FDA Approves Restylane® Silk to Get the Lift and Lips You Desire

Galderma’s Restylane® Silk is the first HA filler to gain FDA approval for use in the fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and add volume to lips. The FDA studies revealed that 98% of patients reported improvement in their lip fullness two weeks post injection with Restylane® Silk and 76% were still reporting improvement after 6 months. The new injectable filler is made by the same company as Restylane® to fill moderate and severe wrinkles around the face. Similar to Restylane®, Perlane®, Juverderm®, and Voluma™, Restylane® Silk is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body. As people age, the hyaluronic acid levels in the body begin to decrease. Board-certified plastic surgeons utilize injectables such as Restylane® Silk to replace the needed volume across the face and mouth; which restores a patient’s natural youthful appearance.

Restylane® Silk is a hyaluronic acid with a lower viscosity than other hyaluronic acids, making it ideal for treatment around mouth and lips. It also contains an anesthetic lidocaine that helps to create little or no pain during injections. Within two weeks of treatment, patient will notice fuller lips and a smoother area around their mouth for at least six months following treatment.

The average treatment takes 30 minutes. Within minutes upon completion, fillers begin to work wonders with a minimal amount of discomfort. There may be mild swelling or bruising, but this is quite common and tends to last just a day or so. You leave the office feeling refreshed and, within days, looking years younger.
