This collection of injectable hyaluronic acid fillers offers natural results to smooth out wrinkles and folds on the face, add volume to the lips, and smooth lines around the mouth. Similar to the Juvederm products, they can also add volume to the cheeks. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that is naturally produced by your body. Its functions include providing elasticity and fullness to the skin. With age, the production of HA diminishes. The Restylane family of injectable hyaluronic acid fillers will smooth lines, soften folds, and replace lost volume giving you a natural, more youthful look.
Overview of the Restylane Injectables:
Restylane-L: The original Restylane product and still a major workhorse, Restylane-L® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin and to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement.
Restylane Refyne: One of the newer products offered in the U.S., it features XpresHAn Technology to soften marionette lines and nasolabial folds. The technology allows the natural look of the face to be maintained while also reducing wrinkles.
Restylane Defyne: Also using XpresHAn technology, Restylane® Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Using innovative cross-linking technology, Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is able to help restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance, while helping you maintain your natural expressions. Restylane Defyne and Refyne have been the most popular HA fillers in Europe for the past several years. See below for an example of how natural and beautiful the results can be.
Restylane Lyft: Restylane® Lyft is approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies. This is in addition to treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines).
Restylane Silk: This product is designed specifically for helping patients achieve the lips they want. It can help correct for age related volume loss or help treat patients simply desiring fuller lips. It is also used in the lines surrounding the lips. Approved for both lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth, consider this versatile and natural looking filler at your next appointment.
Patients may also consider Juvederm products, another family of hyaluronic acid based fillers.
