Restylane Silk is facial filler made up of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA delivers nutrients to the skin and helps
the skin retain its natural moisture and softness. HA also gives volume to the skin. The unique formulation
in Restylane Silk helps to provide a very natural lifting capacity to the skin, ideally suited for the lips and
lines around the mouth.
How long will Restylane Silk last?
Restylane Silk results last for at least six months. The average treatment time range is 15-30 minutes. Dr. Banki will apply a topical anesthetic prior to the procedure.
What are the indications for Restylane Silk?
Are there any side effects with Restylane Silk?
Restylane® Silk is for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral wrinkles in patients over the age of 21.
The most common side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, tenderness and lump formation.
These are typically mild in severity and typically resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less
than 14 days in lips. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infection, recurrence of herpetic
eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site. One risk of using this product is unintentional
injection into blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if this does happen the
complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications include vision abnormalities,
blindness, stroke, or permanent necrosis of the skin. However, these risks are extremely rare on the
hands of an expert dermatologist with familiarity of the facial anatomy.
