The Restylane® Soft Tissue Filler range includes 7 Hyaluronic Acid gels:

Restylane
Restylane Fynesse (Emervel Touch)
Restylane Refyne (Emervel Classic)
Restylane Volyme (Emervel Volume)
Restylane Defyne (Emervel Deep)
Restylane Lyft (Restylane Perlane)
Restylane Kysse (Emervel Lips)

Each of these products contains 20 mg/ml of Non-Animal Stabilised or Multi Crosslinked Hyaluronic Acid Gel and 3 mg/ml Lidocaine (a topical anaesthetic, drastically enhancing patient comfort and turning the procedure into a virtually painless experience).

Each of these products is used to reduce or eliminate lines, folds and wrinkles, to contour and sculpt facial features and to replace lost volumes.

One might ask why the need for 7 different products?  The answer lies in the size of the particles of the hyaluronic acid gel.  A gel can bend and stretch, but it cannot flow through a syringe or a cannula.  For this it must be broken down into particles.

The size of the particles is what distinguishes the 7 products: smaller particles are usually injected less deep in the skin and they attract more water.  Larger particles are injected deeper and have a bigger lifting effect.  In other words: for fine work, we will use small particle gels, for the big jobs large ones. 

What distinguishes Restylane® from other Hyaluronic Acid products is that the size of the particles is identical per each gel, while other brands may have small, medium and large particles in one and the same product. This can considerably influence the result of the procedure.  Compare it to building a wall: using all bricks of the same size will result in a better wall.

Which product to use for which procedure is an important decision to be made by your aesthetic doctor, based on the area of use, the quality and thickness of your skin and the required result.

Restylane® was the first hyaluronic acid soft tissue filler to be approved by the American FDA for aesthetic use and is now worldwide considered to be the gold standard for reduction or removal of moderate facial wrinkles and folds.
