Get Expert Guidance From Dr. Lanna Aesthetics On Which Restylane Filler Is Right For You

You want to refresh your look. You’re noticing your cheeks aren’t as full and youthful as they used to be.

But plastic surgery seems too invasive and permanent. You want subtle yet effective rejuvenation—a way to restore volume and lift to your midface while still looking natural.

That’s where Restylane cheek fillers can help.

Here at Dr. Lanna Aesthetics, cheek filler injections are one of our specialties. We use Restylane products to expertly reshape and lift the cheek area for gorgeous, natural-looking results. 

But with four main options - Restylane Lyft, Refyne, Defyne, and Kysse - how do you determine the ideal Restylane for your cheek?

Why Restylane Works Wonders for Cheeks

First, a little background about Restylane. 

Restylane is a brand of hyaluronic acid fillers, which means they add volume by absorbing water and expanding under the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that occurs naturally in our bodies, giving Restylane an excellent safety profile. 

Results are instant, and while not permanent, Restylane fillers last 6-18 months in the cheeks on average.

What makes Restylane particularly suited for the cheek area is its ability to expertly contour the midface with soft, flexible volume. The cheeks often require product that can adapt to facial movements and give structure to otherwise hollow areas. Restylane helps restore a heart-shaped face, lifted cheeks, and an overall more youthful radiance.

Now let’s get into the nitty gritty of choosing your ideal Restylane cheek filler!

Restylane Lyft - Total Cheek Rejuvenation

Restylane Lyft receives our top recommendation for complete cheek rejuvenation. 

Approved by the FDA for use in the cheeks and midface, Lyft contains hyaluronic acid particles with varying sizes that provide soft, flexible lift. The large gel particles offer support and structure, while the smaller particles smooth lines for seamless integration.

The result? Restylane Lyft excels at:

  • Plumping deflated cheeks
  • Lifting sagging skin
  • Replacing lost volume for full, prominent cheeks that appear lifted
  • Sculpting and defining the cheekbones
  • Contouring the side of the face
  • Minimizing nasolabial folds

In short, if your goal is overall cheek enhancement - from upper cheek hollowing to lower cheek sagging - Restylane Lyft addresses it all. It takes years off your looks with natural, yet noticeable rejuvenation that lasts.

Restylane Refyne - Subtle Enhancement and Wrinkle Reduction

Prefer a more delicate cheek refresh rather than dramatic plumping? Restylane Refyne may be your perfect match. 

Refyne contains stabilized hyaluronic acid gel with unique XpresHAn Technology™  that allows flexible movement under the skin. This enables Refyne to seamlessly adapt to facial expressions while gently filling lines and wrinkles.

For the cheeks, Refyne excels at:

  • Softening circles
  • Softening nasolabial folds
  • Softening other fine lines that can make us appear tired

Its smooth, flexible texture replicates the cheek’s natural bounciness for subtle enhancement. Refyne adds just the right amount of volume to delicately restore cheek fullness without drastic plumping. Its natural-looking results and wrinkle reduction create a refreshed, radiant look.

Restylane Defyne - Firmer Lift and Augmentation

Do you want to go beyond subtle enhancement and achieve firmer cheek lifting and shaping? Restylane Defyne may be the winner. 

Defyne contains the same XpresHAn Technology™ as Refyne for flexible wrinkle filling. But it utilizes larger, sturdier gel particles that offer serious lifting capacity - up to 53% more lift than Refyne!

Defyne reshapes the cheeks with its unique ability to support and lift tissue. It’s an excellent choice if you desire:

  • Enhanced cheekbone definition
  • Correction of more severe hollows/sagging
  • An overall more youthful structure

Defyne works wonderfully to lift the midface, contour the cheeks, and sculpt the face into an enviable heart or upside-down triangle shape.

Restylane Kysse - For Lip and Under-Eye Area

Last but not least is Restylane Kysse, the newest addition to the Restylane family. Kysse contains XpresHAn Technology™ like Refyne and Defyne for smooth wrinkle filling and a natural look and feel. It is specially formulated for the delicate lip and under eye areas with an ultra-soft, malleable gel.

While Kysse is not ideally suited for lifting and plumping the cheeks, it works wonders to subtly fill under eye hollows, tear troughs, and fine lines around the mouth. Kysse can beautifully complement cheek filler for a complete rejuvenation.

Which Restylane Filler is Best for My Cheeks?

As you can see, the ideal Restylane product depends on the results you wish to achieve. 

During your consultation at Dr. Lanna Aesthetics, we’ll listen to your cosmetic goals and determine which option (or options) will give you the most natural yet satisfying improvements.

In general, Restylane Lyft is ideal for subtle overall cheek volumization and lift. Restylane Defyne maximizes cheek projection and filling. And Restylane Refyne adds precision contouring and wrinkle reduction. Restylane-L completes the look by rejuvenating the delicate under-eye region.

The combination possibilities allow endless customization so you get the exact cheek enhancement you desire.

What to Expect During Cheek Filler Treatment

Wondering what it’s like to actually get cheek fillers with Restylane? Here’s an overview of what to expect:

  1. Numbing cream applied - This maximizes your comfort during the injections.
  2. Careful injection of filler - Dr. Lanna will expertly inject small amounts of the selected Restylane filler using an ultrafine needle.
  3. Massage of area - This helps the filler blend and distribute properly in the cheek tissues.
  4. Assessment and touch-up - Additional filler is added if needed to achieve the optimal improvement.
  5. Ice pack - A cold pack is applied after to minimize any swelling and soreness.

That’s it! The entire process takes less than an hour from start to finish. You’ll notice an immediate visible difference in your cheek volume. However, it can take two weeks for the area to fully heal and for the filler to properly settle.
