Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a complex sugar that is found in our skin and joints. It also contains an anesthetic (lidocaine). Very rarely someone may have an allergic reaction to the lidocaine but not to the hyaluronic acid.

Restylane is a dermal filler that is made up of hylauranic acid which is naturally found in our skin. However if you do suffer from severe allergies, allergies to lidocaine and/or have history of anaphylaxis you may not want to use dermal fillers.

The active ingredient in Restylane is hyaluronic acid, a compound that is produced naturally by the body. Restylane is the synthetic version of hyaluronic acid, but we have never seen an allergic reaction to Restylane in our practice. Granulomas are bumps caused by inflammation after injection and these can occur even if you are not allergic to the product. Although granulomas do occur in some patients, they can easily be reversed by injecting hyaluronidaise, a product that will break down the Restylane immediately.

I had a filler six months back, and as the results fade away I would like to get another filler treatment. However, I have developed a small lump under the skin in my laugh line which is not visible, but I can feel it when I press the area. Can I have more filler with the lump still there, or does that need to be addressed first?

I had Restylane injected into the perpendicular lines above my upper lip last week. When the swelling went down, the areas that were injected looked exactly like it did before the treatment. Could the filler be inert or defective? I feel like it is an "Emperor's New Clothes" story!
