s take a closer look.

What is Restylane® Made of?

Restylane® is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural compound that is found right in your own body. Hyaluronic acid is known for its ability to bind water; it’s also known for revitalizing sluggish collagen and elastin production. 

Here’s why that’s important: collagen and elastin are the building blocks of healthy, younger-looking skin. Both work to support thicker, “bouncier” skin, as well as accelerate cellular turnover.

As we get older, collagen and elastin production tends to slow down, resulting in the sagging, thinning skin that’s a hallmark of old age. Hyaluronic acid works to reverse the aging process by adding volume to sagging skin, as well as boosting collagen and elastin levels.
