Restylane® Family Of Fillers

  • Restylane® is the original dermal facial filler of the Restylane® family and is used to fill in moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
  • Restylane® Silk & Restylane Kysse are specially formulated to add fullness and definition to the lips. It also fills in vertical lines around the mouth.
  • Restylane® Lyft is designed for volume replacement and adds volume to the cheeks and the back of the hands. It is the first and only dermal filler to gain FDA approval for restoring fullness to the hands.
  • Restylane® Refyne & Restylane® Defyne both smooth lines that extend from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth i. e. nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Restylane®Defyne is used to treat more severe lines.
  • Restylane® is formulated with hyaluronic acid, which is a transparent gel that occurs naturally in the body.

How Does Restylane® Work?

The hyaluronic acid particles in Restylane® attract and bind water molecules, which helps to boost the volume of the skin.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced by the body and is responsible for giving skin plumpness and volume. Less hyaluronic acid is produced over time, so the skin starts to lose fat, and wrinkles and fine lines develop. Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid, so it helps to return some of the plumpness and volume to the skin.

Am I A Good Candidate for Restylane®?

If you would like to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, plump your lips, even improve the appearance of your hands, you may be a good candidate for Restylane®.

Your Restylane® Consultation

Restylane® is a versatile family of dermal fillers that can be used to rejuvenate different areas of the face and hands. Dr. Holley or one of our providers will review the options with you to determine which products would be most suitable based on your areas of concern. He will then customize a treatment plan for you based on your facial rejuvenation goals. Your consultation is also the ideal time to discuss possible risks and complications of the procedure.

How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?

Restylane® takes about 30 minutes to administer.

What Results Will I See?

The effects of Restylane® can be seen immediately after treatment and improvements may continue for up to two weeks. Restylane® is a temporary but relatively long-lasting filler that can last up to 18 months.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is no downtime after Restylane® so you can resume daily activities right away. You may experience some swelling and bruising near the treatment areas, but the swelling should resolve within 2-3 days.
