Restylane® is a dermal filler composed of Hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. Its job is to help provide structure, elasticity and fullness to your skin and tissues that has diminished due to aging.
Restylane in Bloomfield Hills
Over time our skin decreases the amount of Hyaluronic acid it produces, and as it diminishes, the skin loses volume, thus increasing folds and wrinkles. Restylane injections are for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It can be used to correct the lines from the nose to the mouth, known as the nasolabial folds. You can expect to have smoother, younger-looking skin for at least 6 months.
Dr. Ellen offers several varieties of Restylane. You can learn more about each of these products on the Envee Aesthetics site by clicking on the product names below.
Restylane Refyne is a hyaluronic acid filler which is formulated using XpresHAn technology, which makes it easier to inject and creates a natural and soft look. Refyne is typically used for mild to moderate lines around the mouth and nose, specifically those that are caused by repetitive movement. Patients with laugh lines often benefit from treatment using Restylane Refyne.
Restylane Defyne is commonly used for nasolabial folds, which are lines that form between the sides of the nose and the corners of the mouth. Like Refyne, Restylane Defyne is produced using XpresHAn technology, resulting in a smooth gel product. However, Defyne is typically chosen for patients with more severe folds and smile lines. If you have deeper laugh lines or nasolabial folds, Restylane Defyne may be the correct option for you.
Restylane Lyft was the first dermal filler to receive FDA approval for use in both the face and the hands. The formula is designed to fill in areas of lost volume, particularly the cheeks and the backs of the hands, to achieve a more youthful appearance. Restylane Lyft results in a natural and soft appearance with improved volume and elasticity.
