What is Restylane Silk®?
Restylane Silk® is the first FDA-approved product that is specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Comprised of hyaluronic acid – a sugar found naturally in your body – Restylane Silk® is a gel formulation that has smaller, smoother particles than those found in other Restylane® rejuvenation products. This composition allows effective treatment of smaller, finer areas such as the lips and mouth area.
Administered into the treated area with an ultrafine needle for minimal discomfort, Restylane Silk® temporarily reverses the signs of aging such as thinning lips, lost facial shape and lines around the mouth.
The smaller particles of Restylane Silk® provide skin rejuvenation that is natural-looking for a refreshed, more alert look.
Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane Silk® Treatment?
Doctor Funcik will ultimately help you decide if Restylane Silk® is the right decision for your cosmetic concerns. But generally, patients who are good candidates for a Restylane Silk® rejuvenation treatment include the following:
- Patients who do not have allergies that could react adversely with the product.
- Individuals who are ages 21 and older
- Patients who do not have medical conditions that could impair effective treatment
- Women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding
Are There Any Side Effects?
The side effects of Restylane Silk® are common with most other injectable treatments and include:
- Pain at injection site
Typically, these subside in 2-7 days after treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Funcik will inform you of all risks and possible side effects.
How Long Do the Results Last?
In clinical studies of patients treated with Restylane Silk® and no other treatment, 98 percent showed improvement in treated areas 14 days after the injection, with 77 percent still showing a one-point improvement in lip fullness 8 weeks after treatment and 59 percent maintaining results for 6 months after treatment.
Results may not last the same amount of time for everyone, and further treatment may be necessary as wrinkles and lines begin to reappear.
