Like other areas of the face, the lips and lines around the mouth show signs of aging as you get older, resulting in thinner lips with loss of definition and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. If you want well-defined, symmetrical lips, Water’s Edge Dermatology offers Restylane® Silk. Its unique formula is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control, resulting in silkier, smoother lips.
What is Restylane Silk and how does it work?
Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved treatment to specifically address lips and the lines around them. Thanks to smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane® products, this injectable filler smooths wrinkles around your mouth and restores shape and symmetry to your lips for a better smile.
What can I expect from Restylane Silk treatment?
To determine proper placement of the injections, it’s important for your Water’s Edge Dermatology practitioner to understand your aesthetic goals. After a consultation, your provider injects Restylane® Silk just below the surface of the lips or skin above the lips. The injections only take a few minutes and since there is no downtime involved, you can resume your day immediately after the procedure.
When will I see results and how long will they last?
Most patients notice visible improvement in lip fullness within 14 days after treatment with Restylane® Silk, with results lasting for up to six months.
