Am I a Candidate for Restylane® Silk?

Patients desiring plumper lips are often candidates for a Restylane® treatment. However, patients with a history of allergies, hypersensitivity, and bleeding disorders may not benefit from treatment. Patients should be 22 years of age or older to choose Restylane®. If you are looking for a cosmetic treatment to volumize lips, you should consider Restylane®.

What Can I Expect from Restylane® Silk?

Restylane can increase the volume and plumpness of your lip line. After an injection, patients may notice swelling, redness, or numbness near their lips. This usually fades within a few days after a treatment. Individuals noticed an increased lip fullness 14 days after their treatment. With Restylane, you can experience a fuller, more noticeable lip appearance. Patients can also experience smoother skin around the injection areas.

Why Choose Restylane® Silk?

As you get older, lines around your mouth can actually cause your lips to lose shape and become thinner. This filler not only plumps up your lips, but can address various signs of aging by improving symmetry and providing a more defined double curve or “cupid’s bow” at the top of your lip. In addition to improving age lines around the mouth, Restylane Silk is also known to improve “smoker’s lines.”   Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved lip augmentation and wrinkle correcting solution on the market. As opposed to other options, it also provides the most natural-looking results to plump up your lips and correct fine lines. One of the many benefits of this procedure is its inclusion of a numbing lidocaine anesthetic, which means that it is a fairly painless procedure for most candidates. If you’re looking for a subtle change for natural-looking, fuller lips, Restylane Silk may be the right choice for you.
