Restylane Silk™ is the first FDA-approved product specifically for wrinkles around the mouth and precision lip reflation. The Restylane Silk tag line is “The lips you want; the lines you don’t.” It’s an appropriate one, because that’s exactly what it accomplishes.

What’s Different About Restylane Silk?
Injectables for lips need to flow easily and integrate smoothly into the skin. Restylane Silk is formulated with smaller, smoother hyaluronic gel particles than previous products.
From a doctors’ point of view, Restylane Silk is an elegantly deliverable gel that gently shapes and defines lips easily and precisely. The gel’s consistency and flow make it possible to restore lip fullness AND minimize vertical lines.
From a patient’s perspective, Restylane Silk looks and feels so natural, it’s hard to sense where natural tissue ends and the filler begins. The integration with your own delicate skin tissue is unparalleled.
"Restylane Silk has become the “go to” for most of my patients when it comes to making corrections around the lips. It’s the perfect option for sensitive skin and fragile lips…which is a special advantage for patients who have thin tissue to begin with.
No show-through, no lumpy feel and any swelling resolves very quickly. It’s an injector’s dream gel. The term Silk is very appropriately applied here.”

Where Restylane Silk Is Used
• Lip area
• Vertical lip lines and wrinkles
• Phitral column
• Cupid’s bow
Hyaluronic gels in general provide a very smooth result. They move easily with muscle action because they aren’t stiff or pasty. Because a lot of their volume is from water draw into the skin, there is retained elastic quality. Restylane Silk’s formulation integrates immediately.
