Restylane Silk is the newest filler on the block. The hyaluronic-acid based injectable is approved for plumping lips and filling wrinkles around the mouth (also known as smokers' lines). We can also use this filler for more superficial defects such as acne scars and wrinkles around the eyes.
Restylane® Silk is a crystal clear injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. Restylane® Silk is non-animal based and free from animal protein. Allergy pretesting is not necessary. Restylane® Silk contains 0.3% lidocaine, which was added to reduce the discomfort associated with the treatment.
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. When injected into the lip, it can restore a fuller and more natural look. In contrast to other biodegradable implants, Restylane® Silk is not extracted from animals. This means there is no risk of allergic reaction. Therefore, it is perfectly safe to use instantly without pre-testing.
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.
