Restylane® Silk can help improve the appearance of aging around your lips. Thinning, loss of shape, and an increase in vertical lines and wrinkles are all examples of how our lips can change over time.
How does Restylane® Silk work?
Restylane® Silk is an FDA-approved injectable for plumping the lips and filling fine lines around the mouth. A dermatologist injects the filler, which is made from hyaluronic acid, one or two times over the course of two weeks.

What is a Restylane® Silk Session like?
Using a very fine needle, your provider will inject Restylane® Silk into your lips and the area around your mouth. To minimize discomfort, numbing agents may be applied before treatment, but since Restylane Silk also contains lidocaine, the injections are not painful and discomfort is minimal. Depending on your individual treatment needs, a series of injections may be required over a two-week period. Most treatment sessions take about 30 minutes to complete. There is no downtime associated with Restylane® Silk, so you can go about your daily activities normally. We recommend that you avoid touching your lips for at least six hours after treatment. It’s not uncommon to experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness at the injection site, but these effects are only temporary.
What Results Can Be Expected from Restylane® Silk?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect a noticeable smoothing of wrinkles and an increase in lip volume and fullness. The effects of Restylane® Silk last about six months as the hyaluronic acid works to stimulate collagen production, and you will only need follow-up treatments to maintain your smooth, more defined lips. In clinical trials, 98 percent of patients reported a noticeable improvement in overall lip fullness within 14 days of the initial treatment, and 76 percent of people still reported an improvement in the appearance of their lips after six months.
