If you have noticeable signs of aging – ranging from facial lines and wrinkles to sagging skin and thinning lips – the Restylane line of dermal fillers is an excellent and effective way to rejuvenate your appearance and restore your youthfulness!
As we age, our body’s production of hyaluronic acid (HA) is reduced. This naturally-hydrating substance is what gives our skin its natural suppleness, firmness, and youthfulness. As we lose this substance, the skin can begin to sag, develop wrinkles, lose fullness, and even look unhealthy.
Restylane has been used for over 20 years by tens of millions of people with an amazing safety record. It is made with a specially-formulated version of HA that has an amazing effect on your skin – not only does it fill in lines, wrinkles, and hollow areas, it also works with your body’s natural HA production to provide a more natural, younger-looking appearance. When combined with other injectables, Restylane can even be used for a liquid facelift, a non-surgical procedure that eliminates wrinkles and revitalizes your appearance!
Restylane is designed to correct:
- Nasolabial folds (laugh lines)
- Marionette lines around the mouth and chin
- Thinning lips
- Lips lines and lost lip border definition
- Cheek volume
- Under eye circles
- Hollow temples
When fine lines develop around the mouth and lips, in addition to an aged appearance, they can cause a loss in shape and fullness. Restylane Silk that is specially formulated for fine lines, is a member of the Restylane family that produces rejuvenating and revitalizing results to your appearance.
The secret to Restylane Silk is that it’s formulated with smaller particles, which helps deliver results that look natural, such as:
- Improved uplift and contour to the corners of the mouth
- Precise, eye-catching definition to the center of the upper lip, known as the cupid’s bow
- Restored symmetry and detail to the mouth and lips
- Enhanced shapeliness and volume to both the upper and lower lip
- Smoothing out fine lines around the mouth, eyes, and cheeks
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne
Considered state-of-the-art hyaluronic acid facial fillers, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are both formulated with XpresHAn, an innovative technology that gives both gels more softness and flexibility than other hyaluronic acid fillers. This helps eliminate that stiff or “artificial” look when you smile, laugh, or make other expressions.
Areas treated with Restylane Refyne or Restylane Defyne not only look normal to those around you, but also feel natural. Although both Refyne and Defyne are FDA-approved specifically to reduce laugh lines, there are differences between them that make them unique.
Restylane Refyne is more flexible, designed specifically to correct moderate to severe nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Its enhanced pliability offers patients effects that are softer and less dramatic than other injectable treatment options.
The firmer Restylane Defyne is also intended for moderate to severe laugh lines, but it is placed deeper for extra support and firmness to your skin’s underlying structure.
A combination treatment of the two can enhance the effects; in fact, both Restylane Defyne and Refyne and Silk can be administered during the same treatment session by the injectable specialists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology.
Restylane Lyft (previously called Perlane) is the first FDA-approved filler designed to augment hollow cheeks and hands that have lost their fullness and shape.
The larger particles in the Restylane Lyft formula can also help correct moderate to severe nasolabial folds and other facial creases and wrinkles.

What to Expect
At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, our physicians are expert Restylane injectors. In fact, we’re one of the few cosmetic practices in San Diego where doctors actually perform injections themselves (rather than having a nurse practitioner or medical assistant perform them). Our extensive training and highly-refined techniques help minimize pain and discomfort. Some of our senior physicians have been using the Restylane line of products for nearly 20 years.
If you’re nervous about the procedure, you’ll be happy to know that a numbing agent is already mixed into Restylane. Depending on the severity of your anxiety, we can also offer laughing gas (PRO-NOX™) for ultimate comfort.
Following a Restylane treatment, you can expect to have smoother skin, fewer facial lines, and added volume for a healthy, youthful appearance! Downtime is non-existent, which means that you can return to your normal daily activities immediately. Results can up to 18 months, after which we recommend additional touch-ups from one of our expert injectors.
Potential side effects are typically mild and can include bruising, swelling, itching, redness, and tenderness. However, these side effects are temporary and should disappear within a few days after your treatment. If for any reason you don’t like your results, Restylane (and other HA-based fillers) can be easily reversed with hyaluronidase. If bruising occurs it can be minimized with complimentary laser treatment.
