In Los Angeles especially, every woman (and man) is in search of the fountain of youth. Thanks to two new FDA-approved fillers, we might have well found it. We sat down with Dr. Raj Chopra, M.D., F.A.C.S. to discuss Restylane Silk, the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth, and Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face that is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines and whether or not these seemingly miracle treatments actually work in restoring the appearance of youth.

Restylane Silk

What is it? 
Restylane Silk Injectable Gel is the first and only FDA approved product
specifically designed for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles
around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age.

What does it do?
Restylane Silk is a smooth, clear hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that can be
injected into the lips or into the area around the mouth to restore natural
youthful definition, symmetry and smooth wrinkles.

Why would you recommend this treatment? 
– Similar to other areas of the face, the lips and area surrounding the
mouth also show signs of aging as an individual gets older. This often
results in lip thinning, lost shape and/or an increase in vertical lines
above the lip. Restylane Silk’s particle gel formulation is designed to smooth the folds
and wrinkles around the mouth and provide fullness and definition to create
natural-looking results.

How is it different? 
Restylane Silk is designed to smooth wrinkles around the mouth, and
precisely shape and frame the lip to restore symmetry allowing for natural
looking results.

How is it a beauty breakthrough? 
Restylane Silk is a unique, refined formulation designed to provide
precise lip shaping and line control, and result in silkier, smoother lips.
And it’s the first and only FDA-approved treatment to specially address lips
and the lines around them.

What results should you expect? 
Restylane Silk smooths the folds and wrinkles around the mouth and
provides subtle fullness and definition to create a more natural-looking
smile.

What should you be aware of about the product before you go? 
As with any HA gel that is injected into the lips, common side effects
include but are not limited to swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness, and
pain.  For additional side effects, including important safety information,
please visit: www.restylanesilk.com.

Who is it right for? 
This is approved for patients over 21 years of age. Restylane Silk is
designed for individuals looking to address the signs of aging around their
lips and mouth with a subtle, natural enhancement.

Restalyne Lyft

What is it? 
RestylaneR Lyft with Lidocaine received U.S. FDA approval on July 2, 2015
for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour
deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. This is the second indication
for RestylaneR Lyft with Lidocaine, formerly marketed as Perlane-LR, which
is already FDA approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial
folds, such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines).
– With this new indication, RestylaneR Lyft is now the first and only FDA
approved filler indicated for two important areas of the face: the midface
(cheeks) and the smile lines.

What does it do? 
RestylaneR Lyft provides precise, predictable lift and restores lost
volume in the cheek area with natural-looking results.

Why would you recommend this treatment? 
With age, fat and collagen begin to deteriorate in the face. This results
in sagging skin, less prominent cheeks and more visible lines and wrinkles.
RestylaneR Lyft is designed to target this specific area by adding fullness
to the cheeks, resulting in a natural rejuvenated appearance.

How is it different?
Restylane Lyft is designed to restore contour and volume to the cheeks
and to smooth wrinkles and lines around the mouth.

How is it a beauty breakthrough? 
With this new indication, RestylaneR Lyft is now the first and only FDA
approved filler indicated for two important areas of the face: the midface
(cheeks) and the smile lines.

What results should you expect? 
Restylane Lyft provides precise, predictable lift and restores lost
volume in the cheek area with natural-looking results.

What should you be aware of about the product before you go? 
Patients treated with RestylaneR Lyft may experience bruising, swelling,
redness, tenderness, pain, itching or small lumps in the injection area. In
clinical studies, the majority of these events usually lasted less than one
week. For additional side effects, including important safety information,
please visit: www.restylanelyft.com.

Who is it right for? 
One of the most defining aspects of a youthful face is volume,
particularly in the midface area. With age, the fat that once padded the
cheeks and provided fullness to the central part of the face begins to
disappear. This results in droopy skin that sags, making the smile lines
deeper and more noticeable. RestylaneR Lyft is the first and only FDA
approved filler indicated to provide fullness to the midface area (cheeks)
and to correct and smooth the nasolabial folds (“smile lines”) as this fat
begins to disappear with age.
