What is Restylane?
RESTYLANE® is a dermal filler used for mid-to-deep injections for moderate to severe wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and lip and cheek augmentation. The filler is composed of biodegradable, non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA), a natural substance found in the body that provides volume and fullness to the skin.
RESTYLANE® is formulated with a unique cross-linking gel made with XpresHAn Technology to maintain the patient’s natural expressions. Results are evident immediately following the procedure. As with any dermal filler, most patients need a follow-up treatment 5-9 months after the initial treatment since the injectable gel is eventually absorbed by natural body processes.
The RESTYLANE® family of fillers includes Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Silk, and Restylane Lyft. Restylane-L is the same substance but with lidocaine added as an anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the injections.
RESTYLANE® helps fight moderate to severe wrinkles in the face, particularly the nasolabial folds, which are the lines from the corner of your nose to each corner of the mouth. The filler is injected beneath the skin to restore fullness to facial wrinkles, revealing a more youthful-looking appearance. Results last up to 18 months.
