Restylane® Silk

Lip Augmentation In New Jersey

Dermal Fillers

You say a lot of words each day, flash a lot of smiles, and maybe even blow a few kisses. Wouldn't it be great to know that when the attention is focused on the source of all that activity, people will be seeing a healthy, full, and well-defined pair of lips? Patients interested in lip enhancement or restoration should consider Restylane® Silk from New Jersey's Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care and Laser Center. Dr. Deborah Spey and Dr. Rachael Hartman offer the treatment because of its natural-looking, long-lasting results.

Restylane® Silk is an FDA-approved dermal or soft tissue filler specifically formulated for use in and around the lip area. The injectable treatment is suitable for patients looking to enhance naturally thin lips, to replace volume lost as a result of the aging process, to smooth wrinkles around the mouth, or simply to bring their lips more in proportion with the rest of their face.

Q: What can Restylane® Silk do?

A: Restylane® products are frequently used to smooth out lines and wrinkles, with Silk specifically targeting lines around the mouth. Silk is also designed for lip restoration, subtly bringing an attractive roundness and contour and fullness to lips that may otherwise have lost their definition.

Q: How does Restylane® Silk work?

A: Restylane® Silk fills in vertical lip lines around the mouth to make the skin look smoother, and also better define lips and restore their youthful contours.

Q: How long is a Restylane® Silk treatment session?

A: One treatment session with Restylane® Silk usually lasts less than an hour and can vary depending on the type and extent of correction each patient is looking for.

Q: What are the possible side effects?

A: Common side effects that may occur are swelling, redness, soreness, and bruising at the injection sites. The first three tend to be mild and fade within hours, while bruising can last seven to 10 days.

Q: How many Restylane® Silk treatment sessions are required?

A: While most patients can attain their desired results after just one session, each patient has unique needs and may require different amounts of Restylane® Silk or different numbers of sessions. Depending on your physiology and how well you respond to Restylane® Silk immediately and over time, your doctor can recommend you on a possible maintenance schedule.

Restylane® Silk is part of the Restylane® family of fillers. These are injectable treatments that can fill in carefully selected target areas of the skin to help round them out, to restore a softer, more youthful look. The main ingredient in the Restylane® line of fillers—including Restylane® Silk—is hyaluronic acid.


Why Is Hyaluronic Acid So Important?

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that is produced naturally throughout the body. In an average human, about a third of the total amount of hyaluronic acid in the body breaks down and is synthesized every day. Our body uses this substance for a number of important functions: In our skin, it is used in the repair and regeneration processes, and, along with collagen and elastin, is one of the building blocks of healthy skin.

With their ability to absorb and retain large amounts of water, hyaluronic acid molecules act like sponges.

Since every patient's face is different, so too is the ideal lip. At our practice, we use Restylane® Silk to:

  • Provide precise and controlled lip shaping and definition
  • Add a natural-looking and proportionate boost of volume to the lips, whether they are naturally on the thinner side or have lost their fullness during the aging process
  • Fill in fine lines and vertical wrinkles around the mouth

Because of the more delicate balance required for this area, Restylane® Silk is formulated differently from the other products in the Restylane® family. Silk contains smaller, smoother particles of hyaluronic acid. The injectable is made this way specifically to provide more refined, natural results, without projection, and allow for precision during injection.

A Restylane® Silk treatment session involves very fine needles, and an anesthetic may be applied in advance to make the injection more comfortable. The skill of the injector and the choice of injection sites are among the most important factors that affect the results you receive from the treatments.

The injection sites are precisely selected by your doctor based on the areas to be treated and the results you would like to achieve. After these sites are treated with Restylane® Silk, your doctor may gently massage the area to ensure that the filler is properly distributed, and to further mold and customize your results.

Most patients are able to resume their regular activities after treatment. You may receive some aftercare instructions from your doctor, such as how to treat the area and to avoid using makeup or exposing the treated areas to the sun.

The treatment process itself generally takes less than an hour, with results that can last for six months.

Your new youthful contour is typically noticeable immediately. Minor side effects, including bruising, redness, or swelling, are possible, but should resolve over two to 10 days if they appear. While potential swelling can make your lips look very full right after the Restylane® Silk session, the complete effect of treatment will be noticeable after it subsides.

Talk to our doctors about regular maintenance visits to preserve your results.
