What is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is a filler specifically made to enhance the lips and smooth wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years and older. This filler contains smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane products.
Who is a good candidate?
Healthy patients who wish to augment their lips or correct find lines around their lips are often good candidates for this treatment option. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have bleeding disorders should not receive Restylane® Silk injections. A consultation with Dr. Barone can help to determine if this treatment option can benefit you.
What to expect with Restylane Silk
Following Restylane® Silk injections, patients may experience mild swelling, tenderness, redness and bruising at the injection site, though these side effects should resolve within a week. There is no downtime associated with these injections, so patients can return to their everyday activities as soon as they are comfortable. Touch-up appointments may be needed to reach optimal results. Results usually last about six months.
