Restylane Silk

Restylane Silk with Elizabeth A. Kinsley, MD

As we get older, our lips begin to show signs of aging. These include getting thinner, losing their natural shape, and having more outwardly visible lines. Created to combat these issues by providing lip definition and line control, Restylane Silk can give you smoother looking lips while remaining natural looking. The lip contouring procedure will leave your lips ideally shaped and silky smooth, just as its name implies. Restylane Silk is the first FDA approved product specifically designed for lip enhancement. It is your path to a perfect smile.


Healthy lips have a natural symmetry that blends into the face. Restylane Silk injections restore this natural symmetry to aging lips that may have lost it over time. The treatment is applied by injecting the lip filler, which is made from hyaluronic acid, into the lips one or two times over the course of a two-week period. Results last for about six months.

Recovery Time

After receiving initial Restylane Silk injections, patients may notice some swelling or bruising on the lips and in the general area around them. These side effects will generally subside within two weeks of treatment, at which time you will notice the positive results of Restylane Silk.

To minimize bruising and swelling, it is suggested that you ice the injection site directly after treatment while avoiding excessive sun exposure, aspirin, vitamin E, and St. John’s Wort for about a week after treatment.
