What Is Restylane?

Restylane is a line of FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that provide natural-looking volume to cheeks, lips, mouth area, hands, and nasolabial folds or smile lines. The minimally invasive injection procedure is performed in a doctor’s office under local anesthesia. Recovery from Restylane procedures is typically quick and results appear almost immediately after the procedure.

The Restylane products available at The Med Spot include:

  • Restylane
  • Restylane Lyft
  • Restylane Refyne
  • Restylane Defyne
  • Restylane Kysse

How Does Restylane Work?

Hyaluronic acid, the main ingredient in Restylane products, is a sugar that occurs naturally in the skin’s connective tissue to provide fullness and volume. During the aging process, hyaluronic acid gradually diminishes, along with collagen and elastin, which results in wrinkles and sagging skin.

Restylane is used to replace the lost hyaluronic acid. Doctors use ultra-fine needles to carefully inject Restylane under the skin and into the treatment areas to restore lost volume and smooth and plump fine lines.

What Restylane Can Do for You?

Each clear hyaluronic acid gel product in the Restylane line is used to target different areas of the face.

  • Restylane is primarily used to treat moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. It is also used for lip augmentation.
  • Restylane Lyft is used to restore volume and contours in the cheeks, face, and hands. It is particularly useful in filling out nasolabial folds, which are also known as laugh lines or smile lines. The Lyft gel is thicker than many dermal fillers. It is the only hyaluronic filler approved by the FDA to treat the face and hands.
  • Restylane Refyne uses a proprietary XpresHAn Technology to soften mild to moderate laugh lines and give a youthful appearance, while still providing flexibility for natural facial expressions. It is also used on marionette lines, which run from the corners of the mouth to the chin.
  • Restylane Defyne also uses the XpresHAn Technology but for more moderate to severe facial lines around the mouth and the lower part of the face. Defyne is also used to correct chin retrusion. Commonly known as a weak or receding chin, chin retrusion occurs when the chin slopes toward the neck rather than jutting out.
  • Restylane Kysse is a lip filler that uses the XpresHAn Technology to reduce lip wrinkles, enhance lip color and provide full, natural-looking lips. The procedure can last for up to a year.

Why Is Restylane Better Than the Alternatives?

Compared to other hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane is a better choice for adding volume to sunken facial areas and creating contours because its texture is more cohesive and moldable. Juvederm typically does a better job at addressing fine lines and wrinkles.

The Restylane family of products is most effective in treating lips, cheeks, and around the nose. Several of the Restylane products – Refyne, Defyne, and Kysse – also incorporate the proprietary XpresHAn Technology that produces more natural-looking results.

Who Should Ask For Restylane?

Anyone looking to reduce the signs of aging and restore their skin volume and youthfulness would be a suitable candidate for Restylane products. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in our skin to give it fullness and elasticity. But, as we age, the hyaluronic acid in our skin diminishes, causing wrinkles and folds to appear. The result can be thinner, sagging skin, and deep lines.

Restylane offers a perfect alternative to invasive surgeries such as facelifts, fat transfers, and liposuction. The Restylane family of HA gel fillers can replace the lost hyaluronic acid in your skin and restore the volume to your face without the need to go under the knife.

Restylane is minimally invasive, fast-acting, and can be done right in a doctor’s office without any downtime. People can get the treatment on their lunch break and go back to work afterward.
