For a smooth natural looking smile, designed specifically for lips and the lines around them.

Restylane Silk has recently been approved for release in the United States! It’s the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age.


Just like the other members of the Restylane family, Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid — a sugar that is naturally present in your skin.


Like other areas of the face, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging as an individual gets 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 areas. That’s why it’s made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in otherRestylane products.

In a clinical study of patients treated with Restylane Silk or no treatment, clinical investigators reported:

  • 77% of patients treated with Restylane Silk showed at least a one-point improvement in lip fullness (measured on on a 5-point scale) eight weeks after treatment.
  • 59% of patients treated with Restylane Silk maintained lip fullness six months after treatment

Restylane® Silk’s unique particle gel formula, along with an ultrafine needle designed for improved accuracy, helps give you softer, more precise results — just what you need for a natural-looking smile.



In the same clinical study, patients treated with Restylane Silk reported fast-acting, long-lasting results:

  • 98% of patients reported a visible improvement in lip fullness 14 days after injection
  • 76% of patients still had lip improvement six months following injection

As with any other hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into the lips, the most common side effect is temporary swelling. Please see below for Important Safety Information for Restylane Silk.



What if we told you that there was a new method for smoothing wrinkles and enhancing lips that was completely natural with no risk of allergic reaction? What if we also told you that the effects would last for 4 to 8 months and then dissolve into water and depart your body without leaving a trace? Well, it’s all true with Restylane and Perlane, two cosmetic fillers by by Q-Med Laboratories. Restylane and Perlane are non-animal based products derived from hyaluronic acid (present in all living organisms) in the form of a clear gel. Restylane is now FDA approved in the US. Once injected into the skin, it works with the body’s own hyaluronic acid to create volume.Restylane Restylane is classified as cosmetic fillers. Restylane and Perlane are probably the most exciting non-surgical advancements in facial rejuvenation today. While there are numerous injectable fillers on the market today, many of them have their drawbacks ranging from allergic reactions to short life spans. Restylane and Perlane are safe and natural.In 1996, the biotechnology company Q-Med of Sweden created a genetically engineered version of hyaluronic acid (Restylane and Perlane). Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide, or natural sugar, that is found largely in the skin. Its primary function is to provide volume and pliability to the skin. The unique characteristic of hyaluronic acid is its ability to bind with water up to 1000 times its volume. This property makes it ideal as a filler agent, for even while hyaluronic acid filler is being naturally degraded it continues to attract more water to it. This characteristic allows it to hold its shape even longer.Restylane-LIf you want a more youthful appearance, but you’e concerned about the potential discomfort from treatment, you can get beautiful results and a more comfortable treatment experience with Restylane-L. By combining lidocaine with Restylane® , Restylane-L helps reduce discomfort during and after treatment.
