Restylane Ft. Worth
Restylane Silk Lip Enhancement & Restylane Filler
Our lips are no more immune to the aging process than any other area of the face. If you’ve noticed your lips have lost plumpness or show vertical lines, no amount of volumizing lip gloss is going to restore what you have lost.
The good news is we have Restylane® Silk. One of the newest arrivals on our menu of injectables, Restylane Silk is made just for the lips, to help smooth out lines, enhance volume, or even improve lip proportions, helping you feel more confident in your smile.
Its sister product, Restylane, has become a popular patient choice for smoothing wrinkles around the nose and mouth, and we are happy to offer both Restylane products as part of our skincare services here at Kirby Plastic Surgery.
Smoother, Fuller Lips with Minimal Effort
Restylane Silk is specifically formulated to add volume to the lips, helping to smooth out fine lip lines that often appear as we age. While plastic surgeons have used alternative injectables for the lips in the past, Restylane Silk uses much tinier particles of hyaluronic acid, which allow it to readily fill in even very thin lip lines, helping to achieve remarkably natural results. Other facts about Restylane Silk:
- Final results are apparent within 1-2 weeks
- Lips look and feel completely natural after treatment
- Volumizing & wrinkle-reducing effects last up to 6 months
Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is the first filler FDA approved for lip enhancement as well as to smooth out thin wrinkles across the lips. The best candidates are over 21 and want to improve their lip contour. If you answer “yes” to any of the following, you might find Restylane Silk to be a good option for you:
- I want to get rid of thin vertical lip lines
- I want fuller, more luscious lips (but not too big!)
- I have noticed my lips losing volume as I age
- I feel that my lips are too small in proportion to the rest of my face
What to Expect During Restylane Silk Treatment
As is the case with most injectable filler treatments, Restylane Silk involves a quick and relatively comfortable treatment. At your appointment, Dr. Kirby will inject a precise amount of Restylane Silk just into key points around the lip, using a tiny needle.
Treatment takes less than 30 minutes. Following your appointment, you can return to normal activity. Common side effects are mild and include slight bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection site. These typically go away over the course of 1-2 weeks.
Restylane vs. Restylane Silk
Restylane® includes a family of filler products, each designed to treat certain types of facial aging. Restylane is a hyaluronic acid gel that is particularly good for filling in moderate lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, such as laugh lines or marionette lines. With a slightly different consistency from Restylane Silk, original Restylane is formulated to look and feel natural beneath the skin around the nasolabial folds, with effects lasting 6 to 12 months. To meet our patients’ unique needs, we offer both Restylane and Restylane Silk.
