Restylane, a hyaluronic acid, has been used for over two decades in tens of millions of treatments. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally occuring in the skin. With age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin is reduced. As a result, the skin loses some of its volume and elasticity. This then can be the cause of wrinkles. By replenishing the lost hyaluronic acid,the skin regains its volume and natural elasticity, and wrinkles fade.
Why have a Restylane treatment?
Using the Restylane® filler line, your physician can draw up a personal treatment plan to reduce your first signs of facial ageing. Restylane has been formulated specifically to recover face volume and embellish the face shape and its contours. The results are immediately noticable and remain visible for as long as 12 months depending on the area treated.

Before the Restylane treatment, we will take photographs for your personal file. These are for later reference, e.g. for when you return for your check-up to discuss the results. Please make sure you arrive at our clinic 30 minutes before your appointment is due, so we can apply the anaesthetic Emla cream and give it time to work in. After treatment, you will receive a post-treatment information sheet. At your check-up, we will take further photographs for your file.

Because of the effects of natural aging, certain facial features will stick out more. Most people opt for a subtle correction, but not a full-scale transformation. The doctors at The Body Clinic will take your natural facial contours into account, and work under the motto ‘Less is more’.
Before and after the treatment
Please make sure to arrive 30 minutes prior to your Restylane treatment so that we can apply the anaesthetic cream. To prevent bruises from forming, you are advised to stop using all food supplements, vitamins and fish oil pills for five days prior to treatment. Arnica drops help reduce the risk of bruising. You can start taking these drops five days before your Restylane treatment. You are strongly requested not to take consume alcoholic beverages for 48 hours before your procedure. You are also requested not to take any blood-thinning medications such as Aspirin, Naproxen or Ibuprofen, unless with your family doctor’s approval.
We advise you not to use any make-up for the first few hours after your Restylane treatment. You should also be careful to avoid direct sunlight to your skin. This applies to saunas and tanning salons as well. Use a sunblock with an SPF 30 or stronger every day. We urge you not to visit your beautician for the first two weeks following treatment, e.g. for a scrub, peel or laser treatment.
The first couple of days after Restylane treatment you may suffer some swelling, bruising or an overly sensitive skin. These symptoms will fade after a few days.
On average, the Restylane brand hyaluronic filler takes approximately a year to be broken down by the body.
The Body Clinic offers free, no obligation consultations prior to treatment with one of its physicians. During a consultation, we check to see if you qualify for treatment, chart your problem areas and give you tailor-made treatment advice. If you wish, you can have a Restylane filler treatment on the same day.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid that has been on the market for years and whose safety has been proven over the long term. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally occurring in the human skin. Allergic reactions are therefore highly unlikely: an added advantage of this injectable. Another advantage is that hyaluronic acid can be dissolved in a substance known as Hyason. This fluid removes the Restylane from the skin within days, reversing the Restylane treatment.

What is the difference between hyaluronic acid and Restylane?
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient in Restylane. Other fillers based on hyaluronic acid are Juvederm and Teosyal.
Won’t Restylane treatments make me look unnatural?
The physicians at The Body Clinic always take the natural ageing process as a guide for cosmetic correction. We only add volume in places where volume has been lost. This guarantees a beautifully natural result. For our work method, please look under physicians or philosophy. Are you not satisfied with how natural the results are? Then there’s always a possibility to inject hyazon, a substance that will dissolve the filler Restylane within hours.
Will I get lumps from using Restylane filler?
Restylane does not cause granulomas, or lumps. In earlier days permanent fillers were used. Permanent fillers have a different chemical composition which allows them stay in the skin permanently. Sometimes the composition would trigger the body’s natural defence system to resist the injectable. This reaction can cause formation of granulomas, or bumps. Restylane is made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid cannot evoke such a reaction because it is a substance that occurs naturally in the body.
Can I go out into the sun after Restylane treatment?
You must avoid the sun for 1 week after being treated with the injectable Restylane.
When can I get back to work after a Restylane treatment?
A Restylane treatment is truly a lunchtime treatment. Aside from a little redness and swelling and sometimes a tiny bruise, Restylane treatment is invisible. In other words – you can go back to work straight away.
Is a Restylane injection procedure painful?
Restylane treatment is generally considered not painful, although individual variation in pain sensation may be expected. The physicians at The Body Clinic often use anaesthetic cream and cold packs to make the treatment more comfortable.
Should my skin be tested?
Restylane consists of a biodegradable substance identical to the body’s own. Restylane does not contain any human or animal substances. There is practically no risk of allergic reaction. So there’s no need for you to take an allergy test prior to the procedure.
When will I start noticing results after a Restylane treatment?
The results are immediately noticeable. However, the effect tends to become a little less pronounced in the days following treatment, because the initial swelling subsides, which has a temporary filling effect.
Where can I get a Restylane treatment?
The Body Clinic has two locations, one in Amsterdam and one in Duiven (close to Arnhem). You can reach us by phone: 020-4638668 or by mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
