Restylane has been used by physicians worldwide since 1996 and was FDA approved in 2003. Restylane is completely biocompatible and therefore allergy testing is not required; allergy testing is necessary for collagen injections. After your treatment you might have mild redness and swelling, lasting no more than 5 to 7 days.
Bovine (cow) collagen was the only available filler for years and required allergy testing 4 weeks prior to the procedure. Results generally lasted 3 months. In 2003, the FDA approved human, bioengineered collagen fillers known as Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast. Test patches were eliminated, however results still last on average of 2 to 4 months. Collagen fillers from animal sources are derived from the hides of cows (specially bred and slaughtered for this purpose) or obtained from the skin of pigs. Zyderm and Zyplast are considered bovine-collagen fillers. Once again, results last 2 to 4 months before reapplication is needed.
