Restylane® encompasses many products that revive the skin and correct signs of aging by supplying the skin with hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance in the skin that absorbs water molecules and provides water cushions in the skin to plump and contour the face. When hyaluronic acid replete, the water cushions disappear, causing the skin to look deflated, sagged, and wrinkled. Depending on your needs and desired outcome, Dr. Michael J. Messina may recommend Restylane, Silk, Lyft, Refyne, Defyne, or any combination of these.
Restylane® contains the largest HA particles to correct deep lines in the lower face and hollows of the eyes for as much as 9 to 12 months.
Restylane Silk® is the smoothest substance, containing fine particles of HA. It is often used to fill fine lines, such as those that develop around the mouth, and plump the lips. It can last up to 6 to 9 months.
Restylane Lyft® is the stiffest Restylane product, designed to lift sagging jowls and cheeks. Results can last as much as 24 months, longer than any other Restylane product.
Restylane Refyne® & Restylane Defyne®
The newest Restylane products, Refyne and Defyne, use XpresHAn technology to create very flexible gels that provide very natural-looking results for up to 12 months.
Over time, Restylane is absorbed into the body. We invite you to learn more about Restylane in Palm Desert, California, by contacting Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Specialists at 760-773-6616 and scheduling a meeting with our board-certified dermatologist.
