What Benefits Can Restylane® Silk Achieve?
Made from a smooth hyaluronic acid-based substance, Restylane Silk can achieve natural-looking improvement in the volume and shape of the lips with minimal risk of an allergic reaction. Additionally, Restylane Silk can:
- Improve definition of the upper and/or lower lip
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and creases located above the lip and around the mouth
- Offer instantaneous results without surgery
- Result in little to no downtime
- Achieve long-lasting results without patients committing to a permanent procedure
Who Is a Good Candidate for Restylane® Silk?
Restylane Silk is designed for patients age 21 years and older who desire fuller, plumper, and more defined lips or who wish to treat vertical wrinkles around the mouth. You should also be in good general health and have reasonable expectations for the outcome. Dr. Brunner will discuss your goals, review your concerns, and develop a customized treatment plan during your initial consultation. Should Restylane Silk be less than ideal for your desired outcome and needs, she will provide an alternative lip augmentation option that can optimize your outcome.
What Is Restylane® Silk Treatment Like?
You comfort, results, and safety are our highest priorities. Dr. Brunner uses ultrafine cannulas (tubes) to deliver the filler into a series of targeted areas on and around the lips. Local anesthetic and cold compresses are available to minimize your discomfort, and most patients find the treatment quick and relatively easy. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to complete, after which point you may return to your normal activities. Some minor bruising, swelling, and redness may be present in the treated area, and these effects should fade quickly.
When Will I See Restylane® Silk Results?
One of the many advantages of Restylane Silk is the quick result. Patients should see immediate improvement of their concerns, including fuller lips and smoother skin around the mouth, by the end of their appointment. This technique is temporary, so patients should be prepared for the results to fade over time. Conversely, patients can choose to have maintenance injections performed as recommended by Dr. Brunner to extend the results. Most patients can expect Restylane Silk to last up to six months.
How Much Does Restylane® Silk Cost?
The price of Restylane Silk will depend on the volume of filler needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. During your initial consultation Dr. Brunner and our team will review the full cost of your treatment so you know what to expect.
