Restylane® Silk: How Long Do the Results Last?

lip-volumeThere have been a variety of treatments developed to enhance the shape and volume of the lips—one of the most defining features of the face; however, only brand-new Restylane® Silk has been FDA-approved for this purpose, as well as to diminish the appearance of fine lines above the mouth. Restylane® Silk is designed to provide natural looking and long lasting results, and if you’re considering this product, our skilled dermatologist Deborah H. Atkin, MD can determine if this remarkable formula can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

Restylane® Silk, like the other members of the Restylane® family of products, is comprised of a hyaluronic acid-based solution. This material is biocompatible and developed from the same substance that naturally occurs in the body. This dermal filler is further distinguished by the particle gel composition, which allows for the smoothest, most natural looking and beautiful effect possible. Dr. Atkin will use an ultrafine needle to administer Restylane® Silk to enhance your comfort, and she utilizes an artistic eye to obtain an aesthetically appealing and balanced outcome.

After your treatment, you may begin to see some immediate effects; however, you may immediately see some swelling and, in some cases, bruising in the treated area This will resolve in a matter of days. In some cases, two sessions will be required to optimize your results and ensure your cosmetic goals are best realized. Restylane® Silk is long lasting but not permanent. Most patients can expect the effects to last up to one year, though individual results will vary. If you want to extend the benefits beyond this period, maintenance treatments are recommended about twice a year or as often as Dr. Atkin suggests.
