It’s certainly no secret that most adult women would prefer lips that resemble those of a magazine model. As teens, full lips may have been the norm for you, but as the years slipped by, they grew thinner and thinner. The loss of volume is due to a decreased amount of collagen in the soft tissues, the effects of ultraviolet radiation, and a weakening of the muscles in the lower part of the face. Or you may have always had naturally thin lips. Fortunately, there is a simple way to add volume to the lips and restore their natural swoop shape. Restylane® Silk is a specially formulated gel that results in an immediate plumping of the lip tissue. It’s specifically made for lip tissue, and the results can last for quite a while.
Candidates for Restylane® Silk
Thinning lips that look stretched and uneven plague many adults, and they want to fix this problem because it makes them look stern, annoyed, or just plain disinterested. If the problem is caused by a loss of moisture retention in the soft tissues beneath the lip skin, a dermal filler may be the right solution.
A Specially Formulated Gel
Restylane® is made in different ways depending on the treatment area. Restylane® Silk is thinner than other forms of this brand, and this makes it perfect for adding volume and reshaping smaller areas. Other acid fillers are thicker and are intended for use on other areas of the face. If a thick gel is used to treat a small area, the resulting bumpiness is noticeable. Restylane® Silk won’t cause this problem.
What It Does
This gel contains hyaluronic acid. Most adults over a certain age don’t produce much of this acid, so a concentrated gel containing it is the best way to attract and hold moisture. After we consult with the client, we decide if Restylane® Silk is the best treatment option. If we determine that this gel can add the desired amount of volume to the lips, we will plan for a treatment session.
The gel may be injected into the soft tissues beneath the lip skin and at strategic points around the lip perimeter. The full effect of plumping takes days to manifest. The most noticeable result is a heightening of the lips and a restoring of the natural curve of the upper lip. The procedure is safe and can be repeated whenever necessary.
