In case you haven’t heard, Restylane Silk was recently approved for release in the United States! It is 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. The key word is subtle. As we have seen, for ages doctors have been injecting lips and lines with a variety of fillers, but this product attacks vertical lip lines without making someone look like a duck.
“Like other areas of the face, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging, often resulting in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip,” says Cheryl Pierce, RN, MSN, at Ageless Beauty Skin Clinic in San Francisco. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these areas. It is made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane and filler 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
