I had my first injection of Restylane 2 weeks ago to nasal labial folds and marionette lines. Do 1ml and 2ml syringes of Restylane have similar appearance or are different product amounts color coded? I have seen both pink and blue tips in pictures. My aesthetician used a pink tip single syringe. She said it was a 2 ml Restylane special? I was never shown the box or bottle. I do not see much difference in my before and after pics.

Are boxes different for 1ml and 2ml Restylane
The boxes these come in are the same color - royal blue - except on the end one says 1ml and the other 2ml. The 2ml box itself is also a TINY bit taller (as in less than .25 inches taller). Inside the box the sleeves look the same except the 2ml comes with 3 needles with red tips and the 1ml comes with 2 needles with red tips. The 2ml syringe is also obviously larger (thicker around) because it has twice as much solution in it. Personally I don't always use the needles that any syringe comes with, so that could easily explain the differences in some photos you've seen.
