RESTYLANE SILK FROM THE GALDERMA FAMILY OF PRODUCTS

Restylane® Silk a silkier, smoother, natural-looking lips

Finally, a filler that can help you achieve your ideal lips. 
Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved product 
specifically designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing 
of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years of age and older.

The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane® products.

WHAT SHOULD I TELL MY DOCTOR

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breast feeding, taking medicines that affect blood clotting, like aspirin, an NSAID or warfarin.  These medicines may put you at an increased risk of bruising or bleeding at the treatment site. Tell your doctor if you have a skin reaction like cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives, or an infection. Treatment with RESTYLANE SILK should be delayed until the reaction goes away. Tell your doctor if you are taking medicines that affect your immune system.
