Pretty Up Your Lips with a Restylane Silk Treatment

Pretty Up Your Lips with a Restylane Silk Treatment

Even if nature didn't give you plump lips, Dr. John Tate can using Restylane Silk. Tate MediSpa now offers this fantastic treatment and is already booking appointments. Keep reading to find out why Restylane Silk is the perfect solution when you want fuller lips and fewer lines and wrinkles around the mouth.

All About Fillers

Approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Restylane Silk is used to plump lips and fill wrinkles around the mouth in people over the age of 21. Restylane Silk is a second-generation version of Restylane. Both are what are known as "fillers." Hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in human collagen and skin, helps repair tissues and provides lubrication to joints and cells within the body. As people age, they produce less hyaluronic acid, which increases the tendency for skin to wrinkle. Fillers typically contain hyaluronic acid. Although other fillers are available for wrinkle repair, Restylane Silk is the only filler specifically approved for lip enhancement by the FDA.

Restylane or Restylane Silk — What's the Difference?

What makes Restylane Silk different from its sister filler Restylane is lidocaine. Restylane Silk contains hyaluronic acid as well as lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Both are injected into the tissue with a needle, and the lidocaine helps decrease the sting of the injection. Another difference is that Restylane Silk particles are smaller, so the doctor can use an ultra-fine needle. The combination of a tiny needle and the lidocaine minimizes discomfort for the patient.

Quick Treatment, Long-Lasting Results

Quick Treatment, Long-Lasting Results

A Restylane Silk treatment usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour, and can easily be accomplished on your lunch break. Almost all patients report positive results in lip fullness, which reaches maximum effect within about two weeks after the treatment. About three-fourths of patients still enjoy the same level of lip fullness six months after the treatment.

Safety Profile

Since Restylane Silk is not obtained from animals, it contains no proteins, so allergy testing is unnecessary. It is very safe and side effects or complications are unlikely. However, if you have a history of allergic reactions to anesthetics, it might not be a good choice for you. People who have bleeding disorders or a history of infections from gram-positive bacteria such as Streptococcus (which may be found on the skin) should not use Restylane Silk. Side effects are usually minor and include lip swelling, minor bruising or pain.
