Restylane Silk® has the distinction of being the only FDA-approved dermal filler designed specifically to treat lips and the surrounding area.
While it does enhance lips, it does so in a way to make the results look natural. It also smooths out lines on and around the lips.
How does it work?
Restylane Silk® contains hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in the second layer of the skin.
Hyaluronic acid helps give structure to the skin.
Restylane Silk® is made of small gel particles suitable for augmenting lips and smoothing lipstick lines.
As people age, their lips become thinner and lose their shape. They also develop thin lines surrounding the lips.
Restylane Silk® temporarily reverse such signs of aging.
The dermatologist uses an ultrafine needle to inject Restylane Silk® into the lips.
Most people start to see improvement in their lips two weeks after treatment. The effects typically last for at least six months.
What side effects does Restylane Silk® cause?
Most of the side effects associated with Restylane Silk® are mild. They include bruising, redness and swelling at the injection site.
The filler may also create tiny bumps under the skin, but this effect fades over time.
Patients may need to avoid certain supplements and medications to avoid any complications.
Restylane Silk® does not require a recovery period and the client may resume their normal activities immediately after being injected.
