Restylane®® is a dermal filler collection developed to smooth deep lines and add volume to areas prone to age-related volume loss, including the cheeks, lips, and hands. Restylane® injectables are made with hyaluronic acid, a gel-based substance your body also produces naturally.

Treatment Areas

Each Restylane® product is used to achieve different goals. Injections take just minutes to complete and restore your vibrant, youthful glow nearly immediately. While treatments are minimally invasive and require no downtime, you should wait at least one day before exercising or engaging in other strenuous activities. Here are a few areas where each Restylane® injectable performs best:

Restylane Refyne®

Any areas of the face prone to fine lines and wrinkles
Glabellar lines (“the 11s”)

Restylane Defyne®

Nasolabial folds (around the nose and mouth)
Forehead folds
Glabellar lines (“the 11s”)

Restylane Kysse®

Lip augmentation

Restylane Silk®

Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth
Lip augmentation

Restylane Lyft®

Sagging along the jawline (“the jowls”)
Frown lines
Forehead folds
Nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth
Wrinkles around your mouth
Hollow cheeks and temples
Sagging around the eye area
Thinning skin on hands

Other Treatment Options

Restylane® is just one brand of hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Here’s how this line stacks up to other popular products:


Juvederm is a smooth gel-like formula that is best suited for fine lines and wrinkles and offers natural-looking results.


Revanesse uses smaller spherical particles in its fillers and has been shown to produce less swelling and longer lasting results.

The Beauty Benefits of Restylane®

Restylane® injections help improve the look and feel of skin by restoring the suppleness, elasticity, and volume we often lose with age. The hyaluronic acid-based formula mimics your body’s tissue, leaving you with radiant, natural-looking results. You’re free to go about most normal activities after your treatment and may begin to see results immediately — though it can take a few days for any swelling to subside. Your fresh, revitalized appearance should last at least 12 months.

Is Restylane® Right for Me?

Restylane® is FDA-approved for adults over 21 years of age. As with all dermal injection products, you should avoid Restylane® if you are allergic to any of its ingredients or have an infection in or around the treatment area. Additionally, Restylane® may not be safe for people with certain conditions or those on medications that increase the risk of bleeding.

Some patients have reported redness, swelling, pain or tenderness, itching, bruising, lumps and bumps, or discoloration around the injection site. These side effects are usually minimal and resolve within two weeks.

How much Restylane® will I need?
The number of injections you need depends on your unique goals and the area you wish to target. Our expert injectors will create a custom plan during your appointment.
Will results look natural?
Restylane® treatments can be tailored specifically to the look and goal you wish to achieve. So long as it’s injected by a highly trained professional, results will look natural and as subtle as you prefer.
Will Restylane® hurt?
Beyond the quick pinch of each injection, most patients report little discomfort. However, if you’d like, we are happy to apply a topical numbing agent to further reduce any potential pain.
Should I do anything to prepare for Restylane®?
We recommend you avoid aspirin and NSAIDs (Ibuprofen and Naproxen, for example) for five days before treatment. Stop using supplements containing vitamins A and E, fish oil, Ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba, and Saint John’s Wort for seven days prior to your appointment. Additionally, do not use retinol, Tretinoin, or glycolic acid for two days before your treatment. As with any injection, we ask that you avoid alcohol for 48 hours before your appointment.
