WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RESTYLANE®, RESTYLANE-L® AND RESTYLANE-LYFT®?
Each variant in the Restylane line-up is chemically similar to one another, with only slight differences in concentrations and particle size.
However, this means that each is better suited for a particular use.
- Restylane®. Standard Restylane contains the finest particle size, and thus is better suited to areas where fine detail is required. This includes the lips and around the eyes but can also include the cheeks.
- Restylane-L®. The most versatile of the group, and containing the local anesthetic, lidocaine for increased comfort during injection, Restylane-L is thicker, and better suited for areas that require a slightly more drastic approach. Around the mouth, cheeks and nose, where deep creases and lines can form, are the ideal locations for this option.
- Restylane-Lyft®. The thickest and densest of the line, Restylane-Lyft is ideal for large areas that would require multiple injections of Restylane and Restylane-L, including the cheeks, forehead and even the backs of the hands.
