Restylane is a dermal filler used to treat marionette lines, nasolabial folds, sagging and facial wrinkles. This unique injectable can even be used to add fullness and hydration to aging hands. Its main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a compound found naturally in youthful skin that helps exude a radiant glow. As we age, hyaluronic acid is depleted, necessitating a cosmetic intervention.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is a safe and effective hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that is formulated to correct stubborn facial folds, creases, wrinkles and lines. Our natural supply of hyaluronic acid dwindles with age, so Restylane works overtime to help combat a loss of skin suppleness and hydration. Restylane is injected with a painless, ultra-fine needle and is laced with lidocaine, a topical anesthetic, ensuring patient comfort and relaxation.

Restylane can be used to treat:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Lip borders
  • Jowls
  • Folds between eyebrows

What are the different Restylane formulations?

  • Restylane Refyne and Defyne – These formulations protect the facial expression, keeping it natural and spontaneous while reversing common signs of aging. The crosslinked XpresHAn technology improves elasticity, creating a more radiant complexion free from laugh lines, nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
  • Restylane Silk – This product has been approved by the FDA to treat wrinkles surrounding the mouth as well as lip lines. The particles in Restylane Silk are smooth and fine, integrating easily into the lips and the corners of the mouth. The result is natural fullness that is youthful and alluring.
  • Restylane Lyft – This clear hyaluronic acid heavy gel was created to add plumpness to thinning facial contours. The denser particles can be injected at a deeper level to help fight wrinkles and creases.

What are the benefits of Restylane?

  • Adds volume to the cheeks
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
  • Helps augment the lips non-surgically
  • Treats the jowls and sagging jawline
  • Can help rejuvenate the hands
  • Painless and non-invasive
  • Little downtime or recovery
