Full, proportionate lips are like the bow on a present: they bring your other features into harmony. Unfortunately, not everyone is naturally graced with a perfect pucker—and complicated makeup routines or uncomfortable lip plumping products are often impractical and ineffective. Whether your lips have been naturally thin all of your life, or you’ve noticed volume loss as you’ve aged, Restylane® Silk may be a perfect option for you. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David B. Brothers, Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta offers Restylane® Silk for men and women in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Chamblee, Woodstock, Peachtree City, and Lawrenceville.
What is Restylane® Silk?
A newer addition to the Restylane® family of products, Restylane® Silk is an injectable solution comprised of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in your skin to provide moisture, fullness, and elasticity. It is specially formulated to provide your lips with definition and volume that cannot be achieved with cosmetics or over-the-counter lip plumping products.
When expertly injected into the lips, Restylane Silk provides subtle and natural-looking lip enhancement that lasts. Because lips can be sensitive to synthetic products, hyaluronic acid is an ideal and natural option for providing volume and shape safely.
Benefits of Restylane® Silk
Restylane® Silk is recommended for men and women who want to enhance their lips without surgery or implants. The injections are precisely controlled to maintain a natural appearance, and you will have no downtime.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Restylane® Silk?
Because Restylane® Silk is formulated with natural hyaluronic acid, it can provide safe and beautiful results for many. While it’s important to speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon or licensed aesthetician to determine if Restylane® Silk is a good option for you, ask yourself the following questions to see if you may be a candidate:
- Are my lips out of proportion with my other facial features?
- Would fuller lips help balance my face?
- Are my lips asymmetrical?
- Are the edges of my lips ill-defined?
- Do I have vertical lines or deep nasolabial folds around my lips?
- Am I tired of trying ineffective products for improving the fullness or shape of my lips?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, lip enhancement may be a good fit for you.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Restylane® Silk?
Lip enhancement with Restylane® Silk is an incredibly easy way to create the full lips that you have always wanted. The results of the treatment are largely dependent on the experience of the clinician who performs the procedure. We recommend that you entrust your Restylane® Silk treatments to the experienced clinicians at our practice.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Restylane® Silk?
After listening to your concerns and goals, we will evaluate your natural lip shape and “map out” the ideal placement of product to provide natural-looking results that subtly enhance your lips. Restylane® Silk will then be expertly and precisely injected using a very fine needle, slowly increasing fullness and enhancing lip edge definition.
How Long Does It Take to Administer Restylane® Silk?
Lip enhancement with Restylane® Silk takes less than one hour.
What to Expect After Restylane® Silk
After your treatment, you can resume most normal activity right away. You may experience some swelling, redness, tenderness, or bruising on the lips and around the injection sites, though side effects are often mild and resolve quickly. We recommend using cold compresses to help with swelling and comfort.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is an injectable product that produces absolutely no scars.
When Will I See Results?
You will see improvement right away, with final results appearing over the course of about a week as swelling dissipates.
How Long Will the Results of Restylane® Silk Last?
Restylane® Silk safely and effectively enhances the size and shape of your lips and minimizes signs of aging around the lips for up to six months.
Additional Procedures to Enhance Your Restylane® Silk Results
We encourage you to couple your Restylane® Silk treatment with another dermal filler and injectable to give your entire face a younger, healthier appearance. You may also want to consider our dermaplane treatment or a relaxing facial.
