Restylane® Silk has been approved for release in the United States. It’s the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. Just like other members of the Restylane® family, Restylane® Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid – a sugar that is naturally present in your skin.
What makes Restylane® Silk different from other Restylane® products?
Like other areas of the face, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging as an individual gets older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape, and an increase in the vertical lines above the lip.
Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these areas. That’s why it’s made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
As with any other hyaluronic acid get that is injected into the lips, the most common side effect is temporary swelling.
