We are pleased to be the first office in the city to offer Restylane Silk. This brand-new filler is FDA approved for lip lines (sometimes called “smoker’s lines,” but all patients eventually get these). It is also approved for filling the lips. This new filler is a smaller particle size than the standard Restylane, which has had an outstanding safety profile over many years. The smaller particle size of Restylane Silk makes it ideal for fine lines of the upper lip. Having now injected this, I am pleased to say that it is every bit as smooth as its thicker brother Restylane, but fits more easily into the lip lines. This new filler is ideal for the patient who wishes to see improvement in the lip lines and lip volume without the downtime of a chemical peel or laser. We like to pair this type of filler with a muscle relaxer like Botox or Dysport for optimal results.
