Do you have marionette or smile lines around your nose and mouth? Loss of volume in the skin due to aging can be offset with the use of facial fillers. Restylane-L injections are one of the most sought-after treatments for combatting lines, wrinkles and loss of skin or tissue volume. At Avance Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer Restylane-L injections, including Defyne, Lyft and Refyne, at our clinic in Reno/Tahoe, NV.
Restylane is one of the most popular hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, offering immediate, natural-appearing volume enhancement for the skin. Restylane formulas use hyaluronic acid in a flexible gel, which absorbs moisture to add volume in or under the skin. Restylane contains lidocaine for a numbing effect at the time of injection, and it can be used for treating lines, wrinkles, folds or lost volume in the cheeks or skin. There are various formulas designed for treating different types of volume loss in multiple areas of the face.
Restylane Defyne, Lyft and Refyne
Restylane fillers include different formulas that are more suitable for various treatments. Depending on where the filler is used and the flexibility needed, it may require denser or thinner formulas to react naturally. Deep applications for adding cheek volume or smoothing severe folds require a denser formula, while surface wrinkles may need smaller particles and a thinner gel for more flexibility. Restylane formulas include:
- Refyne – For moderate smile or marionette lines around the nose or mouth, Refyne injections can add the needed volume with more flexibility.
- Defyne – For more severe smile lines, Defyne offers a denser version of Refyne for more effective smoothing of deeper folds, lines or wrinkles.
- Lyft – For cheek augmentation or to rejuvenate aged hands, Restylane Lyft is a good choice for dense volume enhancement under the skin.
If you want to smooth away lines, wrinkles or folds with immediate results, Restylane-L injections may be right for you. To learn more about our cosmetic treatments to look your best at any age, contact us at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute in Reno/Tahoe, NV, to schedule a consultation.
