Restylane® Silk is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler designed to improve the appearance of vertical lip lines (wrinkles around the mouth) and to restore volume to the lips. Restylane® Silk is made of smaller gel particles, which make it perfect for achieving natural-looking results. It can be molded and shaped to give you the perfect pout and helps smooth out fine lines.

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.
