Restylane Filler

Why Restylane?

restylane before after imageRestylane® is a cosmetic dermal filler that corrects moderate to severe facial folds or wrinkles. It is a clear gel that contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body.


Chemically modified hyaluronic acid formulations currently available in the United States include the hyaluronic acid Restylane, Restylane Fine Line, Restylane Perlane, and Restylane SubQ.


Hyaluronic acid was first introduced as a cure in the 1970s. Nowadays, it is often used in medicine, including for the treatment of cataracts, inflammation, wound healing, and anti-aging dermal filler.

Hyaluronic acid is also the base product for the fillers Juvederm and Belotero. Because it is a naturally occurring substance in the body, it is tolerated by all patients. 


Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that occurs in the body and fills the skin. A Restylane injection, like this natural hyaluronic acid, works in the body to replenish wrinkles and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 


Restylane does not require any allergy or skin test prior to injection. Restylane is also indicated for submucosal implantation for lip augmentation in patients over 21 years of age. Restylane is formulated as a clear gel and uses a dual mechanism of action to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and wrinkles. 


What is Restylane filler?

Restylane treatment areas imageRefyne and Defyne are the latest additions to the Restylane product family of Galderma. They are specially formulated skin fillers containing hyaluronic acid, which are specially formulated to correct laugh lines for a more natural and youthful face. 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 laugh lines. 


Both Restylane and Juvederm are used to improve the appearance of the skin by filling in wrinkles. You can decide which one is best for your needs by learning more about each of these treatments. You should be aware that both treatments use hyaluronic acid fillers to achieve the desired results. 


The FDA has approved both Restylane and Juvederm and the cost of each treatment is approximately identical. 


The texture is where these two fillers really start to differ from each other. Juvederm is less likely to leave bumps than Restylane during the application process. In contrast, Restylane is more cohesive than smooth, making it perfect for under-the-eye or other areas where you want to have a fuller effect. 


Injectable dermal fillers are different from Botox® injections but offer even more ways to improve and rejuvenate your facial appearance. Not only can many of our treatments fill lines and wrinkles on the face, including deep wrinkles and nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth), it also gives your cheeks more volume and even camouflages the cheeks.
