In today’s cutting-edge cosmetic arsenal, there are more tools than ever before to safely and non-surgically roll back the clock on the aging process. Restylane® is an injectable dermal filler that helps smooth, fill, and restore your skin, resulting in a more youthful facial appearance. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, Restylane® can take years off your look by eradicating lines and creases and replenishing volume in hollow, sunken areas.

What is Restylane® ?

The skin’s underlying structures weaken as we age, causing wrinkles, lines, and volume loss, making your face appear tired and depleted. This loss of vitality is due to diminishing compounds in the skin, such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which are responsible for the suppleness, hydration, and radiant glow in youthful complexions.

Restylane® is made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring, hydrating substance that can help offset the HA deficit that happens as we mature. No allergy tests are required with Restylane®. The first treatment lasts about six months, and a second treatment of Restylane® can often last as long as 18 months.

What are the different Restylane® formulations offered?


Restylane® is soft and transparent, so it is especially effective on fine lines, such as those fine lines that appear around the mouth. It can also be used for mid to deep injection into the facial tissue to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, including laugh and frown lines.

Restylane® Lyft

This is a sister product to Restylane®. It also works well on severe lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. The gel particles in Restylane® Lyft are larger and allow the filler to lift and fill the midface. It is very effectively used to build up and add volume to areas that have begun to sag, such as the mid-cheek area. Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft are often used together to achieve the patient’s desired outcome. In addition to facial anti-aging, Restylane® Lyft is helpful for non-surgical hand rejuvenation to restore lost volume to thinning hand tissue, creating a more youthful appearance.

Restylane® Refyne and Defyne

Restylane® Refyne and Defyne are the newest additions to the Restylane® line of products from Galderma. Formulated using a specialized technology, the gel in Restylane® Refyne and Defyne is perfect for helping to support your natural facial expressions. These fillers were designed to correct marionette lines (the lines that run from the corners of your mouth towards your chin) and nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the nose to your chin).

Restylane® Silk

While several fillers are used for lip enhancement, Restylane® Silk is the only filler that has been FDA-approved to enhance lips and smooth the lip lines that start to appear as the years pass. Restylane® Silk is designed to bring natural-looking results in these delicate areas using smaller and more refined hyaluronic acid particles than other Restylane® products.

Restylane® Kysse

Restylane® Kysse is the longest-lasting lip filler injection available. An injectable gel that instantly fills out your lips, Restylane® Kysse complements the naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, rejuvenating your lips to make them look hydrated, soft, plump, and supple. Most importantly, a single session adds volume, depth, and moisture to your lips for 6 to 12 months.

Restylane® Eyelight

Restylane® Eyelight is a hyaluronic acid injectable specifically designed to fill the under-eye area. Eyelight is injected under the eye to add volume and decrease dark under-eye circles to give long-lasting brightness to the eye area.
