Aura offers moderate to severe wrinkle correction using the Restylane® family of products. The Restylane® family of products is a brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers which include Restylane, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Lyft, Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne. Each is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Each Restylane® product is designed for a specific purpose.
Aura’s physicians and trained medical injectors, experts in facial aesthetics and cosmetic injectables, provide free consultations to evaluate which Restylane® product is right for you.
Restylane® is a crystal-clear biodegradable gel that is comprised of hyaluronic acid that has been slightly modified to last longer than the body’s natural hyaluronic acid. It’s produced by a biotechnical process and is injected into the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane® can be injected anywhere in the face to fill wrinkles or acne scars. For fuller lips or lip augmentation, Restylane® is the preferred filler. Furthermore, hylauronic acid is naturally occurring in the body and no allergy testing is required. Restylane® treatments can be performed immediately.
Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip augmentation and smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth. It is composed of a gel that is smaller and smoother than other Restylane® products, resulting in a softer, more precise result. This is ideal for restoring or enhancing the lips. Silk is administered via an ultrafine needle, which is designed for improved accuracy and precision.
Restylane® Lyft is approved for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies, as well as the treatment of moderate to severe facial folds, such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines). Restylane® Lyft provides structure and support to help create a more youthful appearance. Restylane® Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler with the ability to provide fullness to the cheeks, as well as restore lost volume in the midface area.
Restylane® Refyne is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler that integrates with your skin to help smooth out and soften the lines that run alongside the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corner of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines). Restylane® Refyne helps restore a more natural look to your face while allowing you to maintain your facial expressions when you’re smiling, frowning and even when you’re puckering up.
Restylane® Defyne is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler that helps smooth out deeper lines around your mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Restylane® Defyne helps restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance while allowing you to maintain your natural facial expressions.
How Does It Work?
Restylane® products are a crystal-clear biodegradable gel that is comprised of hyaluronic acid and is injected by a physician or medical professional to replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (nasolabial folds and marionette lines), add volume to the lips, and provide a midface rejuvenation by adding fullness to the cheeks.
Collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are the binding materials that provide volume and give a youthful appearance to the skin. Treatment with the Restylane® family of products helps to restore this lost volume and provides long lasting natural looking results.

What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Restylane® products are used to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles in the face and used to enhance the lips. During the treatment, each patient can expect the following:
- Treatments are performed in the privacy and comfort of Aura Skin Spa, by an experienced medical professional.
- Aura may provide topical lidocaine prior to the treatment.
- Restylane®products are administered via an injection process.
- The procedure typically takes 30 minutes or longer to perform. This is dependent on the RRestylane®product and amount that is being used during each treatment.
- Some patients can return immediately to work or resume their normal daily activities. Depending on the area being treated or the amount of product used, we recommend returning home after the procedure.
- Immediately, you will start to see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines where the Restylane® products were administered.
- The treatment site may become swollen and red and may persist for several hours to several days. We recommend ice to reduce swelling.
- Results with Restylane® products can last up to six months and some may last longer depending on the Restylane® product used. Results vary.
