Restylane is a type of facial injection that is designed to treat a number of facial cosmetic problems, including wrinkles and folds. The Restylane family of products includes several variations to help treat various cosmetic concerns. Primary targets of Restylane include lines and wrinkles as well subtle lip and cheek enhancements, and even reversing the signs of volume loss in the backs of the hands. 

Restylane Options

The Restylane product line is created with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that gives skin volume and moisture. There are a few variations that include: 

Restylane Lyft - this product is created with a thicker gel and is used to alleviate severe folds and wrinkles. By adding volume to the skin, it can assist with improving sunken or hollow-looking areas of the face. This product can also be used on the backs of the hands to help hide the standard sides of aging.

Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne - these products were created to ensure that your face retains its natural movement while softening lines and creases around the mouth. Formulated using advanced technology, you’ll still be able to smile and laugh while turning the clock back on aging. 

Restylane - this can be used to add volume and fullness to areas of the face that may have grown more sunken or hollow due to aging. For patients over 21, it can also be used to add volume to the lips for a more improved pout and fullness. 

Am I a Candidate for Restylane?

Ideal candidates for Restylane should be over 21, seeking an increase in facial volume, or looking to smooth lines and wrinkles. Patients should be free from skin infections, in good general health, and not pregnant or breastfeeding. During your consultation, Dr. Arroyo will determine if you are a good candidate for Restylane treatment.
