Restylane Silk

Restylane Silk Studio City

Restylane Silk is an FDA-approved dermal filler designed especially for your lips! It was made for people who once had full lips and want them back, and also for those who have always had thin lips but want a bit more fullness. If you have thin lips, have found wrinkles near your mouth, or if your lips have become thin over time, a dermal filler such as Restylane Silk in Studio City, California, can help you get back your full lips or give your thin lips more flair.

The Basics

Restylane Silk is the most recent addition to Galderma’s Restylane line of dermal fillers. It has been FDA-approved since 2005 for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. Restylane was developed as a treatment for all kinds of wrinkles and superficial lines around the nose and mouth, and also is a perfect treatment for improving the fullness of lips.

Restylane Silk, like all the Restylane dermal fillers, is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in the human body. Hyaluronic acid binds moisture and keeps it in the skin, which adds volume and keeps skin looking youthful. Restylane has for years been used for lip augmentation. This newer variety of dermal filler, Restylane Silk, was created especially for lips, offering significantly improved lip enhancement results.

Restylane and its sister product, Restylane-L (lidocaine is added to this variety) can be used either alone or along with other injectable fillers, or even with a botulinum toxin like Botox or Dysport. These combinations provide anti-aging effects and preserve your youthful look for many years. In our Studio City, California practice, Restylane is routinely used for smoothing out nasolabial folds (which run from the corner of the mouth to the base of the nose) and marionette lines (which run from the edge of the mouth straight down to the jaw). We also use it for lip enhancement.

Treating your skin with Restylane, along with other dermal fillers - whether you combine it with botulinum toxin or not - is both volumizing and anti-aging for your skin.

Using Restylane Silk as a Lip Filler

Restylane Silk is a clear liquid gel, and can be injected into your lips for more fullness (especially for lips that have thinned with age), or to lessen the wrinkles that might have formed near your mouth. Restylane Silk is a thinner liquid than Restylane, so it flows much more rapidly and is easier to inject. The formula of Restylane Silk has 0.3% lidocaine, so any discomfort is quite minimal, and the treatment only lasts about 30-60 minutes. At the end of your appointment, your wrinkles should be visibly reduced by up to 80%, and your lips will look more full. The results will last about 3-6 months.

If you have always had thin lips, you can still get the lips you want with Restylane Silk lip filler injections. Our specialist will inject Restylane Silk in a few spots around your lips. You will see immediate results, but after a while, the results will fade. If you want to keep your lips luscious, you’ll need to schedule extra treatment appointments.

Just as with any dermal filler, you should look for a practice with experience giving Restylane Silk treatments, so you will get the very best possible results. At our Studio City, California treatment center, we have been administering injections of Restylane Silk for a long time, making your lips plump and your lips smooth. We also have years of experience injecting other rejuvenating treatments like Botox, Dysport, and Juvederm
