Restylane Silk is the newest hyaluronic acid filler to the Restylane family of products. Hyaluronic acid is a common component to the second layer of the skin, and it helps provide structure to the skin. It is a smooth, silky formulation of smaller particle hyaluronic acid gel that provides improvement of fine lines around the mouth and corrects volume loss of the lips as well as smoker lines or “lipstick lines” around the lips.
Restylane Silk differs from other Restylane family members by its particle size. For example the Restylane Lyft has larger particles that make it ideal for lifting tissue and creating deep volume in the face. Regular Restylane has a mid range particle size that makes it versatile as a filler from enhancing lip size to filling in facial volume loss. On the other hand, Restylane Silk has the smallest particle size, allowing it to smooth fine wrinkles such as perioral rhytids (lipstick lines) or for lip augmentation.
The Allergan family of Juvederm products is composed of cohesive gels, meaning they are not formed of particles. They provide a smooth result and attract water to the area of placement. Restylane Silk can be categorized as a fine line filler composed of fine particles. This makes Restylane Silk ideal as a filler for fine lines and wrinkles and for lip augmentation.
Restylane Silk is FDA-approved for the correction of perioral lines (smoker lines or lipstick lines around the mouth) as well as for lip enhancement. In addition to eliminating wrinkles around the mouth and plumping lips. It can also be used to correct other fine lines such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and horizontal neck lines.
Due to the fact that Restylane Silk is broken down by the body, it usually lasts anywhere between 6 to 12 months.
