Restylane science

How Restylane works

Hyaluronic acid and aging

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar that keeps our skin hydrated and creates volume through its ability to bind water molecules. The Restylane range of products is designed to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid.

However, as we age, our bodies make less hyaluronic acid. Our skin begins to sag and look thinner, losing its radiance and youthful appearance. Injecting hyaluronic acid can help reduce the visible signs of aging.

The Restylane range utilizes two technologies to stabilize hyaluronic acid into a gel form. When injected, it adds volume to smooth wrinkles and enhance facial balance where needed.

Restylane science

The Restylane range of products are created with two patented technologies, NASHATM and OBTTM.

  • NASHATM technology creates a precise, firmer gel texture intended for a more pronounced lift.

  • OBTTM (Optimal Balance TechnologyTM) creates a softer gel texture, allowing for smoother integration into the tissue for natural-looking results.


Restylane’s two technologies offer the broadest range of hyaluronic acid gels available today. This allows your healthcare professional to create a tailored treatment plan based on your specific and unique needs.

Restylane Skinboosters science

Restylane Skinboosters is a different type of aesthetic treatment. Also designed with patented NASHATM technology, Restylane Skinboosters uses a unique form of hyaluronic acid. It naturally integrates into the skin to improve skin smoothness, appearance and elasticity in the face (lower cheek/jawline), upper neck and back of the hands.
