Restylane® is approved by the FDA and is known to have results lasting up to 6-12 months or even longer, depending on injection site. This dermal filler is very effective at filling in deep creases and wrinkles in the face, including those that occur between the nose and mouth. Restylane® is also used for lip augmentation, giving the lips a fuller, more sensual aesthetic. Made from hyaluronic acid, a natural human substance, Restylane® does not require allergy testing. Treatment with Restylane® typically takes 15-20 minutes to complete, and patients are often able to get back to their normal routines right after the procedure. Results from Restylane® usually last at least six months, and, in many cases, up to a year. Lip injections can be associated with swelling or bruising for a day or two.
We also offer Restylane-L an injectable composed of hyaluronic acid with 0.3% lidocaine to reduce pain or discomfort after your injection.
Mild to severe wrinkles and facial folds can be smoothed out and rejuvenated with Restylane® Lyft, also consisting of a preparation of hyaluronic acid. One of the newer dermal fillers available, Restylane® Lyft can also reduce the appearance of scarring, and add volume to depressions in the face. There is no allergy testing required for Restylane® Lyft injections, and results typically last up to six to twelve months. Restylane® Lyft works by binding water molecules to maintain volume and renew the skin. The procedure usually takes 15-20 minutes to complete and the effects are immediately noticeable. The effects of Restylane® Lyft can be maintained with follow-up treatments.
Restylane® Refyne & Restylane® Defyne
Approved by the FDA for individuals 22 and older, Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are next-generation dermal fillers intended to smooth the appearance of facial wrinkles such as marionette lines and nasolabial folds. The advanced Restylane® Refyne formula is ideal for softening creases of moderate to severe depths while allowing for completely natural facial movement and skin flexibility. The Restylane® Defyne gel also helps fill prominent lines and creases without restricting natural motions or expressions, though it is better suited for severe deep wrinkles and folds.
Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne—both of which are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA)—do not require allergy testing, and treatment usually takes approximately 15–20 minutes to complete. The rejuvenative effects of these fillers are immediately apparent, and results often last one year, if not longer. For individuals who wish to maintain an ideal outcome, follow-up injections are recommended once the effects of Restylane® Refyne or Restylane® Defyne start to diminish.
