What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a family of hyaluronic acid fillers that we recommend for lost facial volume, lines, and wrinkles. The FDA-approved filler increases hydration for greater skin support and minimizes the effects of lost collagen in your face.
Adding volume with Restylane® injections provides you with long-lasting, natural-looking, gradual improvements.
Types of Restylane® Fillers
Restylane® fillers help with common signs of aging, and we also recommend the products to younger patients who want to enhance their natural features.
Kysse is a Restylane® lip filler that adds volume while maintaining a soft, supple appearance and natural movement. In addition to lip enhancement, Kysse also helps to reduce fine lines around your mouth. Results last up to 12 months.
Lyft is a unique hyaluronic filler that is designed to add volume to your cheeks. We also recommend the product for correcting signs of aging on your hands, such as visible blood vessels and thin skin.
Contour is designed with proprietary XpresHAn Technology to add fullness and contours to your cheeks and mid-face area.

Restylane® vs. Juvéderm®
Restylane® and Juvéderm® are made with hyaluronic acid. Juvéderm® is made with smaller particles of HA, so it may be a better option for fine lines.
Voluma® vs. Restylane® Lyft
The primary difference between Voluma® and Restylane® Lyft is how long the results last. Voluma® lasts up to 24 months, and Lyft lasts up to 18 months.
Restylane® vs. Radiesse®
Restylane® relies on hyaluronic acid to soften wrinkles, and Radiesse® relies on collagen. Restylane® results last up to 18 months, and Radiesse® results last two years or longer.
Restylane® injections require no downtime or special aftercare. You may notice some pinpoint bleeding and localized swelling, tenderness, and bruising at each injection site. These symptoms typically last less than 72 hours. Restylane® Kysse swelling may make your lips feel tight. You can gently apply a cold compress to manage any swelling and discomfort.
