Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.

Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).

Restylane Silk

Restylane Silk® for Lips and Fine Lines

You’re getting a little older – your lips are thinning and flattening out. Those little vertical lines that used to only show up when you pursed your lips are now there ALL the time. What’s a gal to do?

Loss of lip volume is inevitable. The little lines that come along with thinning lips generally are unavoidable too, and the deeper they become, the more difficult they are to deal with.

Fillers – Thick vs Thin. How is this filler different from others?

Most fillers are too “thick” to place in the lines around the mouth and those that are liquid enough to not cause bumps seem to go away very quickly or don’t provide adequate lift. Restylane Silk has solved that problem. Restylane Silk will:

  • Add natural plumpness to thin and delicate lips with excellent integration into the tissue
  • Smooth fine lines that radiate around the lip
  • Add the “lift” that other fine line fillers have been less successful in doing
  • Last up to 6 months (backed by clinical study

I’ve used regular Restylane before for my lips and it worked great. Why would I want Silk instead?

Many people with lips that have adequate skin thickness can use Restylane or Perlane or Juvederm or Belotero. Where Restylane Silk really shines is with the patient who has delicately thin lip tissue and thinner skin. Absolutely, though, the tiny squiggly lines around any lips will be best treated with Restylane Silk.

If you’ve tried other fillers for your thinning lips or not been satisfied with the outcomes from thicker fillers, then Restylane Silk is an excellent option.


I’m still young, but my lips are thin and always have been. Can I use Restylane Silk?

Bear in mind that lack of volume in the lips may be a genetic trait and you don’t have to be older to need volume. Restylane Silk is an option for any patient 21 or older. Your practitioner will help you decide which gel formulation will work the best for you.

How is Restylane Silk injected?

We use a needle to place the product where it’s needed near the surface of the skin. Injections into the lip body and border can generally be placed with a smooth tip Microcannula. Restylane Silk does contain lidocaine to make the injections more comfortable.

Restylane Lyft

Restylane® Lyft for moderate to severe facial folds and mid face volume replacement

Restylane® Lyft, initially approved by the FDA in Spring of 2007 under the name Perlane, is a “mid-dermal” hyaluronic acid filler product. As a sister product to Restylane, Lyft is designed for more pronounced facial folds and cheek and mid face volume restoration.

The firm gel is injected into the deep dermis to add volume to help restore surface contour to approximate a younger-aged appearance. Restylane Lyft corrections maintain volume augmentation for about six to nine months before natural product degradation begins to lessen the effect.


How is Restylane Lyft different from Restylane?

Both Restylane Lyft and Restylane are composed of hyaluronic acid. The primary difference between Restylane and Lyft is that the hyaluronic acid gel particles in Lyft are larger than those found in Restylane. This gives the filler additional ability to lift and fill the areas of injection that require a denser formulation to hold shape. Lyft and Restylane are perfect complements to one another.

How does Restylane Lyft work?

Restylane Lyft® is an injectable gel designed to lift folds and replace lost facial volume from fat loss, bone loss and collagen degradation. Lyft’s water-loving nature attracts and binds water molecules to help maintain volume.

Restylane Lyft is composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. The hyaluronic acid in fillers is a crystal clear gel that is chemicaly cross-linked (the long chemical strands are tied together) to delay breakdown by skin enzymes. All Restylane products are non-animal-based and free from animal protein. This quality prevents disease transmission. Allergy pre-testing is not necessary. Also distinct from other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Restylane products are minimally cross-linked, making them similar to the natural hyaluronic acid found in the body.

Restylane Refyne and Defyne

Refyne and Defyne are the newest additions to the Restylane family of products from Galderma. The main difference between the two is that Restylane Refyne treats mild to moderate lines and wrinkles, while Restylane Defyne is used to treat moderate to severe smile lines. Both fillers are long lasting – up to 12 months and are Crafted with XpresHAn Technology, which allows for a more natural look and flexes well with your natural lines and curves of the face. Both fillers can be used separately or in conjunction together for a stack effect.
