Restylane versus Restylane Silk
Restylane or Restylane Silk?
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!:)

Best of luck!

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.

Restylane silk is an excellent choice for your tear troughs. Restylane silk is a brand new product. It is the next generation of Restylane. It consists of Smaller particle size and is finer than Restylane so it is very smooth. Perfect for delicate under eye area.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Both are good options for the tear troughs
Whether you opt for Restylane or Restylane Silk, I recommend you find a Dermatologist who uses filler in this area frequently. An experienced Dermatologist will give you the greatest cosmetic result with the fewest side effects and least downtime. You may want to inquire about using a microcannula for the procedure, which can further minimize post-procedural bruising.
