Restylane is used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane is also indicated for lip augmentation.

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.
The Restylane family of products is a brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, which includes Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne. Each is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Each Restylane product is designed for a specific purpose.
Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth. It is composed of a gel that is smaller and smoother than other Restylane products, resulting in a softer, more precise result — ideal for restoring and enhancing the lips. Additionally, Silk is administered via ultrafine needle, which is designed for improved accuracy and precision.
Lyft is approved by the FDA to correct volume deficit in the back of the hands, for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies, as well as the treatment of moderate to severe facial folds, such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines). Lyft is the first and only hyaluronic filler approved by the FDA to treat face and hands.Lyft contains 0.3% lidocaine, which is added to reduce the discomfort during treatment.
Depending on where you need it the most, Restylane can be injected in the following areas to solve the problems mentioned:
- Nasolabial folds (laugh lines) running from the nose to mouth – smoothen the deep creases and add volume to them.
- Lips – to plump your kissers up and smooth out verticals lines around them.
- Cheeks – to enhance shape and restore youthfulness.
- Eye area – to fill out and get rid of hollows or depressions under the eyes that make you look old.
It can also be used to even out skin marred by a battle with chickenpox or acne in the past, to smoothen them out and make skin look more even.
