Aging takes its toll on all areas of the face, and the lips are no exception. With age, the lips thin, lose shape and develop vertical lines around the mouth. Smoothing the lines around the lips and restoring shape and fullness are essential for maintaining a youthful appearance. Restylane Silk, a new hyaluronic acid filler, is specifically designed to address the signs of aging in the lips and around the mouth.
What is Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is a new hyaluronic acid filler made specifically for the lips and the lines around the mouth. It is comprised of ultra fine, smooth hyaluronic acid particles, ideally suited for the fine lines around the mouth and the delicate lip tissue. It is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control for long-lasting and natural-looking results.
How Does It Work?
Restylane Silk is an ultra-fine and smooth hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a protein-sugar molecule that occurs naturally in our skin. It enhances the hydration of our skin, maintaining moisture and helping skin appear plump, supple and firm. With age, the natural hyaluronic acid content in the skin decreases, contributing to the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Restylane Silk restores hyaluronic acid content in the skin while adding volume and fullness. Its ultra smooth consistency makes Restylane Silk ideal for natural-looking, youthful lips.
What To Expect?
Restylane Silk is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel. Dr. Suls or Caroline will go over all of the possible risks before your treatment. The lips and the surrounding skin are generally numbed for comfort prior to the treatment. After your skin is cleansed with alcohol, a very fine needle is used to inject small amounts of the Restylane Silk into the lips and fine lines around the mouth. Results are seen immediately after the procedure and generally last 6 to 9 months. The most common side effects are temporary swelling and bruising. To minimize the risk of bruising, avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, fish oil, and other non-prescription blood thinners prior to treatment.
