On January 29, 2015, pharmaceutical company Galderma announced the launch of Restylane® Silk, the first and only filler approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lip enhancement and the treatment of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in people over the age of 21.
In a clinical study of Restylane Silk involving 221 patients:
- 98% of patients treated with Restylane® Silk reported a visible improvement in the fullness of their lips 14 days after injection
- 76% reported that they still had lip improvement at six months following injection
Restylane Silk is now available at Lucy Peters Aesthetic Center.
