What is Restylane?
Like Juvederm, Restylane products are made with naturally derived hyaluronic acid (HA), a moisturizing compound that is common in youthful complexions. With the aging process, one’s normally abundant supply of HA is gradually depleted, leaving the skin hollow-looking and prone to wrinkles.
Once injected, Restylane in Redwood City helps smooth the skin, fill in depressions, and restore an even, attractive complexion. Products are made with innovative NASHA Technology (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid) to provide you with stable, lasting results.
What Concerns Can Be Addressed with Restylane Products?
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Wrinkles, folds, and creases
- Under-eye hollows
- Acne scars
- Skin depressions
- Volume loss
- Depleted, thinning lips
- Lip lines
- Loss of definition in the jawline
What Are the Different Restylane Formulations?
Kysse is engineered to combat volume loss in the lips while smoothing away lip lines. XpresHAn technology ensures that the filler is integrated seamlessly and that the mouth moves spontaneously with the utmost flexibility.
Silk is another excellent option for filling, softening, and smoothing the lips. It can also improve the appearance of lines around the mouth, thanks to smaller particle engineering. Results can last up to six months.
This filler is formulated to reduce stubborn lines around the mouth. It can restore volume in the cheeks and enhance the appearance of the entire lower face, diminishing wrinkles, lines, and creases. Restylane Lyft is often used to replenish the backs of the hands as well.
Refyne is engineered with proprietary XpresHAn Technology to correct nasolabial folds and marionette lines without sacrificing natural spontaneity and flexibility in the facial expression. Results last 6-12 months.
Made with XpresHAn Technology, Defyne helps smooth away deep laugh lines around the mouth. It can also be useful for improving the chin profile through non-surgical augmentation. Results can last up to one year.
Contour was created to address the problem of flattened, volume-depleted cheeks. It can help restore a fuller, rounder facial shape with natural-looking results that last over one year.

Who is a Good Candidate for Injections of Restylane in Redwood City?
Restylane is ideal for clients over 21 years of age who seek a safe, non-invasive method of augmenting the lips, smoothing away lines and folds, and reestablishing healthy-looking skin. Women who are pregnant or nursing, as well as immunocompromised individuals, will not be suitable candidates for Restylane. Let your provider know if you are allergic to any components in Restylane.
What Can I Expect From My Session?
Most patients find Restylane injections to be quick, painless, and stress-free. If desired, a topical numbing agent can be applied to the skin prior to your session. Additionally, many Restylane products already contain built-in lidocaine to maximize your comfort. Once you are ready, your injections are administered strategically at the agreed-upon points to minimize your aesthetic concerns and rebuild your confidence.
What Happens After Restylane Injections?
After Restylane, patients can immediately resume their normal activities; there is no downtime required. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours, along with alcohol consumption. Minor redness, swelling, and tenderness around the injection sites are normal, but these side effects will fade within a few days and are not considered severe enough to interfere with your routine.
