Restylane® is an injectable gel filler which adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane® is also FDA approved for lip enhancement in patients 21 years of age and older, and can be used to treat marionette lines (the area from the corner of your mouth to your jaw line), and the corners of the mouth.
How Does Restylane® Work?
Are There Side Effects?
Is Restylane® Right for me?
Side effects may include swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 – 18 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.
Because only you know what look is right for you, it’s important to discuss treatment and expectations with your healthcare provider. During a consultation, he will determine if Restylane® is right for you, plus how much product is appropriate to enhance your look.
Restylane® Refyne and Defyne
Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne help smooth out deep laugh lines. Skin loses elasticity with age. As a result, nasolabial folds appear more noticeable.
Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are specifically formulated dermal fillers made with advanced technology. It helps correct these lines for a more natural look. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Refyne and Defyne is also designed to help support your natural expression. As a result, the movement when you’re smiling, frowning, and puckering up is natural. Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are the only fillers on the market that have been shown in clinical trials to help maintain natural movement and expressions.
Side effects may include swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild and normally last up to seven days in nasolabial folds. In the lips, these can last roughly 14-18 days. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 35 years old. Bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years of age.
Restylane® Silk is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age. Just like the other members of the Restylane® family, Restylane® Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid — a sugar that is naturally present in your skin. Restylane® Silk is specifically formulated for lip enhancement and treating wrinkles surrounding the mouth.
The lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging as an individual gets older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape, and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these areas. That’s why it’s made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products. Restylane® Silk’s unique particle gel formula, along with an ultra fine needle designed for improved accuracy, helps give you softer, more precise results — just what you need for a natural-looking smile.
It’s important to discuss treatment and expectations with your healthcare provider. During a consultation, he will determine if Restylane® is right for you, and how much product is appropriate to enhance your look.
