What Is Restylane Volyme?

Dr. Shridharani is among the first to offer Volyme at his office in NYC as part of a clinical trial. Volyme is a hyaluronic acid gel dermal filler and part of the Restylane family of dermal fillers. It was created to complement Restylane Refyne and Defyne. Abroad, Volyme is part of the Restylane Emervel family. This wonderful dermal filler replaces a natural component of the skin that is lost with aging in order to reverse the signs of aging such as fat loss and bone resorption. Volyme is placed deep under the skin to produce contour changes of the jaw, chin, and cheeks in order to restore a more youthful appearance.

What can Restylane Refyne, Defyne and Volyme help treat?

The Restylane Emervel Collection with Dr. Shridharani helps smooth away facial lines and wrinkles and defines and restores volume for immediate, noticeable, yet natural-looking results. While genetics, facial expressions, diet and sun exposure can age one’s facial appearance, it is also caused by changes in facial structure and the gradual loss of facial volume and HA, a natural substance in the body that helps the skin maintain moisture. Over time, we make less HA and this diminishes skin volume and elasticity, making the visible signs of aging more noticeable. The good news is that HA can be restored with Restylane Emervel products, a unique innovation of non-permanent dermal fillers that can help improve the shape of your face by gently adding subtle volume and definition to the cheeks, lips, or other facial features to give a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Where can Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne and Restylane Volyme (Emervel) be used in the lower face?

Jaw Line Contouring – The Restylane range of dermal filler products can be used to enhance the contours of your face and accentuate a more distinct jaw line to make your chin more prominent or improve jowls. Jaw line contouring with the Restylane fillers can help improve facial imbalances and improve the contours and facial shape.

Lip Volume – Restylane Lips is designed for smooth integration into the delicate lip tissue to create beautiful looking lips that are soft and natural.

Lip Line – A defined lip line accentuates your lips without changing your appearance too much. Restylane gives your lip enhancement a natural and smooth result.

Chin – Enhance the contours of your face by accentuating a more distinct jaw line or just correct a small facial imbalance that bothers you.

Smokers Lines/Kisser Lines – Even if you have never smoked you might still have small lines around your mouth. With Restylane you can easily smooth out those lines to help your smile shine through.

Nose to Mouth Lines – Prominent lines from your nose to your mouth can give you an angry look. If you want to remove those lines, Restylane is a safe and natural way to lift away those lines.

Smile Lines – Smiling often might have given you unwanted lines on your cheeks. By injecting Restylane you can smooth out those lines in a natural way. Keep smiling and let Restylane take away those unwanted lines.

Sad Mouth Corners – Are you happy and smiling – but your mouth is saying something else? Small injections of Restylane can lift your sad mouth corners and bring back your happy smile again.

Defyne at LUXURGERY in New York with Dr. Shridharani is meant to give a more natural-looking result. Results can last up to 12 months due to the new type of hyaluronic acid in the filler gel. The new technology is called XpresHAn—and it allows the hyaluronic acid gel to flex within the skin as you move your face. So whether you’re smiling, frowning, or wrinkling your face any which way, the result looks soft and natural, not puffy or stiff. XpresHAn Technology customizes the degree of HA crosslinking in each product, resulting in gels with a range of flexibility and support characteristics for different patient needs. Restylane Refyne is designed to be less flexible and provide additional support.

What Causes Wrinkles?

Wrinkles in the skin have many causes. Fine wrinkles are a product of the natural loss of collagen and elastin in the epidermis and dermis as we age. Deeper wrinkles occur when the face loses volume and sags, or when muscles continually act on skin and create a crease. Fine wrinkles and deeper wrinkles are treated differently and only a specialty trained board-certified plastic surgeon in NYC like Dr. Shridharani will be able to offer you the full range of possible treatments, from various injections to surgical corrections

How Long Does The Procedure Take?

It takes around 15-30 minutes for a treatment depending on how many areas need to be treated.

Does Restylane Volyme, Refyne or Defyne Hurt?

Most patients find the discomfort to be like a slight bee sting for about 5-10 seconds. All Restylane products (except for Emervel touch) contain a local anesthetic for improved comfort. Topical anesthesia lotion and ice can be applied to the skin prior to injection as well.

How to Prepare for Restylane Injections

There is very little to prepare for in order to have dermal fillers placed. As with every treatment it is best to avoid any sun injury immediately before the treatment and to avoid irritating and harsh treatments while you recover.

What Should I Expect for the Recovery with Restylane Products?

Part of the way hyaluronic acid dermal fillers work is to draw in water, what that means is that the treated area will swell and may become pink for a few days before it starts to go down. The final result is seen after 1-2 weeks once all the swelling resolves, at Manhattan’s Upper East Side based, LUXURGERY, we always ensure our patients have a post treatment appointment during this time frame to confirm they’ve achieved the goals they desire.

How Long Do Restylane Emervel Products Last?

Restylane with Dr. S lasts anywhere from 9-15 months depending on the patient’s metabolism of the product.

Restylane Refyne, Defyne & Volyme FAQ

Q: What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid or HA, is a naturally occurring substance found in most living organisms. It plays an important part in the human skin, providing it with elasticity, volume and the ability to transfer nutrients between cells. As we age our body produces less hyaluronic acid contributing to a loss of facial volume and the formation of lines, static wrinkles and folds. This results in wrinkles, folds, and a dehydrated ‘crêpey’ look that can make you appear tired and older than your years. This volume loss can be replaced with dermal fillers such as the Restylane range, which are specifically designed to work at the different layers of the skin and replace or restore facial volume. Hyaluronic Acid or HA is an important ingredient in keeping our skin looking its best.
