There are many factors that contribute to skin aging, one of which is a loss of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in skin that keeps the skin hydrated and firm by absorbing and holding on to water molecules between the cells of skin (the intracellular space). As we age, hyaluronic acid is gradually lost from the skin, and as a result, skin develops wrinkles and folds. The good news is you can do something about it. You can use the Restylane family of fillers – Restylane Silk, Perlane, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne – to reveal a younger-looking you.
The Restylane® family of products includes Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft (formerly known as Perlane and Perlane-L), Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne. These products can be used individually 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). The Restylane® family can also be used in other moderate to severe facial wrinkles such as lipstick lines—the area just below the nose and above the upper lip; the corners of the mouth; and marionette lines—the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline. The Restylane® family of products are made of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. Biocompatible with the human body, these products are eventually broken down naturally.
The Restylane® family of products instantly adds volume to help restore youthful contours, so you’ll see results immediately following your treatment. The treatment typically takes around 30 minutes and there is little to no downtime. In a clinical study of nasolabial folds, at least 95% of patients treated with Restylane® continued to see results for up to 18 months after initial treatment when patients returned for a follow-up treatment at 4.5 or nine months. In three clinical studies of 150 patients each, on average 70% of patients maintained improvement for six months after just one Perlane treatment. After your treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. This will normally last less than seven days. If you want a more youthful appearance, but you’re concerned about the potential discomfort from treatment, you can get beautiful results and a more comfortable treatment experience with Restylane-L or Perlane-L. By combining lidocaine with Restylane and Perlane, Restylane-L and Perlane-L help reduce discomfort during and after treatment. In clinical studies evaluating the Restylane® family of products:
72% of patients reported significantly less pain during treatment with Restylane-L vs. Restylane.
95% of patients reported significantly less pain during treatment with Perlane-L vs. Perlane.
Patients continued to experience less discomfort for up to one hour after treatment.
How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane adds 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). Restylane works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane® is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid. So, you can use Restylane to visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds for a younger-looking you.
What is the Difference between Restylane and Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is a recently FDA-approved filler and it is specifically designed, developed and approved for enhancing the look and beauty of your lips. When injected skillfully by your physician, Restylane Silk is able to enhancement the lips and smooth out the lines and wrinkles around the lips and mouth.
Similar to Restylane, Restylane Silk also contains Hyaluronic acid and is able to restore and replenish the naturally-available (and often, declining) Hyaluronic acid in the lips. What makes Restylane Silk specifically suitable for lip enhancement is its adjusted consistency and gel particle size.
While aging process affects all parts of face and body, the effects of aging can often be more prominent in some areas such as lips. Signs of premature aging in lips area include thinning of lips and volume loss and emergence of vertical lines above the upper lip.

How Does Perlane (Restylane Lyft) Work?
Just like Restylane, Perlane (Restylane Lyft) adds 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). Like Restylane, Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to add fullness like your body’s own hyaluronic acid. What makes Perlane different is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection. On average, the gel particles in Perlane are larger than those in Restylane, which makes Perlane a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin. In three clinical studies of 150 patients each, on average 70% of patients maintained improvement for six months after just one Perlane treatment.
What About Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne?
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are next-generation fillers and new additions to Restylane family of dermal fillers. Both these FDA-approved fillers are also based on Hyaluronic acid – the hydrating and volumizing gel that is naturally present in our skin and is lost as our skin ages – but they have been further refined and redesigned to possess special characteristics.
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are based on XpresHAn Technology™ which makes them more responsive to natural movements in the face as the result of normal facial expressions. These products are designed in a way to offer more flexibility, shifting shape in response to local pressure. This feature allows more natural facial expression for patients who have received Restylane Refyne or Defyne.
Restylane Refyne and Defyne are great choices for softening and reducing laugh lines, marionette lines and nasolabial folds. While preserving a natural look and appearance is an important aspect of your treatment and an experienced physician like Dr. Jafari can greatly help in achieving this goal, use of Restylane Refyne and Defyne can further help to this end given the specific structure of these new fillers.
Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are ideal dermal fillers to support and maintain a more natural facial expression and look, especially in areas of the face where there is normally more movement (e.g. around the mouth). The difference between these two dermal fillers is primarily based on their firmness. Restylane Defyne has firmer consistency, making it more suitable for deeper lines and folds, while Restylane Refyne is less firm and better suited for more superficial injections.
Restylane Refyne and Defyne are also specifically designed to further promote their longevity in the skin. Once injected by your doctor, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne last for up to 12 months, while individual results may vary.

- Filler injections (Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra, Belotero, Voluma, Volbella, Bellafill, Restylane & Perlane) to add volume & diminish wrinkles instantly. Dermal fillers are used to create volume under the skin in a fine & skillful procedure that has been likened to sculpting or non-surgical face lift. Dr. Jafari is highly experienced in using various dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra, Belotero, Restylane & Perlane to accentuate your natural beauty & defy the effects of aging. Juvederm, Belotero, Voluma, Restylane & Perlane are based on hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance that is naturally present in skin, contributing to the firmness of young & healthy skin. Dr. Jafari at Amoderm Med Spa can replenish the skin’s lost hyaluronic acid by injection of Juvederm, Perlane, Restylane, Belotero or Voluma. On the other hand, Radiesse utilizes a calcium-based microsphere technology, which not only provides immediate volume restoration, but it also stimulates the body to produce new collagen, creating much more long-lasting results. Similarly, Sculptra is derived from corn-starch and is highly effective in stimulating body to produce more collagen. Dr. Jafari skillfully injects the dermal fillers into areas such as smile lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lips, tear trough, nose bridge, cheeks, chin, neck and hands and takes away years of age in a few minutes! Dr. Jafari is highly experienced in techniques such as microcannula injections, which can reduce the bruising associated with the procedure.
