Restylane, manufactured by Galderma (formerly Medicis), is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar compound that effectively restores volume to skin. The Restylane family of products includes Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Refyne, and Restylane® Defyne.
Restylane® and Restylane-L® are for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane® and Restylane-L® are also indicated for injection into the lips in patients over the age of 21. Dr. Lee uses Restylane Silk primarily to enhance and correct lines in lips.
With minimal downtime and no surgery, products in the Restylane family are used to:
- provide natural-looking results by smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds and adding volume to lips (Restylane)
- provide subtle lip enhancement and smoothing the lines around them (Restylane Silk )
- add lift and volume to the cheeks and facial wrinkles and folds (Restylane Lyft)
- provide natural-looking results to laugh lines with flexibility that allows you to maintain your natural expressions (Restylane Refyne & Restylane Defyne)
Dr. Lee recently used Restylane Lyft to do a non-surgical rhinoplasty to correct a bump in the nose. The results are amazing and the patient is very happy, especially after being told that her only option for correction was be plastic surgery.

Client Testimonial – Restylane
How Restylane Injections Work
Restylane is often the choice of cosmetic filler providers because it one of the safest, most highly effective and long lasting ways to revitalize facial features giving skin a more youthful appearance. Restylane is injected using a MicroCannula and then lightly massaged to enhance desired contouring.
What To Expect From Restylane Injections
Dr. Lee uses topical anesthetic creams prior to each procedure and is the National Physician Instructor for the use of Anti-Bruising MicroCannula to ensure maximal comfort during Restylane treatments. Patients can expect some temporary swelling and may experience facial redness at the injection site. The overall results visibly improve facial contours and return your appearance to what you were years before.
When Restylane Injections Are Needed
Restylane treatments lasts up to 6 months in most areas but when used off-label in the Tear Trough area under eyes, patients report excellent results up to two years since this is an area of little mobility. Las Vegas Doctor Garry R. Lee recommends regular touch ups as necessary to maintain the youthful appearance of your skin.
