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.
"Dr. Shenaq has been amazing with my reconstruction. I am so grateful for all he has done to help me. His staff is amazing as well. I can’t thank them enough, my life is forever changed."- L.P. / Google / Jan 17, 2022
"I am grateful to have Dr. Shenag on my care team. Before going into a bilateral mastectomy surgery, I thought I would need an additional surgery for the reconstruction, but Dr. Shenag was miraculously able to do immediate reconstruction to save me from having another surgery. Not only he saved me from going through another painful surgery, he again miraculously reconnected the damaged nerves for me to be able to feel sensation again, Unfortunately, pain is the first sensation I feel but I know it is only temporary since it takes time for nerves to heal. I can’t thank Dr. Shenag and his staffs ( Jessica & Desiree) enough for taking care of me…🙏🙏🙏"- N. / Google / Jan 22, 2022
"Given a breast cancer diagnosis is a gut punch. Having the right team surrounding you is vital in your process to the road to recovery to the "new you". If you are looking for your team, make sure you choose Dr. Jay Shenaq with Plastic Surgery of Houston. I was never placed in the hands of a Physician’s Assistant at any follow up visit. Dr. Shenaq carefully monitored my recovery personally for my reconstruction from start to finish due to a bilateral mastectomy. He is voted numerous times as a Patient’s Favorite Surgeon in Houston and there’s a reason, he’s mine for sure!"- M.J. / Yelp / Dec 30, 2021
"Hands down the best doctor, physician, surgeon and medical professional that I have ever had an experience with. Dr. Shenaq seamlessly balances bedside manner, a relentless pursuit for accomplishing the desired results all while setting realistic patient expectations and making you feel as though you are the only patient he is seeing. His attention to detail is beyond measure. The quality of his work is an art-form and he will take all the time in the world he needs and that you need from the moment you meet for a consultation to not giving up until he is satisfied in the operating room, and then any follow up consultations and appointments afterwards. He sees it through to the end and keeps the relationship going and is accessible. The most approachable Doctor I have ever met and although he does this work everyday...each patient, each approach is unique and tailormade. I was hopeless I could ever be confident again and Dr. Shenaq gave that back. I am forever grateful. Thank you!"- F.D. / Healthgrades / Jan 04, 2021

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.
