Restylane Silk: The Perfect Option for Lip Rejuvenation

With age, many patients notice the formation of very fine lines across their face, including above one’s lips. These wrinkles appear as the skin loses moistures, elastin, and collagen. With repetitive lifestyle habits and smoking, the chance of these fine age lines appearing and becoming pronounced increases. Smoker’s lines above the lips need not arise from smoking – genetics and age can also contribute to the condition.

Injectable fillers have been used in the past also to reduce the prominence of age lines in various regions of the face, including marionette lines, horizontal forehead lines, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and the nasolabial folds.

A new filler is now available that focuses specifically on the lips. Restylane Silk is available to improve their fullness and appearance and to treat fine lines above the lips. Use of Restylane Silk for lip augmentation and removal of fine lines has been approved and endorsed by the FDA.

How Does Restylane Silk Work?

Restylane Silk is one of the safest fillers that can be injected to deal with fine age lines in different skin types, including delicate skin. It has a soft consistency and contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound in the body.

Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule, and its depletion causes the body’s tissues to lose collagen as a faster rate. Because of this, the skin loses smoothness, leading to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Because Restylane Silk is composed of micro-molecules, it can replenish the hyaluronic acid in the skin, leading to generation of collagen.

Restylane Silk also contains 0.3% lidocaine, which acts as an anesthetic compound, reducing pain and discomfort when the filler is injected. However, some patients may be allergic to lidocaine, so an allergy test may be performed by the licensed healthcare provider before the injections are administered to the skin.

Advantages of Restylane Silk

The biggest benefit is that the Restylane Silk treatment procedure is completely safe. During the procedure, you may not need numbing shots or topical anesthesia to reduce discomfort, since lidocaine is highly effective. There is almost no downtime, and a session shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes. That means you will be back to your work desk before anyone notices.

Due to smaller particle size of the Restylane Silk filler, it can be delivered with a high degree of accuracy. That leads to better contouring of the skin and reduces chances of lumps and bumps. Since it is minimally invasive, there are usually no lesions or bruises.

Restylane Silk is an affordable solution to loss of lip volume, formation of vertical smoker’s lines, and more. Along with the potency of the filler, the experience and skill of the caregiver is extremely important. The precise angle at which the filler has to be injected, the place where it has to be injected, and the anesthetic required are decisions that a skilled and experienced doctor can make accurately.
