Your lips are an important part of your features for many reasons, so if you’re not happy with how they look, that may affect how you feel about your entire face. If you want to add volume to your lips, correct imperfections, or smooth lip lines around the mouth, now you can, and all it takes is one quick appointment. At Steele Creek Dermatology in Charlotte, NC, we offer Restylane Silk, a dermal filler designed to enhance and improve the lips in unique ways.
What Are the Uses of Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is a dermal filler specifically formulated to treat the lips and the area around the mouth. It can correct imperfections, target the signs of aging, and add fullness to one or both of the lips.
Treating Thin Lips
Some people are born with thin lips; others want to augment their lips to achieve a more aesthetic appearance. Whatever the case, Restylane Silk can add natural-looking volume to one or both of the lips to improve your appearance. As you age, your lips can lose volume due to collagen and elastin loss, as well as a natural decrease in your body’s hyaluronic acid production. This filler can address aging lips by restoring natural-looking volume to your lips.
It can also treat patients born with thin lips due to genetics and add natural volume to the area. Whatever the reason you want to augment your lips, this dermal filler is specifically designed to do so in a completely natural-looking way.
Vertical Lip Lines
As you age, fine vertical lines can begin to appear around the mouth that are very difficult to treat and improve with skincare treatments or topical products. These lines go by many different names, including lipstick lines, vertical lips lines, or perioral lines. Injections in strategic areas around the mouth can help smooth these lines by adding instant volume below the skin’s surface.
Some people have lip imperfections that make them feel self-conscious about the appearance of their mouth and their face. This dermal filler can address different lip imperfections, including an undefined cupids bow and side-to-side symmetry issues.
It can also improve lip projection, which is how your lips appear from a side profile perspective. It can also help add fullness to different areas of the lips to create the most aesthetically pleasing and proportionate-looking lips.
How Does It Work?
All of the Restylane fillers are made of a crystal clear gel formulation that contains a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid. Your body makes hyaluronic acid to help keep your skin smooth and supple, but it produces less and volume loss results as you age. This dermal filler helps replicate your body’s natural hyaluronic acid.
The gel formulation is administered below the skin’s surface to plump and lift the treatment area during the injection process. To begin, an injector will clean the treatment site and then administer the necessary amount of filler to help you reach your aesthetic goals. You’ll see an instant plumping effect that will continue to improve as during the week following treatment.
The Restylane Silk Advantage
The benefit of this particular filler one compared to other similar types of lip fillers is that it is specifically designed to treat the lips. Compared to the rest of the face, the area around the mouth is small and delicate. Therefore, it requires a specific filler formulation with small-sized particles to help create the most natural appearance.
Restylane Silk is formulated with a small, smooth particle-sized hyaluronic acid-based formula that will help you combat aging and reach your aesthetic goals in a completely natural-looking and subtle way. This filler is formulated differently from other Restylane fillers, so you can rest assured that you won’t be disappointed when you choose this filler to treat your lips.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Once injected with this filler, you can expect an immediate improvement in your vertical lip lines and instant volume in your lips. Your results will continue to improve throughout the week following treatment.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Clinical studies have shown that over half of patients treated with this filler still experienced results six months after their treatment. Results may vary among patients, and we can give you a better idea of how long your results will expect once you schedule your initial consultation.
Who Is It Right For?
This dermal filler is a good option for adults over 21 who want to add fullness to the lips, smooth vertical lips lines, or correct imperfections on the upper or lower lips, or both. An initial consultation with one of our injectors will help determine if Restylane Silk is right for you. We will evaluate your problem areas, discuss your medical history, and ensure that this filler is a safe and effective option that will help you reach all of your aesthetic goals.
