Continue reading to learn all about Restylane and how it can help you look and feel your best.
What Is Restylane?
Restylane is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is injected into soft tissue to combat signs of aging and enhance facial features.
It is an excellent option for women and men who want to smooth wrinkles and lines, restore youthful fullness, eradicate hollows, improve facial symmetry, and augment lips and cheeks – without surgery, incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.
How Does Restylane Work?
The key ingredient in Restylane is hyaluronic acid – a naturally-occurring sugar molecule found in skin and joints.
Hyaluronic acid is extremely hydrophilic and can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. As such, when administered to the mid-to-deep dermis, hyaluronic acid readily binds to water and fills in deficits.
It also produces remarkable plumping and hydrating effects, making Restylane a safe and effective treatment for enhancing lips and cheeks.
What Are the Different Restylane Fillers?
Each Restylane filler is designed to correct one or more cosmetic concerns. This versatility allows injectors to tailor treatment to each patient.
Here’s a look at the different Restylane products:
Restylane is indicated for correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and lip augmentation.
Restylane Lyft is designed for cheek augmentation and contouring.
Restylane Silk is a thinner hyaluronic acid formulation that’s well-suited to subtle lip enhancement and eradicating vertical lip lines.
Restylane Refyne and Defyne are flexible fillers that are engineered with XpresHAn Technology. This design allows natural facial movement, with long-lasting correction of nasolabial folds.
How Long Does Restylane Last?
Depending on the Restylane product used, results can last anywhere between six months and 18 months.
