Restylane Silk in San Diego
Laser Cliniqúe is proud to introduce Restylane Silk to its line of beauty enhancement offerings. Restylane Silk is the newest addition to the Restylane family of products, and has just been approved by the FDA. To date, Restylane Silk is the only product approved by the FDA for the specific purpose of lip enhancement and to resolve wrinkles around the lips. It is currently available for use in patients ages 21 and older.
Lips can age more quickly than other areas of the Face
The skin on and around the lips is very thin, making this area of the face more susceptible to early signs of aging than other facial areas. Common signs of aging around the lips include:
- Thinning of the lips
- A change in the shape of the lips
- Vertical lines (smoker’s lines) around the lips
- “Smile” lines in the corners of the lips
Several factors go into creating a pair of lips that are considered attractive. Perhaps most importantly, the left and right sides of the lips should be symmetrical for balance and appeal. The divot in the top lip, known as the cupid’s bow, should be well-defined and symmetrical, centered below the nose. Fullness in the body of the lips is also important in a youthful appearance and the fullness should taper off at the corners of the mouth. For the best results, the lower lip should be slightly fuller than the upper lip, protruding slightly more when viewed from the side. To avoid the appearance of overly large or small lips, a line drawn straight up from the corners of the mouth should hit the eye around mid-pupil. The versatile Restylane Silk treatment is ideal for subtly crafting lovely lips that will make you appear younger and more appealing.
Excellent Patient Satisfaction
The difference between Restylane Silk and other Restylane products is that it uses smaller, smoother particles of hyaluronic acid. By using smaller particles, the lips can be enhanced to create a totally natural appearance. You needn’t have any concerns about creating huge, oversized lips as you may have seen in people who had the older types of lip enhancement treatments!
Prior to being released to the public, a clinical study of Restylane Silk was done on test subjects. The satisfaction of the test subjects with Restylane Silk was impressive. Seventy-seven percent reported an improvement in lip fullness eight weeks after treatment. Fifty-nine percent of subjects maintained the initial lip fullness Restylane Silk gave them for six months after treatment. This is exciting news for those who want to get fuller, smoother, younger looking lips without the need for frequent injections.
Lip Enhancement With Complete Comfort
Another benefit of Restylane Silk is its high level of comfort compared to other dermal fillers that are injected into the lips. It is a very smooth liquid with little viscosity, so it flows easily into the lips and the area around them. This means less pressure is required to get it to move the product into your lip area. The gel itself has lidocaine in it, for patient comfort. It is one of the most comfortable methods of lip enhancement available, with a typical treatment lasting a mere 30 minutes. Results are apparent immediately after treatment.
As with any medical procedure, there is a possibility that you may experience some minor side effects following your treatment. Patients with certain allergies or existing skin or other medical conditions should consult with a physician before receiving this treatment. Only a qualified medical professional can discuss your eligibility for Restylane Silk injections.
