Restylane Silk is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler and is FDA approved for rejuvenation of the lips, perioral wrinkles, and bags under eyes.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the body that has an important role in the maintenance of skin volume and hydration, joint lubrication and cushioning, as well as eye volume and shape.
It’s incredibly hydrophilic and retains water, absorbing more than 1,000 times it’s weight, therefore adds volume to skin.
Hyaluronic acid also binds with elastin and collagen, providing essential nutrients to them, which provides elasticity, structure and volume to the skin.
Restylane Silk contains a non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, and it’s biodegradable and fully biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid.
With aging, lips and the surrounding perioral area loose volume and acquire the unsightly vertical lines.
These vertical lines are commonly referred to as smoker’s lines or lipstick lines (they become noticeable when lipstick “bleeds”). Various factors contribute to the formation of the vertical lines on the lips and the perioral area: genetics, age, lifestyle and repetitive habits, such as repetitive regular lip movements.
The combination of neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport) with hyaluronic acid containing injectables prolongs the positive rejuvenating effect.
Aside from smoothing the fine lines, Restylane Silk is used for lip augmentation.
It’s formulated with lidocaine, which makes the procedure comfortable.
The effect is visible immediately, with full results exhibited in a few days.
Longevity of the results is from six months to one year, depending on the individual’s skin and health characteristics, muscle movement and injector’s technique.
There are, of course, some instances when the use of Restylane Silk is contraindicated.
Only licensed and certified professionals are to be trusted with this treatment.
