WHAT IS RESTYLANE® SILK?
Restylane Silk is the newest addition to the Restylane family of products, receiving its FDA approval in 2014. Restylane Silk is the first and only FDA approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. Restylane Silk has been approved in other countries like Canada and Europe for many years.
Just like other Restylane products, Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. As you get older, your lips and skin around the mouth show signs of aging resulting in thinning of the lips, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines around the lip. Made with smaller, smoother particles than Restylane, Restylane Silk provides natural-looking results with subtle enhancement to the lips and fine lines around the lips.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR RESTYLANE SILK?
If you would like to add subtle enhancement to the lips, or smooth wrinkles and lines around the mouth, Restylane Silk may be a treatment for you. Both men and women may be candidates for a Restylane Silk treatment.

RESTYLANE SILK TREATMENT
Restylane Silk is injected superficially with an ultra fine needle designed for improved accuracy and more precise results. The in-office treatment time can average around 60 minutes. However, this may vary depending on the amount or type of correction you are seeking. Although most clients find the injections to be relatively painless, a topical anesthetic may be applied to the area prior to receiving your treatment. Results can be seen immediately following treatment and last approximately 6 months or more.
