Restylane vs. Restylane-L - Are Quantities the Same?

Thanks for your replies. Can you tell me if the syringes containing the Restylane and the Restylane-L are different size syringes (product quantity)? I was wondering about the quantity in each syringe, considering that the Lidocaine added to the Restylane-L would need a bigger syringe, OR do you get less Restylane in the lidocaine syringes? Just wondered because the price is the same for both.

Actually, the Restylane syringes contain 1.15 cc vs 0.8 cc of Juvederm

One of the reasons that I continue to prefer Restylane for my patients is that it comes in a larger syringe at about the same price as Juvederm.  What this means is that you get about 27% more Restylane in one syringe than a Juvederm syringe.  You can go with the non-lidocaine Restylane if you wish, but the amount of Restylane not in it is very minimal and you are already getting a great amount more than if you were to use Juvederm.  Good luck!

The L is makes it hurt less, so it is better.

The amount of lidocaine added is very small, but there is indeed a tiny bit less of the HA. Interestingly, the competition, Juvederm XC uses powered lidocaine so the volume is the same as the old, non-lidocaine product. The Restylane L has 1.0cc; Juvederm XC as of now, is 0.08cc.

Restylane L vs Restylane

+2

The amount of lidocaine in Restylane L is essentially the same as the regular form.  The injection is much less painful and as a result we essentially only use the newer Restylane L.

Restylane with or without lidocaine

The amount of restylane in the syringes is the same the "L" has some lidocain in it to take the edge of the injection.

Yes same volume

Restylane-L is simply Restylane with add lidocaine to reduce the sting of treatment.  The volume effect is no different.  The numbing provide makes a big difference and makes it possible to have lip edge treatment without pre-blocking the lips with local anesthesia.  You just can't be too numb-comfort make a great treatment even better.

Restylane and Restylane-L have the same amount per syringe.

+2

The addition of lidocaine to Restylane has been extremely helpful in reducing or eliminating discomfort from injections when the proper techniques are used. Unlike injectable lidocaine that comes in a vial, in Restylane it is added in powdered form so the actual volume is trivial and doesn't affect the amount of filler.

Restylane With Lidocaine vs. Restylane

+2

Hi SS.  While our patients much prefer the Restylane L with Lidocaine, the amount of product in each syringe is the same because the amount of the lidocaine is insignificant.  We also charge the same for both syringes.

Good luck with your procedures.

You get the same amount of filler in Restylane-L and Restylane

+2

Restylane and Restylane-L come in the same size syringe. The good news is that you get the same volume of filler in each.  The reason that this is possible is that the Lidocaine is mixed into the filler in a powder form.  The powder takes up virtually no room.  Think of it like putting sugar in your coffee.

Hope that helps.

Restylane vs. Restylane-L (Galderma / Medicis)

+1

The amount of Restylane in both "Restylane" and "Restylane-L" is the same. Lidocaine has been added -as powder- in the same filler dose/syringe. Injections with Restylane-L will be more comfortable (less painful).

Restylane L

+1

In theory there is slightly less Restylane in a 1.0 cc Restylane L than in Restylane without Lidocaine. Practically speaking this is neglible.
