Restylane is a popular line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that can help people achieve a more youthful appearance by reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. Restylane plumps under the skin, providing more volume to create the desired aesthetic effects, and treatments only take about 15-20 minutes with immediate results. Several different Restylane products are available, each designed to target specific areas of the face and provide different results. If you are considering Restylane injections, here are the differences in some of the top formulas.
The original Restylane formula is FDA-approved for cosmetic treatments, from plumping the lips to smoothing away lines or wrinkles. The original formula is very versatile and is used throughout the face to provide contours, plumpness and other enhancements to the face. A more refined Restylane formula may be recommended if a more precise area is targeted.
One of the most popular Restylane products is Restylane Lyft, designed to add volume to the cheeks and midface. This product is especially popular among people who have lost facial volume due to aging, as it can help restore a more youthful, plump appearance to the face. Restylane Lyft can also fill in deep wrinkles and lines around the mouth and nose, also known as smile lines or nasolabial folds.
Restylane Silk is another popular product in the Restylane line, and it is specifically designed to enhance the lips and smooth out fine lines around the mouth. This product is made with smaller particles than other Restylane fillers, which makes it ideal for achieving precise results in delicate areas like the lips. Many people choose Restylane Silk for its ability to create a natural-looking enhancement to the lips without the need for surgery or more invasive procedures.
Restylane Refyne and Defyne
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are both designed to target moderate-to-severe wrinkles and lines around the mouth – the nasolabial folds or smile lines. These products are made with XpresHAn technology, which helps the gel blend more seamlessly with the skin for a more natural look. Restylane Refyne is ideal for treating fine lines and wrinkles, while Restylane Defyne is better suited for deeper lines and wrinkles. Both can last up to a year before the treatment needs to be repeated to maintain the desired results.
Overall, the Restylane line offers a wide range of options for people looking to enhance their appearance and reduce the signs of aging with formulas that can last several months to almost two years. Whether you’re looking to add volume to your cheeks, smooth out fine lines around your mouth, or enhance your lips, there is a Restylane product that can help you achieve your goals.
