Restylane Silk is an injectable hyaluronic acid-based filler that can restore and enhance the lips. As we age, the lips tend to thin and lose shape. Hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body, helps maintain supple skin. When injected into the skin, Restylane Silk delivers a supply of HA, which activates the skin’s hydrating mechanisms. This plumps the lips and eliminates fine lines.
Dr. Gary Goldenberg and Dr. Kristina Goldenberg are New York City-based Board Certified dermatologists and specialists in non-surgical cosmetic techniques. They often recommend Restylane Silk injections alone or as part of a comprehensive skin rejuvenation and enhancement program.

How are Restylane Silk treatments performed?
Restylane Silk treatments are a painless, fast procedure. During your treatment, your doctor will administer Restylane Silk using an ultrafine needle. The small size of the needle helps control the amount of filler that enters the skin. This is particularly important when treating the lips, as an excessive filler can lead to exaggerated results. Dr. Gary Goldenberg and Dr. Kristina Goldenberg consistently achieve fuller, natural-looking lips for their patients.
To ensure patient comfort, a topical anesthetic gel is applied. After the injection, patients may experience minor swelling, redness, and bruising. But these symptoms quickly subside in a day or two.
