Over time, Restylane® has slowly become one of the most popular and most highly effective injectable dermal fillers around today! A favorite amongst patients for its ability to treat and care for a variety of skincare concerns, and problems, with little to no side effects and a look that is known to be fairly natural in its appearance.
Restylane® is a Hyaluronic Acid-based filler, like others including Juvéderm. This allows Restylane® an added level of versatility and effectiveness, as HA is a naturally occurring compound, created by the human body.
The Restylane® Family
Restylane® includes a number of different formulations, each offering patients a specific level of correction. And often, for different areas of the face or body. As with other HA fillers, their main use is to add volume and fullness beneath the skin, alleviating the common effects of aging – including the correction of facial volume loss and moderate to severe facial wrinkles.

Restylane®, like its close cousin within the world of dermal fillers, Juvéderm, has also been proven to be quite an effective lip filler treatment. And allows those who would like to add extra volume and definition to their natural lips, the perfect, naturally appearing option. Interestingly enough, Restylane® and Restylane® Silk are FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21 and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.
What Does it Treat?
The main treatment areas for Restylane® include:
- Cheeks & Midface
- Under-Eye Area or Tear Troughs
- Crow’s Feet
- Nose & Mouth Area
How Does Restylane® Work?
Similar to Juvéderm, Restylane® uses a Hyaluronic Acid base. HA is a naturally occurring compound produced by the body to regulate moisture levels within the skin and provide a soft, supple feel and volume. This allows Restylane® to not only function better, but it gives it a far less chance of being “rejected” by the body. No matter what your issue or where the treatment area, Restylane® is able to fill the empty space in our skin which causes wrinkles, and adds much-needed volume and fullness – in addition to added hydration.
