Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines from the corner of your mouth down towards your chin). Restylane® also helps replace volume loss in the lips and tear troughs. Restylane® mimics the hyaluronic acid that is already naturally produced in your body.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Restylane used for?
Restylane is used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines from the corner of your mouth down towards your chin). Restylane® also helps replace volume loss in the lips, giving you a smooth, plump pout.

What is the difference between Restylane and Juvederm?
Both products are hyaluronic acid fillers. Restylane is manufactured by Galderma and Juvederm is manufactured by Allergan. Due to differences in manufacturing, each product excels in different parts of the face.
What is the difference between Restylane and Restylane silk?
Restylane is used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). It is also used to plump lips and to replace volume underneath the eyes. Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle Lip Augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth. It is composed of a gel that is smaller and smoother than other Restylane products, resulting in a softer, more precise result.
