When you are young, collagen and fat are evenly distributed in the face, making skin appear soft and smooth. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin, helps provide fullness and elasticity. As you age, hyaluronic acid begins to diminish, leading to thinner skin and more noticeable lines and wrinkles.
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that rejuvenates and enhances the appearance of aging facial skin. Restylane restores natural volume to your skin—correcting fine lines, creating fuller lips, and enhancing the shape of your cheeks, chin, or even the hollows below your eyes.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a family of natural dermal fillers that restores fullness and volume to the skin. We offer three Restylane products, each of which features a unique particle size to target different problem areas:
- Restylane contains medium-sized particles of hyaluronic acid to correct moderate to deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
- Restylane Lyft contains larger hyaluronic acid particles that add lift and volume to the cheeks while also correcting severe wrinkles.
- Restylane Silk has smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles to create fuller and more accentuated lips.
What are the benefits of Restylane®?
Thanks to the variety of Restylane® products available, we can tailor your treatment for precise results in specific areas of your face. This dermal filler can smooth away fine lines and deep wrinkles, create well-defined, symmetrical lips, and restore contour to your cheeks. Restylane is an immediate and safe way to attain a more youthful-looking facial appearance.
How does Restylane® work?
Restylane restores the skin’s contour by increasing volume in the tissue. Made of hyaluronic acid, a biodegradable, natural substance, these injectables strengthen the natural collagen fiber layer that supports your skin.
The procedure only takes 10-20 minutes with little to no downtime, so you can return to work or your daily routine immediately. The length of time results last varies by product:
- Restylane: Up to 18 months
- Restylane Lyft: Up to 12 months in the cheeks and 6 months in facial wrinkles and folds
- Restylane Silk: Up to 6 months
