As we age, our lips show telltale signs of aging, such as wrinkles and thinning. Fortunately, there are several effective fillers that can be used to enhance lips and smooth wrinkles around the mouth.
RestylaneSilk is the only FDA-approved product specifically designed for this purpose. It is designed to create silkier, softer, natural-looking lips and to smooth out hard-to-treat wrinkles around the mouth, often referred to as smoker's lines.
The results of Restylane Silk are evident immediately after the filler injection and usually last on the lips for 9 to 12 months or more. Most patients begin to see that the volume of the hyaluronic acid filler gradually dissipates at 9 months, so many opt for a biannual “touch-up” treatment to maintain the desired results. For most patients, optimal results are visible after about 14 days. Side effects are usually minimal and mild, but may include some redness or swelling at or near the injection site.
Most patients see any initial swelling or redness disappear during the first few days after treatment, and in rare cases, additional swelling lasts longer than 14 days. In some cases, patients may see bruises, which poses a risk for any injectable treatment. Green recommends avoiding blood thinners, aspirin or ibuprofen before treatment, as they may increase the risk of bruising after treatment.The amount of Restylane for lips varies widely depending on the current state of the lips, as well as the aesthetic needs and goals of each patient. However, for most patients, 1-2 vials of Restylane will be enough for lip augmentation, as well as to reduce the appearance of aging on the lips.Restylane Kysse is a lip filler that adds volume, smoothes upper lip lines for up to a year and improves lip color.
