What is Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is a dermal filler that is specifically designed to smooth out fine lines & scars and give subtle volume to the face and lips. Unfortunately, our skin is not the only visible part of the face that eventually shows signs of aging. Your lips can change over time, including a loss of shape, an increase in vertical lines and overall thinning. If you want to restore balance and fullness to your lips, Silk may be the injectable for you.
How does Restylane Silk work?
Silk is one of the thinnest fillers and is specifically intended to enhance the volume of the lips and minimize vertical lip lines for more youthful results.* It is a transparent liquid gel that requires less pressure to inject. Once it is injected directly into the lips, it and can reduce wrinkles and lip lines and plump up thin lips in general.*
What can I expect from the treatments?
During your consultation at Dermatology & Skin Health, we will be able to determine if Silk is right for you. If this treatment is recommended, during your appointment, your lips and/or the areas around your mouth may receive a number of injections. This will depend on the amount of volume that is needed. Your skin will be numbed with a topical anesthetic prior to treatment to help with discomfort. After the injections, you may experience some swelling, redness, pain or bruising. These side effects are usually mild and subside after a few days.
What can I expect from the results?
You will be able to see a noticeable improvement immediately following your appointment.* However, the full results will appear a few weeks later, as the special formulation boosts collagen production, which further fills out and plumps the skin and lips.* Therefore, you can expect to see improved results in the weeks following the procedure.* You can expect the results to last anywhere between half a year and a year and a half.*
