Safe and Proven

Restylane Silk injectable procedure avoids the typical risks and complications associated with a surgery. Even among dermal fillers, Restylane Silk is the first and only FDA approved filler specifically meant to plump the lips and fill fine lines around the mouth.

This med spa injectable procedure is based on a unique gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally found substance in the body to support the skin structure and maintain smooth and supple skin.



Restylane Silk procedure must be administered only by a trained dermal filler expert at a qualified medical spa. The treatment provider will inject Restylane Silk gel into the targeted areas of the lips and in the lines around the mouth with the help of an ultrafine needle.

The amount of filler used per treatment should be limited to 1.0 ml in case of correcting fine lines around the mouth and 1.5 ml in case of lip augmentation. If the injections are administered in the wrong location or in excess volume, it could create bruising, swelling or other adverse effects at the injection site.

Restylane Silk gel is composed of tiny, smooth particles, which help to ensure consistent looking results. The gel is injected with ultrafine needles designed for precision, which makes the results appear more subtle and natural looking.

The results are usually sustainable for about six months, and the treatment can be repeated in the future for extended benefits.
