Restylane is a brand of dermal fillers that uses hyaluronic acid to fill the skin and smooth our wrinkles. Instead of stopping muscle contraction, they fill in spaces to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Other popular brands of dermal fillers include RHA, Belotero, Juvederm, Radiesse and Sculptra. The restylane family of products, manufactured by Galderma, has become one of the favorite hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, as the original restylane injection was approved by the FDA in 2003.The gel particles in Restylane Lyft are larger than those in Restylane, allowing for a deeper injection into the skin.
Depending on the anatomical area and depth of wrinkles or volume loss, different types of Restylane fillers from the Restylane product family are used. Green has been injecting Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse and other dermal fillers for more than 25 years, in his private boutique practice in Upper East Side, New York. While proper skin care and avoiding the sun are important for the skin, there are times when skin care is not enough and patients require dermal fillers and neurotoxins, such as Juvederm, Restylane, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, to reverse visible signs of aging. In addition, Restylane can be used to create fuller lips (Restylane L, Restylane Silk and Restylane Kysse are used), and to help shape facial contours (Restylane Lyft) in areas such as the cheeks and chin, and add volume to the hands.
Restylane Kysse is the new restylane filler designed for lip augmentation and for the correction of upper lip lines (perioral lines), also called “smoker's lines”. Restylane products can also be combined with Botox, microneedling, and other facial rejuvenation methods. Outside the United States, Restylane Contour has already been used to treat more than 1.5 million worldwide. Restylane Kysse is the latest lip-enhancing injection in the Restylane family of dermal fillers.
The most common side effects of Restylane fillers are redness, swelling, discomfort, bruising, localized tenderness, lumps. Restylane is FDA approved and completely safe, when performed under the guidance of a qualified and trained, board certified dermatologist, such as Dr. Restylane, it is used to restore lost volume in the middle of the face, treat expression lines, voids under the eyes in the tear canal area, lip enhancement, aged hands, smile lines, lip lines and chin and double chin area. Patients interested in a more complete rejuvenation can combine several Restylane products, such as Silk for the lips and Lyft for the cheeks.
Galderma, the manufacturer of Restylane, has developed a variety of hyaluronic acid injectable products for this specific purpose.
