Over time, natural fat begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face and hands. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks, midface area, and the back of the hands to help complete your aesthetic look — for face and hands.Restylane Lyft is injectable for the cheeks and nasolabial folds composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid retains moisture to smooth out wrinkles and add volume to the face. By injecting Restylane Lyft into the superficial subcutis, the skin will begin to naturally produce more moisture to continuously reduce wrinkles and increase volume.

Perlane is a dermal filler that adds volume to moderate to severe facial folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid, which attracts and absorbs water in the skin. Unlike other dermal fillers, which are injected into the superficial layers of the skin to treat mild facial wrinkles, Perlane is designed for injection deep within the skin, where it minimizes the appearance of more advanced lines and folds on the surface.
Did you know…
that Perlane is similar to Restylane? In fact, they are nearly identical. Both add volume and smooth wrinkles using hyaluronic acid. The difference is that Perlane is a thicker formulation designed for treating areas that require deeper dermal filling, such as the more severe folds that surround the mouth and nose. Perlane’s formulation also features results that last longer on average than Restylane.
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
As skin loses elasticity with age, the lines that run from the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) appear more noticeable.

The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Refyne is also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling, frowning and even puckering up.

The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Defyne is also designed to help support your facial expressions—for natural-looking results that help maintain your natural movement.
