As we age, our skin can make us look older than we feel; this can be just as true regarding the lips. They can get thinner, lose their shape, and even begin to show fine lines and wrinkles. In the past, surgical procedures were the only solution. With the development of Restylane, a uniquely crafted dermal filler, we can help restore your lips to a more youthful appearance. It is also a great treatment for those who have always craved a little extra plump in their smile.
How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid–based filler; hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that bonds other moisture molecules together. This amazing formula immediately plumps the skin while the additional hyaluronic acid attracts more water to your lips, granting long-lasting results.
This is a simple, quick treatment that is done right in our office. An ultra-fine needle is used to strategically inject the filler, and creating a youthful appeal. This procedure is done using local anesthesia, ensuring you remain comfortable the entire time.
Your results will continue to develop after your appointment. You can expect to see your full results in roughly one week.It’s important to keep in mind that Restylane does not grant permanent results, but you can expect your lips to remain fuller and younger looking for anywhere from 6 to 18 months. With an optimal treatment plan, we can help you maintain these results year ‘round.
What Can Restylane Do for Your Smile?
There are many improvement that can be achieved through a Restylane treatment, some of them being:
