How does Restylane Silk work?
Restylane Silk is a hyaluronic acid gel containing lidocaine (for patient comfort) specifically designed to correct thinning lips, loss of lip shape and lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring substance found in the body that binds to the water in your tissues for joint lubrication and plumps up the skin. The hyaluronic acid used in these products is not from animal sources so no skin test is required prior to treatment.
Restylane Silk is similar to Restylane and Restylane Lyft with the exception being that the particle size of the hyaluronic acid molecule is smaller than the others. The smaller particle size produces a smoother, softer gel for natural-looking results.
Gone are the days of “trout pout” or “fish lips” as commonly seen and portrayed in Hollywood!! With Silk you can expect natural, supple, beautiful results.
The procedures takes approximately 30 minutes and the results last approximately 6 months or longer.
