Along with age comes with the thinning of our lips, lost volume and shape, and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® Silk was designed to specifically provide natural looking results to these areas rather than other Restylane® products.
By using smaller, smoother gel particles Restylane® Silk adds natural looking plumpness and smooths the fine lines that spread around the upper lip. As with other Restylane® fillers, Restylane® Silk is a hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in the skin.
In clinical studies 98% of patients noticed visibly fuller lips only 14 days after injection. Almost all patients reported visible improvement in fullness 6 months after injection.
Once Dr. Geppert knows you’re a perfect candidate for Restylane® Silk topical numbing can be applied to the lips to make the injections more comfortable. Some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection site, but it usually only lasts anywhere from a few hours to a few days.
As with all injectable fillers there are side effects such as swelling or bruising. Talk with your doctor today to find out if you are a candidate for Restylane® Refyne or Defyne.
Patients will see noticeable results six months after the treatment and possibly even up to one year. Although a numbing cream is applied to the injection site prior to treatment, some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising for up to a few days.
