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 does it feel like?
Restylane Silk is injected under the skin with a minimally invasive needle. The treatment usually is about 30 minutes and we have our patients come to numb 15 minutes before their appointment to minimize any discomfort that may be caused from the injection.
How does it work?
Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth. It is composed of a gel that is smaller and smoother than other restylane products, resulting in a softer, more precise result — ideal for restoring and enhancing the lips. Additionally, Silk is administered via ultrafine needle, which is designed for improved accuracy and precision.
When will I see the results?
Results can be noticeable immediately after treatment. However, there can be swelling due to the numbing agents used or from the injury to skin from the needle during the injection. Therefore, it can take up to two weeks to be completely healed and the product to be settled.
