Many people are unhappy with the shape and size of their lips. For some people, this is something that happened as they got older. For others, they have never been satisfied with the look of their mouth. In either case, Restylane® filler is a great option to get the lips you have always wanted. Let’s answer some of the most common questions people have about this treatment option.
How Does Restylane® Work?
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid-based filler. It is designed to mimic the hyaluronic acid that is produced by your body naturally. When strategically injected into the lips, Restylane® can add subtle yet noticeable volume. The injections contain lidocaine, which helps you stay comfortable during the procedure. After the injections, you should notice an immediate boost. Over time, the hyaluronic acid will continue to attract more water to the area, making your results more dramatic and long-lasting. Silk is a member of the Restylane® family that is specifically designed for lips. It has very fine hyaluronic acid molecule that are perfect for adding subtle volume that will not leave your lips looking overdone.
How Long Do the Results Last with Restylane®?
Exactly how long your improvements will last depends on a few factors. How your body interacts with the hyaluronic acid and how much you move your lips are two of the biggest. On average, you can expect your results to last for up to six months.
One of the best things about this treatment is how natural your results look. You will still be able to move your lips naturally with no stiffness. There are no lumps to worry about, either. All you are left with after Restylane® is pillow-soft, luscious lips.
Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane®?
This treatment is approved by the FDA for use in individuals aged 21 and older. Typically speaking, it is a good idea to be in good overall health. It is also helpful to be a non-smoker because smoking can slow down your body’s natural ability to heal. You should have realistic expectations about what this treatment can and cannot do for you. If you are someone seeking a non-surgical way to immediately improve the appearance of your lips, you may be the ideal candidate for Restylane®.
