Information about Restylane® Silk Injectable Gel with 0.3% Lidocaine:
Restylane® Silk is a crystal clear injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. Restylane® Silk is non-animal based and free from animal protein. Allergy pretesting is not necessary. Restylane® Silk contains 0.3% lidocaine, which was added to reduce the discomfort associated with the treatment.
A clinical study was conducted with Restylane® Silk to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of injections to enhance lip fullness and to improve the wrinkles around the lips. The study included 221 mostly female subjects and evaluated subjects with light and dark skin. Subjects with very dark skin were not studied.
Ninety-eight percent (98%) of subjects reported improvement in their lip fullness 14 days after injection and 76% of the subjects still had lip improvement 6 months after their injection.
The majority of adverse events were mild in intensity and the most common symptoms were lip swelling, contusion, and lip pain. The incidence of adverse event decreased significantly after the second treatment.
Restylane Silk is contraindicated for patients with severe allergies manifested by a history of anaphylaxis or history or presence of multiple severe allergies; patients with a history of allergies to gram positive bacterial proteins; patients with bleeding disorders; for implantation in anatomical spaces other than the dermis or submucosal implantation for lip augmentation and should not be used in patients with previous hypersensitivity to local anesthetics of the amide type, such as lidocaine.
