Restylane is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to restore facial volume and improve the appearance of deep facial folds and wrinkles. Restylane offers several different products with varying formulas for different areas of the face. Firmer formulas like Restylane Contour and Defyne are best used to augment and enhance the cheekbones or jawline and fill in deep folds. Other products like Restylane Silk and Kysse have a more fluid structure with smaller hyaluronic acid particles. This flexibility allows these products to work well in areas that are constantly moving the lips.

Your Restylane Treatment

To start your treatment, your injector will discuss your cosmetic goals with you to determine the best products for your needs. Most patients do not consider Restylane injections to be painful, but a topical numbing cream can be applied at the start of your treatment to maximize your comfort. The procedure only takes a few minutes.

Who Can Benefit from Restylane?

Men and women who want to restore facial volume and improve the appearance of deep facial wrinkles can benefit from Restylane dermal fillers. Restylane is also a great choice for lip augmentation with lip fillers or non-surgical facial contouring. Different formulas can be used to treat:

  • Restylane Kysse: lips

Results and Recovery

There is minimal recovery and downtime required after Restylane treatment, although you should avoid strenuous exercise and sun exposure for the first few days. Mild swelling and bruising are common but could be worsened by sun exposure. Restylane results can take about 6 weeks to fully develop but these improvements in your skin quality will last 6-18 months, depending on the product used and where it was injected.
