Which Restylane Filler Is Right for You?

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.

Restylane Original

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.

Restylane Lyft

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

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.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.
Leah G.
Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.
Frieda S.
i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
