What is Restylane?
Restylane is an all-around facial rejuvenation solution- perfect for volumizing areas under the eyes, lips, nose, hands, and cheeks. The clear gel is composed of natural Hyaluronic Acid. Its firm, moldable consistency allows the gel to be injected and shaped into various facial areas for various benefits.
While some may opt for Restylane injections for beautiful lip enhancements, many choose to correct fine and deep lines and creases or give their face a youthful lift.
How does Restylane work?
Restylane is a filler that is made of a clear, Hyaluronic-Acid gel. Hyaluronic-Acid is the key to smooth and hydrated skin, as it naturally exists in our bodies to lubricate our skin, joints, and other tissues. Restylane acts like your body's natural Hyaluronic Acid, evenly distributing the appearance of facial fat and volume in treatment areas.
Which Restylane treatment is best for me?
Restylane products vary in thickness and texture, making your treatment fully customizable. Here are some of the Restylane products you can choose from at Elite Top Aesthetics:
Restylane L ®
Restylane L ® is one of the first fillers to smooth out mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles. At Elite Top Aesthetics, our specialists exclusively use this injection to correct tear troughs and fine lines around the mouth
Restylane® Lyft is a slightly thicker and more robust gel used to correct deep lines and restore volume to the face and hands. Restylane® Lyft's thicker texture makes it ideal for cheek augmentation, deep nasolabial folds, and hand rejuvenation- with results lasting up to one year.
Restylane® Silk is Ideal for treating thinning lips, loss of shape, and vertical lines around the mouth. Restylane Silk is specifically designed to target and enhance the overall look of the lip area, bringing out your natural features with the help of smaller Hyaluronic Acid particles.
Restylane® Kysse is the first lip filler designed with XpresHAn technology. It provides a beautiful and enhanced lip shape with flexible and natural movements of expression. Smooth, volumized, and naturally plump lips can last up to one year.
Restylane® Contour is an advanced Hyaluronic Acid injection that restores your cheek shape and definition. Restylane® Contour is designed with XpresHAn technology to provide your facial expressions with flexible movements to avoid "overfilled" cheeks- so you stay true to your natural contours.
Restylane® Refyne is a Cutting edge Restylane product that uses cross-link technology to treat mild to moderate lines and wrinkles. The cross-linking in Restylane® Refyne is loosely woven, providing more flexibility to the skin. This means that it's excellent for treating the lips and less severe lines around the mouth.
Restylane® Defyne: An innovative product added to the newest Line of Restylane. This injection's cross-links are closely bonded- so it's more tightly "woven." In other words, its molecular structure is less flexible and more supportive in treating moderate to severe lines. Restylane® Defyne is ideal for deeper, more severe smile lines, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.
What areas can Restylane be used?
What to expect
At Elite Top Aesthetics, our experienced providers will thoroughly evaluate your skin to determine which filler will help you achieve your desired goals. First, we'll use a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area. Your Restylane product of choice is then injected into your skin in small amounts with a very fine needle. We'll massage and mold the filler around the targeted area for an even, natural shape.
Immediately after the treatment, you may experience slight redness and swelling in the treated areas. This is a typical result of the injection- the discomfort is temporary and usually goes away within a few days. The overall treatment time can take between 15 to 45 minutes.
Restylane results duration
The results from Restylane® typically last between six and 12 months and usually require repeated treatments to maintain beautiful results. Individual results may vary depending on your skin absorption, metabolism, and your Restylane product of choice.
Note: After the injections the Botox® effect will start after 2 days
How Much Does Restylane Cost?
The cost of your Restylane treatment will depend on your product choice that best fits aesthetic goals and the number of syringes. The treatment can range from $600 - $800 per syringe.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Knowing the role Hyaluronic acid has in Restylane injections will help you understand the product’s true benefits on your skin. Hyaluronic Acid is a substance that exists naturally in your body, specifically in your eyes, joints, and skin. It is beneficial for hydrating and lubricating the skin-helping it to stretch, flex, and appear youthful and rejuvenated.
How long does Restylane last?
The results from Restylane® typically last between six and 12 months, depending on your skin absorption, Restylane product of choice, and other factors. At Elite Top Aesthetics, we recommend visiting us every 6 months to a year so we can maintain your desired look.
Restylane VS Juvederm?
Restylane and Juvederm are highly advanced, effective hyaluronic Acid-based fillers with special benefits and purposes. Restylane products come in multiple textures and thicknesses- making it a fully customizable treatment from cheek contours, fine lines, and wrinkles to hands.
Restylane’s main features are its granular texture, cohesiveness, and moldability- making it a more “stable” gel and better at “staying in place.” Restylane is great for volumizing sunken facial features or filling areas that need more volume. Juvéderm’s smoothness makes an excellent choice for addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and lips- revealing subtle plumpness that expands slightly over time.
What are the side effects of Restylane?
Side effects of Restylane tend to be less severe- and typically don’t require medical attention. Common side effects include Swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, and itching.
Does Restylane work immediately?
One of the unique features of Restylane® is that the results are noticeable immediately. The cohesive, granular consistency makes Restylane tightly bonded on a molecular level, so there isn’t a drastic change or “expansion” in the results after injection. However, your results will improve after about a week or two, so you’ll see your final results after two weeks.
Does Restylane help with my skin's collagen?
Not only does Restylane immediately rejuvenate and volumize your skin, but studies show that it simultaneously promotes new collagen as well. With rigorous studies, scientists have discovered Restylane stretches the cells in your skin that make collagen, known as fibroblasts. This causes the skin to create new collagen, reducing fine lines, creases, and wrinkles.
Is Restylane safe for everyone?
Restylane is an extremely safe product to hold back the signs of aging. However, we do advise you to ask your medical provider if Restylane is the right for you.
