Restylane®, Restylane Silk® and Restylane Lyft® are popular dermal fillers used to replenish volume, contour the face, eliminate fine lines and soften wrinkles and folds. All are hyaluronic acid based products that are composed of a naturally occurring sugar in our skin that provides support and fullness. Over time, the collagen and elastin in our skin breakdown, resulting in volume loss or hollowing of the face. Our folds and jowls become more prominent as volume loss and gravity shifts the cheeks downward. Youthful faces are full (think less dramatic version of baby fat), and dermal fillers help restore the hollowing that occurs over time by restoring youthful contours.
Most commonly treated areas include the nasolabial folds, lips, and cheeks. One of our favorite areas to use Restylane is in the under-eye circles. It can be a dramatic instant effect that makes you look much more rested.
Finally, a filler that can help you achieve your ideal smile. Restylane Silk® is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years of age and older.
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk® is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
