Restylane in Princeton and Monroe, NJ
Restylane® is an injectable dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to eliminate lines and wrinkles that help your skin retain moisture to slow down the aging process. Board-certified New Jersey otolaryngologist Dr. Scott Kay, FACS, offers Restylane®, Restylane® Silk and Restylane® Lyft treatments to restore a youthful appearance for patients in the Central New Jersey area, including those throughout the Princeton, Monroe and Plainsboro communities.
What Is Restylane®?
The Restylane® line of dermal fillers is a series of clear gels that contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance produced naturally in our bodies that attracts and binds with water, helping the skin retain moisture and thus restore a more smooth and youthful appearance. As you age, your skin produces less hyaluronic acid, causing it to lose hydration and resulting in lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds that make you appear aged.
Restylane® products replenish the hyaluronic acid in your skin to hydrate and nourish the structural layers of tissue beneath the skin’s surface, where wrinkles originate. Increased hydration makes skin cells plumper and firmer, smoothing out lines, creases, folds, and wrinkles. Every formula in the Restylane® product line is designed to replicate the hyaluronic acid produced by your own body while targeting different problem areas and addressing particular conditions.
What Is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is an exclusive gel formula that produces softer, fuller, younger-looking lips, and looks and feels completely natural. The first and only FDA-approved injectable filler on the market specifically formulated to enhance volume and fullness in the lips, Restylane® Silk also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sometimes referred to as “smoker’s lines” around the mouth. Restylane® Silk is made up of fine particles that are tinier and smoother than the ones in our other Restylane® products, making it the ideal formula for subtle, delicate enhancement of lip volume and contour, while diminishing the appearance of vertical lines and wrinkles around the lips.
What Is Restylane® Lyft?
Restylane® Lyft is one of the newest products in the Restylane® line of HA-based injectable fillers. Restylane® Lyft is a gel injection that adds lift and volume to the cheeks, improving facial contour.

How Is Restylane® Administered?
The Restylane® gel formula is injected directly into the skin using a very slender fine-gauge needle. Results are visible immediately following the treatment, but you will continue to see increased results over time as lines, wrinkles, folds and creases fade naturally and gradually as a result of the increased hydration in your skin cells provided by the hyaluronic acid that Restylane® gel delivers. An average treatment provides lasting results for approximately 10 to 12 months.
