Restylane Silk



Everyone’s facial structure is different including their lip shape and size. “Ideal lips” are proportionate to one’s overall facial structure, where the ideal upper lip is usually about 40% of the total height of the lips and the bottom lip is about 60% of the total height. In order to achieve ideal lips, some people may benefit from lip enhancement with Restylane® Silk.

In 2014, the FDA cleared Restylane® Silk as the first product to enhance the mouth area by increasing the volume of patients’ lips and smoothing wrinkles. This injectable filler is a protective and lubricating gel made of a hyaluronic acid, which is produced naturally by the body. In its FDA clinical study, patients needed one or two injections of Restylane® Silk over a period of two weeks to achieve the best lip volume and wrinkle appearance. The effect lasts about six months in most patients.

Restylane® Silk’s unique, refined formulation is specially designed for precise lip shaping and for smoothing the lines around the mouth to create a natural look. Restylane® Silk contains 0.3% lidocaine to reduce any discomfort during the treatment.

Dr. Lupo was selected by Galderma, the makers of Restylane® Silk, as one of the few physicians in the country to use this products its pre-launch phase to train other physicians and to provide feedback to the company.

Avoid these medications for at least two weeks prior to injections: Aspirin or Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, “G” supplements (ginko, ginseng, garlic), St. John's Wort and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications like Celebrex, as they may cause thinning of the blood.
