How Long Does Restylane last la jolla

Restylane Silk is a brand-new dermal filler from the makers of Restylane which has just received FDA approval! Restylane Silk is a crystal-clear gel with 0.3% lidocaine. Lidocaine is a common local anesthetic, and its addition to the Restylane formula means that discomfort associated with the treatment is significantly reduced.

Restylane Silk is formulated with hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Restylane Silk is non-animal based and free from animal proteins. It is commonly used for lip augmentations and for filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Be one of the first to try this brand-new injectable treatment!

Our doctors actually perform all Restylane Silk treatments themselves – they don’t delegate injectable treatments to nurse practitioners and assistants like many doctors do. You are in good hands with a Restylane Silk treatment at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology.

What is Restylane Silk used for?

Like Restylane in San Diego, Restylane Silk is a dermal filler designed for non-surgical lip augmentation as well as to add volume and smoothness by filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Restylane Silk works with the body’s own hyaluronic acid to add volume, providing a natural-looking and younger appearance.

How is Restylane Silk injected?


*Disclaimer: Results vary from patient to patient. Results are not guaranteed.

Restylane Silk is injected directly into whichever part of the face you wish to be treated. Once injected, it creates a smoother, younger look by filling in fine lines and wrinkles, or by plumping the lips. Restylane Silk works immediately by providing volume in the injected area.

Our team of expert dermatologists uses an extremely fine needle or a blunt tip cannula, which was recently approved by the FDA, to minimize pain and discomfort while providing fullness to the lips. Restylane Silk also has the added benefit of 0.3% lidocaine. This lidocaine works as a local anesthetic to reduce pain and discomfort even further.

What’s the difference between Restylane and Restylane Silk?

The main difference is that Restylane Silk contains 0.3% lidocaine. The addition of lidocaine to the proven Restylane formula provides the benefit of reducing any discomfort or pain associated with the procedure. Restylane Silk is the most comfortable, pain-free dermal filler on the market.
