Restylane® Silk lip enhancer is a refined smooth gel formulation that allows for a subtle, natural-looking result. Specifically designed for precise lip definition and line control, Restylane Silk brings a higher level of artistry to your result with a unique silky smooth formulation of hyaluronic acid allowing for a natural shape.
How It Works
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
What to Expect
Some people may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort. Many Restylane products contain an integrated local anesthetic, lidocaine, to provide you with a more comfortable treatment experience. You and your healthcare professional may decide whether additional pain relief is needed.
Your doctor will cleanse and prepare the area(s) to be treated. The clear gel in the Restylane family of products is injected into the treatment area(s) using an ultra-fine needle to create the desired aesthetic effect. After injection, he/she may gently massage the treated area.
A treatment with Restylane® Silk doesn’t usually take long. A touch-up treatment is sometimes performed after the initial treatment to optimize your results. Talk to your healthcare professional to learn more about the treatment procedure.
After your initial treatment, you can refresh your look with a follow-up treatment, as determined by your healthcare professional. Additional treatments can help refresh the immediate results of your initial treatment.
In a clinical study of subjects treated with Restylane Silk or no treatment, subjects reported visible improvement in their lip fullness. As a result of the study, 98% of participants reported visible improvement in lip fullness 14 days after injection, and 77% reported visible improvement in lip fullness 6 months after injection for treatments to upper and lower lip combined.
Is It Safe?
Restylane® Silk is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age.
