Patients in the Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida Area are discovering an effective and safe cosmetic treatment for fuller, plumper lips! Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon in Aventura, FL provides Restylane® Silk injection to restore fullness to lips and reduce wrinkles and lines around the mouth.
What Is Restylane® Silk?
Silk is the first and only FDA-approved cosmetic treatment on the market specifically formulated to enhance volume and fullness in the lips, while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sometimes referred to as smoker’s lines or perioral rhytids, around the mouth.
Benefits of Restylane® Silk
Silk is made of fine particles that are smaller and smoother than the ones found in other Restylane®
products, making it the ideal treatment for subtle enhancement of lip volume while simultaneously reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the lips. One of the areas where signs of age tend to be most obvious is on the lips, with lips becoming thin and less shapely as we age, and fine lines around the mouth that detract from your otherwise youthful appearance. Restylane®
Silk is an exclusive gel formula that produces a softer, younger appearance that looks and feels completely natural. Restylane®
is normally used to treat the following conditions:
- Vertical creases and lines along the edge of the upper lip also called “smoker’s lines”
- Lips that have thinned down with age
Who Is a Good Candidate for Restylane® Silk?
Anyone who desires fuller, shapelier, natural-looking lips and a more youthful appearance by reducing the fine lines above the lips may be an ideal candidate for Restylane®
How Should I Prepare For Restylane® Silk?
Silk is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that has been proven safe and effective when administered by an experienced, qualified medical practitioner such as Dr. Rubinstein. Although Restylane®
Silk is formulated from natural ingredients, and allergic reactions to it are extremely rare, is nonetheless important that you discuss any history of allergies and other medical conditions with Dr. Rubinstein prior to treatment. You should also inform Dr. Rubinstein if you have received any other injections recently and if you are taking any medications. Dr. Rubinstein may recommend that you avoid non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen and aspirin, certain supplements such as St. John’s Wort, and Vitamin E one week prior to treatment with Restylane®
How Is Restylane® Silk Administered?
Silk gel formula is administered via direct injection into the lips following the use of a topical numbing agent to reduce any discomfort during the procedure. Dr. Rubinstein uses a very fine, small gauge needle. You will notice immediate results following the treatment, but you will continue to see increased improvements over time as lines and creases around the lips disappear gradually thanks to the increased hydration in the area. In most cases, one treatment takes 20 to 30 minutes and lasts approximately 10 to 12 months.
