Restylane Silk Gives You Enviable Lips

Plastic surgery is changing everyone’s lives. There was a time when people had to make do with the way they looked and the proportions of their body, but not anymore. Numerous forms of enhancement and rejuvenation are now available for one to pick and choose from. They are all medically approved and have changed so many people’s lives for the better.

Most importantly, after a certain age, people could not keep a tab on what was happening to their skin. The signs of the aging process would always appear and could not be treated effectively. Now, cosmetic procedures have changed that. You can easily address the signs of aging, rejuvenating your appearance.

Age and the Lips

With age, the skin above the lips begins to develop vertical lines and wrinkles. The lips can also lose their definition and volume. Most people opt for removal of wrinkles and age lines but forget that it is possible to restore volume and shape to the lips.

Restylane Silk is an injectable gel filler that is designed specifically to provide the lips with natural-looking rejuvenation. This procedure makes your lips appear fuller and better defined while smoothing out the creases and folds around them.

Restylane Silk is FDA approved and absolutely safe to use. It consists of small, smooth hyaluronic acid particles and includes a local anesthetic called Lidocaine, which ensures that you will not need any other local or general anesthetic during the procedure.

The Procedure

Restylane Silk is injected using a very fine needle. It is administered to the lips and the area around the mouth. Topical numbing agents maybe be applied to the area to avoid discomfort. The number of injections required will vary from person to person. After the procedure, your recovery is almost instant. However, you must not touch your lips for about six hours. There might be some swelling, redness, or tenderness, but these are temporary.

The Benefits

Restylane Silk can be used to treat vertical lip lines, which are also called smoker’s lines. The procedure results in smooth and silky lips that have regained shape and look fuller. It is great for wrinkled lips that have lost shape with age.

The treatment is quick, and recovery time is immediate, so you won’t have to worry about weeks of downtime. The procedure is non-surgical and only minimally invasive. The components in the gel are natural sugar chains that already exist in our body, so risk of allergic reaction is low. Because it also contains an anesthetic, the procedure is painless.

Many people don’t realize what kind of impact shapeless lips can have on their face, and this is a fantastic procedure to help correct this issue.
