Restylane, Restylane Silk, Lyft, Refyne & Defyne

The Restylane family of products are safe, natural and effective cosmetic dermal fillers used to  eliminate wrinkles, restore facial volume and augment lips. Restylane is the first and only dermal filler made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide fullness to the skin and restore it's natural moisture. Virtually any area of facial skin can be treated with one of the Restylane products and each has been designed to address specific areas of concern.

This unique family of dermal fillers includes Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne, each purposefully designed to treat specific areas of the face.

How does Restylane® Tampa work?

Restylane fillers are clear, synthetic gels made with hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar found throughout your body. When injected, it acts like a cushion to support facial structures that have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. This makes it particularly effective in treating static wrinkles, or those resulting from lax tissues and skin. The hyaluronic acid forms strong bonds with water molecules in the skin, adding moisture to keep it smooth and supple while prolonging its rejuvenating effects from 6-9 months.

Restylane can:

  • smooth deep facial lines and creases
  • improve appearance of scars, either from acne or trauma
  • restore facial volume and symmetry
  • sculpt the cheek and jawline
  • eliminate wrinkles and hollows around the eyes

How does Restylane Silk® work?

Restylane Silk is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth.  Just like the other members of the Restylane family, Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, only it's made of smaller, smoother particles for the extremely delicate areas around the mouth and lips. It is perfect for removing "smoker's lines" and delivering natural-looking, yet fuller lips for a more youthful appearance, typically lasting 6 months.In a clinical study of patients treated with Restylane® Silk or no treatment, clinical investigators reported that 98% of patients reported a visible improvement in lip fullness 14 days after injection; and  76% of patients still had lip improvement six months following treatment.

Restylane Silk® can:

  • plump thinning lips
  • eliminate fine lines around upper and lower lips

How Does Restylane Lyft Work?

Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved injectable filler to erase smile lines (nasolabial folds) and replace lost volume in cheeks.  Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more wrinkles, and a reduction of volume.  Restylane Lyft, with a hyaluronic acid formula, effectively restores a healthy, youthful contour to the mid-face, enhancing your appearance without surgery and lasting 12 months or longer.

Resylane Lyft can:

  • smooth moderate to severe nasolabial folds
  • lift facial tissue
  • restore shape to sunken, hollow cheeks
  • replenish mid-face volume and definition

Introducing Restylane Refyne & Defyne

Both of these facial fillers are manufactured using the XpresHAn Technology, which creates a new method of cross linking hyaluronic acid. This, in turn, makes the new gel-type facial fillers flexible within the skin, pliable each time you move your face. Each time you laugh, cry, or frown, the Refyne and Defyne face fillers will still look soft and natural instead of stiff and puffy. Our expert injectors use the Rusher Movement Technique (RMT) when evaluating your face for injections. This flexibility of the Refyne and Defyne allows our injectors the unique ability to inject based upon the movement of your face and be confident that the filler will move with your expressions.

How Does Restylane Refyne Work?

Restylane® Refyne is used to:
• Smooth nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth
• Fill marionette lines, the creases that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin
• Give reliable support that is subtle and flexible

How Does Restylane Defyne Work?

Restylane® Defyne is used to:
• Fill in nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth
• Smooth marionette lines, the wrinkles that form between the corners of the mouth and the chin and jawline
• Address mild-to-moderate wrinkles and folds
• Provide facial rejuvenation in the lower face around the mouth


A Restylane filler is injected into the facial area targeted for enhancement and the benefit is visible immediately. The amount of time the procedure will take depends on the number of areas being treated, generally lasting 30 minutes or less. Patients actually see a younger looking face in minutes! Treatments are not painful; all contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, and no downtime is required.  The Restylane family of fillers is safe for all skin types and ethnicities, and typically, lasts twice as long as collagen. Depending on treatment area and product selected, results can last 6-12 months.

If you would like to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, or add volume to facial features such as the lips, Restylane® may be just the treatment you need for the most optimal and effective results.
