Restylane® is one of the most popular dermal fillers in the world, renowned for its ability to fill wrinkles and creases and return volume to the cheeks. But you may not have heard of Restylane® Silk. The FDA approved this addition to the Restylane filler line in January 2015 specifically for lip enhancement.
At Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York, we use Restylane® Silk to add natural definition and symmetry to the lips, and to fill vertical lines. Prior to a lip injection treatment, a consultation will be held with one of our our board-certified dermatologists to provide a personalized treatment plan.
What is Restylane® Silk?
All of the Restylane fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. Its job is to plump and hydrate the skin. It can do this because hyaluronic acid can hold 1000 times its weight in water. The difference with Restylane® Silk is that its hyaluronic acid particles are much smaller than those found in other fillers, making it able to plump the lips without overdoing it. This creates natural-looking enhancement.
Restylane® Silk Treatment Areas
- Cupid’s bow — We add definition to this area in the middle of the upper lip, which looks the most attractive when it is well defined and when the two sides are equal.
- Side-to-side symmetry — We make both sides of the lips equal for patients bothered by uneven lips.
- Fullness in the center — Beautiful lips are more full in the center, with that fullness tapering off at the corners.
- Profile projection — When someone is seeing your lips from the side, the upper lip should project slightly beyond the lower lip.
