Restylane Silk is the newest filler on the block. The hyaluronic-acid based injectable is approved for plumping lips and filling wrinkles around the mouth (also known as smokers’ lines). We can also use this filler for more superficial defects such as acne scars and wrinkles around the eyes.
Restylane® Silk is a crystal clear injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. Restylane® Silk is non-animal based and free from animal protein. Allergy pretesting is not necessary. Restylane® Silk contains 0.3% lidocaine, which was added to reduce the discomfort associated with the treatment.
- Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results.
- 77% of patients treated with Restylane® Silk showed at least a one-point improvement in lip fullness (measured on on a 5-point scale) eight weeks after treatment.
- 59% of patients treated with Restylane® Silk maintained lip fullness six months after treatment.
WHAT IS RESTYLANE® SILK?
Restylane® Silk is a crystal clear injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. The FDA-approved filler is injected into the skin to enhance lip fullness and to improve the wrinkles around the lips.
Once in your skin, the hyaluronic acid gel creates volume, resulting in a more healthy and vital appearance.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and therefore it also dissolves naturally with time and is integrated into your body’s tissues. The effects of wrinkle fillers such as Restylane® Silk can last months.
WHAT IS RESTYLANE® SILK USED FOR?
This hyaluronic acid filler can be used to improve the appearance of thin lips and wrinkles around the mouth. The gel temporarily adds volume to the lips and plumps skin to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
HOW DOES RESTYLANE® SILK WORK?
The treatment is performed by injecting Restylane® Silk under your skin. Since no pre-test is needed, your procedure can usually be done in less than an hour.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM RESTYLANE® SILK?
You results will depend on your overall goal and suitability. Depending on the area treated, most folds and wrinkles require one treatment. The repeat maintenance treatment is not usually required for approximately six months or longer. The great thing about Restylane® Silk treatment is that you can replenish your natural beauty whenever you feel the need.
Restylane® Silk is a patient-friendly procedure. One thing to remember is that this filler is like an ice cube in your body. It dissolves slowly, much like an ice cube dissolves in water. So it doesn’t go from there to not there in one moment, but over months and months.
You may have hyaluronic acid fillers injected during the same office visit along with BOTOX® or Dysport™. If you are taking antibiotics, there should be no problem continuing them if you have this procedure. But talk with the doctor about all medications you are taking.
