The lips you want. Silkier, smoother, natural-looking lips.

Consultation required prior to treatment. Your provider will determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure at the time of the consultation, and we reserve the right to recommend a different procedure or refund this purchase.
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get 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 particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
What is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is a crystal clear injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. The FDA-approved filler is injected into the skin to enhance lip fullness and to improve the wrinkles around the lips.
Once in your skin, the hyaluronic acid gel creates volume, resulting in a more healthy and vital appearance.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and therefore it also dissolves naturally with time and is integrated into your body's tissues. The effects of wrinkle fillers such as Restylane® Silk can last months.
What is Restylane® Silk used for?
This hyaluronic acid filler can be used to improve the appearance of thin lips and wrinkles around the mouth. The gel temporarily adds volume to the lips and plumps skin to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How does Restylane® Silk work?
The treatment is performed by injecting Restylane® Silk under your skin. Since no pre-test is needed, your procedure can usually be done in less than an hour.
What results can I expect from Restylane® Silk?
You results will depend on your overall goal and suitability. Depending on the area treated, most folds and wrinkles require one treatment. The repeat maintenance treatment is not usually required for approximately six months or longer. The great thing about Restylane® Silk treatment is that you can replenish your natural beauty whenever you feel the need.
Restylane® Silk is a patient-friendly procedure. One thing to remember is that this filler is like an ice cube in your body. It dissolves slowly, much like an ice cube dissolves in water. So it doesn't go from there to not there in one moment, but over months and months.
You may have hyaluronic acid fillers injected during the same office visit along with BOTOX® or Dysport™. If you are taking antibiotics, there should be no problem continuing them if you have this procedure. But talk with the doctor about all medications you are taking.
Are there any reasons why I should not use products within the Restylane® family? (Contraindications)

Are there other precautions that I should discuss with my doctor?
What are the possible side effects?
The most commonly observed side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function. These are typically mild in severity and typically resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site.
One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin.
As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
