Restylane Silk Lip Filler
What is Restylane® Silk?
The Restylane® product line of injectables is clear gel hyaluronic acid formulations designed to act just like the fillers your body produces naturally. The various types of Restylane® can add fullness and volume to various problem spots in the skin where you’ve got lines, folds, wrinkles, hollows, or simply less volume than you want.
As you age, your lips and skin around the mouth begin to thin and lose their volume and youthful shape. Restylane® Silk is the first FDA approved lip fillers designed to help restore the natural shape and volume of the lip. It is also used to help smooth out the perioral lines (smoker’s lines). Silk is different from regular Restylane® in that contains smaller, finer particles that define its softness. This allows the doctor to use an extremely fine needle for precise injections and excellent artistry.
How Does Restylane® Differ from Other Lip Fillers?
Restylane® (like JUVÉDERM®) is a soft tissue filler both containing volume adding hyaluronic acid and are therefore true fillers. BOTOX® Cosmetic in contrast is an injectable but doesn’t work by adding volume; instead it “freezes” the facial muscles so they can’t contract. For the deeper folds, creases, and to add volume, fillers are still better.
The difference between JUVÉDERM®and Restylane® is their texture, and in fact, texture. In fact, the texture is what makes Restylane® Silk hyaluronic lip injections unique. JUVÉDERM® is smooth and soft and disperses easily once injected. Regular Restylane® is thicker and more cohesive inside the body, allowing for more sculpting action. Restylane® Silk is a softer, more precise formation specifically for the lips. It can give you all of the silkiness of JUVÉDERM® with the shapability of Restylane®.
All varieties of Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® can cause minor side effects that are temporary such as, redness from the injections, mild swelling, and bruising. Both JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® treatments last 9 to 12 months, but in terms of how long Restylane® Silk treatments last, that period of time can stretch even longer.
What Other Applications Does Restylane® Have?
Restylane® is known for the best lip injections, but it has other applications, too:
- Restylane® can fill in laugh lines
- Restylane® can add volume to hollow cheeks
- Restylane® can erase wrinkles and deep furrows by adding fresh plumpness and volume
- Restylane® can eliminate frown lines
And much more.
