Not everyone can have lips like Angelina Jolie, at least not naturally. But who says everything has to be natural? Restylane Silk is FDA approved for lip enhancement and Dr. Walden uses it to give her patients the plump, full, kissable lips they’ve always wanted.
Restylane Silk both fills out the lips and it also addresses the vertical wrinkles on the lips that come with age. It also fills other lines around the mouth.
What is Restylane Silk?
You’ve heard of Restylane, the hyaluronic acid filler used for treatment of wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. But in January of 2015 a new member was added to the Restylane family, Restylane Silk. Restylane Silk is a smooth gel designed to restore natural definition and symmetry to the lip and mouth area. Currently it is the only filler approved by the FDA for this area of the face.
What does Silk work on?
Dr. Walden uses Restylane Silk in two ways: to enhance the lips and to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on the lips and the surrounding areas. These wrinkles are sometimes called “barcode” lines, and Silk fills out and erases these vertical lines. It does this without adding artificial-looking volume or over-plumping the lips.
How does it work?
Restylane Silk is a clear, hyaluroic acid gel that has been formulated specifically for the lips and surrounding areas of the face. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. Its job is to plump and hydrate the skin. It does this by binding with water molecules. Because the skin around the mouth is delicate, Restylane Silk is formulated with smaller particles in a smooth texture. Its smoothness makes Silk very accurate when placed, an important fact for the lips.
What are the results Silk will give me?
Studies by the manufacture of Silk have results that show 98 percent of patients noticed significant improvement in the fullness of their lips and surrounding wrinkles 14 days after their injections. From there, results last around six months.
