Restylane versus Restylane Silk
Silk vs Regular
Thank you for your question. Restylane Silk is made with a smaller molecule, it tends to look better under the eyes because its softer than the regular Restylane. However both can be used under the eyes. Good luck!
Best filler for underlies
Restylane Silk or Restylane are both fantastic for under eye fillers. Having personally performed over 1000 cases of under eye filler with Restylane products, if you see a person with tremendous experience, you should be able to use either product without getting lumps/bumps/tindle effect. In addition, the cost between Restylane Silk and regular Restylane should be about the same. The one benefit of using regular restylane, since it is a little bit thicker, it will take less product and last longer than restylane silk. I hope this helps! under eye filler can be life changing so hope you are happy with your results!

Galderma has 3 major filler products. Restylane, Restylane Lyft, and Restylane Silk.
The Restylane product will be better for your facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth.
While the lyft product will be better if you are looking for volume in the cheek and mid face area.
Restylane silk is the BEST for lips and and lines around them.
All products are great! Just target your areas of concern- I hope this helps you on your journey!:)

Restylane® Silk has recently been approved by the FDA for release in the United States. It’s the first and only approved product specifically designed for smoothing wrinkles and lines around the mouth, as well as replacing lost volume.
Restylane Versus Restylane Silk
Both are safe FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers. Restylane Silk can be injected in a more superficial dermal position. Restylane is a soft tissue filler injected below the dermis for fine upper lip wrinkles. I would consider using a hyaluronic acid filler like Restylane for the tear trough correction, which will not cause
significant swelling and can last for over a year. This should be done in the hands of a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist.
