WHAT IS RESTYLANE?
The Restylane brand is a series of injectable fillers made of hyaluronic acid with different qualities. The goal of fillers like Restylane is to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Sometimes this means replacing lost volume, like in the face as we age, whereas other times it is to add volume to enhance an aesthetic appeal, like in the lips.
The Restylane line provides fillers with different thicknesses and flexibility to more ideally cater to the areas of the body that are in need of volumization and rejuvenation. Two of the characteristics important to fillers are flexibility (G’ or G prime) and cohesiveness (how well the filler stays together). The higher the G’ value, the greater the filler can resist deformation. This is great for bringing volume to areas that need a lot of structural support. Lower G’ fillers are better for smoothening and softening areas. Think of the difference between Jell-O and pudding. XpresHAn Technology™ is used in the Refyne, Defyne, and Kysse products, creating a more flexible product that has a more natural appearance with movement.
The array of Restylane products have been fine-tuned to best serve the needs of certain areas of the body. Discussed below are the products we offer and their benefits.
This is a fine hyaluronic acid filler that is ideal for fine wrinkles around the mouth and uses in the lips. The smoother consistency and smaller particle size make it suitable for subtle lip enhancements, like improving lip symmetry and restoring lip fullness.
As the name implies, this filler provides structural support. This is a thicker filler that is ideal for areas that need volume and sturdy support. It is ideal for revolumization in the upper cheek as well as correction of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, like the nasolabial folds.
Using XpresHAn Technology™, this is an ideal filler for improvement of mild to moderate laugh lines around the mouth, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. It is a smooth gel that provides natural-looking movement and facial expression.
This is a thicker, yet flexible product. Like Lyft, it can provide structural support, but also affords more flexibility in areas of motion. It can correct mild to moderate wrinkles and folds. Like Restylane Refyne, Defyne is great for areas of facial movement.
Restylane Kysse is the new kid on the block. It is designed for adding lip enhancement and fullness to the lips and smoothing lip lines. It is a flexible filler that provides natural-looking results.

"I’m new to Port St. Lucie and I was highly recommended by the PA Kimberly Cray , From the minute I walked in I didn’t get the receptionist name, but I could not have been greeted with a bigger smile, and it was very helpful, I had finished most of my forms online so that also speed it up my wait time which in the waiting room wasn’t more than eight minutes, I was brought back by the medical assistant. She got all my information, and shortly after Kimberly came in and gave me a head to toe check up.. Kimberly is so thorough kind patient explains everything you need to know she zapped quite a few pre-cancerous spots and answered all my questions so if you’re looking for a great team who really care about the patients give this place try and ask for Kimberly"- S. / Google / Oct 26, 2023

How much does Restylane cost?
The cost of Restylane injections can vary based on several factors, including the formulation used, the target area, the amount of filler needed, and more. During your consultation, your injector will answer any questions or concerns you may have before developing a custom Restylane treatment plan. After this, your cost can be estimated, and we can review payment options.
What is Restylane most commonly used for?
The Restylane family includes a variety of products, each one designed to make you appear refreshed but still natural. In your consultation, your injector will talk about the various Restylane formulas and recommend one that matches your needs. Restylane Lyft, Refyne, and Defyne improve mild to deep facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane Lyft and Silk add volume to the hands, cheeks, and lips.
How often do I need to come back for a touch-up?
On average, Restylane results last from 6 – 18 months. This will vary based on which Restylane formula is used, where it is injected, and other factors. Your injector will make your treatment plan, including how often you may need to visit for maintenance treatments.
Do Restylane injections hurt?
You may feel mild discomfort during the procedure. Prior to your injection, a numbing cream can be applied to reduce any sensations and help you feel more comfortable. Following the treatment, a cold compress will be applied to reduce swelling and bruising.
