Restylane® Silk is a revolutionary injectable treatment designed specifically to help you achieve full, gorgeous lips while also smoothing the skin and any wrinkles around your smile. Comprised of hyaluronic acid, an organic compound that naturally occurs in your body’s dermal tissues, Restylane® Silk will give you a silkier, smoother, perfectly natural looking pout.
Restylane Silk can be used as a smooth and plumping treatment to:
- Increase the fullness of the lips, perfect their shape, and smooth lip wrinkles
As we grow older there are many changes exhibited in our skin and facial features. One of the most unfortunate signs of aging is the loss of shape and volume in our lips, along with the development of vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® Silk has been specifically crafted with smaller, smoother hyaluronic particles than previous Restylane® formulations. This advancement will allow your aesthetic practitioner to provide you with natural looking results with a silky difference you can see and feel.
Who should consider Restylane® Silk?
Both male and female clients that have experienced thinning of their lips, an increase in vertical wrinkling around the mouth, and a loss of shape are ideal candidates for Restylane® Silk filler. Please contact us for a consultation to determine if Restylane® Silk is the right procedure for you.
Special Considerations, Risks and Recovery
Patients may experience swelling, redness, pain, bruising, tenderness, or itching at the injection site. Other common side effects may include headache or lump formation. These side effects are typically mild and last less than a week in clients receiving nasolabial fold injections or less than 14 days in those receiving lip injections.
Occasionally a person may experience more serious side effects including delayed onset infections, an outbreak of herpetic eruptions, or superficial necrosis at the site of injection. These side effects, although serious, are extremely rare. The selection of a qualified and experienced provider, like Dr. Leonard and the staff at Leonard Medi Spa, can help to reduce the risk of adverse reactions.
A very infrequent, yet serious risk of using any soft tissue filler such as this, is the unintentional injection of the product into a blood vessel. This is very unlikely to happen and has an extremely small rate of occurrence. However, complications may be serious and permanent including abnormalities in vision, blindness, stroke, temporary scabbing, or permanent scarring of the skin. The FDA has reviewed these unlikely effects, as well as this product and Restylane® Silk is the first product specifically formulated for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth that they have approved.
