Thinning lips are caused by changes in the lower facial muscles, stretching of the skin above and below the lips, and a loss of moisture retention in the lip tissue. This often occurs with age, and it lends a rather stern appearance to the individual. Lip injections, especially those containing hyaluronic acid, are effective at plumping the lips and restoring their natural swoop shape.
Restylane® is one of the most popular of these dermal fillers, but the standard form is actually better for adding volume in other areas of the face. Restylane Silk® is formulated differently, and it was created specifically for reshaping the lip tissue and restoring the natural curves of the lip boundaries. If you’re seeking a more youthful, plumper pout, Restylane Silk® may be just what you’re looking for.
How Hyaluronic Acid Works
This acid is a type of polysaccharide and is produced naturally in the body. Most mature adults don’t have much of it in their system, however. The acid binds with water molecules and holds them in place, especially within the subcutaneous tissues. When injected in a concentrated form, hyaluronic acid attracts water, and the water molecules, in turn, stick to other water molecules. The result is better moisture retention in the treated area.
About Restylane Silk® Lip Injections
This form of Restylane® contains much smaller acid particles than other injectable gels used to add volume to other parts of the face. This makes it especially suitable for lip augmentation. Since the gel itself is also a bit thinner than the usual acid filler, it becomes quite easy for the practitioner to control the amount of plumping in sensitive tissues such as the lips. This allows for complete customization of the augmentation procedure. Other dermal fillers can actually cause bumping and severe swelling due to moisture levels exceeding what would otherwise enhance the lip shape in a positive way. With Restylane Silk® lip injections, this is virtually impossible.
It’s important to remember that not all individuals enjoy exactly the same results. Differences in the basic lip shape, the horizontal attitude of the lips, and the thickness of the skin above and below the lips will affect the outcome. That’s why it’s important to consult with us about lip injections so that we can give the client realistic outcome expectations.
