Non-animal cross-linked hyaluronic acid. The main component of Restylane® (before: Emervel®) is hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance found in all living organisms. The hyaluronic acid is mixed with a cross-linker called Butanediol Diglycidyl Ether (BDDE) to form a gel, which is then purified through dialysis to remove trace amounts of BDDE left over from the process.
The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is produced by a biotechnological process from bacterial fermentation without using any animal products.
Restylane® benefits from what the manufacturers call its Optimal Balance Technology™.
Restylane® has 4 levels of cross-linking, resulting in 4 levels of gel firmness across the range. Particle size or calibration is achieved during the manufacturing process after cross-linking, by sieving the gels through different sizes of mesh.
Hyaluronic acid is completely broken down within the skin over a period of months, eventually leaving no trace of the filler.
Restylane® Kysse (Emervel® Lips) is specifically formulated to enhance, define or augment the lip body and border. A treatment with Emervel Lips can be used regardless of whether a subtle lip enhancement or a noticeable lip augmentation is desired. Emervel Lips has been specially developed for the treatment of sensitive lips. The hyaluronic acid-based gel softly integrates into the sensitive lip tissue and has been proven to cause little swelling.
The naturally occurring deposits of hyaluronic acid in the skin decrease with age. Lips lose their tone and fullness and fine lines may develop around the mouth. Small quantities of Restylane® Kysse compensate for the hyaluronic acid loss. Lips appear revitalised and plumper as wrinkles are gently filled out.
The Optimal Balance Technology™, employed in the manufacture of Restylane®, provides a product which lasts for 6 - 9 months. In clinical trials, some effects have also been seen at 12 months.
