Restylane Silk

Gold Skin Care Center’s research center conducted official clinical trials for Restalyne Silk, and was one of the first practices in the United States to treat our patients with this gel treatment. We have a more developed relationship with this procedure than most physicians and practices, and have seen its positive effects on many of our patients!

It’s interesting how the signs of aging suddenly seem to show themselves. One day you wake up, look in the mirror, and wonder where these fine lines and wrinkles came from. While the march of time is inevitable, at least the signs of it can be slowed and, in some cases, reversed. At the Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, it’s our goal to help you look your best and bring back the silky smooth skin of your younger days. In that quest, we now offer a new dermal filler, Restylane Silk, that specifically targets the wrinkles and lines around the mouth.

What is Restylane Silk?

Introduced in January of this year, Restylane Silk in Nashville is a smooth gel designed to restore natural definition and symmetry to the lip and mouth area. It is the only filler approved by the FDA specifically for this area. Restylane Silk is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that attracts and binds with water molecules to add volume. When injected into the skin, our patients notice a visible improvement in the wrinkles and lines that surround the mouth.

What are the benefits of Restylane Silk?

Restylane Silk is used specifically for the enhancement of the lips, as well as smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Sometimes called “barcode” lines, Restylane Silk fills out and erases these vertical lines that appear around the mouth, without adding extra, unnatural volume. It also restores lip shape and definition without over-plumping.

How does Restylane Silk work?

Restylane Silk is a clear, hyaluronic acid gel specifically designed to address aging in the area around the mouth. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane Silk attracts water to add volume and fill out wrinkles. Because the area around the mouth is sensitive and more delicate, Restylane Silk in Nashville consists of smoother, smaller particles. This unique gel particle formula, which is delivered using an ultrafine needle, increases accuracy and delivers more satisfying results.

What results can I expect from my Restylane Silk treatment?

A clinical study with Restylane Silk patients in Nashville affirmed that this dermal filler provides rapid, longer-lasting results. Results showed that 98% of patients noticed a significant improvement in the fullness of their lips and surrounding wrinkles 14 days after their injections. Overall, the benefits of Restylane Silk last about six months.

Like other fillers, swelling is the most common side effect of Restylane Silk injections. However, this is only temporary and will fade in two days to a week.

Restylane Lyft

Dr. Gold is excited to announce the FDA approval of Restylane Lyft, a dermal filler which can add volume and lift to the mid-face as well as smooth nasolabial folds, otherwise known as smile or laugh lines. Dr. Gold in Nashville was involved in the clinical trials which led to this FDA approval and is looking forward to offering Restylane Lyft to all of his patients suffering from volume loss in the mid-face or prominent nasolabial folds. Restylane Lyft takes the place of the previous Restylane filler called Perlane.

What is Restylane Lyft?

Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid gel filler specifically formulated to be placed deep under the skin in order to provide increased volume and lift to the mid-face, as well as reduce the appearance of smile lines. It is the first and only injectable filler to be FDA approved for both of these uses. Many women in Nashville want to restore lift in a natural looking manner to their cheeks, and Restylane Lyft can do that for them. When injected by a skilled dermatologist, such as Dr. Gold, Restylane Lyft can provide natural results that will make you look younger and rejuvenated.

A Restylane Lyft procedure takes less than half an hour, and is virtually painless. If a patient is worried about pain from the injection, a topical numbing cream can be applied to ensure the utmost comfort. There is no downtime required and patients can feel free to resume their everyday activities immediately following treatment. Side effects are minor, and can include swelling or bruising at the injection site, which is easily managed with over-the-counter medications and makeup, and generally disappear on their own within a few days.

Benefits of Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft is perfect for patients who want a fast and effective solution for their volume loss in the cheeks or laugh lines. Volume loss in the cheeks is a common occurrence with age, as the skin produces less collagen and becomes less firm and elastic. Hollows in the cheeks can cast unflattering shadows, while sagging skin blurs definition and contour. Restylane Lyft can add volume back to the mid face and enhance cheek contours, leading to a more youthful appearance. In addition, deep smile lines can make a person look older than they are. Smoothing over these smile lines can take years off a person’s face.

