Restylane® Silk is a smooth, clear gel composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. This HA filler contains modified HA that lasts longer than the naturally occurring HA in the body. Restylane® Silk also contains lidocaine to reduce pain and discomfort during injection.
What is it Used For?
As you get older, your lip shape and volume can change. Thinning lips cause the vertical lines above the lip to become more prominent. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
Frequently Asked Questions
The effects generally last at least 6 months and gradually disappear from the body.
The main difference between the two is the purpose. Original Restylane can be used to enhance lip volume, but Restylane® Silk is FDA-approved for this purpose, and the unique particle gel composition typically provides the most natural-looking and smoothest results possible.
Common side effects include swelling, tenderness, redness, bruising, itching, and pain.
