What It Is
Restylane is the name of a range of FDA-approved injectables designed to minimize wrinkles and lines while adding subtle, youth-enhancing lift. Restylane injectables are classified as dermal fillers, meaning they contain hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. HA is renowned for immediately correctly age-related concerns while invigorating collagen production for long-term results.
The Restylane family includes:
- Restylane Silk: This anti-aging injectable gently enhances the lip’s volume while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and smoker’s lines around the mouth. Results can last anywhere from six months to one year.
- Restylane Lyft: This dermal filler provides an immediate lift to the cheeks and mid-facial region for a more youthful appearance. It can also be used to treat deep nasolabial folds. Results can last for up to two years.
- Restylane Defyne: This unique and innovative filler uses a patented formula to fill in moderate to severe nasolabial folds, all while maintaining the mouth’s natural movements. Results can last for six months.
- Restylane Refyne: This filler uses an innovative formula to lessen the appearance of laugh lines around the mouth, without sacrificing the mouth’s natural appearance and movements. Results can last for six months.

How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane injectables contain hyaluronic acid (HA) in different amounts, which is based on the treatment area. In most cases, the HA gel is thick enough to provide immediate lift; with lip injections, the HA gel is more viscous, which provides lift without creating stiff, unnatural results.
HA can also invigorate collagen production for long-term benefits, like younger, smoother-looking skin. Additionally, HA is renowned for retaining water molecules, so your skin will look plumper and more hydrated after just a single treatment.
Is Restylane Painful?
Restylane’s anti-aging HA gel is injected via a fine-tip needle into the desired treatment area. The procedure can be uncomfortable for patients who may not like needles. To help with any discomfort, your Ageless Beauty expert will numb the treatment area right before the procedure.
What Is The Recovery Time?
There’s no recovery or downtime with Restylane treatments; you can return right to your normal routine once you’ve finished. You might see slight redness, bruising, and itching at the injection site – this is completely normal and disappears after a few days. Your results will last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the product used.
