Restylane Skin Care - A Review


Ooo-la-la


Ilze , my fabulous rep from Conquest Surgical gave me some samples of the new Restylane Skin Care to try out. I've tried teeny samples before but you can't tell from that if the product actually works or not. So far I've been using the products for a week (and only Restylane products) and abandoned my usual skin care routine. Wow!Wow! and Wow! (yes , terrible grammer I know). I've been using their day cream with and SPF 15, the Facial Cleanser(which my husband has nicked) and the Night Cream. What an amazing difference in how moisturized,luminous and supple my skin is. It's actually glowing. What really blew me over was the softening of two fine lines across my forehead. To me , they were glaring imperfections - the bane of my life (okay , that is a bit dramatic admittedly) . I was reluctant to inject Botox in the area because of  my teeny forehead and the potential for my brow's to drop. (Update : now I do using about only 2-4 units and it works quite well in conjunction with a lateral brow lift and the frown lines) and  I'm quite impressed with the results and I am going to continue using the products in conjunction with my Lamelle Products ( I can't help it -as you know I'm a Serum/Cream/Chemical Peel junkie) next week.

The creams and facial cleanser are light weight have this amazing, fresh smell (aloe? sweet melon? I don't know but it is invigorating!) .  Refreshingly simple but efficient and effective - that's what this skin care range is about.

I  trust in Restylane as I only use their FDA-approved range of fillers and injectable skinboosters on my patients.

The technology behind Restylane

The addition of stabilized hyaluronic acid, using the NASHA™ technology, enhances the long-lasting moisturizing effect of the cream and the crystal-shaped NASHA particles make the skin glow and fill out minimal lines. Unlike the plethora of lotions and potions out there with unstabilized hyaluronic acid (HA) (half-life of 48hours) the hyaluronic acid was developed from the same amazing technology that Restylane dermal fillers possess. What is so fabulous about HA - it can absorb a 1000 times it's own weight in water. That is a lot of plumping power!

Rinse face with water, place a tiny amount of the cleanser in the palm of your hand, add water and work into a rich foam. Massage onto face and neck then rinse with water. Repeat this process for the best result. The cleanser can also be used as a cleansing milk, using cotton pads and less water.


Next I'd like to try their Night Serum with a staggering 0,5% of Retinol (excellent for improving the epidermis).

Love , love , love Restylane !

UPDATE: 2 weeks into using the Restylane Skin care and getting loads of compliments.

UPDATE :  My patients that have started on the Restylane skincare  absolutely love it! I also use the Recover Creamfrom the range after all my Botox and Filler treatments and it really is a little miracle in minimizing bruising. I also love the travel pack - it's really convenient when on holiday

The skin care range is relatively affordable and because of the airless pump you can be assured that there is no contamination and no waste - every last drop is pumped out . No crazy promises - just real results.

  1. Will definately try Restylane. I am 57 years old. Maybe it's too late for me. But have spent an absolute fortune on facial creams. Too scared of botox or fillers.Your review sounds too good to be true because all of the creams I have purchased have all promised the same. So will get back to you in 4 weeks.

  2. Well the Restylane just claims to provide amazing moisture and not zany claims like get wrinkle free skin in 7 days. With any skincare product or treatment wait two months to start seeing results as the skin's cycle is 28 days (so the 7 day thing is just bogus unless of course it is Botox) I like the product very much and I use the night serum as part of my regime as well as loads of other things I am a product junkie.
