What Are Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are medical grade materials that are injected into your skin in order to repair wrinkles, lines, and scars. They are an excellent method of restoring facial volume. You will notice the results of your filler treatment almost immediately. They are minimally-invasive, cause minimal discomfort, and are performed in Dr. Peña’s office with no downtime. Any injection may cause temporary bruising and swelling!

What are the Restylane® Family of Products?
The Restylane® family of injectable gels are FDA-approved products specially manufactured to address various age-related concerns. Facial concerns such as, wrinkles and folds, volume loss, fine lines and other age-related face and hand concerns. While the most common areas of interest for facial rejuvenation injectables are nasolabial folds, there are other advanced Restylane® products that can target a person’s non-surgical facial rejuvenation goals. The collection of Restylane® products include: Restylane-L®,Restylane® Defyne, Restylane® Lyft, Restylane® Refyne, Restylane® Silk, and Restylane® Kysse.
What is Restylane® Defyne?
As we age, our face loses volume and our skin loses elasticity which produces lines that run from your nose towards the corner of your mouth. Restylane® Defyne is specifically designed to smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds) and those moderate-to-severe smile lines. This filler is not only made up of hyaluronic acid (HA) but also the innovative XpresHAn Technology™ which cross-links the gel to help support your natural movement and facial expressions.
Restylane® Defyne has a less flexible formulation than Restylane® Refyne, and for that reason it provides the additional volume and support needed to treat severe wrinkles and folds while still allowing you to move effortlessly with facial expressions!
What is Restylane® Lyft?
Restylane® Lyft is an exciting hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. It is the first and only HA filler that is FDA-approved to address your face and hands volumizing and wrinkle reduction goals. This dermal filler produces natural-looking volume in your cheeks, midface area, and hands resulting in more youthful-looking appearance. An added plus is that you can rejuvenate your face and hands in just one appointment.
What is Restylane® Refyne?
Restylane® Refyne is specifically designed to smooth out those irritating mild-to-moderate laugh lines (nasolabial folds) lines) and wrinkles. This filler uses hyaluronic acid (HA) as it’s active ingredient with the added, XpresHAn Technology™ which cross-links the gel to help support your natural facial expressions and movement.
The primary difference between Restylane® Defyne and Restylane® Refyne is that Refyne is used for mild-to-moderate wrinkles and general lines, while Restylane® Defyne treats moderate-to-severe smile lines.
What is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is an injectable product that is designed for smoothing wrinkles and lines around the mouth, also known as ‘smoker’s lines.’ Restylane® Silk is also designed to augment the lips, making them appear fuller and more youthful. It is a smooth injectable that is formulated using a high concentration of cross-linked chains of HA. The HA particles are also smaller and smoother than those used in other Restylane® products. Because of the small size of the particles, the product can absorb water after it has been placed causing 24-48 hours of mild-to-moderate swelling!
Dr. Peña also offers Restylane-L® for tear toughs and Restylane® Kysse™ for lip enhancements at his Peña Plastic Surgery practice which is located in Naples, FL.
