Restylane® Silk in Chicago and Arlington Heights, IL 

Restylane Silk, Dr. John Kotis, Arlington, Chicago, IL

Dr. John A. Kotis is a board-certified plastic surgeon with offices in Chicago and Arlington Heights, IL offering personalized treatment options for patients desiring smoother, younger looking skin. Restylane® is one of many treatment options used to produce great, long-lasting results with minimal recovery time.

How Does Restylane® Silk Work?

Restylane® Silk is the only dermal filler FDA approved for lip enhancement. The specially designed formula for Restylane® Silk creates a clear gel with very fine particles smaller than the regular Restylane® and Perlane®, making it an ideal treatment option for reducing fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and increasing lip volume. The unique formula of Restylane® Silk is allergen free and can achieve optimal results when treating:

  • Smoker’s lines on the upper lip
  • Thinning, less voluminous lips
  • Fine lines around the mouth

Candidates for Treatment

Restylane® offers a safe, temporary alternative to lip implants. Anyone who wants a younger-looking face and fuller, natural looking lips may be a good candidate for Restylane® Silk. As the only dermal filler and injectable option FDA approved for safe and effective use in lip augmentations, Dr. Kotis recommends Restylane® Silk for patients over 21 who desire fuller lips that feel soft and natural.

The Procedure

Restylane® Silk treatments begin with an initial consultation with Dr. Kotis to discuss your goals. Once selected, Dr. Kotis will apply a numbing agent to your lips to reduce discomfort prior to the treatment.

Restylane® Silk is applied using a very small needle, much smaller than those used in vaccinations, to treat target areas in or around your lips. The entire treatment generally lasts under 30 minutes, but may vary from patient to patient. As with all facial fillers, some swelling may occur. You will be provided with an ice pack after the treatment process is over to help with healing. Tenderness and slight bruising may also occur and should subside within a week of treatment.


Restylane® Silk leaves you with naturally looking plump and voluminous lips that last about six months. Dr. Kotis recommends follow-up treatments every four to six months to maintain the optimal results that Restylane® Silk can provide.
