Restylane® Silk

As we age, we lose fullness in our face and hands, which makes us look older and gives us those deep smile lines, marionette lines (the lines going down from the corners of the mouth), thin lips, and undereye hollowing.  We also lose collagen and elastin as we age, which adds to our wrinkles.

Restylane® Silk restores lost volume and fills lines and wrinkles. It is beautiful for enhancing the shape and smoothness of lips (lip augmentation).

You will begin the consultation process by meeting with our Physician Assistant, Marissa Benist or Dr. Kavali.  She will help to establish your goals for your procedures and take your before photos to accurately track your transformation. 

The consultation time is meant to be comfortable and educational. We want you to feel completely informed, so you can make your own personal best decision.

  • Is Restylane Silk® right for me?

    Is Restylane Silk® right for me?

    There are quite a few fillers available today, which makes choosing the right filler sometimes seem confusing. We will discuss all your options with you and help you choose the filler that’s right for you. The fillers on the market today vary in composition, and some are better in specific areas of the face, while others may not be good for certain areas.
  • What’s in Restylane Silk®? How does Restylane Silk® work?

    What’s in Restylane Silk®? How does Restylane Silk® work?

    Restylane Silk® is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural sugar found in our bodies normally. It’s part of our skin, your joints, and your eyes. But as we age, we lose some of that hyaluronic acid, as well as collagen. Restylane Silk® literally fills the lines and wrinkles, smoothing them instantly. The filler particles in Restylane Silk® are very tiny, which makes this filler different from the others we offer. Dr. Kavali likes to say that Silk “fills the cracks”–it doesn’t build up the lips so much as it smooths them.
  • What is a Restylane® treatment like? Does it hurt?

    What is a Restylane® treatment like? Does it hurt?

    You’ll meet with Dr. Kavali or one of our Physician Assistants. They will want to understand your concerns and your goals. Then they will discuss all your options. If you decide to try Restylane Silk®, you will be given some ice to place on your treatment areas. This will help numb the skin. You may also opt for a dental block (an injection of numbing medicine into the nerves around the mouth) for complete comfort. The dental block will make your entire mouth numb for a couple of hours. Restylane® is pre-mixed with lidocaine (numbing medicine), so the procedure is as comfortable as possible. While it is impossible to make it completely pain-free, the procedure is quite tolerable. We use a tiny needle to inject the Restylane® exactly where it should go. You’ll see your results instantly! And you can apply makeup immediately after the treatment. You can also get back to all your normal activities right away.
