Restylane® Silk For a silky, smooth natural-looking smile — Designed specifically for lips and the lines around them
Restylane Silk has recently been approved for release in the United States! It’s the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age. Patients treated with Restylane Silk reported fast-acting, long-lasting results.
What makes Restylane Silk different from other Restylane products?
Restylane® Silk’s unique particle gel formula, along with an ultrafine needle designed for improved accuracy, helps give you softer, more precise results — just what you need for a natural-looking smile. Like other areas of the face, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging as an individual gets 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 areas. That’s why it’s made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane products. In a clinical study of patients treated with Restylane Silk or no treatment, clinical investigators reported:
- 77% of patients treated with Restylane Silk showed at least a one-point improvement in lip fullness (measured on a 5-point scale) eight weeks after treatment.
- 59% of patients treated with Restylane Silk maintained lip fullness six months after treatment
- 98% of patients reported a visible improvement in lip fullness 14 days after injection
- 76% of patients still had lip improvement six months following injection
Is Lip Enhancement Right For You?
Restylane, Restylane-L or Restylane Silk can be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years. Like many people, you may want fuller lips. Your lips may benefit from more volume and symmetry. Look in the mirror, and ask yourself if you see:
As with any other hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into the lips, the most common side effect is temporary swelling.
