What Are the Restylane Products and What Areas of Face & Body
Do They Treat?

Restylane-Lyft

Restylane Lyft is a specifically formulated Restylane dermal filler designed to correct deep facial wrinkles. Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine, formerly known as Perlane-L, is a clear injectable soft-tissue dermal filler that is FDA-approved to improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds in adults 21 and older and also to help improve the appearance of aging hands with moderate-to-severe volume loss. Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine consists of hyaluronic acid (HA) and lidocaine which helps improve any possible discomfort. HA is a natural substance found in your skin that provides volume and fullness to the skin used to correct volume loss and wrinkles that form as we age. Restylane Lyft is manufactured using Galderma’s patented XpresHAn Technology, which creates cross-linking of HA. The advantage is the skin is pliable and facial expressions are maintained.

How does it work? Dr. Chernoff and his certified nurse injectors use an ultrafine needle to skillfully inject Restylane Lyft into the targeted facial areas and/or into the back of the hands. To help minimize bruising, ice is applied and pressure is placed on the injection area following the injection. Slight swelling is normal around the injection area and typically fades within an hour or two following treatment.

What are the results? Restylane Lyft adds volume to nasolabial folds for up to 18 months, up to 12 months in the cheek, and up to 6 months for facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane Lift temporarily improves the appearance of the hands by increasing fullness in the back of the hand, with the effect usually lasting for 6-12 months. Patients need one or two treatments to achieve the best outcome. At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, patients receiving any injectable are seen one week post-injection.

Restylane-Refyne

Restylane Refyne is a specially formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler designed to soften laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). This injectable filler will smooth your smile lines while maintaining your facial expressions which keeps the results looking natural.

Restylane Refyne is comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA) gel and XpresHAn Technology, which creates cross-linking of HA allowing for more flexibility and support. Due to the stretch capabilities of this technology, skin is pliable, and facial expressions remain natural in appearance. Restylane Refyne is FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds in adults 21 years of age and older.

How does it work? Dr. Chernoff and his certified nurse injectors uses an ultrafine needle to skillfully inject Restylane Refyne into the targeted areas of the face. Restylane Refyne is injected into the mid-to-deep dermis around the nose and mouth. The gel fills the area resulting in an immediate plumping and smoothing of the wrinkles around the mouth. The filler contains Lidocaine which aids in numbing the areas injected so pain is minimal. Swelling typically fades within an hour or two following treatment.

What are the results? Restylane Refyne is proven to last up to 12 months in the nasolabial folds. At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, patients receiving any injectable are seen one week post-injection

Restylane-Defyne

Restylane Defyne is a specifically formulated Restylane dermal filler designed to correct moderate to deep facial folds and wrinkles. This product smooths out facial lines and plumps up the skin to fill in deep creases. Restylane Defyne is comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA) gel with a high lifting capacity along with XpresHAn Technology, which creates cross-linking of HA.

The advantage is the skin is pliable and facial expressions are visible. Restylane Defyne is FDA-approved for patients 21 and older to reduce the appearance of deep facial wrinkles and folds. It helps you maintain your facial expressions and movements while reducing the signs of aging.

How does it work? Dr. Chernoff and his certified nurse injectors use an ultrafine needle to skillfully inject Restylane Defyne deep into the targeted areas of the face. Restylane Defyne is a cross-linked formulation that results in a robust injectable gel that volumizes and contours facial wrinkles and folds. Slight swelling is normal around the injection area. The filler contains Lidocaine which aids in numbing the areas injected so pain is minimal. Swelling typically fades within an hour or two following treatment.

What are the results? Restylane Defyne is proven to last up to 12 months in the nasolabial folds. At Chernoff Plastic Surgery, patients receiving any injectable are seen one week post-injection.

Restylane-Silk

Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved product designed specifically for plumping up thin lips and smoothing wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years of age and older.

Restylane Silk provides natural-looking results due to the use of smaller and smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in the other Restylane family of products.

How does it work? Dr. Chernoff and his certified nurse injectors use an ultrafine needle to skillfully inject Restylane Silk in the mid-to-deep dermis of the targeted area. Slight swelling is normal around the injection area but the pain should be minimal due to the presence of Lidocaine in the formula. For lip enhancement, swelling may be more pronounced; however, swelling typically fades within an hour or two following treatment.

What are the results? Restylane Silk results are natural-looking and, with optimal treatment, have been shown to last for approximately 6 months. At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, patients receiving any injectable are seen one week post-injection.
