Restylane is a brand of dermal fillers that uses hyaluronic acid to fill the skin and smooth out wrinkles. Unlike other treatments, such as Botox, Restylane does not stop muscle contraction, but instead fills in spaces to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Other popular brands of dermal fillers include RHA, Belotero, Juvederm, Radiesse and Sculptra. Dr.
Green often layers or combines Restylane products with other injectable and dermal fillers during the same visit, for the most youthful appearance. Restylane is an injectable, non-surgical facial dermal filler that has been designed not only to “fill in the lines and wrinkles of the face”, but also to add moisture to the skin. Restylane Lyft has the highest G-prime of all hyaluronic acid fillers and is able to restore and replenish lost volume, leaving your hands rejuvenated and looking younger. It is the thickest injectable filler in the Restylane family of products and lasts 9 to 12 months, depending on how quickly the body metabolizes the injectable product.
By injecting Restylane SkinBoosters, three treatment sessions lasting 4 weeks, microinjections stimulate skin fibroblasts, increase skin cell renewal and provide a youthful and revitalized skin appearance. The original Restylane dermal filler was mainly used to correct nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth. The gel particles in Restylane Lyft are larger than those in Restylane, allowing for a deeper injection into the skin. The Restylane product family is made up of several different products and uses the unique NASHA technology, which gives each product its own unique particle size.
Restylane and Juvederm are dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid that can be used in similar anatomical locations on the face. Regardless of which Restylane product a patient chooses, they can resume most of their normal activities right away. Silk contains the same ingredients as Restylane-L, but is specially formulated to last a long time on the lips. Restylane produces an extremely natural look and, through panfacial rejuvenation or a “liquid facelift”, can restore volume and rejuvenate the entire face.
In addition, Restylane is FDA-approved for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds (smile lines). Patients interested in a more complete rejuvenation can combine several Restylane products, such as Silk for the lips and Lyft for the cheeks.
