Restylane Washington DC

Many patients seek Restylane injections to smooth wrinkles and lines, restore volume loss, and augment and contour facial features without surgery, incisions, or downtime.

These dermal fillers offer busy women and men immediate plumping and can be completed in a 30-minute appointment.

Plus, the Restylane family of fillers, manufactured by Galderma, are all comprised of a bioactive ingredient that interacts with living tissue for natural results.

Here’s everything you need to know about Restylane cosmetic injections.

What Is Restylane?

Restylane is a leading dermal filler that is made of hyaluronic acid and is used for the temporary correction of smile lines, nasolabial folds, sagging cheeks, facial asymmetry, deflated or naturally thin lips, fine lines around the mouth, and rejuvenation of hands.

Hyaluronic acid found in Restylane products closely resembles that which is naturally produced by the body and provides plumping and hydrating effects.

Therefore, it’s an extremely safe and effective way to address age-related volume loss, hollowness, and skin laxity.

What Are the Different Restylane Products?

A skilled and experienced injector can create a customized treatment plan for your Restylane injections and recommend which products will best meet your needs and goals.

The Restylane family includes Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne.

Restylane Lyft is made of larger hyaluronic acid particles to instantly replenish mid-face fullness and lift sagging cheeks. It was recently approved by the FDA for age-related volume loss in the back of the hands and is the first and only filler indicated for use on an area other than the face.

For subtle enhancement of lips and smoothing of vertical lines around the mouth, many providers recommend Restylane Silk.  It’s made of very fine hyaluronic acid molecules and offers very natural results.

Restylane Refyne and Defyne are manufactured with a patented XpresHAn Technology and contain a flexible hyaluronic acid gel. Refyne is best suited for mild to moderate facial lines, and Defyne can target and fill moderate to severe folds, such as nasolabial and marionette lines.

How Long Do Restylane Results Last?

Patients can see immediate improvement following Restylane injections, and may resume all normal activities post-procedure.

The duration of effects can vary based on the product used. Typically, you can see lasting results for up to 18 months with Restylane, up to six-to-12 months with Restylane Lyft, up to six months with Restylane Silk, and up to 12 months with Restylane Refyne and Defyne.
