Restylane Silk is a clear, injectable gel filler that’s designed to treat lines and wrinkles around the mouth in a way that creates a natural, more youthful appearance for patients. The first FDA-approved product created specifically for lip enhancement and to combat mouth wrinkles, Restylane Silk contains no animal proteins and has .3% lidocaine to increase patient comfort during treatment. This clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid is available for patients over 21 years of age.
How Restylane Silk Works
In order to combat the typical signs of aging around the mouth like lip thinning, lost lip shape and vertical lines, Restylane Silk uses smaller, smoother particles than other Restylane products. Its unique formula, coupled with the ultrafine needle used in applications for better accuracy, provides the precise results needed to create a natural-looking smile*. While every patient is different and thus every patient’s ideal lip shape is unique to him or her, Restylane Silk is a way to achieve the specific look desired.
What to Expect for Restylane Silk Treatments
A Restylane Silk treatment usually takes less than an hour to complete. According to clinical studies, as many as 98% of patients saw increased lip fullness 14 days after treatment, with only mild adverse reactions. What’s more, 76% of patients still saw results six months later.
