What Is Restylane?

Restylane is a popular line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in Portland. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that attracts moisture and adds volume. Each type of Restylane injectable filler is designed for a specific purpose.


This facial filler is used to augment the lips and to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is also Dr. Kim’s filler of choice for nonsurgical rhinoplasty and tear-trough correction.

Restylane Lyft

Lyft is the first and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA to treat the hands and the face. It is designed to:

  • Restore volume in the backs of the hands
  • Augment the cheeks
  • Correct midface contour deficiencies related to aging
  • Treat moderate to severe facial folds, including smile lines around the mouth

Restylane Refyne and Defyne

Both of these products are designed to smooth the lines around the nose and mouth – nasolabial folds (from the nose to the mouth corners) and marionette lines (running from the mouth corners along the sides of the chin), while maintaining the flexibility and range of motion needed for natural-looking movement and facial expressions.

Restylane Kysse

Kysse is the all-new, long-lasting lip filler that gives you moisture, volume and prominence. Smoothing wrinkles, creases and lines, you’ll have naturally beautiful, plump lips that last up to 12 months. Kysse is also the only FDA-approved lip filler with a unique technology that helps it look natural while in motion.

Is There Any Downtime with Restylane?

You will not be able to drive until you are no longer taking prescription pain medication. It is important when driving that you have clear vision, so swelling around the eyes must be minimal enough to not cause visual obstruction. If you wear glasses, you may save and use your plastic splint as a buffer between the glasses and the skin for protection.
