Restylane SILK is an injectable dermal filler that is effective at decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Accepted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Restylane’s main ingredient is a synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) that replenishes the body’s natural supply of HA to improve the hydration and elasticity of the skin. Metro Houston, TX board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Shenaq, knows that Restylane is best at restoring missing volume to the facial lines around the nose and the mouth, diminishing nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and reducing unwanted jowls for 6 – 12 months. At Plastic Surgery of Houston, we prefer using Restylane in these areas because it is a contained filler and does not spread once it is injected into the skin, which makes it ideal for treating lines with greater precision than other injectable wrinkle fillers.
"I met Dr Shenaq when my best friend had breast cancer. He took so much time to carefully explain the procedure to her. I was so impressed with this surgeon that when I came down with breast cancer in my left breast I immediately made my appointment with Dr. Shenaq. I had a double skin sparing mastectomy with reconstruction, and yes this plastic surgeon did a phenomenal job! Dr. Shenaq and his staff took such good care of me, they are very understanding, and really care about you. I could not be happier with the outcome of my surgery. Westside surgical center is where my surgery took place. If you want phenomenal patient care, this is the place to be. Dr. Shenaq with his particular care, really made me look and feel good about myself quickly."- L.M. / Yelp / Nov 03, 2015
"I was introduced to Dr. Shenaq after being diagnosed w/ breast cancer. I had a unilateral mastectomy & my remaining 'good' breast was equipped with a 23 year old implant. Dr. Shenaq definitely had his work cut out for him to fix me up & make me look symmetrical again. Not only did he replace what the cancer had taken, he fixed the good breast with a new implant. This man is a genius and an absolute perfectionist! His caring nature is unmatched. I look better now than before my diagnosis!"- S. / Healthgrades / May 29, 2018
"I had my Breast Cancer in 2011 Dr.Shenaq was the one who helped me with all my fears he said “your going to be just fine” he reconstructed me by taking my belly fat and used that to reconstruct my breast. I had a double mastectomy and people are still amazed at his excellent work. Thank you so much Dr.Shenaq.?"- M.F. / Facebook / Feb 27, 2018

"Dr. Shenaq and his staff have been a Godsend! Dr. Shenaq is doing my reconstruction surgery after a cancer diagnosis. He has been awesome! On my first visit he consulted with my husband and I until we had no more questions or concerns. He made sure I understood what was being done throughout the entire process. He answered all of my questions. He has been comforting, professional, extremely competent and the reconstruction looks fantastic! It is a work of art! It is more than I ever expected!His staff is so warm, caring and kind as well as professional! These ladies rock!I came here very frightened and insecure and now I am confident and very grateful because of the experience I have had. I am so happy I came here and I would encourage anyone who needs reconstruction to come to Dr. Shenaq! You will not be disappointed."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Dec 13, 2017
Restylane injections are wonderful if you still have great skin elasticity, but want to slow the impact of aging by filling in the fine lines, wrinkles, and gaunt areas on the face. A great candidate for Restylane has the following:
- Moderate fine lines and wrinkles
- Moderate to severe skin folds
- Good overall health
- At least 21 years old
- Good skin elasticity
What to Expect
The results following a Restylane treatment are usually seen right away and last for 6 – 12 months. Immediately after your Restylane treatment, you may have swelling and redness for a few hours. You may return to your normal activities after treatment, but we advise avoiding vigorous activities for 24 hours. We also encourage you to not put any pressure on the area and to keep your head elevated for optimal healing while the Restylane settles into its final position.
A treatment of Restylane usually lasts about 30 minutes in our office. During that time, your face will be cleaned and the doctor will mark the injection sites. If you are worried about any soreness or pain during your treatment, a numbing cream can be applied before the injections. Restylane is delivered with an ultra-fine syringe so that the mixture can slowly enter the skin and the doctor can carefully contour the face to meet your goals.
