Restylane is a brand of dermal fillers employed to enhance facial appearance and reduce the signs of aging. They are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar compound that is essential to youthful skin. HA attracts and binds to water to restore volume and provide a natural look and feel. Hyaluronic acid fillers help to maintain skin hydration for a youthful glow.

Some common Restylane products include Restylane-L, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, and Restylane Defyne. Each product has unique properties and is tailored for different areas of the face and specific treatment goals. The Restylane family of fillers contains lidocaine to reduce injection discomfort.

Restylane fillers are commonly used to enhance lip volume and shape (Restylane Silk or Restylane Kysse), reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles (Restylane-L), add volume to cheeks and mid-face (Restylane Lyft), smooth nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines, fill in under-eye hollows (tear troughs), and improve facial contours and redefine the jawline (Restylane Defyne).
