Understanding Restylane®: A Guide to Contour, Lyft, Kysse, & Defyne

As we traverse the journey of life, our faces are a testament to the passing of time and the elements that shape our world. From the relentless force of gravity to the harshness of the sun, our once smooth and supple skin bears the brunt of it all. The countless expressions that color our lives, like smiling, chewing, and squinting, etch themselves into our faces like the gentle folding of paper. However, with time, the collagen that gave our skin its buoyancy and radiance gradually fades away, leaving behind a trail of laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, and facial creases in the wake of our experiences.

But wrinkles needn’t be a permanent reminder of our age. If you’re looking for a quick and effective way to restore your skin’s youthfulness, dermal fillers are a great option. These FDA-approved injectables can smooth out deep lines and facial creases, creating a more youthful appearance without the need for invasive treatments like surgery. In fact, over a million people each year turn to dermal fillers to help restore their skin’s volume and radiance.


One such dermal filler is Restylane, an injectable gel made up of Hyaluronic acid – a natural sugar that helps our skin maintain its volume. When injected into the skin, Hyaluronic acid molecules bond with the body’s natural stores of water, giving the skin a boost in volume and a radiant, youthful appearance. And because Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the body, Restylane is generally considered safe, making it a great option for those looking to restore their skin’s youthful glow.

Restylane® we offer at Beauty from Ashes Aesthetics

Let’s take a closer look at the various types of Restylane® available, each designed to target specific areas of the face, and all of which we offer at Beauty from Ashes Aesthetics.


Restylane Defyne is a dermal filler that works wonders in restoring a youthful radiance to your skin. Much like its sister product, Restylane Refyne, Defyne is powered by the revolutionary XpresHAn technology that delivers outstanding results. While both products have similar mechanisms, functions, and benefits, Defyne has a specific advantage when it comes to treating Nasolabial Folds, also known as laugh lines.

XpresHAn technology, which is used in both Refyne and Defyne, is a breakthrough formula that allows for the natural movement and expression of your face while providing volume and lifts to your skin. With this technology, you can enjoy a more youthful appearance without compromising on your natural expressions. The difference with Defyne, however, is that it is specifically designed to tackle deeper creases, making it more effective in treating laugh lines.

By using hyaluronic acid – a natural sugar found in the body that gives the skin its volume and elasticity -, Defyne is able to create a smooth and natural look that lasts. And because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance, it is safe and well-tolerated by most people. With Defyne, you can enjoy a rejuvenated and youthful appearance for up to 12 months.

So if you’re looking for a solution to those pesky laugh lines, Restylane Defyne may be just what you need. Its XpresHAn technology and targeted approach to deep creases make it a top choice among those seeking a natural-looking, long-lasting solution to the signs of aging.

Restylane Lyft:

Restylane Lyft is the latest addition to the Restylane family, previously known as Perlane. This versatile dermal filler is designed to provide support and volume to the facial features, particularly in the mid-face region. While it is primarily used to augment the cheeks, its lifting properties make it an excellent choice for a range of facial rejuvenation needs.

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, and our facial features can begin to sag or droop. Restylane Lyft offers a solution by providing a natural-looking lift to the mid-face, restoring your youthful appearance and confidence. By using hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, Lyft is able to provide long-lasting results without the need for invasive procedures.

Whether you’re looking to enhance your cheekbones or simply restore your facial contours, Restylane Lyft can help.
