What is Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is one product in the comprehensive Restylane line of dermal fillers. Restylane Silk is a facial filler made of a silky smooth hyaluronic acid formula that enhances your skin’s fullness and hydration. The tissue of the lips is different from the rest of the facial skin and is regularly stressed as you speak, eat, drink, laugh, smile, and make other facial expressions. The lips also tend to dry out easily, and they become thinner and less shapely as the muscles around the mouth weaken and flatten with age. To reverse these effects and enhance the lips with natural-looking results, Dr. Bitter performs lip augmentation using Restylane Silk.
There are many benefits to using Restylane Silk to plump and shape your lips. Many of Dr. Bitter’s patients report enhanced self-esteem and a more positive outlook regarding their appearance after their Restylane session!
