Products in the Restylane® family add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane®, Restylane-L® or Restylane® Silk can also add fullness and definition to lips, providing naturallooking results with just one treatment.
Areas of Treatment with the Restylane® family of products include:
- Tear Troughs (under the eyes)
- Nasolabial Folds
- Cheeks and Midface
HOW DOES RESTYLANE® WORK?
Restylane® works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. It is a dermal filler, similar to Juvederm or Dysport in that a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, takes the place of lost facial volume and restores your once in youthful contours!
Restylane® is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, and eventually breaks down naturally, like the real thing!
Designed specifically for lips and the lines around them
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?
Just like the other members of the Restylane® family, Restylane® Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid — a sugar that is naturally present in your skin.
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.
Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these areas. That’s why it’s made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
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 on a 5-point scale) eight weeks after treatment.
59% of patients treated with Restylane® Silk maintained lip fullness six months after treatment
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.
Restylane or Restylane-L give you a level of lip enhancement that cannot be achieved with over-the-counter cosmetic products.
Patients should be limited to 1.5 mL per lip per treatment. If a volume of more than 3 mL total is needed to achieve optimal correction, a follow-up treatment session is recommended.
Made of a clear gel with a unique formulation, Restylane or Restylane-L can provide the fullness and definition needed to create lips that are just right for you.
To avoid bruising and bleeding, you should not use these products if you have recently used drugs that thin your blood or prevent clotting.
