Restylane Family Products and Their Differences

October 5, 2017

There are various dermal fillers that are introduced and circulated through the cosmetic market which makes it confusing for patients to understand their options. It is important for all patients to consult with a professional before deciding which hyaluronic acid (HA) filler is the best treatment choice for his or her needs. While the differences between each product may be slight, there are certainly more appropriate areas for specific fillers than others. Sistine Plastic Surgery in Pittsburgh thinks that by choosing the correct choice of dermal filler, it will result in optimal improvement with more natural appearing results.

Many of the injectable fillers that we use are from the Restylane® family. Here is a quick overview of the Restylane products that we carry and where we prefer to inject each of them:


  • Great for tear trough correction
  • Used for non-surgical Rhinoplasty

Restylane® Refyne

  • Best for more shallow, superficial lines

Restylane® Defyne

  • Treatment for deeper lines and folds

Restylane® Silk

  • FDA approved for lip augmentation

Restylane® Lyft

  • Used for improving nasolabial folds
  • Adds volume to the cheeks