Restylane Lyft can also be used together with other dermal fillers or neuromodulators, such as Botox, for a comprehensive treatment known as a liquid facelift. A liquid facelift consists of multiple non-invasive treatments for various specific skin concerns in order to create a comprehensive effect. Liquid facelifts are a great option for men and women who aren’t ready for a full surgical facelift, who want more natural results, or who are afraid of going under the knife. During your consultation, Dr. Gold and his staff in Nashville can discuss your areas of concern and formulate a customized treatment plan for the best results.

Restylane Refyne and Defyne

Looking to infuse some youth into your skin? From smoothing fine lines and wrinkles to plumping lips and providing facial volume, dermal fillers can make subtle differences that are truly transformational. In addition to careful placement by a skilled Nashville dermatologist, picking the right filler is key towards getting successful results that make you say, “wow!” Restylane is a dermal filler known for its age-defying abilities, and now the line is expanding with filler formulations that are going to change the face of wrinkle treatments: Refyne and Defyne.

At Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, we help patients refresh and rejuvenate their appearance with dermal fillers. Whether restoring lost facial volume or eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers are great anti-aging treatments that can take years off your appearance.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is a hyaluronic gel which was first created specifically for improving wrinkles. With over 30 million treatments worldwide (and counting), Restylane is often the dermal filler of choice for those seeking an effective wrinkle treatment.

Now, Restylane is introducing not one, but two new dermal fillers in the fight against laugh lines and nasolabial folds: Restylane Refyne and Defyne.

Restylane Refyne was approved to treat moderate wrinkles and folds found on the nose and the mouth, while Restylane Defyne is used to plump and fill in deep-set facial lines. Dr. Michael Gold and his research team helped perform the FDA studies with these products.

The 5 Advantages of Restylane Refyne and Defyne

Natural-looking results

While there are other fillers on the market for wrinkle treatments, it can sometimes be difficult to achieve natural-looking results with the products currently available. Both fillers feature a new type of hyaluronic acid in the filler gel that creates natural-looking results in multiple areas.

Keep your facial expressions

Galderma, the parent company behind Restylane, calls their new technology XpresHAn, which allows the hyaluronic acid gel to flex within the skin during facial movement. So whether you\’re smiling, frowning, or being expressive in any way, the results always look soft and natural, not puffy or rigid.


Because of varying densities or flexibilities, most fillers can only be used in one or two specific areas of the body. This is one reason why there are so many fillers available on the market. From fillers for superficial lines to those that are meant to plump lips and provide facial volume, there are few fillers out there that can be used across the board for multiple improvements.

Due to the versatile nature of both dermal fillers, they can be used in more areas, eliminating the need for combining multiple fillers. In addition, both fillers offer soft support for multiple areas, such as laugh lines, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.

Long-lasting treatment

Galderma has offered both injectables in Europe under the name Emervel since 2010, and some patients have reported results that lasted up to 12 months.

Client satisfaction

With dermal fillers, desired results can vary with each patient, with certain patients being happier with their results than others. Across the board, both injectables offer top marks for client satisfaction. In a clinical study, up to 95% of participants were happy with their results and found they maintained natural facial movement one month after treatment.

Re-Defyning Wrinkle Treatments

The field of cosmetic dermatology has come a long way regarding facial contouring and revolumizing. It used to be that facelifts were the first and only option for people who wanted to look younger, but with the introduction of dermal fillers, there came a wide array of choices that could not only delay the desire for surgical improvements but eliminate it altogether. By using innovative dermal fillers, everyone can maintain a youthful appearance with just two fillers.

Maintaining the look of youth is equal parts genetics, correct choice of fillers, and an expert’s eye and knowledge of underlying anatomy to enhance imperfections (such as marionette lines or nasolabial folds). Each of these fillers offer so many benefits they will be the go-to dermal fillers of choice for not only wrinkle treatments but for providing improvements to other issues, like facial volume loss.

Gone are the days when having a dermal filler treatment meant looking like you had something “done” to your face. Refyne and Defyne are changing the face of Nashville dermal fillers by providing outstanding results and improving volume loss, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, and allowing patients to look natural.
