Advantages of Restylane filler
Since Restylane is a non-animal product, there is almost no risk of any allergic reactions. Restylane is a biodegradable product, whoch over time: the NASHA gel is completely eliminated from the body, leaving absolutely no trace. When the process of Restylane breaks down over time it is water takes its place. After it is totally absorbed, Restylane will turn into water and carbon dioxide which will disapper and leave your body without a trace.
