Blunt tip

Orifice (opening)
Special design of hub
enabling Restylane products
to flow easier
firmly attached to the syringe

made in a way so that the


hole doesnt scrape the
tissue
allowing the gel to flow easily
through the cannula

Control of flow with the Pix'L needles


High precision result

Customer Benefits
Unique advantages for the physician
Highly precise result
due to a good regulation of flow rate
special internal properties and base allows easy injection of
the product
Easy insertion in the tissue
due to improved mechanical resistance with high flexibility
Limited occurrence of hematomas and bruising
due to the profile of the tip
Easy handling

The Restylane Soft Restoration


(RSR) concept
A perfect combination for a minimally invasive
face volume augmentation over large areas

Background
Two techniques developed in 2009 with Thiebaud
microcannulas:
Dr. Dreissigacker PS Germany:
Individual Face Balance
Dr. Berros OCPS Monaco:
Hyalurostructure

pixL treatments

Full face treatments: to harmonize volumes and fat redistribution.


Ex. Dr. Dreissigacker treatment: Full Face Balance
Single indications for face: (see picture with indications)
- NLF
- Cheeks
- Perioral
- Marionette lines and comissures
- Nose remodelling
- Lip sculpting
- etc.
New indications:
Eyebrow and upper third lifting: Radiant Sun Technique (RST)
Hands volume restoration with Restylane range

pixL + treatments
Oculofacial treatments
Ex. Dr. Berros treatment: Hyalostructure

Restylane Soft Restoration Concept (RSR)


Techniques
Slow insertion and slow injection
NOT designed for disection
Push-ahead (anteriograde) technique
inject when slowly introducing cannula
Fan technique
approx. only 4 injection points for a full-face
Anaesthesia
Hardly needed
Volumes = 6 12 ml for full-face

Restylane Soft Restoration Concept (RSR)


Objective is to replace loss of volume and correct fat redistribution
Sessions
1 full-face treatment (re-treatment every year)
3 sessions for full face:
1st = cheeks/midface and periorbital
2nd = jawline, chin, oral commissures
3rd = NLF, lips and perioral
treatments 1 week apart

PixL +: reinforced at the base to improve


the handling (less flexible) in such a delicate
area as the periorbital region

Clinical Data
Hyalurostructure: how to avoid complications when filling the
periorbital area in the treatment of tear
through. Ph. Berros.
Beausoleil, CHPG,
Monaco. J. Md. Esth. Et Chir. Derm. Vol XXXVI,
144, Dcembre 2009, 189 192.
Objective:
Study how to avoid complications when filling the periorbital area in the
treatment of tear through as those complications limit the development of
this technique.
Methods:

Average quantity of injected HA is 0.8 cc per side.


Analysis of patients at 15 days, 3 months and 6 months after the
treatment.
Results:

Better distribution of the product in every periorbital zones


High patient satisfaction
Less irregularities visible
Less inflammatory reactions
Less risk of hematomas

Conclusion:

Significant improvement

with hyalurostructure. Berros P.
Ophthalmologist, Oculoplasty,
France, CHPG, Monaco. Orbit.
2010 Apr; 29(2):119-25.
Objective:
Study a new technique for treating periorbital hollowing with hyaluronic gel filling using a unique cannula designed specifically for periorbital use.

Methods:

26 patients involved.
0.8 to 1 cc of Hyaluronic Acid injected in both sides.
Analysis of patients just after the injection, in 10 to 25 days and 3 months
after the treatment.
Results:

88% of patients were satisfied or very satisfied and product


distribution was optimal.
Comparing to the treatment with a sharp needle:

Higher aesthetics results

Less irregularities visible

Less inflammatory reactions

Less risk of haematomas


Conclusion: Aesthetic results show significant improvement compared to needle injections. There
are less complication with both injection haematomas and also postoperative fluid stasis.
