Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid diminishes as we age, causing skin to lose volume while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear. Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Its primary function is to bind and absorb water, which creates volume in the face. Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a hyaluronic acid (HA). As you age, the amount of HA reduces in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds.
Restylane® Lyft (formerly called Perlane) is more concentrated, and offers beautiful enhancement for additional areas of the face — the lips, the chin line, the cheeks, around the mouth and eyes, and very deep folds between the lips and nose. Perlane is used over Restylane® to correct deeper wrinkles and give more volume lifting. Perlane has larger average size particles than Restylane® and is injected deeper into the skin.
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get 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 particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane® products. Restylane® Silk was the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years of age and older.
Restylane® Refyne is designed with XpresHAn Technology™ to help soften laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). This can help you restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your facial expressions. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane® Refyne is also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling, frowning and even puckering up.
Crafted with XpresHAn Technology™, NEW Restylane® Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Using innovative cross-linking technology, Restylane® Defyne is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is able to help restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance, while helping you maintain your natural expressions.
Restylane® Kysse is a clear injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid (HA) crosslinked with BDDE, an ingredient that helps form a network of HA to provide a gel filler that lasts longer. Restylane® Kysse contains 0.3 % lidocaine to reduce pain during injection. Restylane® Kysse is injected into the lips and the lines around the upper lip to temporarily add fullness to the lips and help smooth the wrinkles around the upper lip (perioral lines).
