Restylane & Restylane Silk
Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler approved by FDA that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds including deep and superficial nasolabial folds. Restylane is the first and only cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. There is virtually no risk of animal based disease transmission or allergic reaction. Restylane lasts 3 to 6 months, which is significantly longer than collagen, so treatments are typically scheduled two to three times a year.
For a silky, smooth natural-looking smile, now there’s Restylane Silk designed specifically for lips and the lines around them. Restylane Silk is FDA approved that’s designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age.
Just like Restylane, Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation hyaluronic acid – a sugar that is naturally present in your skin. The difference between Restylane is that Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in lip area. That’s why it’s made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane products.

About the Procedure
All filler treatment procedures start with either a topical anesthetic, an injection of anesthetic, or an anesthetic block to lessen or eliminate discomfort. Once the desired area is numb, Dr. Abramson will inject the filler under the skin. Multiple injections are made so the dermal filler is evenly distributed through the area. The entire procedure can be performed in less than an hour.
Little or no anesthesia is required because the needles are so small that discomfort is minimal. There are topical anesthetic agents that can be used, depending on the patient’s preference and the sensitivity of the area being treated. Some patients may have slight swelling around the injection areas that will go away within a few hours.
