Galderma Aesthetic Injectable Products Overview
Restylane with NASHA Technology
NASHA technology relies largely on a natural cross-linked entanglement of hyaluronic acid strands which creates a firmer gel texture intended for a more pronounced lift. A small number of additional cross-links are added to slow degradation in the body and prolong the gel’s effect. Since NASHA features a pronounced lifting capacity in a smooth gel, it enables precision sculpting for projection and definition and is used where a firmer product is preferred.
RESTYLANE is formulated for lip enhancement, and to treat moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds (which run from nose to corners of the mouth) and marionette lines (which run from corners of the mouth towards the chin.) In a clinical study, subjects saw a 95% improvement even 18 months after initial injection.
SILK is designed to treat the wrinkles around the mouth, vertical lines above the lips, and for lip augmentation. Your lips will maintain their natural look and movement, but look silkier, smoother, creating an overall younger appearance to your face. In a clinical study, 98% reported visible improvement in lip fullness.
LYFT (previously known as Perlane) treats wrinkles and volume loss in the cheeks, midface area, and hands. In a clinical study, 95% of subjects saw improvement two months after treatment.
Restylane with XpresHAn Technology
XpressHAn Technology (globally known as Optimal Balance Technology) is an innovative collection of hyaluronic acid (HA) formulations used to produce a wide range of gel textures by varying the number of cross-links between HA molecules. Fewer cross-links provide a softer gel, while more cross-links between HA molecules result in a firmer gel. These injectables are used to add volume in the midface, or to enhance contours for patients with thinner tissue coverage where a softer product is preferred. Restylane XpressHAn gels are also used for dynamic areas of the face such as lips and cheek wrinkles.
REFYNE Look like you, while this next-generation filler supports your skin and softens laugh lines. Refyne is designed for true-to-life results so you look natural even while frowning, smiling, or puckering your lips. In a clinical study, 97% were satisfied with their results.
DEFYNE smooths deep nasolabial and marionette lines of the face, while supporting flexibility through your full facial expression range, and also enhances chin projection. Did you know that chins can recede as we age? This chin retrusion can be improved. In a clinical study, 97% would do the treatment again.
KYSSE is a flexible, natural-looking and longer-lasting filler for lip augmentation and for perioral lines (wrinkles above the mouth.) Kysse also enhances the color and texture of lips. It’s gel formulation allows for natural looking lips. In a clinical study, 96% of subjects agreed their lips look natural.
CONTOUR is developed for natural-looking correction of mid-face counters and for cheek augmentation. In a clinical study, 98% of patients were satisfied with their result one year after initial treatment.
What to expect with a Restylane treatment
Depending on how large an area of your skin you’re having treated, Restylane injections can take from 15 minutes to an hour. You can have the procedure during your lunch break and return to work or other routine activities immediately afterward. Pain and discomfort is generally minimal and well tolerated. A very fine needle is used for the injections. If you’re concerned, however, you can request a topical anesthetic to numb the skin before the injection.
No allergy testing is typically necessary prior to treatment. Restylane does not contain any animal proteins, so your body is highly unlikely to have an allergic reaction to it. But, like other dermal fillers, Restylane may produce some post-treatment side effects. Most are very mild, and include swelling, redness, and possible bruising. They’re usually gone within a few hours or a few days.
