Why Volumize?
Galderma and Restylane, Fill, Defyne and Volumize treatments

Why volumize with RESTYLANE®?  

The natural volume in the cheeks and lips creates the softness and roundness that is associated with a young and healthy appearance. As we grow older, we may lose some of the volume, leading to flatter cheeks and sagging skin. You may also have genetic reasons, or your own personal desires, for wanting to add volume or soften your facial features, such as thin lips or undefined lips. 

Restylane® VOLYME™ and Restylane® KYSSE™ are soft and flexible, so that your face not only looks beautiful at rest but also when you smile and talk.1  Still, they are firm enough to give the right tissue support and buoyancy so that they retain volume and shape over time. 

Treatments with Restylane® VOLYME™ last up to at least 18 months.2 Treatments with Restylane® KYSSE™ last up to at least 1 year.3

Your RESTYLANE® treatment

A treatment with RESTYLANE® takes approximately 15-45 minutes, depending on the area that will be treated. Sometimes you might need a touch-up treatment about two weeks after the initial treatment to optimize your results. Most RESTYLANE® fillers contain a local anesthetic, lidocaine, that takes away most of the discomfort during treatment. 

Immediately after your dermal filler treatment, you may experience some post-treatment side effects, such as redness, swelling, pain, bruising or tenderness at the treatment site. These side effects usually disappear within one week after injection. Though fillers are minimally invasive, they still carry some risks. Before the treatment, you should discuss all possible risks and benefits with your healthcare practitioner.

RESTYLANE® gives you long-lasting but non-permanent results, meaning that you can continuously refine your looks. 

How it works
How it works

How it works

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that has a unique ability to bind water. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our bodies and in all layers of our skin. It keeps your body tissues soft, hydrated and flexible. However, as we age, the body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid lessens, leading to dry and thinner skin.  

Natural hyaluronic acid in the body degrades quickly, in one to two days. To make the hyaluronic acid in Restylane® VOLYME™ and Restylane® KYSSE™ last longer—for up to at least a year for Restylane® KYSSE™4 and up to at least 18 months for Restylane® VOLYME™5 Galderma has used stabilization technologies that delay degradation. Restylane® VOLYME™ and Restylane® KYSSE™ contain hyaluronic acid gels with a consistency that is soft but yet firm enough to retain volume and shape in for example the cheeks and lips. 

RESTYLANE® was the first ever non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid filler, when it was launched in 1996. It has become the gold standard of dermal fillers and is the injectable filler that every other filler brand is compared with.

You will always have a consultation before your first treatment. Think through what you want to achieve and the questions you may have. Your healthcare practitioner will inform you how Restylane fillers can be used in a safe way to suit your own individual aspirations. You will also be asked about your medical history. When you leave your consultation, you should feel well informed about Restylane fillers and you should know what results to expect.

First of all, you should always contact a qualified healthcare practitioner to be assured that your dermal filler treatment will be performed correctly. You could always search in national registers of licensed aesthetic treatment specialists. Your treatment should be performed in a medical environment that affords you privacy and is spotlessly clean. You may want to request to see your chosen practitioner’s training certificate and insurance certificate to ensure that he or she is appropriately trained and insured for the treatment.

Only a medically qualified practitioner should perform Restylane treatments. Depending on your country’s legislation, this may include plastic surgeons, cosmetic clinicians, dermatologists, cosmetic dentists, or aesthetic nurses. If in doubt, please see our list of certified clinics/practitioners close to you.  

You should receive comprehensive information and a detailed explanation regarding your Restylane filler treatment.

•    You should be informed of the possibilities and limitations of treatments with hyaluronic acid.
•    You should receive information about possible side effects and precautions for treatment.
•    You should be informed of the cost of the treatment and possible follow-up treatments.
•    Your questions should be answered to your full satisfaction.

There are several important precautions to discuss with your healthcare practitioner to ensure satisfactory results and avoid any complications. Discuss the following with your healthcare practitioner:
•    If you are taking immunosuppressive medications
•    If you are taking aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or any other medication that affects bleeding
•    If you have any questions about precautions related to the treatment

First, the healthcare practitioner disinfects the area to be treated. A small amount of the appropriate Restylane filler is then injected into the skin through a fine needle or blunt micro-cannula to fill wrinkles, add volume, shape your face or fill your lips. After the injection, your practitioner may gently massage the treated area to even out the result.
