What is Restylane®?

Do you feel like your appearance isn’t as refreshed as it used to be? Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that helps restore youthful volume to your face. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a molecule that is naturally found in the skin but begins to diminish as we age, resulting in a less radiant, fatigued and older appearance. The Restylane® family of injectables have been developed to mimic the way your own skin’s HA works, for smooth and natural-looking results you can feel confident about.

What Restylane® products are available at MD TLC™?

These products include multiple fillers that vary slightly in particle size and in the way the particles are cross-linked, giving Dr. Quibell plenty of options to artfully address your specific needs. Depending on the area you wish to enhance and the severity of volume loss present, Dr. Quibell will recommend using any one of the following fillers.

RESTYLANE®: combats common signs of aging by adding fullness and volume for moderate to severe wrinkles and folds on the face, including smile lines and nasolabial folds. It can also be used to add fullness, definition and symmetry to the lips.

RESTYLANE® LYFT: helps lift and define the mid-face, correcting volume loss and enhancing contour. In addition to being a great choice for improving signs of aging in the cheeks, Freestyle Lyft can also be used to treat facial wrinkles and folds. It is commonly used on top of the bone in the deep fat pads to create Volumetric Structural Rejuvenation.

RESTYLANE® DEFYNE: smooths deeper folds and wrinkles in the skin, including nasolabial folds. Formulated with cross-linked molecules, this gel contains tightly woven particles that help support your skin for enhanced wrinkle correction. This agent is flexible and prevents unnatural stiffness around the mouth.

RESTYLANE® REFYNE: offers subtle enhancements for wrinkles and lines around the mouth. Restylane Refyne is formulated with the similar cross-linking technology, but with particles that are cross-linked in a looser way to give you even more flexibility and natural-looking outcomes. This agent can be used for very superficial lines without causing lumpiness.

RESTYLANE® KYSSE: provides lips with natural-looking volume and Kysse-able softness. Kysse is the first lip filler designed with XpresHAn Technology™ for flexible movement and natural-looking volume. Enhance the texture and color of your lips while maintaining a full range of expressions. The results are proven to last for up to 1 year.

RESTYLANE® SILK: specifically formulated for the lips and the area around the lips. Restylane Silk enhances lip volume, shape and symmetry. This formulation also smooths the vertical lines around the lips. Dr. Quibell may also use this filler for tear troughs and nasal augmentation when used with a cannula.

How do I decide if Restylane® is right for me?

Restylane® is a safe and effective hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler when injected by a skilled and qualified physician such as Dr. Quibell. It is safe for all skin types and ethnicities. Our patients at MD TLC™ have been extremely pleased with the enhancements in volume correction and the smoothing of wrinkles they see after a treatment.

What can I expect during treatments?

At MD TLC™, Dr. Quibell performs all injections, ensuring patients receive the utmost care and comfort during the treatment. As will all injectable fillers, the skill of the medical professional plays a key component in the outcome. Dr. Quibell is not only extremely experienced in injectable treatments, she is also an educator in the field of aesthetics, having trained hundreds of clinicians in injectables.

After an initial consultation, Dr. Quibell will perform the injectable treatment during a short office visit. While downtime is generally very minimal for a Restylane® treatment, the site of injection may become slightly red, swollen or tender following the treatment. These side effects are generally mild and tend to subside within a few days.

Dr. Quibell may offer patient-controlled Pro-Nox™, a 50/50 gas blend of nitrous oxide and oxygen, or apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort and anxiety during the session.

How long do the results last?

Depending on the Restylane® filler used, and on the area of the face it is injected, your results can last for up to a year or more.
