Overview

Restylane injectable wrinkle fillers, including Restylane SILK and Restylane Lyft, treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles as well as improving age-related volume loss in the face. Both SILK and Lyft are FDA-approved hyaluronic acid fillers that create natural results. Restylane SILK is specially formulated to enhance the volume of the lips and correct lines around the mouth. Restylane Lyft is best for adding volume to the cheeks and smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles. At his Houston MedSpa, triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Mentz offers wrinkle treatments and temporary facial volume with the Restylane family of products. Dr. Mentz and his certified nurse injectors determine the best type of dermal filler during the patient’s consultation when they listen to your needs, concerns, and cosmetic goals.

Procedure Technique

Restylane is injected with an ultra-fine needle into the needed areas with or without the addition of a local anesthetic, like lidocaine. A Restylane treatment can usually be performed the same day as the patient’s consultation and generally takes 15-30 minutes. The results of Restylane Lyft usually last 9-12 months, depending on the treatment area. When used regularly, the results of Restylane SILK in the lips usually lasts 3-6 months, while other areas of the face, results can last 6-9 months. After the treatment, patients can resume their normal activities, but they should avoid touching the face for 6-24 hours. Patients should also avoid extreme temperatures and use a cold compress to reduce swelling.

Restylane FAQs

Restylane Lyft?

Formerly known as Perlane-L®, Restylane Lyft is used for cheek augmentation, restoring volume in the midface, and correcting moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. Restylane Lyft is best for “parentheses” or nasolabial lines around the mouth, enhancing the contours of the cheeks, and restoring volume to the midface.

Restylane SILK?

Restylane SILK is specially formulated for lip enhancement and to smooth the lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Restylane SILK uses smaller, smoother particles than the rest of the Restylane family of injectables, which makes it ideal for natural-looking results along more precise lines.

Side Effects?

Some patients may experience mild side effects after their Restylane treatment, including temporary redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness for 7-18 days. Patients should avoid using aspiring, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, St. John’s wort, and vitamin E before and after their treatment to minimize bruising.

Restylane Regimen?

The Restylane Regimen is a treatment plan for correcting moderate to severe lines and wrinkles and keeping the results. After the initial treatment, patients should schedule touch-up treatments every 4-9 months. Eventually, patients will begin to notice that their results last longer, in some cases up to 18 months.
