Lip fullness is a sign of youthful vitality. Whether you have had thin lips all your life or your lips have thinned as you age, a lip filler could be just the solution you're looking for. And with Restylane Silk, you can put your concerns about big lips that look like they've been stung by a bee to rest. Restylane Silk's unique formula ensures natural-looking results. So set aside your Kylie Jenner fears and read on about Restylane Silk for lips in our Scottsdale and Chandler medical spas.
Restylane Silk for Lips
Restylane Silk is an FDA-approved, hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can be used to treat mild or moderate facial wrinkles around the lips, fine lines around the mouth, and thin or asymmetrical lips. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that helps to attract and bind moisture to the skin. Because this compound can be found in our bodies naturally, there is an extremely low chance of adverse reactions to Restylane Silk.
What to Expect From a Restylane Silk Treatment at Ultra Smooth Skin
You can expect high-class treatment and a personalized experience from any of our three locations when you decide to visit Ultra Smooth Skin for your Restylane Silk treatments. There will be an initial consultation before the procedure and then a short treatment. Our staff will answer any additional questions you may have and give you a few post-treatment recommendations.
The Restylane Silk Consultation
Before we schedule any treatments for you, we will ask you to come in for a personalized consultation. During this consultation, our staff will evaluate your skin, ask questions about your goals and cosmetic concerns, and evaluate your medical history, overall health, prescriptions, and supplements that you currently take. This information will allow us to recommend the best course of action in order for you to achieve the look you've always dreamed of. If we believe that Restylane Silk is the right choice for you, we will work with you to determine the best time for an appointment, whether it is immediately after the consultation or at a later date.
The Restylane Silk Procedure
The procedure is generally quick and, for most clients, relatively painless. Restylane Silk contains 0.3 percent lidocaine, an injectable numbing agent, to ensure maximum comfort during the injections. Once you are comfortable and numbed, the aesthetic injector will use a very thin needle to administer the filler into the lips.
Restylane Silk Results and Follow-up Treatments
Most patients are able to return to their normal routine following treatment, though we advise you to avoid direct sunlight and intense workouts. There is no dedicated downtime necessary after this procedure but you will likely experience some swelling, mild itching or bruising around the injection sites. Once the swelling has subsided, you will see fuller, younger-looking lips without the wrinkles and fine lines you may have had before.

How does Restylane Silk work?
Restylane Silk is a thin gel comprised of hyaluronic acid. This natural plumping agent is injected into and around your lips to provide smooth, natural-looking volume and symmetry.
Why Should I Choose Ultra Smooth Skin for My Restylane Silk Treatment?
Ultra Smooth Skin is an elite, Allergan® Black Diamond-certified medical aesthetic practice. This award is given by Allergan, the makers of Botox® Cosmetic, to the top 1 percent of practices that provide the most injectable treatments of any other practice in the nation. We are immensely proud of this status, so you can rest easy knowing that you're in good hands.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Restylane Silk?
Anyone who has naturally thin lips, mismatched lips, lips that have thinned with age or mild-to-moderate lines and wrinkles around the mouth can benefit from Restylane Silk. You are a good candidate if you are at least 21 years of age and in good health.
Who Shouldn't Get Restylane Silk?
If you have a history of severe allergies, are allergic to lidocaine, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have any type of bleeding disorder, you should consult with your physician about whether or not this treatment is right for you. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not receive dermal filler treatments of any kind.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is FDA-approved for lip enhancement and treatment of lines and wrinkles around the mouth. If you are looking for additional treatments, let us know during your consultation, and we will make recommendations about appropriate dermal fillers for your other problem areas.
How is Restylane Silk Different From Restylane-L?
Restylane Silk is less viscous than Restylane, providing you with a more subtle result. However, some patients who desire more fullness in their lips can still benefit from a traditional Restylane lip filler treatment.
Where Will My Restylane Silk Treatment Be Performed?
Your treatment will be performed in the privacy and comfort of our Ultra Smooth Skin offices. Our friendly, professional staff will be with you every step of the way to ensure the most relaxing, rejuvenating experience possible.
What Pain Relief Options Are Available During a Restylane Silk Treatment?
Typically, patients are advised to not take over-the-counter painkillers beforehand to minimize bruising, but if you are concerned about pain, let us know during your consultation so that we can work together to create a painless experience. During the procedure, you may receive a topical numbing treatment, and the Restylane Silk injection also contains an additional dose of lidocaine, so you should experience little to no discomfort. Ice is also available to minimize discomfort and swelling during treatment.
What Are the Potential Side Effects of Restylane Silk?
The most common side effects are mild swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness or swelling around the injection site. Generally, these side effects resolve themselves after a few days.
How Much Does Restylane Silk Cost?
The cost depends on your location and provider. At Ultra Smooth Skin, a single syringe of Restylane Silk will cost less when you enroll in the Aspire rewards program. Feel free to ask about becoming a member of the Aspire program when you call or visit our office, and be sure to ask us about specials we're running each month.
