What is Restylane made of?
Doctor Answers 4
Restylane is NASHA
After production, the hyaluronic acid is purified, concentrated, and cross-linked. There is obviously no bacteria in the final formulation.
Hyaluronic acid is a mafor protein of the skin of all mammals. When you inject it into the skin, you are adding more of what is already there.
I hope this clarifies things for you!

Restylane is made of Hyaluronic Acid
Restylane is an FDA approved dermal filler that is made from non- animal hyaluronic acid. It is a safe and easy injection that can plump various areas in the face. What is important in choosing the correct filler is proper injection technique and matching the patient's anatomical area with the correct type of filler for the best cosmetic result.
All the best and good luck!

Restylane is a gel of hyaluronic acid generated by Streptococcus species of bacteria. It is produced biotechnologically by natural fermentation in a sterile laboratory environment. This significantly diminishes the risk of transmitting diseases between species or of eliciting allergic reactions in patients who are sensitive to common foods, such as beef, chicken and eggs. Restylane does not require any allergy or skin test prior to injection.
