Restylane Silk is a clear injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid and 0.3% lidocaine. Restylane Silk’s unique, refined formulation is designed for precise lip shaping and for smoothing the lines around your mouth to create a natural look.
How does Restylane Silk work?
Restylane Silk works by using hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the human body responsible for smoothness and fullness of the face, to restore lost volume. Wrinkles and fine lines can be filled using Restylane Silk, and lips can be plumped as well.
What is the difference between Restylane and Restylane Silk?
Restylane and Restylane Silk are from the same manufacturer, and are both excellent for smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. The main difference between the two is that Restylane Silk’s texture is more fluid then the original Restylane product, making it an excellent choice for fine lip lines.
How long do Restylane Silk results last?
Results will vary by individual, but treatments generally last from six months to a year. The FDA studies revealed that 98% of patients in the study reported improvement in their lip fullness two weeks post injection and 76% were still reporting improvement after 6 months.
Is a Restylane Silk treatment painful?
Restylane Silk contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Due to this addition, pain and discomfort are minimal.
What are the side effects of Restylane Silk?
While there is no downtime or recovery time needed following a Restylane Silk treatment, some patients do experience minor side effects following treatment. These side effects can include inflammation of the lips, the appearance of bruises, and discomfort. The team at Laser & Skin can counsel patients on how to best decrease the side effects.
