This unique hyaluronic acid filler contains Q-Med’s NASHA Technology, which features non-animal, stabilised hyaluronic acid. Generated using the Streptococcus species of bacteria, this form of hyaluronic acid allows for increased patient tolerability and greater longevity in the skin. Additionally, it aids in the smoothing out of moderate to severe wrinkles and lines by adding fullness and volume to the skin.
This formulation also contains 0.3% lidocaine hydrochloride, which helps to reduce pain in and around the injection site. Clinical studies have shown that 71.7% of patients experienced less pain during the injection process with Restylane 0.5mL with Lidocaine versus regular Restylane.
