RESTYLANE.. Non- Surgical Cosmetic Filler
The Subtle Eraser, Looking Your Best Has Never Been Easier!!
What is Restylane?
The most well known of the cosmetic facial fillers, Restylane is a safe and natural treatment that can restore a youthful appearance back to your face. Restylane can correct moderate facial wrinkles and fine lines. Youthful skin is rich in hyaluronic acid, which provides desired fullness and softness to our skin. As we age, the distribution and function of our hyaluronic acid changes. This causes the characteristic signs of aging in our skin, such as wrinkles, loss of fullness, and loss of softness.
Restylane is made out of Hyaluronic acid which closely resembles the same substance that occurs naturally in the body. By replenishing the level of Hyaluronic acid in the skin, it can immediately soften lines and wrinkles seen with aging and enhance natural features such as the lips. Restylane is injected with a very fine needle during a comfortable procedure that requires no downtime.
The results are immediate and you can expect to leave our office with natural appearing, softer facial contours and a revitalized appearance. Restylane is used most often to fill in facial lines and grooves around the nose and mouth, create fuller lips, and shape facial contours such as cheek bones, chin and under-eye troughs. It can also be used on the back of the hands to create useful plumpness.
Treatments typically are completed in 30 minutes with a minimum of discomfort. Beneficial results are immediate and can last up to 12 months.
The primary benefits of Restylane include:

THE LATEST FACIAL ENHANCEMENT TO THE RESTYLANE FAMILY:
INTRODUCING RESTYLANE SILK
Restylane Silk is the newest hyaluronic acid cosmetic filler to join the Restylane family. Hyaluronic acid is a common component to the second layer of the skin, and it helps provide structure to the skin. Restylane Silk is a sooth, silky formulation of smaller particle hyaluronic acid gel. It provides improvement of fine lines around the mouth and corrects volume loss of the lips as well as smoker lines or “lipstick lines” around the lips.
What is the difference?Restylane Silk from other fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, or Belotero?
In the Restylane family of products, Perlane, Restylane, and now Restylane Silk are all hyaluronic acid gel products composed of gel particles. The different products of this family are distinguished by their particle size, different filler uses for each of them.
Restylane Silk differs from other products in the Restylane family by its PARTICLE SIZE. Perlane has larger particles that make it ideal for lifting tissues and creating deep volume in the face. Restylane has a mid range particle size that makes it versatile as a filler from enhancing lip size to filling in facial volume loss. Restylane Silk has the smallest particle size, allowing it to smooth fine wrinkles such as perioral rhytids (lipstick lines) or for lip augmentation.
Juvederm Ultra and the family of Allergan products (Voluma, Juvederma Ultra Plus) are cohesive gels, meaning they are not formed of particles. They provide a smooth result and attract water to the area of placement.
Restylane Silk can be categorized as a fine line filler, somewhat similar to Belotero Balance. Belotero Balance is a cohesive gel, not a particle, and has a low concentration. Belotero doesn't last as long compared to Restylane Silk.
