It is a naturally occurring sugar in our bodies which helps in adding skin suppleness. This treatment gives you smooth, soft and supple lips.

The working of Restylane Silk

We administer Restylane Silk into your lips and around your mouth using an ultrafine needle. The procedure is not painful. Before we inject your lips or the surrounding areas, we normally identify specific spot where it is needed.

Important safety information

Indication: Restylane® Silk is indicated for submucosal implantation for lip augmentation and dermal implantation for correction of perioral rhytids in patients over the age of 21.

Restylane Silk contains traces of gram-positive bacterial protein and is contraindicated for patients with allergies to such material or for patients with severe allergies that have required in-hospital treatment.

Restylane Silk should not be used by patients with bleeding disorders, with hypersensitivity to amide-type local anesthetics, such as lidocaine, under the age of 22, or by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Restylane Silk should not be injected anywhere except the dermis or lip submucosa.

How are Restylane results like?

Following the injection with Restylane Silk you will be able to go home and resume your normal activities since the treatment has no downtime. Most patients who we have treated at our facility have had improved results after about two weeks. You will also most likely have soft and plumper lips after this time. The treatment has desirable results compared to other forms of lip augmentation because it has very small particles that give a natural look. The good results can last for approximately six months. We will advice you on when to come for repeat injections to maintain your beautiful look.

What are the side effects of Restylane Silk?

Post-treatment side effects could include swelling, redness, pain, and bruising, however, these are usually mild and last less than two weeks. Swelling’s more likely to occur in people under 35 years old, while bruising is more likely in those over 35. Your doctor will provide you with specific after-treatment directions in order to minimize these side effects. Contact your healthcare provider if they haven’t reduced by at least 50% three days after treatment.
