In the world of injectable dermal fillers, Restylane has emerged as one of the top choices for treating moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It can smoothen out nasolabial and marionette lines around the mouth and even plump up the lips.

In fact, Restylane is a collection of three different injectable dermal fillers. They have all been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, and are considered safe and effective cosmetic products that produces impressive results that last for up to a year, or longer.

How Restylane Is Used for Correcting Fine Lines and Wrinkles

The original dermal filler, Restylane, is produced from a biodegradable NASHA or non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid. This is a natural substance present in all living organisms and is associated with providing fullness and volume to the skin.

Restylane is generated through a process of fermentation in the laboratory, as a gel of hyaluronic acid extracted from bacteria called Streptococcus. The cautious production of Restylane within the sterile environs of the laboratory minimizes the induction of any possible allergens or transmitted diseases among the patients who take the treatment.

Formulated as a transparent gel, Restylane is injected beneath the skin surface of the target area using sterilized syringes. Once it has penetrated into the dermal tissue layer, Restylane gets integrated within the cells and attracts and holds surrounding water molecules to enhance the volume of the skin and lend it a more full and hydrated look.

Since Restylane resembles your body’s own hyaluronic acid, it is gradually broken down through the body’s natural processes and dissolved completely without leaving any residue behind.

What is Restylane Silk used for?

Silk is a thinner version of the original Restylane, and is primarily used to treat lip lines and for lip augmentation.

To put it in simple terms, Silk was developed to achieve naturally silky, smooth, and luscious lips. Since it is designed to treat the sensitive region inside and around the lips, Silk makes use of smoother and smaller gel particles as compared to the other Restylane products for achieving natural-looking results.

What is Restylane Lyft used for?

Recently approved by the US FDA, the Lyft is a thicker version of the original Restylane product that is used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds around the mid face. It can also be used for the purpose of cheek augmentation for more defined and contoured cheeks.

Some of the immediate side effects of aging are sagging and sunken cheeks that have lost their youthful volume. Restylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is known to provide excellent results by providing a natural lift to the cheeks and fixing the smile lines or nasolabial folds.

Since all Restylane products incorporate high quality, non-invasive techniques for correcting the visible signs of aging, the procedure requires negligible downtime and allows you to return to your normal day-to-day activities soon after the treatment.
