With several skin-enhancing options, Restylane offers a family of dermal fillers that correct and transform aged skin by adding volume. Restylane was the first FDA-approved synthetic, biodegradable hyaluronic acid filler. Houston area cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kristi Sumpter offers the entire family of Restylane fillers, including Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Kysse, and Restylane Silk to meet the specific aesthetic needs of her patients. Each formulation of Restylane instantly reduces moderate to severe facial wrinkles and creates a softer, smoother skin appearance. The effects of any Restylane product can last six months or longer.
Restylane visibly corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).

- Restylane Lyft
Restylane Lyft is created with larger gel particles meant for deeper injections to fill in more severe folds and wrinkles. Once injected into the skin, the result is a lifted appearance. This injection is popular for cheek augmentation and the correction of irregularities in the mid-face. It creates a younger contour.

A typical Restylane treatment usually lasts 30 to 45 minutes, but it could be more or less depending on the number of areas being treated and the severity of the wrinkles. After thoroughly cleansing the face, the practitioner will mark the areas to be injected. Then, the practitioner will slowly apply the Restylane using a fine needle until the patient's desired shape, and contours are created. Most patients report no pain after the initial injection, but topical numbing cream can be used before the treatment to enhance the patient's comfort. The practitioner will continue adding Restylane to the needed areas until the patient's face has regained its youthful contours and the cheeks are lifted.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Patients will be able to see results from their Restylane treatment immediately, but the final results will appear after any swelling and redness in the treated areas subside. Patients should avoid strenuous activities and exercise for at least 24 hours, but normal and light activities can be started as soon as the patient feels able. For the first day after the treatment, patients should avoid putting any pressure on their face and to help the filler settle into the contours, and the head should remain elevated. Patients may be advised to sleep with their head propped up on several pillows for the first night. Results from Restylane products may last up to one year, depending upon which product is used, the depth of the wrinkles, and the amount of product used. Many patients may consider getting treatments every six to eight months to maintain their results without going completely back to baseline.
The cost of Restylane depends on which product, the amount and size of areas treated, and the severity of the wrinkles. A syringe of Restylane usually costs about $515, Restylane Lyft about $540, Restylane Refyne and Defyne about $645, Restylane Kysse about $550, and Restylane Silk about $525. Dr. Sumpter or Nurse Injector Mary Kuper will be better able to tell which product is best and estimate the number of syringes needed after discussing the patient's goals in a consultation. Restylane wrinkle fillers are only a temporary treatment, so patients will need more to return for more treatments to maintain their results.
