The Restylane family of fillers consists of Restylane®, Restylane® Silk. Each is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that visibly reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds, or adds fullness to your lips (Restylane® or Restylane® Silk). To determine the right filler for you, please schedule a complimentary consultation today.
Restylane and Restylane-L brings results immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. It is commonly used for wrinkles around the following areas: - Nasolabial folds – the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth - Below the nose and above the upper lip - Corners of the mouth - Marionette lines – the area between the corners of your mouth and the jawline Both, Restylane and Restylane-L are formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, which is eventually broken down. The difference between the two is the addition of lidocaine, an anaesthetic, in the Restylane-L formulation for added comfort.
Restylane® Silk is the newest addition to the Restylane® family. It contains smaller, smoother particles than the rest of the Restylane® fillers to provide subtle lip enhancement and smooth lines around the mouth.
