Deep folds on either side of your nose, thin lips, and sunken cheeks are some of the most common cosmetic concerns patients have today. If your body’s not making the collagen necessary for the volume you need, you can still get it with the help of dermal fillers like Restylane®. At Beau MedSpa in Glendale, California, Aaron Jeng, MD, can customize a dermal filler plan to help you get the look you want. Schedule your consultation online or by phone now.
Restylane is a group of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Restylane products add volume in the areas where you need it, including the cheeks, lips, and facial folds. It’s completely normal to experience some kind of facial volume loss as you age or simply to be unhappy with the volume you have naturally.
Restylane can give you the look you want without surgery or invasive treatments. The original formula Restylane can add volume to cheeks, lips, and nasolabial folds for up to a year. However, there are also special formulas for each area that can last even longer in some cases.
Dr. Jeng performs all Restylane treatments at Beau MedSpa himself after he does a thorough consultation with you. Dr. Jeng discusses all the Restylane dermal fillers with you to help you select the right one.
Restylane Lyft is a flexible formula that can add volume to your cheeks, nasolabial folds, and even the back of your hands. Restylane Lyft lasts for up to 12 months when injected in the mid-face (cheek) area and lasts for around six months in the nasolabial folds or in the hands.
Restylane Silk is the smoothest and thinnest of all the Restylane formulas, and it’s specially formulated for use in the lips. The smoother formula allows for precise lip contouring and gives the most natural-looking results.
While Restylane Silk does add lip volume, it’s more subtle than the plumping results you get with original formula Restylane. Therefore, if you don’t need contouring but do need significant lip volume, original Restylane might be right for you. Restylane Silk lasts for about six months or longer.
Restylane Refyne and Defyne are both formulated especially for the nasolabial folds and the marionette (lip-to-chin) lines. Refyne is the lighter of the two formulas, and it’s best at adding volume while retaining flexibility.
Defyne is heavier and can add more volume, but it’s formulated to function just like your own natural hyaluronic acid does. This allows for the most natural movement while still giving major volume correction. Both formulas last up to a year.
Both are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, and they have a similar range of products. However, some small differences, like the way they work or the way they feel, might lead you to one or the other. Dr. Jeng will review all the choices to help you find the right dermal filler for you.
