The twin test

We put Restylane to the test in the real world to challenge the idea that beauty treatments lead to unnatural results or simply have no effect, with a live version of the classic ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos.

We asked ten sets of twins to try Restylane; neither twin has previously used Restylane or any other hyaluronic acid products. One of the two twins was treated with Restylane dermal fillers, Restylane SkinboostersTM or a combination of the two, depending on their particular needs, and the other with nothing.

Here’s what some of them had to say.

Confidence-boosting treatment

I feel so much more confident than I did before and feel like I have my youthful looks back again. Everyone comments on how fresh and radiant I look, which gives me such a wonderful feeling.

A former model and beauty queen, 63-year old Gay was both excited and nervous to receive a course of three Restylane Skinboosters to her face, neck and décolletage and Restylane fillers to her face. Her twin sister Zoe is now anxious to receive the treatment too.


I felt much better as the treatments went on, as it did not feel painful at all. The treatment experience was better than expected and the results have left me feeling more confident about myself.”

32-year-old Yen Po from Taiwan was nervous about the treatment, which included Restylane fillers and Skinboosters to her face. But both her and twin sister Yen Fu were reassured and impressed with the results.

Natural-looking results

“The changes are so subtle and natural-looking, it looks as though I’ve just returned from holiday.”

Model and actor Jonathan received Restylane Skinboosters to his face. His twin Edward is impressed with how refreshed his skin now looks.
