Restylane Silk in Los Angeles, CA
In addition to developing wrinkles around the eyes and forehead as we age, the lips also start to look thinner and less prominent with vertical lines appearing around them. Board-certified plastic surgeon Jaime S. Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S., of Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute MedSpa, uses Restylane® Silk to diminish the signs of aging around the mouth and to create a naturally looking smile for residents of Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and the surrounding California cities.
What is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is specifically developed to diminish fine lines around the mouth and to plump and smooth the lips. As the only injectable gel that is FDA approved specifically for the lips, Restylane® Silk contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance naturally found in the body that helps the skin keep its moisture. It also contains lidocaine to ensure there is no discomfort during the injection. As with any injectable, the results are temporary but offer a subtle and natural change to your appearance.
Benefits of Restylane® Silk
Restylane® Silk is the only FDA-approved injectable filler specifically designed to be injected into the lips and around the mouth to diminish fine lines and to make the lips fuller. As a very popular injectable filler, Restylane® Silk offers the following benefits:
- No allergy testing necessary because it has no animal byproducts
- Contours and reshapes the lips to look fuller and smoother
- No downtime or recovery
- Results last six months to a year
- No pain with injections – formula contains lidocaine to numb the injection area
Is Restylane® Silk Right for Me?
Restylane® Silk is ideal for those who want to plump and contour their lips and diminish the vertical lines around the mouth, creating a younger and natural appearance. If you notice that your lips are thinner, and the vertical lines around them are more noticeable, Restylane® Silk may just be the answer.
How is Restylane® Silk Administered?
Dr. Schwartz or a trained MedSpa clinician injects Restylane® Silk directly into the targeted area. Once injected, it immediately plumps the lips and fills in the areas with excessive wrinkles and lines, creating a naturally younger appearance. The treatments take only a few minutes and last for up to 12 months. Over the next few weeks, the improvements become more visible.
Restylane® Silk Recovery
There is no recovery period with Restylane® Silk. Most patients return to their normal activities immediately following treatment. Any mild discomfort or swelling disappears within a few hours.
