The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging, as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape, and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How long do Restylane® Silk treatments last?
In clinical studies, the results of Restylane® Silk lasted approximately 6 months following treatment. In a U.S. clinical trial involving 221, mostly female subjects, 98% of subjects reported a visible improvement in lip fullness in upper and lower lip (combined) 14 days after injection, and 77% still had lip improvement at 6 months following injection.
What are the potential side effects of Restylane® Silk?
After your treatment, you may experience side effects, such as swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, itching at injection site, and tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14-18 days in lips.
What areas can be treated?
Restylane® Silk is used for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral (around the mouth) wrinkles in patients over the age of 21.
