Restylane Silk

Restylane® Silk is a dermal filler that is used to add volume to the lips and minimize the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth. It can be used to enhance the shape and fullness of the lips or correct age-related concerns, such as loss of volume and wrinkles. It is the first and only product to receive FDA approval for use specifically in the lips and around the mouth, although Restylane Silk is excellent for treating any facial lines.

Leveraging his many years of experience working with dermal fillers, Dr. Russo can use Restylane Silk to address almost any complaint concerning the lip or mouth area, from correcting an asymmetry to sculpting perfectly full or pouty lips. Some of the most common uses for Restylane Silk are:

  • Increase volume of the lips
  • Improve the projection of the upper lip
  • Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles that radiate out from the lips
  • Provide a subtle lift to the corner of the lips
  • Correct asymmetry of the lips
  • Enhance the shape of the cupid’s bow (the m-shaped area of the upper lip)
  • Restore youthful shape to the lips

How Restylane Silk Works

Like other Restylane products, the active ingredient in Restylane Silk is hyaluronic acid, a well-known dermal filler that has been used in cosmetic medicine since 2005. Found throughout the human, hyaluronic acid acts as a cushioning and lubricating agent for our skin, joints, eyes, and hair. Hyaluronic acid is one of the substances that gives youthful skin and lips with their plump, supple appearance. Unfortunately, we produce less hyaluronic acid as we grow older, contributing to signs of aging such as volume loss and wrinkles.
