We are excited to introduce a new product to our filler family. Restylane Silk is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and to soften wrinkles around the mouth area. Just like its sister products, Restylane and Perlane, Restylane Silk is a hyaluronic acid ( a substance found naturally in the body) based product that contains lidocaine for patient comfort during injection. It’s the “go to” product for someone who wants to improve the signs of aging around the mouth and restore volume to the lips, enabling your clinician to deliver a very natural look and effect to the lips. You may also notice less bleeding of your lip liner and lipsticks after your injections, due to restored volume. Results are immediate but some risks include swelling or bruising of the lips and surrounding area for a few days. Restylane Silk can be used in conjunction with other fillers and your treatment can be combined with popular treatments like Botox or Dysport. We recommend that you discontinue any medicines or herbal supplements that could contain blood thinning properties for 5 to 7 days before treatment. We also recommend that you start taking the Herbal supplements Arnica and Bromelain on the day before your procedure, to reduce the risk of bruising and swelling after your treatment. If you have a history of fever blisters or cold sores you will need to pre-treat with an anti-viral medication, which can be called into your pharmacy.
Our staff will be glad to help you with any concerns or questions you may have and can schedule you with one of our expert injectors. You may come in for consult only if you are curious or if you feel comfortable about the procedure, you can have a consult and the treatment on the same day. The day of treatment, you will have photos taken and a topical numbing cream will be applied to the desired area. Your provider will review the procedure with you before injecting the product. Afterwards, you will be given ice packs and will use ice off and on for 48 hours then enjoy your result!
