What is Restylane
Restylane is a crystal-clear, biodegradable gel designed for reducing wrinkles and sagging under the eyes, enhancing facial contours, treating under-projected cheekbones and recessive chins, and sculpting lips.
During treatment, Restylane gel is injected into the skin in small amounts with a fine needle. The gel produces volume under the wrinkle, which is then lifted up and smoothed out to create shape and enhancement of your features. Restylane also increases collagen production and may prevent the breakdown of existing collagen making it so the effects are more pronounced and longer-lasting after multiple regular injections.
Common Areas of Treatment:
Glabellar Lines (Between the eyebrows)
The length of time your Restylane treatment may last varies from each individual and depends on many factors but is typically anywhere from six months to a year depending on the area of treatment. For example, a lip augmentation treatment may only last six months and a wrinkle and fold treatment can last up to a year.
Restylane® Refyne and Defyne
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne, two of the newest dermal fillers in this family of injectables, are comprised of hyaluronic acid and target laugh lines around the mouth such as marionette lines and nasolabial folds. Made with Restylane®’s proprietary XpresHan™ technology, these dermal fillers target visible signs of aging while maintaining your natural facial expressions.
Restylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to restore volume and erase wrinkles in the cheeks, the midface area and the back of hands. As the skin starts to sag, Restylane Lyft can rejuvenate and lift areas that have been subject to the natural aging process without an “overdone” look.
