Our compassionate medical specialists have the knowledge, training, and experience to deliver consistent, effective results. If you’re concerned about moderate to severe wrinkles and lines, hollow-looking cheeks/midface area, or lips affected by age-related volume loss, you may be wondering about the options for your facial rejuvenation plan.
One option comes from pharmaceutical maker Galderma in the form of Restylane, which offers three different treatments that can address the aforementioned issues:
- Restylane Classic
- Restylane Lyft
- Restylane Silk
What Is Restylane?
Each Restylane filler is composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance found in the body that helps hydrate the skin and keep it supple and full. Through the skill of our medical specialists, the clear smooth gel is delivered precisely into the targeted area to help restore your skin’s moisture and volume.
Restylane filler treatments are formulated with the patented NASHA technology (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid), which, simply put, features a unique particle size in each filler gel for a tailored treatment that fits your unique needs.
- Smaller particles for detailed shaping and improvement for fine lines
- Medium-sized particles address moderate to severe wrinkles and folds
- Larger particles deliver more volume to depleted, sagging skin and help minimize severe wrinkles
Restylane Classic features larger particles to lift and volumize skin affected by moderate to severe wrinkles and lines.
What Is Restylane Lyft?
Known previously as Perlane, this is the first filler that was FDA-approved for augmenting hollow cheeks that have lost their shape due to the loss of natural fat.
Since it’s formulated with larger particles, Restylane Lyft also helps correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds.
What Is Restylane Silk?
Aging causes fine vertical lines to develop around the mouth and lips, which leads to lost fullness and shape.
Restylane Silk uses smaller particles for the following natural-looking results:
- Precise definition of the cupid’s bow, the center of the upper lip
- Added contour and uplift to the corner of the mouth
- Detailed effects that restore lost symmetry to the mouth/lips
- Subtle volume
toboth upper and lower lip for better shapeliness
Restylane Side Effects
Restylane is well tolerated and causes few side effects, which are usually mild and often subside in 10-14 days, although your results may vary based on your response to treatment and the number of injections received.
- Pain or soreness

Frequently Asked Questions about Restylane Treatments
Q: How long do the effects last?
A: It varies, and your results may be different, but for nasolabial folds, the effects are clinically proven to last up to 6 months. For correction of the midface/cheek area, the effects can last as long as 12 months.
Q: Will Restylane make me look “done?”
A: A major advantage of Restylane over other cosmetic treatments, including compared to other dermal fillers, is that the improvement is gradual, resulting in subtle effects that look natural.
The filler treatment is so effective that your facial expressions will not be affected. View our before and after photo gallery to see excellent results from our patients.
Q: I don’t really like needles – is a Restylane treatment painful?
A: We understand your concerns and want your experience to be as painless and comfortable as possible.
At Alchemy 43, we administer filler treatments using ultrafine needles, which many patients say feels less painful than a pinprick. However, for some patients, needles cause considerable anxiety, so a topical numbing agent can be applied.
Moreover, because the lips are so delicate and sensitive, a local anesthetic is often administered to make your session more tolerable.
Speak with your medical specialist if you have concerns so that your experience is as pleasant as possible. View our Menu of Services to see the other facial rejuvenation treatments we offer.
Q: I have a busy schedule – how much downtime will I have?
A: We know our West Los Angeles patients don’t have time to waste, so you will be happy to know that Restylane treatments will not throw you off your schedule. Although results may vary, you can usually go right back to your normal day. We do recommend avoiding the sun and not exerting yourself too much during the first 24-48 hours.
A treatment session won’t significantly affect your schedule, either, as one session usually lasts an hour or less, depending on the number of injections you receive as well as on the area(s) you’re having treated.
Q: How soon will I notice results?
A: You could notice results instantly, though this varies for each patient. Otherwise, improvement continues for the following 6-8 weeks as the body adjusts to treatment. This gradual enhancement helps the results look more natural.
