What is the History of Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® was first approved for use in the US by the FDA in 2003, and developer Galderma has continued to grow the line with excellent tailored solutions like Restylane® Silk, which uses finer particles for natural-looking detail work.

Prior to Treatment
We apply a topical, lidocaine-based cream to numb the areas being treated. After waiting 10 to 15 minutes for it to take effect, we fully cleanse and prep the target areas.
Restylane® Silk lip injections are applied to the target areas. The lidocaine cream, as well as the lidocaine in the Silk itself, should make sure you feel only a pinch and some pressure. This process generally takes 30 to 40 minutes, depending on how many injections are needed. For certain cases, we can use a cannula, a blunt-tipped needle that allows us to minimize injections and potential for bruising.
After Treatment & Results
While most injectables have less swelling with ice, Restylane® Silk actually swells more with cold compresses, so aftercare is minimal. There can be swelling and potentially bruising, but this should subside within a week. Full correction may take a week, but results are immediate and will continue for six to nine months after treatment.
