What Is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is a hyaluronic acid injection, but unlike other dermal fillers, Restylane® Silk was formulated specifically to treat lips that are thinning and losing shape due to aging. Restylane® Silk will also treat the lines around the lips. Restylane® Silk is the only temporary lip filler in Southington, Connecticut, that has been FDA approved for this purpose in patients older than 21. You can think of Restylane® Silk as your go-to hyaluronic acid injection for anything involving your mouth.
How Does Restylane® Silk Work?Your lips and surrounding skin get their plumpness from a variety of natural substances, once of which is hyaluronic acid. The job of the hyaluronic acid is to attract the water in your body, and then retain it once it has arrived. So by injecting Restylane® Silk, a meticulously formulated form of hyaluronic acid, into your skin, this moisture can be regained, causing your skin to look smoother and your lips to look fuller. What makes Restylane® Silk different the other Restylane® injections is that Restylane® Silk is composed of smaller particles and it uses a finer needle. That means that this temporary lip filler can be injected with improved accuracy, and it will make more subtle differences that still have a big impact on your appearance.
What to Expect After Restylane® Silk InjectionsA Restylane® Silk treatment at our Southington, Connecticut medical spa will only take 30 minutes or less. We will strategically inject the temporary lip filler to improve the fullness of your lips, and you will be on your way. You might experience some slight swelling after the Restylane® Silk injection, but know that this will go down after a day or two and all that will remain is your luscious new lips. The temporary lip filler should last for about six months, give or take, and then you will need to visit our Southington, CT office again for another Restylane® Silk treatment.
