Our lips show some of the biggest signs of aging. With age, we lose volume and elasticity in our lips. In addition, the skin around our lips begins to wrinkle, making us look older. Restylane® Silk can replace the volume in your lips as well as treat the fine lines around your mouth, giving your overall face a more youthful and natural look.
What is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is one of several hyaluronic acid cosmetic injections made by Restylane®. Plastic surgeons use dermal fillers like Restylane® Silk for lip augmentation and to treat other parts of the face for signs of aging. Specifically, Restylane® Silk has recently gained FDA approval and is one of few soft tissue fillers that are constructed with lidocaine to improve comfort during injection.
Lip Enhancement with Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler that is exclusively formulated to treat the loss of volume in the lips and fine lines and wrinkles in the lips and around the mouth in anyone over the age of 21. One of the leading differences between Restylane® Silk and other cosmetic injections is that it is formulated specifically for lip augmentation. The ingredients in Restylane® Silk draw moisture into your lips and disperse more evenly than previous fillers, which helps give your lips a naturally smoother, fuller, and more youthful appearance.
Reasons Lip Appearance is Key to a Youthful Face
Lip appearance contributes to the signs of aging because smaller, dry, and wrinkled lips are associated with age or damage to the skin and mouth that occurs with age. Restylane® Silk can rejuvenate your lips by making them look silkier and plumper like they were in your youth.
How Long Does Restylane® Silk Last?
Restylane® Silk is temporary, like all dermal fillers, and can last up to six months and longer. Temporary dermal fillers offer many benefits. For one, Restylane® slowly disappears, giving you plenty of time to seek touch-ups before you or anyone else notices. Secondly, your plastic surgeon can modify how they treat your lips and mouth according to how pleased you were with the previous results.
Is Restylane® Silk Safe?
Restylane® Silk is relatively safe when you select a board-certified plastic surgeon to administer your cosmetic injections. Furthermore, hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your body, making the synthetic version much safer than several other types of cosmetic injections.
