What is Restylane® Silk?
Like other areas of the face, the lips begin to show signs of aging as we get older. Restylane® Silk Is the first FDA-approved filler to specifically augment the lips and smooth lines around the lips. Patients 21 years and older can benefit from this filler to create a natural augmentation of the lips for a fuller pout that is in proportion with their other facial features.
How Does It Work?
Restylane® Silk is made up of smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in Restylane® to provide natural-looking results in and around the lips.
Because Restylane® Silk includes a numbing lidocaine anesthetic, treatment is comfortable for many patients. During treatment, Restylane® Silk will be injected into or around the lips using a fine needle. Treatment is quick, commonly only lasting 10-15 minutes to complete, making this option great for those on the go.
