Perfect your pout with Restylane Silk filler for lips in Fort Lee, NJ

You won’t pout over the appearance of your lips after treatment at Edmund Kwan, M.D.’s New Jersey office. Skillfully administered by Board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan, and his professional team, Restylane for lips in Fort Lee, NJ creates the pucker you’ve always wanted or restores the pout you used to have. Restylane Silk isn’t “just” a volumizer; this product from the popular Restylane family of dermal fillers is proven to successfully soften lines around the mouth and to define the shape of the lips.

Since Restylane Silk is an advanced product made up of small and smooth hyaluronic acid (HA) particles, you don’t look like “you’ve had work done.” You get an improved appearance that’s all you – no duck lips! Small, smooth particles also contribute to lips that feel soft and natural to the touch. In fact, the makers of Restylane, Galderma Laboratories, report that 98 percent of subjects in a clinical study saw visible improvement in lip fullness after just 14 days post-injection. Lips remained visibly improved for most of those subjects – 77 percent of them – 6 months after treatment.

Love your lips

We know that pictures speak volumes. On this website, you’ll see many photos of satisfied patients. Feel free to ask Dr. Kwan for additional pictures (and bring photos of celebrities or other looks you covet to your complimentary consultation). Many of the “before” and “after” photos on this website feature common cosmetic concerns; for instance, many patients reach out to Dr. Kwan and his experienced team to correct sunken or hollow areas, loose and saggy skin, and wrinkles and folds.

It’s estimated that the dermis or lower layer of the skin loses at least 20 percent (and up to 80 percent!) of its thickness as part of the natural aging process. Such dermal thinning is attributed to your body producing less collagen and elastin fibers over time. Unprotected sun exposure and other environmental and lifestyle factors, such as smoking, speed up the breakdown of these proteins and result in prematurely lax, shallow, and aged-looking areas. Your lips are not immune to this process. You may have noticed your pucker looks smaller and less defined than it used to, due to the degradation of those structural components of tissue. UV from tanning beds or the sun’s rays and the use of tobacco products accelerate age-related changes, including decreased lip volume.

Dehydration is also to blame for a deflated pout. Hyaluronic acid is associated with moist, luminous skin. As you get older, your body produces less of this water-loving molecule. Dry and inflexible skin can worsen the appearance of wrinkles. Creases such as those caused by pursing the lips to smoke can further detract from the appearance of your lips. The repeated action of puffing on a cigarette gives rise to horizontal lines under the upper and lower lips. Edmund Kwan, M.D. can do what Mother Nature can’t — replenish your body’s supply of hyaluronic acid to give you back your full, luscious lips or defy genetics by creating the lip size and shape that’s always eluded you.

Lip boosting, beautifying Restylane Silk

Restylane Silk and its sister products are all formulated with HA. This substance lubricates your joints, acts as a shock absorber in the eye, and transports vital nutrients to the eyeball; however, about half of your body’s HA is found in the skin’s epidermis and underlying dermis. HA combined with water has a gel-like quality,. These gel products are known as dermal fillers. When injected into the skin, HA-based fillers like Restylane bring water to the skin’s surface and inflate supportive facial structures and tissues. Since HA is present in your body naturally, concerns associated with foreign substances such as rejection or toxicity are avoided. The risks of side effects are also minimized, due to your treatment being performed safely and skillfully by medical professionals in a medical setting. Restylane Silk is applied precisely to specific points via an ultra-thin needle.

It’s good to know that:

  • Injections are well-tolerated by most patients. We’ll discuss how to make treatment even more comfortable before your first session.
  • Side effects are limited to the injection sites, and usually include temporary swelling and bruising.
  • Love instant gratification? Then you’ll love Restylane Silk!
  • Expect to keep those beautiful results for up to six months.
  • Sustain results with maintenance sessions.
  • Treatment can be completed over lunch, with no downtime.

You don’t have to introduce a foreign implant to delicate lips or undergo more invasive procedures to get the pucker you’ve always wanted. Call 201 947 3636 to schedule your appointment at Edmund Kwan, M.D.’s Fort Lee, NJ office.

What our patients say


I just looked in the mirror and I like what I see. I am a 55 year old male. I heard praise for Dr. Kwan from friends and went in for a consult. I like Kwan’s direct and informative approach. That was a Friday, I booked a lower facelift, upper lid and fat relocation to the cheeks for the following Thursday. All went really well. I was surprised how little bruising and discomfort I felt. I was prepared for more. So now about 10 weeks later, I must say, I look really great. The change is subtle, which is just what I wanted. I truly feel that a bit of time has been turned back. And that, is a Good Thing.
