Dr. Delia offers many non-surgical options to help rejuvenate your facial features. One of these treatments is Restylane® Silk injections, designed specifically for lips and the fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
Restylane® Silk has recently been approved for release in the United States. It’s the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age.
How does Restylane® Silk work?
Since this is a member of the Restylane® family, this is also a clear gel of hyaluronic acid that is naturally present in your skin. However, the particles are smaller and smoother and work best around the mouth and lips.
Restylane® Silk’s unique particle gel formula, along with an ultrafine needle designed for improved accuracy, helps give you softer, more precise results — just what you need for a natural-looking smile.
What makes Restylane® Silk different from other Restylane® products?
Like other areas of the face, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging as an individual gets older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip.
In a clinical study of patients treated with Restylane® Silk or no treatment, clinical investigators reported:
- 77% of patients treated with Restylane® Silk showed at least a one-point improvement in lip fullness (measured on a 5-point scale) eight weeks after treatment.
- 59% of patients treated with Restylane® Silk maintained lip fullness six months after treatment
If you have noticed that your lips are thinner than you remembered and there are fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth, we recommend you investigate the possibility of Restylane® treatments.
