What is Restylane®?
For natural-looking, long-lasting results, men and women worldwide trust the Restylane® family of fillers. Comprised of a solution of hyaluronic acid, these fillers provide immediate lifting and smoothing and are specially designed to target a wide range of visible signs of aging. Restylane®’s original solution can correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as those that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth, also known as nasolabial folds. This dermal filler can also be used to subtly enhance thinning lips in patients who are 21 years and older.
What is Restylane® Silk?
The first and only FDA-approved injectable designed for lip enhancement, Restylane® Silk is one of the most popular dermal fillers on the market today. Unlike many other dermal fillers, this product uses small, smooth particles to ensure that corrections are precise and natural-looking. Restylane® Silk is administered through an ultra-fine needle to further improve injection accuracy. The small particle size of this injectable also makes it well-suited to correct fine lines near and around the mouth.
Treatment takes less than an hour to complete and features little to no downtime. While side effects like swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness are possible, these usually subside within a week of receiving treatment. The results of a single injection session can last up to six months.
What is Restylane® Lyft?
Many of the wrinkles and fine lines that come with age can be attributed to facial volume lost over time. By adding extra volume to the cheek area, many of these other signs of aging also correct themselves. Restylane® Lyft is an easy way to add volume to this area without surgery or downtime.
Restylane® Lyft is one of the only injectables on the market today that is FDA-approved for cheek augmentation. It is also one of the most successful dermal fillers of its kind, giving 73% of patients beautiful results 12 months after treatment. While a year is the average amount of time the results of an injection session last, some patients have reported results that persist through 18 months.
Each injection session takes less than an hour to complete and typically features no downtime. While side effects like bruising, redness, pain, headache, tenderness, and itching are possible, these usually resolve themselves within a few days of treatment.
