RESTYLANE SILK TREATMENT BY DR. ZUCKERMAN IN NEW YORK CITY


Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved injectable filler designed for subtle lip augmentation and smoothing of perioral (around the mouth) fine lines and wrinkles. Restylane Silk is a Hyaluronic Acid filler with smaller average particle size, making it less viscous and less hydrophilic. Additionally, Silk is administered via ultrafine needle, which is designed for improved accuracy and precision. At Zuckerman Plastic Surgery, we also offer the entire line of Restylane products, including Restylane Lyft for cheek augmentation, Restylane-L for tear trough rejuvenation and Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne for nasolabial folds and marionette lines. If you prefer the Restylane family of products Silk, Refyne or Defyne over other similar Hyaluronic Acid fillers, please let the staff at Zuckerman Plastic Surgery know, and we are happy to use those injectables in your treatment.

Treatment Longevity, Downtime & Preoperative Care with Restylane® Silk

See below for an estimate of how long your treatment result may last, recovery time if any, cost range, and more.

Treatment Longevity

Treatment results are seen immediately and last approximately 6 to 9 months.

Downtime / Recovery

Restylane filler involves little to no downtime, and patients often return to work immediately after treatment. There can be bruising for 1-2 days post treatment, which then subsides, but most often with Dr. Zuckerman’s expert technique, he is able to minimize or eliminate such bruising.

Pretreatment Guidelines

A few precautions before undergoing Hyaluronic Acid filler injections are techniques to minimize bruising: no NSAIDs such aspirin or ibuprofen within a couple days before and a day after; don’t drink alcohol to excess a day before and a day after; refrain from lying flat or working out within 2 hours after injection. Makeup can be worn the day following treatment.

Approximate Cost 

$900 per vial (Most patients require one vial, but depending on treatment may require two.)



Frequently Asked Questions About Restylane® Silk


RestylaneSilk better than Juvederm Ultra or Juvederm Ultra Plus for folds around the mouth?
Dr. Zuckerman most commonly uses Juveder® Ultra Plus XC for nasolabial folds, but the choice between Allergan’s product and Restylane Silk is largely one of preference. If you prefer the Restylane product, Dr. Zuckerman is happy to use it to perform your treatment.
