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 had a great experience with Dr. Shenaq and his team for my reconstruction surgery following a bilateral mastectomy. He is not only knowledgeable in his field, but he has a remarkable bedside manner — warm, personable, compassionate and a great sense of humor. My husband and I think the world of him, and I would highly recommend him."- V. / Healthgrades / Dec 23, 2019

"In 1998 my 9 year old had a major accident on his dirt bike (he was wearing a full face helmet) . Dr Shenaq put over 60 stitches in his face and you can’t even see a scar. The muscles in his far head were severed and hanging out of his face too. He does amazing work and I would recommend him to everyone!"- L.C. / Facebook / Feb 23, 2019
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.
