The Restylane product family is a brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, including Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne. Each is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid specifically formulated to act like the body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Each Restylane product is designed for a specific purpose, with Restylane Silk being the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip augmentation and smoothing wrinkles around the mouth. It is composed of a gel that is smaller and softer than other Restylane products, resulting in a smoother and more precise result, ideal for restoring and enhancing lips.
In addition, Silk is administered using an ultra-thin needle, which is designed to improve accuracy and accuracy. Restylane Lyft is approved by the FDA to correct volume deficit on the back of hands, for cheek augmentation and correction of age-related mid-facial contour deficiencies, as well as for the treatment of moderate to severe facial folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines). Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic filler to treat the face and hands. Lyft contains 0.3% lidocaine, which is added to reduce discomfort during treatment.
Restylane is used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). It is also indicated for lip augmentation. Restylane Refyne integrates with your skin to help smooth the lines that run along the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines), while allowing you to look more natural through a variety of facial expressions. Restylane Defyne is designed to act like your body's own hyaluronic acid for help smooth deeper lines around the mouth (nasolabial folds and puppet lines), while allowing you to look more natural through a variety of facial expressions.
Dermal fillers are facial injection treatments used to help diminish wrinkles and restore volume and fullness on the face and hands. There are several types of dermal fillers, one of which is hyaluronic acid. All Restylane products are transparent hyaluronic acids, which are sugars found naturally in the skin and that help provide hydration, fullness and elasticity. The “Cupid's bow” is the double curve of the upper lip, which resembles the bow of Cupid, the Roman god of love.
It is believed that the upper lip is more attractive when it is well-defined and when both sides look the same. Everyone's facial structure is different, as is the ideal shape and size of each person's lips. Restylane Silk is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control, resulting in silkier, softer lips and natural-looking results. With full treatment, you can see lasting results of up to 18 months in nasolabial folds with Restylane; 10 to 12 months on cheeks, up to 6 months on the backs of hands and up to 6 months in facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, with Restylane Lyft; 3 to 6 months for lips and perioral rhytids with Restylane Silk; 11 and up to 12 months in facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds and puppet lines) with Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne.
Depending on your volume needs, most Restylane treatment appointments last less than an hour and start working almost immediately add volume to smooth wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane products act like the body's own hyaluronic acid (and eventually break down naturally). Initial treatments with Restylane are usually completed in one or two sessions, as needed. Depending on your individual body chemistry, you will work with your specialist to determine a maintenance schedule.
Talk to your doctor or healthcare professional about your individual needs. You can only receive Restylane products from a trained specialist. Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are administered by a doctor or qualified healthcare professional. After treatment, you may experience side effects such as swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lumping, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function.
They are usually mild in severity and usually last less than 7 days in the nasolabial folds and less than 14 to 18 days on the lips. Patients should be limited to 6.0 ml per treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. For the treatment of volume deficit in the hands, patients should be limited to 3.0 ml per hand per treatment. Swelling may be more likely in patients younger than 36 years old, and bruising may be more likely in patients older than 35 years of age.
