What is Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is an FDA-approved injectable made of hyaluronic acid that is best used for enhancement of thin lips and for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth area in patients at least 21 years of age.
Why use Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is a great way for men and women to address lines around the mouth area that are contributing to an aging appearance. Restylane Silk can be used to plump up thin lips and provide a more beautiful look. It is different from other injectables because it is made with smoother, smaller particles of the sugar known as hyaluronic acid, making it an injectable better suited for more subtle changes in areas where precision is important for natural-looking results.
Why do I need to visit a dermatologist for injections?
Visiting a board certified dermatologist such as Dr. Matthew Doppelt at Southeastern Dermatology is the best way to ensure proper results from Restylane Silk injections. A trained professional is highly desirable for safety as well, and the artistry obtained with a trained professional can mean more natural-looking results.
How is Restylane Silk administered?
Restylane Silk is injected into the lips or the fine lines and wrinkles of concern in a short, concise appointment. Dr. Matthew Doppelt consults with his patients before injections so they understand the results they can expect and discuss the possibility of using other dermal fillers or injectables for the best overall look.
What are the potential side effects of Restylane Silk?
As with any injectables, there may be some tenderness, swelling, and redness at the injection site for up to a few days. However, this will disintegrate over approximately 72 hours and many patients enjoy the advantages of their injectable treatment for up to six months after initial treatment. Maintaining the results from Restylane Silk can be achieved with regular injections twice a year.
