There’s no way to avoid aging and its effects on your body, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for the lines and wrinkles it leaves on your face. Dermal fillers are a popular and advantageous way to restore the youthfulness to your face without BOTOX® or surgical procedures.
Restylane Silk® is the only FDA-approved dermal filler permitted for enhancing your lips and eliminating the lines around your mouth. So how do you know if Restylane Silk® is the right dermal filler for your needs?
What is Restylane Silk®?
Restylane Silk® is a clear, injectable gel made with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by your body, adding moisture and firmness to your skin. As you age, however, your body produces smaller amounts of hyaluronic acid, which causes visible aging. This particular filler is specially made to restore volume and moisture to the problematic areas around your mouth.
Not only does it fill in fine lines and wrinkles, but it’s also used for increasing the volume of your lips without them looking fake or unnatural.
Clinical studies show that 77 percent of participating patients showed visible improvements in their lip fullness after eight weeks, and maintained that fullness six months after their treatment.
What is the Procedure Like?
Restylane Silk® is made with extremely fine particles of hyaluronic acid gel, so your results are more customizable. Your procedure can easily be done during your lunch break because it’s so quick. The treatment areas will first be cleansed to prevent infection.
Restylane Silk® actually contains lidocaine in the formula to eliminate the need for topical anesthetics. Our specialist will confirm with you what areas you want to have treated based on the consultation you had before the appointment. Most patients go back to their normal activities afterward.
What’s the Recovery Like?
Recovery is brief, if you even need to recover at all! The injected areas might be slightly uncomfortable or red/swollen, but these effects disappear after 24 hours in the vast majority of patients. You’ll see results immediately, especially if you’re having your lines and wrinkles filled in.
You won’t see full results for a few days, though. The results should last for six months to a year. It depends on how deep the wrinkles are, how much you had injected and how your body absorbs the gel.
