Injectables: The Differences Between The Restylane Products

If you are considering injectables for skin enhancement, you may have heard of the Restylane line of products and procedures. With so many products available, however, you may be a bit confused about how each product works and what’s right for you. To help you decide what’s best, consult with one of our dermatologists. In the meantime, following is a basic breakdown of the differences between the Restylane products.


Basics about the Restylane Line of Injectables


Restylane®


Overall, Restylane is a hyaluronic acid gel that can be used to add volume and fullness to skin, essentially correcting facial wrinkles and folds. It can also be used to enhance lips.


Restylane® Lyft™


Restylane Lyft can be used specifically to add volume to your cheeks and hands.


Restylane® Silk


Restylane Silk is designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth.


Restylane® Refyne™


Restylane Refyne’s technology is designed to soften laugh lines and overall wrinkles and lines, helping to restore a more natural look to your face.


Restylane® Defyne™


Restylane Defyne helps smooth out deeper smile lines.


Differences Between the Restylane Products


• Restylane Refyne vs. Restylane Defyne: The main difference is that Restylane Refyne is used for mild to moderate wrinkles and general lines, while Restylane Defyne treats moderate to severe smile lines.


• Restylane Silk vs. Restylane Lyft: Restylane Silk is the only FDA-approved product for lip enhancement, and it also smoothes wrinkles around the lips. Restylane Lyft is used to “lift” or fill in various areas of your face, including the cheeks and temples. It can also fill depressed areas of your nose and erase lines around your mouth.
