What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a clear gel made from hyaluronic acid. Your body produces hyaluronic acid to help maintain the structure of your skin. As you age, this production starts to slow, and your skin may start to wrinkle or sag. Restylane® products are used to add volume, support, and smoothness to these areas in place of the hyaluronic acid that your body would produce naturally.
Products in the Restylane® line have been specially designed for different parts of the face and body. Restylane® is typically used on the lips and the lower face, including smile lines or nasolabial folds. Restylane® Silk provides more subtle lip enhancement, while Restylane® Lyft adds definition to your cheeks or the back of your hands. Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are used to combat aggressive laugh lines with surprisingly flexible and natural-looking results.
How Restylane® Works
Restylane® is made from machine-separated particles of hyaluronic acid gel. The size of the particles is determined by the specific part of the body that the injection is intended to treat.
Restylane® is injected beneath the dermal layer, where the gel particles replace the acids that your skin needs to stay taut and healthy. The initial Restylane® injection provides an immediate improvement in fullness. As the gel breaks down over time, the Restylane® also improves your skin's natural healing process, helping you maintain a naturally youthful appearance.
What Can Restylane® Treat?
The Restylane® line of products can solve wrinkles and folds on nearly every part of your face. The original Restylane® is intended for use on the lips and surrounding area. Restylane® Lyft adds volume and definition to areas like the cheeks and the hands. And if your laugh lines are too deep for your liking, Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne can have impressive results.
Because the Restylane® family is so extensive, you should ask your doctor for a specific product recommendation. Many treatment plans involve using two or three different types of Restylane® on various parts of the face to achieve the desired effect.
