Restylane Silk – Get Supple and Plumber Lips for a Younger Look

If you have aging signs around your mouth and thinned lips, Restylane Silk can help in restoring your young look.

What is Restylane Silk?

Restylane Silk is a product made from a formulation of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar in our bodies and helps in maintaining the skin supple. If used in lip augmentation, Silk creates a full appearance for a smooth result. This product has smaller particles than those used in other dermal fillers that enhance smoother and more natural looking results.

How does Restylane Silk work?

A trained physician will inject Restylane Silk into the lips and in the lines around the mouth using an ultrafine needle. The amount used per treatment should be limited to 1.5mL per lip for augmentation, and 1.0mL for correcting fine lines around the mouth. Using more than this could increase the risk of negative reactions at the injection site, such as swelling and bruising.

What are the results?

Restylane Silk has no downtime; you will be able to go back to work after the in-office treatment that is safely performed at Body by Bloch. You can expect to see a visible increase in fullness after two weeks following treatment. The results will be more natural looking compared to implants because Restylane Silk has small and smooth particles. With this lip augmentation treatment, you should expect your results to last for about six months. Your aesthetician will advise you on when to come for repeat injections to help you maintain your youthful-looking lips.
