Restylane® Family

the restylane family of fillers IN VILLANOVA, COLLEGEVILLE & CHESTERBROOK PA

The scientists at Galderma have focused on developing a line of fillers that meet every niche need in the dermal filler world. They understand that not every set of lips, cheeks, or eyes is created equal, and by investing in quality products in a wide array of choices they ensure that each individual patient’s anti-aging needs can be met. Utilizing these products (and others) the aesthetic team at Bryn Mawr Dermatology will help you select your solution to pronounced marionette lines, undefined, deflated lips, or cheeks that have travelled a little too far south. Every face ages a little differently, but BMD is here to help you revive some of your youthful brilliance.


A common misconception that we often run into is patients thinking that products like Restylane® fillers and neuromodulators like Botox®/Dysport®/Xeomin® produce the same results. These two types of anti-aging tools could not be more different.

How restylane® Works

The basic technology behind the majority of fillers on the market is the same. Start by synthesizing the hyaluronic acid molecule that is found naturally in your body’s skin, eyes, and joints and then refine it into a stable substance that can be sterilely injected under the skin. Next add special qualities to each product that make it uniquely appropriate for different facial structures based on pliability, elasticity and density. By using this recipe, Restylane products provide a solution that is three-fold: the filler product itself adds volume to the area it is injected; it then attracts water to the site to enhance the effect; and in the long term, the disruption of the tissue causes your own body to produce more collagen and elastin resulting in plumper, smoother skin.

The Restylane® difference comes in the form of their patented XpresHAn Technology™ for flexible movement and natural-looking volume. In practical terms, this means that their injectables are designed to mimic your facial expressions so that while your friends and family might notice that you looked refreshed, you are the only one who knows you’ve been to see our aesthetic team. The selection of Restylane® products include Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Kysse, Restylane® Refyne, Restylane® Defyne, and Restylane® Contour. The products are aptly named to reflect their specific purpose and have all been put through rigorous testing to ensure their safety and efficacy. 92% of Restylane® realself reviewers rate their products as “worth it” and 95% of subjects in a clinical study with Restylane® reported that they still saw improvements 18 months after their initial treatment. In the hands of expert injectors you can anticipate dermal filler results that are subtle but notable and sustainable (with a little touch up here and there).


The doctors and PAs who specialize in dermal filler injections at Bryn Mawr Dermatology will take the time to assess your concerns and recommend the perfect treatment plan to achieve your goals. Oftentimes a combination of products and procedures is best, and the options can definitely seem daunting. Rest assured that with dozens of cumulative years of experience our injectors will be able to select from the many tools they have access to and implement them to best suit your needs. They will use techniques that have been on the market for decades, and new tricks they have picked up at the many injector training courses they have attended and hosted. Your expert will assess your face as a whole to ensure that you achieve optimal balance and symmetry, and will make sure to focus on your personal goals. At Bryn Mawr Dermatology Dr. Christine Stanko and her team are thoroughly invested in each of their patients and creating the most natural results possible. We always want you to look like you, just a slightly younger, fresher, better-rested you. Don’t let the fear of the unknown stop you from achieving your goals.


Galderma has created the most diverse collection of fillers on the market, and for good reason: their products help us design WOW! results for our diverse patient population. No matter your age, gender or facial anomaly that is causing angst, we have the right tool for the job.

PUCKER UP WITH Restylane® Kysse and Restylane® Silk!

Galderma released Kysse in 2020 as the first dermal filler designed for lips and lips alone. Nothing invites you in like a radiant smile glowing with confidence, and Restylane® Kysse is a sure-fire way to both frame your smile and make you more confident to show it off. The patented XpresHAn Technology found in Restylane® Kysse was designed for flexible movement and natural-looking volume that lasts up to a year. The body of the lip will appear smoother with fewer cross-hatch and vertical lines, and have a naturally enhanced color once injected by a professional at Bryn Mawr Dermatology. We are also able to correct asymmetry and define the borders of the lip to enhance its shape. Let’s not forget those pesky lines that form around the mouth from years of pursing, chewing, oohing, ahhing, grinning and grimacing. These tiny crevices become more noticeable with age, although a genetic predisposition plays a large factor as well. The product to smooth those lines and leave your friends wondering how you stay so young is Restylane® Silk.


Over time, the scaffolding of your face begins to deteriorate. The fat, muscle and underlying bone lose integrity and volume causing the overlying skin to sag and more prominent wrinkles to form. Restylane® Lyft is one of the BMD provider’s favorite products to help correct these signs of aging in the cheeks, midface (think deep smile lines that run from your nose to your mouth), and temples. Lyft is specifically designed to mimic the structure that you have lost and continue to look beautiful as time progresses. This hyaluronic acid (HA) filler is the first, and only of its kind to be FDA-approved to treat both your face and hands. While hands are not the first thing you see in the mirror every morning, they certainly play a big role in your life and because of that tolerate a lot of abuse. They participate in play, work and relationships, and as you age they age with you. If you would like to address thinning hands that appear skeletal due to prominent vessels and tendons ask the aesthetic authority at Bryn Mawr Dermatology if you would benefit from Restylane® Lyft to help correct those changes.

DEFY GRAVITY WITH Restylane®, Restylane® Refyne, and Restylane® Defyne.

This trio of Galderma products combat the result of lost elasticity and volume that comes with time, UV exposure and a lot of expressing yourself. The flagship HA filler Restylane® was one of the first on the market and, and is still one of the most dependable filler used to redefine how you feel about your laugh lines. It is pliant enough so that an experienced injetor can maneuver it into fine lines and creases around your nose, mouth and marionette lines (between your mouth and jaw), and structurally sound enough to create a lasting improvement in the area of your face that creates the most movement. Both Defyne and Refyne have slightly altered chemical properties than their parent product that allow them to diffuse into neighboring tissues more or less respectively. Your BMD injector will select the perfect product(s) to smooth the lines around your mouth and even touch up the smile lines that have crept up around your eyes.
