Restylane is silk is one of the newer products from Galderma. It is also the thinnest filler they offer. This makes it an ideal option for a superficial injection into the fine lines around the face and mouth. It is also an ideal injection for adding definition to the lips. Because it is so thin, it does not add a lot of volume to the lips. We use this to our advantage to really help define the lips without adding a lot of volume. This makes it an excellent choice for those patients who are concerned about having a "done" look. Although with Dr. Guy's techniques, that really isn't a concern regardless of which filler is used.
It is also great for the smoker's lines or the fine lines around the mouth. Because of its thinness we can also use in on superficial scars on the face that are depressed. It is a very versatile filler that can be injected essentially anywhere. The only downside is that it doesn't last as long as some of the thicker fillers. Dr. Guy can help you decide if Restylane Silk is a good product for you.
