Restylane® is a group of different formulations of hyaluronic acid. Restylane® is the standard formulation and similar in efficacy and indications to Juvéderm® XC and Juvéderm® Ultra XC. Restylane® Lyft is similar to Juvéderm® Voluma®XC. Restylane® Silk is a low viscosity product used for fine lines. Restylane is used to treat intermediate and deep facial lines and contour irregularities, such as smile lines and marionette lines. Restylane Lyft is mainly for enhancement of skeletal deficiencies in the cheek, temporal, chin and jaw line areas.
Restylane is used to plump lips and accentuate the edge of the lip. Restylane is helpful in correcting infra-orbital hollows or dark circles under the eyes. Restylane Silk is especially helpful for the correction of fine lines around the mouth and in the surrounding facial skin, e.g. cheeks and crow’s feet area.
All hyaluronic acid fillers can be injected with a blunt cannula that reduces the risk of bruising and intra-vascular injection. Blunt cannulas are usually less painful when used for injection and are more versatile in allowing injection of multiple areas from a single access site.
