Improving imperfections of the lips.
Our lips are in constant motion and the physical structure of the lip weakens over time. This can lead to fine lines on the lips, as well as volume loss. Most patients at Kestin MD, who are dissatisfied with their lips, lack plumpness in their lips and fine lines have formed around the mouth. At our New York City office, we offer Restylane Silk, a softer form of Restylane, FDA approved to improve imperfections of the lips and the fine lines around them.
What is Restylane® Silk?
Similar to the other members of the Restylane family, Restylane Silk is a clear formula of hyaluronic acid, a naturally present sugar in your skin. Restylane Silk is specifically made to provide improvement in the delicate area of the lips with smoother, smaller particles. Once injected, Restylane Silk provides instant volume and fine line correction that patients see right after treatment.
With its specially made formula and an ultrafine needle for injection, Restylane Silk provides accurate and precise results for a natural enhancement of your smile. Dr. Kestin understands that the lips are one of the most prominent features of your face and strives to provide only natural results that are true to you that don’t look overdone. During treatment, Dr. Kestin will inject Restylane Silk meticulously in target areas that were determined in your initial consultation. Some results are noticeable immediately following treatment, but the final results are seen about two weeks post-treatment. Most patients also report lip improvement up to six months after their session. Touch-up or follow-up treatments may be recommended or necessary to maintain these results for long-term effects.
As with other hyaluronic acid injections, the most common side effect is temporary swelling and bruising at the injection site. Dr. Kestin will inform you of all the risks associated with Restylane Silk during your initial consultation. However, since it is a non-surgical treatment, risk level is very low. If you desire plumper and more defined lips, Restylane Silk treatment can be your solution. Contact our office today to schedule your Restylane Silk appointment with Dr. Kestin!
