Are your lips kissably plump? As the body ages the lips get thinner and lose volume. Dermal fillers are an excellent option for restoring that volume and getting the plump back in your pout. While many dermal fillers can be used on and around the lips, one filler is specifically designed just for this purpose: Restylane Silk. Let’s have a look at a few of the reasons this filler is perfect for the lips. Pucker up!
Why Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar naturally produced by the body. It is very biocompatible (no allergy testing needed) and it is naturally broken down by the body over time. Restylane Silk features a smaller particle size than its sister filler Restylane allowing for smoother applications in the delicate lip area.
You’ll see instant results that will last for months. One study found that 77% of those receiving treatment received at least a one-point improvement (on a 5 point scale) in lip fullness after treatment. More than half of those treated maintained lip fullness for at least 6 months. Almost everyone (98%) reported visible improvement in lip fullness 14 days following treatment.
Restylane Silk uses an ultra-fine needle for application. This allows us to carefully place small amounts of filler for precise and beautiful results.
What’s Recovery Like?
Restylane Silk requires no downtime. Come in for treatment (the injections only take around 30 minutes) and head right back to life. You may have a bit of redness or swelling, but this is easily covered with makeup and usually fades quickly.
Is Restylane Silk Right for Me?
We offer several different types of dermal fillers here at the Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center. Dr. Amerian and Dr. Anterasian will work with you to determine which dermal filler (or combination of fillers) will provide you with your best results. If you’re looking to remove lip lines or increase lip fullness, Restylane Silk is often a great choice. If we believe a different filler may be better for you, we’ll offer recommendations as well.
