As a result of age and the loss of collagen that comes with it, the connective tissue in our face becomes less taut and more susceptible to stretching, causing the skin to lose volume. This can lead to the lips to becoming thinner, less defined, and more prone to the appearance of vertical lines. Surgical enhancement exists as a solution for these concerns but many men and women turn away from it because of the discomfort and lengthy recovery time.
Spa Noor Medical Spa and Laser Center—Located in Fall River, Massachusetts— proudly provides a solution for these individuals with Restylane® Silk, a dermal filler that can non-surgically rejuvenate the skin and restore plushness and contour back to a patient’s lips with ease and convenience. If you share the same cosmetic concern as these patients, contact our office in Fall River, ask about Restylane® Silk, and find out if it could be the non-surgical solution that you’ve been looking for.
What is Restylane® Silk?
Made out of a solution of Hyaluronic Acid, Restylane® Silk is a dermal filler that is delivered through injection. It may take one to two injections to be properly administered to the body, depending on the individual. The duration of the procedure depends on the amount of areas that the patient wants to treat but in most cases it will typically take less than hour to be completed.
A numbing agent may be used before the injection but it is not required. After the procedure, a patient can expect to return to work or their home as the treatment typically requires no downtime. Side effects usually include minor swelling and tenderness of the skin but this can typically be treated with an ice pack. Applying makeup and performing strenuous exercise should be avoided for 24 hours following the treatment.
Why Should I Choose Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk uses smaller particles of Hyaluronic Acid than the typical dermal filler. The lower concentration of Hyaluronic Acid is intentioned to help the filler produce a look of the lips that is natural and full, not exaggeratedly plump. Using less Hyaluronic Acid also means that the excess solution left after the procedure is quickly absorbed by the body.
Restylane® Silk being non-surgical and typically requiring little to no downtime doesn’t mean that it can’t deliver serious results. Clinical studies have shown the effects of Restylane® Silk to be visible in full after just two weeks, with the results having the potential to last up to an entire year.
How Do I Know if Restylane® Silk is Right For Me?
