At Redefyne MD Aesthetics, we love to enhance your natural beauty by creating luscious lips, enhanced cheeks, refresh and rejuvenate with the latest fillers and Restylane line of products from Galderma are one of our favorites.
Restylane has many FDA approved products for creating enhanced lips, cheeks, facial rejuvenation and aging concerns. Whether you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, or beyond, Restylane has a solution for you.
As we age, our bodies produce less collagen. It’s a natural process that can have many unwanted effects. One of the biggest issues that arise from collagen loss is facial volume loss. Our cheeks deflate, and our wrinkles become more pronounced. Restylane® dermal fillers were designed to combat this process. These fillers use hyaluronic acid to restore your facial volume. This substance is a natural part of the body already, so an injection of more HA is safe and effective.
Restylane has dermal fillers with different consistency or thickness and elasticity or movement which determines the type of filler used. Restylane dermal fillers are FDA-approved for the correction of -moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane is used to treat the following concerns
1. Nasolabial folds: Folds around the mouth that are from volume loss
2. Marionette lines: Lines that form at the corners of the mouth
3. Vertical lip lines
4. Lip enhancement
5. Chin enhancement
6. Cheek enhancement
7. Tear troughs
8. Liquid facelift
Restylane® Kysse – One of the best fillers for the lips, Restylane Kysse differs from others with its latest technology. Restylane Kysse is the first lip filler that uses XpresHAN technology that allows flexible results and natural looking lips. This is a patented technology that creates filler that allows facial expression, movements of your mouth/kissing without the feel of a typical filler. Results last for up to 1 year. Specifically formulated for the lips, Kysse enhances volume, shape, and symmetry. This option also smooths the vertical lines around the lips.
Restylane Silk- The first FDA approved lip filler for lip enhancement. We love Restylane Silk for our lip enhancement and smoothening of wrinkles.
Juvederm is another line of fillers time tested and made by Allergan, company that makes Botox. We use Juvederm to create lip borders and lip enhancement.
Choice of filler is dependent on individual lip shape and anatomy.
Restylane Defyne- Restylane Defyne also uses XPres Han technology, patented technology that creates the perfect consistency to create and enhance chin projection,
Restylane® Refyne – Restylane Refyne again uses XPres Han technology which uses patented technology to create a more natural look around your mouth and helps soften laugh lines, and nasolabial folds. Dr. Katneni uses this option to provide soft filling in areas that need subtle enhancement. These include the forehead, brow, cheeks, smile lines, marionette lines, and lips.
What is Volbella?
Volbella is a hyaluronic acid filler from the Juvéderm family of products. Released in late
2016, it is approved for subtle, elegant volume enhancement of the lips and perioral region
(area around the mouth). It helps to fill fine lip lines, enhance lip borders, and smooth the
texture of the lips.
How is Volbella different from other hyaluronic acid
Volbella containes a low concentration of hyaluronic acid combined with Vycross
technology, a means of strongly linking the gel together. This combination results in a
smooth filler that lasts longer. In addition, there is typically less swelling with Volbella
compared to other lip fillers, allowing for a quicker return to daily activities.
During your consultation with Dr. Katneni, she’ll make suggestions for your best filler.
