What is Restylane?

October 10, 2018

Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler applied as a facial injection. Hyaluronic acids are sugars found naturally in the skin that help improve its hydration, fullness and elasticity. The purpose of Restylane is to diminish wrinkles while restoring volume and fullness to the treatment area, which may include the face or hands.

The Restylane family of products includes Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Silk and Restylane Defyne. Each clear gel formulation is designed to fulfill a specific purpose.

Restylane Lyft injections in Marietta
Restylane Lyft

Make Restylane Lyft part of your anti-aging regimen to correct age-related loss of volume and contour in your cheeks, mid-to-lower face and hands. It can also be used to fill out facial folds between the nose and mouth, known as nasolabial folds.

Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic filler to treat face and hands. It contains a thicker gel than other dermal fillers, providing durable scaffolding beneath concave areas. The product is carefully injected to create the most natural-looking contours in the treatment area. Plumping up the skin naturally reduces wrinkles and folds as well.

Restylane Silk

If you miss the plump pout of your youth, Restylane Silk can restore it to you. This dermal filler is specifically designed to augment the lips and smooth out wrinkles around the mouth. You could be an excellent candidate for this treatment if you have lost lip volume as a result of aging, or if you have smoker’s lines.

Restylane Silk consists of a thinner gel than other Restylane products and is delivered with an ultrafine needle to ensure softer, more precise results. This is the key to avoiding stiffness or unnaturally full “trout lips.”

Restylane Refyne

Use Restylane Refyne to smooth nasolabial folds and marionette lines on the outside corners of your mouth, taking years off your appearance in the process. This unique dermal filler offers the benefit of making you look younger while retaining the flexibility you need to make natural-looking facial expressions.

Restylane Refyne is injected deep into the nasolabial folds for youthful volume around your mouth. The hyaluronic acid used in this dermal filler doesn’t make your face feel stiff, so you can go on smiling and laughing with confidence.

Restylane Defyne

Similar to Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne targets nasolabial folds and marionette lines around your mouth. Restylane Defyne could be right for you if you have deeper folds and wrinkles that need a stronger dermal filler.

Restylane Defyne contains proprietary XpresHAn technology, which incorporates a special hyaluronic acid compound to fill out deep laugh lines while maintaining a natural-looking smile. Your aesthetician will help you determine if Restylane Defyne is the right treatment for your deep creases and folds.
