If you are looking for a way to make your lips appear fuller and plumper, you are not alone. Some people just never had the lip volume they wanted. Others have noticed the fullness of their lips decrease with age. In either case, Restylane® can help. It is a line of dermal fillers that has a great option specifically aimed at giving your lips great shape and definition.
What is Restylane®?
The Restylane® line of dermal fillers are all hyaluronic acid-based. Due to the fact that hyaluronic acid is found in the body naturally, it is easy for these fillers to bond once injected. When it comes to lips, Restylane® Silk is great for both lip augmentation and smoothing out lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
Once this filler is injected, it begins to help in two important ways. The water in the injection will give you immediate results, meaning you will walk out of the office with fuller lips. The hyaluronic acid also attracts more water to your lips, meaning your improvements will continue to develop and last for a long time.
What to Expect with Restylane® Lip Treatments
This treatment is done in the comfort of our office and takes under an hour to perform. How many injections you will require is something that can be determined at a personalized consultation. After your treatment, there is no recovery period – you can immediately resume your normal daily activities.
The Benefits of Restylane®
This is a very popular treatment choice for those seeking to improve the appearance of their lips. Some of the reasons for this include:
- It makes lips look smoother as well as fuller
- Wrinkles around the mouth can be treated as well
- Lip symmetry can be improved
- Results are more natural than with many other fillers
The Food and Drug Administration has approved this treatment for use in adults. It is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is, however, a great option for people looking to change the appearance of their mouth without having surgery or any downtime.
