The Restylane Family of Dermal Fillers
At Johns Creek Dermatology, Shereen Timani, M.D. offers less-invasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery using dermal fillers. One of the most widely used injectable fillers is the Restylane family of products, which are safe, natural, and made of hyaluronic acid. These products restore fullness to the skin:
- Moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds, the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth
- Marionette lines, the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline
- The area above the mouth to the base of the nose
- Fill fine lines and dark circles
How Does it Work?
Restylane® is specifically formulated as a clear hyaluronic acid gel formulation which acts like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, and eventually, it breaks down naturally. Dr. Timani injects Restylane using a fine needle under the skin, where it works immediately by adding volume to smooth wrinkles. As with other injectable fillers, you might experience swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness after treatment. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Younger patients may experience more swelling side-effects, while bruising may be more likely in more mature patients.
Restylane® and Restylane® Silk
Restylane® Silk and Restylane® are dermal fillers suitable for plumping lips and softening vertical lines around the mouth, uniquely formulated to create fullness and definition in lips with natural-looking results. Fillers are injected into the middle to deep dermis layer of the skin in order to fill superficial lines, providing natural-looking results with just one treatment. Results last about six months and do not require any skin testing, unlike collagen-based products.
Restylane® Refyne is designed to help correct moderate laugh lines and creases for a more natural look. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane® Refyne is also designed to help support your natural expression-for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling, frowning and even puckering up.
Restylane® Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines, nasolabial folds and marionette lines which can make you look and feel older than you are. Using innovative cross-linking technology, this mid to deeply injected filler restores a youthful, yet natural-looking appearance, while helping you maintain facial flexibility for natural expressions.
