What to Expect During your Restylane® Silk Treatment?
During your Restylane® Silk treatment appointment, your lips and the skin around your mouth will be cleansed. Because the lips can be a sensitive area, we then apply a numbing cream to ensure that you are comfortable during treatment. A fine needle is then used to artfully inject the Restylane® Silk into the necessary areas to achieve your aesthetic goals. Once the filler is placed, your injector may gently rub your lips to make sure that the filler is evenly distributed. Overall, the entire treatment process usually only takes 15-30 minutes to complete.
Restylane® Silk Results
Following Restylane® Silk injections, there is no downtime, so you can feel free to return to your normal activities as soon as you wish. Some patients may experience slight bruising, redness, swelling, or tenderness at the treatment site, which will fade with time. While some results may be noticeable right away, final results will be noticeable after about two weeks and can last anywhere from six months to one year. Be sure to follow our post-treatment instructions for the best possible outcomes.
