Just like the other members of the Restylane® Collection, Restylane® Silk, is a formulation of hyaluronic acid. Everyone has this natural acid in his or her body. The acid is a series of sugars that combine with water to lubricate movable parts. The hyaluronic acid and water work as moisturizers. Due to aging and exposure to the sun’s ultra-violet rays, hyaluronic acid needs replenishing. Often, the body can’t regenerate it at a desired level. Aging can often lead to undesirable results in the lips including lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. With that, Restylane Silk can be used as a derivation to simulate and sustain that once-youthful look.
Restylane Silk is the latest in the Restylane Collection to earn FDA approval status. What Restylane Silk does is similar in nature to the other products in the Restylane Collection, but its general focus is on the lips and perioral lines, aka smoker’s lines. This injectable gel is soft, and that is its defining feature. The soft gel increases results’ longevity when compared to other fillers used to reduce the fine lines around the mouth.
Restylane Silk Results
Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural looking results in the vertical lines above the lip by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
