What is Restylane Filler?
Restylane filler is a line of hyaluronic acid–based facial fillers that help smooth wrinkles and plump your cheeks and lips. It is known for giving natural-looking results as hyaluronic acid is a natural-occurring substance in our skin. Hyaluronic acid is essential in holding connective tissues and providing moisture. Therefore, it is important to restore depleting Hyaluronic acid as we age.
Restylane filler uses unique NASHA© TECHNOLOGY to give each product a different particle size tailored to your needs for more effective results. Hence, it can be used in various areas including cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, and around your mouth.
However, there are many different types of Restylane filler for different purposes. Therefore this article is a simple guide to help you identify the right one for your specific concerns.
What are the different types of Restylane filler?
Restylane Defyne (deep smile and laugh lines)
As we age, our skin loses elasticity. Our wrinkles and fine lines start to become more pronounced and our chin could recede inwards due to the loss of structure. Therefore, Restylane Defyne is crafted with XpresHAn Technology™ to help with smoothing wrinkles and fine lines along the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It also helps to correct mild-to-moderate chin retrusion that creates imbalance in your facial features. Restylane Defyne is uniquely designed to help your facial expressions. This gives you natural looking results as the fillers will not affect your natural movement.
Restylane Filler Refyne (moderate smile and laugh lines)
Restylane Refyne is similar to Restylane Defyne. However, the main difference between the two Restylane filler is that Restylane Refyne treats mild to moderate lines and wrinkles, while Restylane Defyne is used to treat moderate to severe smile lines. Both fillers are long lasting – up to 12 months. Similarly, Restylane Refyne is also equipped with XpresHAn TechnologyTM that gives you a more natural-looking result, supporting your natural movement when you are smiling, frowning and even puckering up.
Restylane Filler Lyft (cheeks, facial wrinkles and back of hand)
Overtime, when the collagen production in our body starts to deteriorate, our skin loses its structure, causing it to sag and more wrinkles to form. Therefore, Restylane Lyft specifically helps with cheek augmentation, midface contour deficiencies, wrinkles and fine lines on both face and hand. Restylane Lyft is especially useful in restoring volume and youthfulness to your skin. The Injectable hyaluronic acid clings to your skin and the water in the acid helps to correct volume loss. This will smooth out your skin, and make your face look plumper.
Restylane Silk (for lips and the lines around them)
If you are only looking into plumping up your lips, Restylane Silk is the one! Restylane is the first FDA approved product specifically designed for lip augmentation and smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth. This filler is suitable even for younger people above 21 years old who want thicker lips. Restylane SIlk also gives natural looking results by using smaller amounts and smoother hyaluronic acid particles.
