Restylane Silk is a filler that is made of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA naturally occurs in our bodies and is necessary for keeping the skin smooth, hydrated, and elastic. As we age, our bodies gradually produce less HA, which leads to skin that is less elastic and more wrinkled. The loss of elasticity and volume is often very obvious in the mouth area. When we talk, eat, drink, laugh, and more, the soft tissue of the lips is stressed by these repetitive motions. Wrinkles appear faster in the lip area because of the combination of HA loss and repetitive motions from lip movement. Restylane Silk helps with a lot of these issues and is also known as a complementary treatment to Restylane.
How Does it Differ From Restylane?
Restylane Silk is a smaller particle formulation. It’s a silky smooth product and is amazing for precise definition and shaping, natural lip enhancement that appears subtle, definition around the lips, and a hydrated appearance. Particle size is important for use in smaller areas where a big plumping effect is not desired. Keep reading to learn more about the uses of Restylane Silk.
Subtle Lip Enhancement
Restylane Silk can provide subtle enhancement to lips that are already naturally full. If a product had a thicker consistency, it would make lips look unnatural and over-filled. Restylane silk is ideal for those who have lips that are naturally thinner, if they want a subtle result.
Defined Lips That Look More Hydrated
Do your lips look wrinkly and dry, even when you’re wearing lip balm? Restylane silk can smooth out these wrinkles and make your lips look beautifully hydrated. You can also benefit from definition to your lip shape, no matter the fullness of your lips. Restylane Silk can emphasize your lips’ natural shape.
Wrinkles and Fine Lines Around the Mouth
This is an outstanding product for filling the vertical lines that are known as “smoker’s lines”. You don’t have to be a smoker to have a problem with these vertical lines. The result leaves a smooth appearance that will take years off your appearance.
Restylane Silk can be used to enhance tear troughs for patients who are younger and do not have a lot of volume loss in the area, or for those who might need a little enhancement along the orbital bone.
Oral Commissure Lines
The oral commissures, which is the area around the corners of your mouth, can form lines, folds, and wrinkles. Small amounts of Restylane Silk can be injected right below the upper lip in the corner of the mouth to fill in this crease and make your lips look slightly upturned.
