Why Volumize?
Galderma and Restylane, Fill, Defyne and Volumize treatments

Why volumize with RESTYLANE®?  

The natural volume in the cheeks and lips creates the softness and roundness that is associated with a young and healthy appearance. As we grow older, we may lose some of the volume, leading to flatter cheeks and sagging skin. You may also have genetic reasons, or your own personal desires, for wanting to add volume or soften your facial features, such as thin lips or undefined lips. 

Restylane® VOLYME™ and Restylane® KYSSE™ are soft and flexible, so that your face not only looks beautiful at rest but also when you smile and talk.1  Still, they are firm enough to give the right tissue support and buoyancy so that they retain volume and shape over time. 

Treatments with Restylane® VOLYME™ last up to at least 18 months.2 Treatments with Restylane® KYSSE™ last up to at least 1 year.3

Treatment areas

Restylane® VOLYME™ and Restylane® KYSSE™ treatment areas

Restylane® VOLYME™ and Restylane® KYSSE™ are dermal fillers that create volume and shape for a balanced look that suits your own desires. Areas that can be treated include cheeks and temples with Restylane® VOLYME™ and the lips with Restylane® KYSSE™.

“Lips have always been in focus and there have been different ideals though the years. What women want today is definitely a more natural result.”

Your RESTYLANE® treatment

A treatment with RESTYLANE® takes approximately 15-45 minutes, depending on the area that will be treated. Sometimes you might need a touch-up treatment about two weeks after the initial treatment to optimize your results. Most RESTYLANE® fillers contain a local anesthetic, lidocaine, that takes away most of the discomfort during treatment. 

Immediately after your dermal filler treatment, you may experience some post-treatment side effects, such as redness, swelling, pain, bruising or tenderness at the treatment site. These side effects usually disappear within one week after injection. Though fillers are minimally invasive, they still carry some risks. Before the treatment, you should discuss all possible risks and benefits with your healthcare practitioner.

RESTYLANE® gives you long-lasting but non-permanent results, meaning that you can continuously refine your looks. 

How it works

How it works

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that has a unique ability to bind water. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our bodies and in all layers of our skin. It keeps your body tissues soft, hydrated and flexible. However, as we age, the body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid lessens, leading to dry and thinner skin.  

Natural hyaluronic acid in the body degrades quickly, in one to two days. To make the hyaluronic acid in Restylane® VOLYME™ and Restylane® KYSSE™ last longer—for up to at least a year for Restylane® KYSSE™4 and up to at least 18 months for Restylane® VOLYME™5 Galderma has used stabilization technologies that delay degradation. Restylane® VOLYME™ and Restylane® KYSSE™ contain hyaluronic acid gels with a consistency that is soft but yet firm enough to retain volume and shape in for example the cheeks and lips. 

RESTYLANE® was the first ever non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid filler, when it was launched in 1996. It has become the gold standard of dermal fillers and is the injectable filler that every other filler brand is compared with.

A treatment with Restylane does not take long. Depending on the area and indication, it takes approximately 15-45 minutes. A touch-up treatment is sometimes performed approximately two weeks after the initial treatment to optimize the results.

Some people may experience mild discomfort. All Restylane fillers contain an integrated local anaesthetic, lidocaine, to provide you with a more comfortable treatment experience. You and your healthcare practitioner may decide whether additional pain relief is needed.

Ask your healthcare practitioner if you will benefit from treatment with any of the hyaluronic acid products within the Restylane range. It is important when discussing your medical history to tell your practitioner everything, including all medicines that you are taking, any present and past allergies and their seriousness, and all current or past medical conditions you have had. Your practitioner will discuss potential side effects from the injection of Restylane and how serious they may be. You should also inform your practitioner if you have received previous aesthetic treatments, both surgical and non-surgical. 

Patients with a known allergy to hyaluronic acid based products should not undergo treatment, nor should patients with bleeding disorders, or active skin disease such as inflammation, infection or tumors in or near the area to be treated. Discuss contraindications, warnings and precautions with your healthcare practitioner before Restylane filler treatments.

The Restylane products have not been tested in pregnant or breastfeeding women and is therefore not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

After the treatment you will receive post-treatment guidelines. It is normal to experience some post-treatment discomfort, such as redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the treatment site. These side effects generally disappear within one week after injection.

Other potential side effects can occur with dermal fillers based on hyaluronic acid. You should discuss the potential treatment risks with your healthcare practitioner. Following treatment, there is sometimes a need for a touch-up treatment to achieve an optimal result.
