Restylane Dermal Fillers for nose

About Restylane fillers

The highly regarded Restylane collection was introduced in 1996 by the Sweden-based Q-Med AB. Over the years, the product range has been diversified and broadened to meet the ever-growing needs of dermal fillers. Bestselling fillers such as Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, and Restylane are specially formulated to treat facial lines and wrinkles. In addition, there are many other Restylane products that address the specific needs of patients. For example, Restylane Silk has lip-enhancing properties and can be used for treating lines around the mouth. Restylane Lyft, on the other hand, is ideal for lifting and volumizing the lips. At the same time, the filler is effective in enhancing facial volume and filling in hollow or sunken temples. It has also recently been approved for hand treatments. More importantly, Restylane Lyft can be used for a non-surgical nose job.

Restylane for non-surgical nose job

Restylane fillers (in particular Restylane Lyft) can be used on depressed regions of the nose, helping to smooth the bumps on the nasal bridge. At the same time, Restylane Lyft is able to lift the tip or angle of the nose. While it is not possible to shrink the size of the nose, Restylane can make the nose appear straighter. Restylane fillers are injected via a minimally-invasive procedure, therefore not likely to cause any severe complications. Plus, the results are comparable to that of a conventional surgical nose job. Restylane for nose is designed to deliver long-lasting results. While individual results may vary, Restylane can last for around 12 months in most patients.

How does Restylane work?

The dramatic nose-enhancing results can be attributed to hyaluronic acid, the key ingredient in Restylane products. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide found abundantly in the skin and cartilage. Having water retention properties, hyaluronic acid swells in gel form when comes in contact with moisture, thereby exerting its smoothing and filling effects. Manufactured using the cutting-edge NAHSA Technology, Restylane fillers are able to mimic the actions of hyaluronic acid in the body, delivering natural yet dramatic results. Restylane Lyft is designed with a unique particle size for tailored treatment. Generally, the larger the particle size, the greater the lifting effects. Some Restylane fillers are also incorporated with the patented XpresHAn Technology, which contributes to the flexibility of the gel.

Is Restylane for nose safe?

Restylane fillers have undergone extensive safety testing in many studies. Therefore, they are associated with a minimal risk of side effects. In fact, many Restylane fillers (e.g. Restylane Lyft) has been approved by FDA.

While generally safe, Restylane for nose can potentially cause injection-related side effects such as discoloration, pain, redness, tenderness, itching and swelling. However, these symptoms are usually short-lived and will eventually resolve themselves. Restylane is not likely to cause any major side effects if used correctly.

To ensure patient safety, Restylane for nose should not be used in individuals with known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid (or any other inactive ingredients in the formulation). Most of the Restylane fillers (including Restylane Lyft) are intended for adult patients over 18 years old.
