How Long Does Restylane Last (And Why)?

Exact Answer: 6 To 12 Months

The time it takes for how long a Restylane lasts generally depends on the type of Restylane. 5 types of Restylane are used as fillers.

Restylane refine is a formulation that is majorly used to refine or treat the facial lines caused around the lips due to laughing. Restylane refyne restores the volume beneath the surface of the skin where the fine lines are caused. It helps the person look more young and youthful by treating the nasolabial folds and the marionette lines under the skin.

How Long Does Restylane Last?

Type Of RestylaneTime
Refyne6 to 12 months
Silk6 to 12 months
Lyft6 to 18 months
Kysse1 to 3 years
Define6 to 12 months

The major benefit of the Restylane refyne is that it adds volume to the area without changing the way the person rests his or her face or as it moves. It lasts for about 6 months to 12 months on average.

Restylane Silk is another type of Restylane that is majorly used to augment the lips. Restylane silk does not just enhance the lips by increasing both their size and their fullness as well, but it also makes vertical mouth wrinkles, or also known as lipstick lines to get more smooth. After the injection of Restylane silk, the results last for about anywhere from a minimum of 6 months to a maximum of 12 months.

Restylane Lyft is majorly used to increase the volume of the cheeks. Restylane Lyft is a very popular filler because it not only increases volume in the cheeks but it also corrects the nasolabial folds that emerge from the outer corner of the nose regions to the outer corners of the mouth regions and the hands as well.

Restylane Lyft is made of a gel that is thicker in consistency as compared to gels used in another type of Restylane. The thick gel contains larger particles. The reason behind that is to fill the deep wrinkles. The results of Restylane Lyft last for about anywhere from a minimum of 6 months to a maximum of 18 months.

Restylane kysse is another type of Restylane that is quite popular because it looks natural unlike other types of Restylane which look contrived and obvious. Apart from that, Restylane kysse not only provides volume but flexible movements as well.

The major reason why most people choose Restylane kysse over all other types of Restylane is that with this Restylane the person does not lose his or her ability or the flexibility to move facial parts, especially lips. After the Restylane kysse is injected, its results can last about anywhere from a minimum of 1 year to a maximum of 3 years. 

Restylane define is majorly used for laugh lines that are deeper than average such as the marionette lines that are caused around the area of the chin. These deeper nasolabial folds can be developed because of the results of the aging process and loss in volume. Most importantly, Restylane defyne provides natural-looking results rather than making it obvious. The results of Restylane defyne generally last for about 6 months to 12 months.

Why Does Restylane Last That Long?

The life expectancy of Restylane generally depends on 4 factors. The 4 factors could be the type of Restylane you choose, how much Restylane is injected, where it is used, and how quickly your body metabolizes the Restylane material.

Apart from these factors, the experience of your dermatologist also determines the time for how long the Restylane will last. It is quite obvious that if your dermatologist is experienced then the surgery would be performed with more precision and accuracy. Thus as a result the Restylane would also last for a longer duration of time. 

Conclusion

If the metabolism of the body is good then it would not react with the Restylane and as a result, the life expectancy of Restylane increases as well. If this does not happen then Restylane can cause multiple side effects such as skin discoloration, infection, lumps, severe swelling, skin necrosis, or wounds as well. Thus it is quite important to know what Restylane filler you are using and if it would suit your metabolism or not.
