Restylane Defyne & Restylane Refyne
Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne are two fillers that are designed to give your laugh lines a pick-me-up. Formulated to act like your body’s own naturally occurring hyaluronic acid (HA), Defyne and Refyne minimize moderate to deep laugh lines while helping you maintain your natural expression during smiling, frowning or even puckering up. They use a unique XpresHAn™ technology to give you the right amount of lift with the flexibility to keep you looking natural. In fact, these are the only facial fillers that have been shown in clinical studies to help maintain natural movement and expressions.
Restylane Lyft provides a subtle, natural-looking lift to visibly “sagging” cheeks and can also precisely correct lines, folds and wrinkles on the sides of your nose and mouth. This injectable hyaluronic acid gel is highly effective and long lasting to give you just the right amount of volume and definition to your cheeks and midface area for a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane® is a clear gel formulation that adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). It can also add fullness and definition to lips in patients over 21 years, providing natural-looking and lasting results with just one treatment.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator that works with your body to help stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production. Working within the deep dermis, Sculptra helps rebuild your collagen strands to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds. Results appear gradually over time and can last up to two years.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is an injectable filler that works by immediately restoring facial volume to smooth out the signs of aging. Once injected, it works with your body to stimulate the production of your own natural collagen for results that may last a year or more in many patients.*
Belotero is a soft, cohesive gel that is specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for natural and immediate results. In addition, Belotero is administered closer to the skin surface, resulting in a more direct treatment to lines and wrinkles. Plus, it’s versatile enough to handle deep treatment areas such as the nasolabial folds, yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines.*
JUVÉDERM® XC & JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM® XC is a smooth gel filler that instantly smooths away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get even, natural-looking results that last up to a year. JUVEDERM XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can reduce unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours. Results will vary in each individual.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do dermal fillers work?
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. Using a dermal filler is a safe and effective way to replace the HA that your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. Some of our dermal fillers are even specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid.
How often should I be treated?
Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 12 to 18 months in the laugh lines (nasolabial folds) and up to six months for lip enhancements. Sublime professionals will work with you to help you establish a proper regimen.
When will I see results?
Dermal fillers instantly add volume to help restore youthful contours to your face and create fullness and definition in your lips. You’ll see results immediately following your treatment.*

Are there any reasons why I should not use products within the Restylane® family? (Contraindications)
To ensure a safe procedure, your doctor will talk to you about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. You should not use products within the Restylane family if:
- You have severe allergies with a history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis)
- You are allergic to lidocaine or to any of the gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make hyaluronic acid
- You are prone to bleeding or have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder
- Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or trying to become pregnant. The safety of these products for use during pregnancy, or in women who are breastfeeding, has not been studied
- Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are intended to treat facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane and Restylane-L are also intended for lip enhancement. Treatments in other areas of the face have not been evaluated in clinical studies.
- The safety and effectiveness of Restylane® Silk for areas other than the lips and perioral area have not been evaluated in clinical studies
- Tell your doctor if you have any history of scarring, particularly thick and stiff scars, or any pigmentation (skin color) disorders. These side effects can occur with hyaluronic acid fillers in general.
- Tell your doctor if you are planning other laser treatments or a chemical peel, as there is a possible risk of inflammation at the treatment site if these procedures are performed after treatment
- Patients who experience skin injury near the site of injection with these products may be at a higher risk for side effects
- Tell your doctor if you are on any medications to decrease your body’s immune response (immunosuppressive therapy). Using these medications may increase your risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site.
- Tell your doctor if you are using any “blood thinners” such as aspirin, warfarin, or any other medications that affect bleeding. Using these medications may increase your risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site.
- The use of these products on gel injection sites with skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infections should be postponed until healing is complete. Use of product in these areas could delay healing or make your skin problems worse.
What are the possible side effects?
The most commonly observed side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, and itching at the injection site. These are typically mild in severity and typically resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site.
One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin.
As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
To report a side effect with any of the Restylane products, please call Galderma Laboratories, L.P at 1-855-425-8722.
The Restylane family of products is available only through a licensed practitioner.
Sculptra Important Safety Information
Indication: Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems as a single regimen for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles in which deep dermal grid pattern (cross-hatch) injection technique is appropriate.
Sculptra Aesthetic should not be used by people that are allergic to any ingredient of the product or have a history of keloid formation of hypertrophic scarring. Safety has not been established in patients who are pregnant, lactating, breastfeeding, or under 18 years of age.
Sculptra Aesthetic has unique injection requirements and should only be used by a trained physician. Contour deficiencies should not be overcorrected because they are expected to gradually improve after treatment.
Sculptra Aesthetic should not be injected into the blood vessels as it may cause vascularocclusion, infarction or embolic phenomena. Use at the site of skin sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. Sculptra Aesthetic should not be injected into the red area (vermillion) of the lip or in the periorbital area.
The most common side effects after initial treatment include injection site swelling, tenderness, redness, pain, bruising, bleeding, itching and lumps. Other side effects may include small lumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, some with delayed onset with or without inflammation or skin discoloration, have also been reported.
Sculptra Aesthetic is available only through a licensed practitioner. Complete Instructions for Use are available at www.SculptraAesthetic.com
Important Safety Information For Belotero Balance
Indication: BELOTERO BALANCE® is FDA-approved for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Contraindications: BELOTERO BALANCE® should not be used in patients with severe allergies manifested by a history of anaphylaxis, with a history or presence of multiple severe allergies. BELOTERO BALANCE® contains a trace amount of gram-positive bacterial proteins, and is contraindicated in patients with a history of allergies to such material. BELOTERO BALANCE® must not be implanted into blood vessels.
Warnings: Use of BELOTERO BALANCE® at specific sites in which an active inflammatory process (skin eruptions such as cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, or hives) or infection is present should be deferred until the underlying process has been controlled. BELOTERO BALANCE® must not be injected into blood vessels of any size. Introduction of BELOTERO BALANCE® into the vasculature may occlude the vessels and can cause infarction of overlying tissue or embolization with resultant necrosis of potentially large areas of distant tissue such as the lip or the nose. Injection site responses to BELOTERO BALANCE® have been observed, consisting mainly of short-term inflammatory symptoms starting early after treatment and with 7 days duration or less.
Precautions: The safety or effectiveness of BELOTERO BALANCE® for the treatment of dermal contour defects other than nasolabial folds, such as use in the lips, has not been established in controlled clinical studies. The safety of BELOTERO BALANCE® for use during pregnancy, in breastfeeding females, or in patients under 21 years has not been established. As with all transcutaneous procedures, BELOTERO BALANCE® injection carries a risk of infection. Patients who are using substances that reduce coagulation, such as aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and warfarin may, as with any injection, experience increased bruising or bleeding at injection sites. Patients should inform their physicians if they are taking such substances. Laser treatment, chemical peeling, or any other procedure based on active dermal response performed after treatment with BELOTERO BALANCE® may increase the risk of an inflammatory reaction at the injection site. Similarly, the administration of BELOTERO BALANCE® before the skin has healed completely after such a procedure may also increase the risk of inflammatory reactions. Exposure of the treated area to excessive sun, UV lamp exposure, and extreme cold weather should be minimized until any initial swelling and redness have resolved and puncture sites have healed.
Adverse Events: The most common side effects seen after injection were swelling, bruising, redness, and hardening that resolve within one week. More rare side effects may include swelling that lasts longer, unevenness or firmness in the area injected, and as with any injection, there may be a risk of infection.
