If you would like plumper lips and fewer wrinkles around your mouth area, contact Farber Plastic Surgery led by Scott T. Farber, MD, FACS a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and ask us about the all-new Restylane® Silk.
What Is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is an injectable gel that was just approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in June 2014 for lip augmentation and filling in fine lip lines. Restylane® Silk uses a tiny particle gel formula with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that facilitates cell repair and structure, to stimulate your body’s own healing processes. This refreshes and rejuvenates your skin, adding volume and tone for a soft, natural look. In addition, the included lidocaine minimizes discomfort during the injection.
Benefits of Restylane® Silk
Restylane® Silk will plump up your lips, reduce wrinkles, and soften vertical lines above the lips for up to six months after treatment. This can give you a fuller smile and a more youthful appearance, leading to enhanced self-image and self-confidence.
How Are Restylane® Silk Injections Administered?
First, the treatment area will be cleansed and prepped. The Restylane® Silk gel will be inserted gently through an ultra-fine needle. You will notice a difference immediately. The treatment session takes less than an hour, and you may return to your normal routine afterwards.
Preparing for Your Restylane® Silk Injection
The day of the procedure, do not take aspirin, St John’s wort, or vitamin E supplements. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), such as Advil or Aleve, should also be avoided. This will help minimize bleeding and bruising at the injection site.

Do not take aspirin, NSAIDs, St. John’s wort, or vitamin E for the first week after treatment; these can exacerbate bruising or bleeding.
