The FDA-approved Restylane family of facial fillers are very similar,however, the hyaluronic acid gel particles in each product may vary as each product has a different application and is used in different ways to give the face more volume and fullness.
Restylane is used for more superficial facial wrinkles and folds, frown lines and forehead lines while Restylane Silk is used for lip enhancement and Restylane Lyft is used for mid-facial volume in the cheeks. Your expert injector will recommend the product that is best suited to your facial enhancement needs.
Restylane improves the appearance of:
- Marionette lines
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Moderate facial wrinkles
Restylane Silk is used for:
- Lip Enhancement and Definition
- Lip Line Crevices (Smoker's Lines)
Restylane Lyft is used for:
- Midface volume and contour

Depending on the type of filler used, treatments may be repeated two or three times a year or less. However, recent clinical trials have shown that a Restylane wrinkle treatment actually encourages the body to produce more collagen, requiring fewer Restylane injections over time and less hyaluronic acid during subsequent treatments.
