Restylane® Silk is the first and only dermal filler approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lip enhancement and the treatment of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in people over the age of 21. Restylane® Silk is a smooth gel designed to restore natural youthful definition and symmetry to the lip and mouth area.
Restylane® Silk is the first and only product specifically designed to treat the lips and lines around the mouth. It can help address the signs of aging in the smile area without resulting in an artificial or “overdone” look.
As people age, fat and collagen in the face begin to deteriorate and bone loss may occur, leading to thinner skin and more noticeable lines and wrinkles. In the lower part of the face, this often results in lost lip volume and definition and an increase in lines around the mouth.
Restylane Silk is an exciting advancement on safe, effective and proven treatment that was engineered specifically to treat the sensitive and delicate area in the lips and around the mouth. Restylane® Silk presents a new option for these patients that not only helps smooth wrinkles and lines, but also softly restores lip shape and enhances definition without over-plumping.
Restylane® Silk is administered by a physician or qualified healthcare professional. The product is injected into a patient’s lip and/or area around the mouth in one or two sessions as needed and the process typically takes less than one hour. Restylane® Silk lasts approximately 6 months following treatment. The most common side effects following treatment with Restylane® Silk are: swelling, tenderness, bruising, pain and redness. The majority of these side effects were mild and decreased in severity within 2-7 days.
Restylane® Silk is only available through a licensed practitioner.
