What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is the name of a group of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, the first of which to be FDA-approved. Restylane® fillers are used for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and for plumping up lips. Restylane® products can be used to treat a wide range of skin-related complaints and concerns, including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Lines on the upper lip
- Thinning lips
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Lost volume around the midface
Restylane® injections can be performed with complementary treatments like Botox®, which treats dynamic wrinkles like crow’s feet and frown lines.

What Are the Different Restylane® Products Available?
Restylane® offers a line of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, each with varying thicknesses and particle sizes to treat specific areas. For smoothing out any larger folds, Restylane® products that feature medium-sized particles are the best. Alternatively, if you’re looking to treat finer lines, Restylane® products with smaller particles will best equipped to do the job.
This is the finest formulation of Restylane®, and it’s best suited for the treatment of finer lines and wrinkles and for adding delicate contours. It is also commonly used for treating any perioral lines around the lips and for lip augmentation.
If you’re looking to achieve a lifting effect around the midface area, then Restylane Lyft is the one for you. Restylane® Lyft can’t provide the same dramatic results as a facelift; however, it can restore lost contours around the cheeks and smooth out nasolabial folds.
With the use of XpresHAn technology that is able to shift as the face moves, Restylane® Defyne can fill in any moderate, deep, or severe nasolabial fold and restore your face’s lost volume. This is all due to its more flexible hyaluronic gel which is made with a tighter composition that helps your face to retain its shape. This is one of the latest Restylane® products to become available.
Restylane® Refyne also uses XpresHAn tech, and, just like Restylane® Defyne, it too is one of the latest Restylane products to become available. Essentially, Restylane® Refyne is a more precise version of Restylane® Define. Where Restylane® Defyne is used to treat more deep and severe folds, Restylane® Refyne is used to treat shallower ones that Restylane Defyne wouldn’t be able to treat.
How Are Restylane® Injections Performed?
The entire Restylane® injection procedure is a quick and straightforward one and should take no more than 30 minutes at most to complete. Your Restylane® specialist will use a tiny needle to inject the filler just beneath the skin, or along the lips, with a mix of Restylane® and lidocaine, a local anesthetic. The entire procedure is pain-free and you’ll be free to return to your daily activities immediately.
How Long Will Restylane® Results Last?
On average, results from Restylane® treatments should last for around six to nine months. Restylane® Defyne and Refyne, however, can last for as long as 12 months. Maintenance treatments are recommended in order to maintain optimal results as over time, the Restylane® results will wear off.
