You’ve probably noticed a number of changes to your skin and body as time passes. The aging process can cause parts of our bodies to wrinkle, spread and sag. One area that you may not have considered earlier in your life is the lips and the skin surrounding the lips. With time, this delicate region can lose volume and develop fine lines and wrinkles. While these are small imperfections, they can have a big impact on your overall appearance, causing you to look older or giving your face a stern look.
A cosmetic procedure called Restylane® Silk can plump up your lips and the surrounding lines in a natural-looking way and bring back your youthful appearance. We encourage you to learn about how lip injections with Restylane® Silk work and what you can expect from the procedure.
About Restylane® Silk
Restylane® Silk is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler with a gel consistency that is injected beneath the skin to help add volume to fine lines and the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced in our bodies that contributes to the skin’s suppleness and elasticity. This substance slows down its production as we age.
Restylane® Silk can plump the fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, often called smokers’ lines, and enhance lip volume. Since the active ingredient is animal-based, there is no need for allergy testing prior to treatment.
What to Expect with Lip Injections
In clinical trials, the FDA found that 98 percent of participants experienced improved volume in the lines around the lips two weeks after treatment, with 76% reporting lasting results six months after their initial session. Each session lasts, on average, between 30 and 60 minutes. Restylane® Silk contains lidocaine, an anesthetic, in order to help ease discomfort during the injections.
The best candidates for lip injections via Restylane® Silk are people in good overall health with realistic expectations. Treatment with this injectable requires no downtime, so you can return to your regular daily routine immediately afterward.
