Q-Med, maker of Restylane and Perlane, recently announced their new line of skincare products at the World Congress for Anti-Aging Medicine.

The new products are made using the same patented NASHA technology used in Restylane injectable filler, giving the creams a pleasing consistency while preserving moisture and adding lustre to the skin.

Q-Med explains the purpose of the new products in an official press release: “The secret to beautiful skin is balanced skin hydration combined with a healthy and protective skin barrier. Restylane Skincare combines these two qualities in an innovative series of creams [that] supplement the effect of injectable Restylane products.”

What is NASHA?

Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid is the secret to Restylane’s success. Hyaluronic acid is present in many of your body tissues, serving many important functions. Because HA can bind water, it hydrates the skin and lubricates the joints. Stabilization allows the product to last longer and produce visible, enduring results.

Although Restylane and Perlane have been around longer than most wrinkle fillers, they are not the only ones to use hyaluronic acid. Products like Prevelle, Hydrelle and others are now widely available for similar purposes. But according to Q-Med, these fillers are not interchangeable with Restylane.

The least modified competing products are still considerably more chemically changed than the NASHA gels. Competing products are either not as viscous as the NASHA gels, which means that they cannot build and retain volume in the same way, or they are considerably more chemically changed.

The new line of Restylane Skincare products will be available in Sweden and Europe this summer. If they become available here in Cincinnati, we will be sure to let you know.
