Shino Bay is the first practice in the entire USA to offer Restylane Silk – now FDA approved for use on the lips.

Restylane® Silk
for Lines and Wrinkles

Restylane® Silk is safely metabolized and degraded by your liver to carbon dioxide and water. It has been consistently shown to be a safe and effective non surgical option for the immediate correction of unwanted superficial lines and wrinkles. Restylane® Silk is FDA approved to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corner of your mouth (nasolabial folds).

Restylane® Silk is an intermediate lasting filler with an average of 6 and max of 12 months. Side effects are mild to moderate and include temporary injection site reactions like redness, pain, firmness, swelling, bumps and bruising.

Restylane and Perlane are hyaluronic acids that have been used outside the United States since 1996 and were finally introduced and approved by the FDA in December 2003. The difference between the two is that Perlane is more viscous because it has larger particles and more cross links. Perlane is excellent to improve the volume of the midface and also to improve the appearance of nasolabial folds (lines and creases adjacent the nose) after lifting the midface. Since this product is thick, it can do a nice correction with very little product. In my opinion, it is a very cost effective filler. Perlane is known to last on average from six to twelve months.

Hyaluronic acid was first scientifically isolated 70 years ago and named after the Greek word “hyalos” meaning “glass” due to its appearance. Since 1996 when its use as dermal filler began, Restylane® has become one of the world’s most studied dermal fillers.
