Are you unhappy with the appearance of your lips? Maybe you wish to increase the size of your lips for a plumper pout, or perhaps you want to eliminate the lines that have popped up around your lips. In both of these cases, Restylane® Silk can help to improve your lip appearance for a boost in confidence!

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.

Testimonial

from our patients

Dr. Cote exceeded all of my expectations. I had a rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and a tonsillectomy 1 month ago and at my follow-up he said I was above average and healing beautifully. I am very happy with my results. Recommend 10/10

I saw Dr. Picerno and FacesFirst for a lower jaw and neck uplift. My experience with Dr. P and her staff was amazing. They were so professional and answered all my questions with ease. They were very responsive to my emails. And they helped get all of my aftercare set up for me. They went out of their way to find me the most cost effective solutions. I found that their office isn’t just cosmetic surgery. It is anything and all things for faces and I will be using them to meet my other needs. Highly, highly recommend Dr. P and her staff!
