When considering your options for any product, it’s normal to choose the brands you’ve heard about. On the filler market, Restylane® is one big name that you’ve most likely heard of. Restylane® actually isn’t just one filler – it’s a family of hyaluronic acid injectable treatments that are formulated for a variety of uses. It can be overwhelming to figure out which one is best for you, so here’s a quick guide to Restylane® fillers and what they do.
This filler goes by the name Restylane®, but it’s not to be confused with the brand. It’s an all-around filler that can restore lost volume in the skin, fill in tear troughs, and plump up facial wrinkles and folds. Additionally, it can enhance the lips for a naturally balanced look. You can expect results for up to 18 months with this option.
Restylane® Silk is an excellent filler option for all things concerning the mouth. While it can augment the lips for a full, prominent look, it can also smooth lines and folds around the mouth like smoker’s lines or lipstick lines. Since the mouth is a very mobile area of the face, it’s metabolized faster – meaning Restylane® Silk can last 6-9 months.
Restylane® Kysse is the most natural-feeling option for lip augmentation. The formula is extremely malleable and infuses with your natural lip tissue for a silky-smooth feel. For patients who want fuller, more plush lips with less product, Kysse is one of the best options available. It also lasts longer than other lip filler options, with results lasting 10-12 months.
Restylane® Lyft is an effective way to lift the cheeks without surgery. With a deep and stable injection, it can add volume and shape to the cheekbones (and hands) for a more youthful, pronounced profile. With a more viscous formula, it can support natural facial expressions for around 6 months.
As another cheek filler, Restylane® Contour takes a different approach. This option is a much silkier alternative to Lyft because it’s meant to restore midface volume loss under the cheekbones. It can move with your unique facial expressions for a natural, indistinguishable look. Restylane® Contour can last for up to 1 year.
Restylane® Refyne and Defyne
These two options are both excellent ways to correct laugh lines around the mouth as well as overall folds in the midface. However, they have some slight differences – Refyne is best for mild to moderate wrinkles and uses a thinner formula for better flexibility while expressing. On the other hand, Defyne can fill in moderate to severe smile lines with a thicker, more supportive formula.
