Define the way you look with the Restylane filler range
The original hyaluronic acid filler to help you achieve the look you want.
Restylane was the original and first hyaluronic acid filler to be approved by the FDA more than 20 years ago. With a wide and versatile range of products, it addresses multiple facial concerns related to volume, contour and wrinkles.
After years of honing his injection technique from the region and beyond, Dr. Ng considers Restylane filler essential to achieve natural looking results for facial sculpting in conjunction with other medical aesthetic procedures.
what is restylane?
Restylane filler is brand of hyaluronic acid injection treatments used to reduce wrinkles, restore volume and enhance facial contours.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural and integral part of your skin provides hydration, fullness and elasticity. Over time, we lose HA from the ageing process, making wrinkles, facial volume loss and loss of facial definition more noticeable.
You may find that your cheeks and undereye hollows are more apparent or laugh lines prominent. Restylane filler treatment diminishes the signs of ageing by restoring volume, improving the appearance of wrinkles and skin folds.
what causes ageing
Ageing starts from our late 20s and is influenced by both intrinsic (genetics and natural ageing) and extrinsic factors that include:
- UV radiation
With the passage of time, the varied layers of the face changes, affecting skin, muscle, fat and bony tissue. It is a known fact that we lose collagen, elastin and associated supporting structures in the skin as we age. Restylane fillers mitigates the signs of ageing by replenishing HA to restore volume and soften your wrinkles.
Who is restylane suitable for?
- Men or women seeking aesthetic goals of facial volume restoration and/or softening the appearance of wrinkles and skin folds above 21 years of age.
- You must be in good general health without multiple allergies.

which restylane product should i choose?
The Restylane filler portfolio emcompasses a wide range of product that has different characteristics to meet your unique needs. Basically, HA fillers are engineered according to their gel viscosity (how firm or soft the gel is). Firmer HA fillers provide a more firmer support and gives extra projection for facial contouring (e.g. cheeks and chin). On the other hand, softer HA fillers offers flexible support for more dynamic areas of the face such as the lips and undereye region.
For the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It is useful to plump up your lips.
Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine is for deep implantation into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and for cheek augmentation and for the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies. Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine is also indicated for injection into the dorsal hand to correct volume loss.
Restylane® Kysse is for lip augmentation and for correction of upper perioral wrinkles.
Restylane® Defyne is for the correction of moderate to severe deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It is also a good choice for chin augmentation.
For the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
For the improvement of infraorbital hollowing (undereye hollowing).
how is the restylane filler procedure done?
After a consultation and a facial assessment to meet your aesthetic goals, we will decide on the type of HA fillers, the number of syringes to be used and complementary procedures we can do at the same time. During the consultation, it is important to inform your doctor if you are on any medication, have any underlying medical conditions or drug allergies.
Your skin is cleansed of make up, oil and debris with an anti-septic solution. Numbing cream may be provided to improve your comfort throughout the procedure. Most Restylane filler products have lidocaine, which is a local anaesthetic incorporated into the filler making it virtually painless.
Based on your unique facial anatomy and aesthetic goals, the doctor will carefully inject the fillers to restore facial volume, improve facial volume and reduce wrinkles.
what to expect after your procedure
Everyone will respond differently to restylane filler procedure. However, recovery is pretty quick for the majority of patients with some expected swelling that can last a couple of days.
Some common side effects include:
- Lump formation
- Itching at the injection site
These will depend on the area injected. Redness, swelling and bruising may last up to a week for nasolabial fold injections while lip injections may take at least 2 weeks to resolve. You are advised to stay out of the sun, avoid strenuous activity, alcohol and facial massages right after your procedure.
what other procedures can be done together?
When considering facial aesthetic enhancements, a multi faceted approach with a view that skin ageing is multi-layered will give the best results. Dr.Ng believes in personalizing treatments according to your unique needs with non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments such as:
Botulinum Toxin Injections
Neuromodulating injection treatments (e.g. Dysport, Botox, Xeomin) can help relax wrinkles on forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet due to overactive muscles.
Using deeply focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen deep within your skin for skin tightening and lifting.
Lift sagging skin and rejuvenate aged skin with bio-compatible thread lift procedure via collagen synthesis.
