The latest advance in dermal fillers is here! Restylane Silk, a brand-new dermal filler from the makers of Restylane, has just received FDA approval. Restylane Silk has all the benefits of regular Restylane, with the added bonus of 0.3% lidocaine. The addition of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, means the virtual elimination of discomfort or pain when having a Restylane Silk procedure done.
As with Restylane, hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient in Restylane Silk. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and is essential for smooth and elastic skin. When we are young, our skin has an abundance of hyaluronic acid, but we lose it as we age. Restylane Silk can help restore your skin’s youthful appearance. Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is proud to be one of the first practices to offer Restylane Silk!

What is Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is a dermal filler that can be used to restore volume and fullness to the lips, as well as to fill in wrinkles and fine lines. After a Restylane Silk procedure, you’ll appear refreshed and rejuvenated, with restored volume and smoothness.
Our team of San Diego dermal filler experts at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology use a fine needle to inject Restylane Silk into problem areas. The combination of the extremely fine needle plus the 0.3% lidocaine means that discomfort and pain are minimal to nonexistent. The procedure itself takes less than forty-five minutes, and results can be seen immediately.
What is the difference between Restylane and Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk puts comfort first with the addition of 0.3% lidocaine, a local anesthetic. This addition to the formula trusted by millions means that any pain or discomfort typically felt during the treatment is significantly diminished.

Frequently Asked Questions about Restylane Silk
Our expert dermatologists have answered the most frequently asked questions about the new Restylane Silk to help patients make an informed decision about the San Diego dermal filler treatment that’s right for them. Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
Q: How does Restylane Silk work?
A: Hyaluronic acid, a key agent in maintaining smoothness and elasticity of the face, is used to restore volume lost over time. Restylane Silk is injected directly into fine lines and wrinkles to smooth them out, and into the lips to restore fullness.
Q: How long does a Restylane Silk procedure take?
A: A Restylane Silk procedure can take anywhere from five to thirty minutes, depending on how many areas of the face are to be injected. It’s the very definition of a “lunchtime facelift.” Restylane Silk is the ideal treatment for patients with busy schedules!
Q: How long does it take to see results from Restylane Silk?
A: Most patients enjoy immediate results, although it may take a few days to see full results.
Q: Does a Restylane Silk procedure require much downtime?
A: No, there is minimal downtime required. There may be some temporary swelling or redness, but this will typically disappear after only a couple of hours.
Q: Is a Restylane Silk procedure painful?
A: The great thing about Restylane Silk is that it contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, right in the formula! Because of this, and because of the expertise of our dermatologists, pain and discomfort are absolutely minimal.
Q: How long do the results of a Restylane Silk procedure last?
A: While results vary depending on the patient, Restylane Silk can last from six months to one year.
Q: What are the side effects of Restylane Silk?
A: Restylane Silk is an extremely safe procedure with only minimal side effects, the most common being minor swelling or redness. This typically disappears within a couple of hours.
Q: How much does Restylane Silk cost?
A: At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, we believe in individualized, customized treatment for every patient. Our prices will reflect how many areas need to be treated and how much Restylane Silk is used. Schedule a consultation today for a customized treatment plan and price!
Q: Can Restylane Silk be used with other injectables?
A: Restylane Silk is perfectly safe to be used in conjunction with other injectables such as Botox. In fact, a liquid facelift can provide even better-looking results than Restylane Silk by itself.
