Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid filler made by Medicis Aesthetics, a specialty pharmaceutical company focusing primarily on aesthetic medicine. They also make Perlane®, a very similar filler to Restylane® with larger gel particles and meant to be injected deeper within the skin. They both add volume to your skin.
Restylane® Injectable Procedure
When visiting The Langsdon Clinic for your Restylane® treatment there is no need for a skin test since there is no risk of an allergic reaction. Our provider will select one or more injection sites and apply a topical anesthetic while determining how much Restylane® will be used.
Ice may be used at the injection site for added an added numbing effect before an ultra-fine needle is used to inject the filler into your skin.
Restylane® Refyne integrates with your skin to help smooth out the lines that run alongside the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). It offers flexibility you need for natural looking movement and expressions. Restylane® Refyne is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler made with XpresHAn Technology™ that helps correct these lines for a more natural look.
Restylane® Defyne is designed to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid to help smooth out deeper lines around your mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) while letting you look more natural through a range of facial expressions.
Restylane® Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Through non-surgical injections, Restylane® Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and mid-face area which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane® Silk helps improve, thinning lips, lost shape and vertical lines along the upper lip. Like other areas of the face, the mouth area can show signs of aging. Restylane® Silk uses a smaller, smoother HA particle than other Restylane® products.

How Long Does Restylane® Last?
The results achieved from getting Restylane® injectable are almost immediately apparent. That said, the hyaluronic acid in Restylane® injectable is absorbed by the body over time. The results of Restylane® can last up to 12 months.
However, in most cases the results from Restylane® injectable last closer to 6 months. When the results are no longer noticeable you can return for an additional treatment.
Recovery after Restylane® Treatment
You’ll see some swelling that will last at least 2-3 days but you’ll be able to resume your normal routine/activities immediately. Avoiding direct sunlight is advised.
