estylane Silk is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler designed for lip augmentation. The primary goal of Restylane Silk is to produce natural, subtle-looking lip volume while preserving the mouth’s natural movements. This filler is also a great option for clients who are looking to minimize the appearance of mouth wrinkles, including fine lines and smoker’s lines, in addition to other areas where the skin may be thin.
How Restylane Silk works
Restylane Silk contains hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring compound that retains water molecules while adding volume at the injection site. Unlike other Restylane fillers, Restylane Silk uses smaller hyaluronic acid molecules, which helps to subtly add volume without detracting from the mouth’s natural movements. Restylane Silk helps to create a plumper pout while avoiding the dreaded “trout pout.”
Results from a Restylane Silk injection are typically seen immediately but can take 1-2 weeks to settle in. Most clients report seeing results last anywhere from 6 to 12 months.
Areas Restylane Silk treats
Restylane Silk is formulated for injection into key areas of the lip, as well as other areas of the face requiring more superficial smoothing injections.
