Those pouty, kissable lips which are so popular are achievable in our office with a non-surgical procedure using Restylane® injectable gel, the first and only FDA-approved filler for lip enhancement. Additionally, Restylane® is effective in minimizing fine smile lines and deeper parentheses (nasolabial folds) that run from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth.
How does Restylane® work?
- Restylane® a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to instantly, visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles – and provide lovely, pouty, luscious lips. It’s easily accepted and unlikely to cause an adverse reaction; its proven safe and effective.
- The lip enhancement procedure is done using a nerve blocker anesthetic, similar to a dental anesthetic, which numbs the lips and ensures that you are relaxed and comfortable before the actual procedure begins. This gentle procedure takes about 15 minutes.
- Following the procedure, you can return to your normal activities and work schedule immediately. There can be some mild bruising that may last a few days but can be easily camouflaged.
- After six months, 74% of subjects treated with Restylane® described their lips as “improved,” “much improved,” or “very much improved.”
Are you a candidate for Restylane®?
- The ideal candidate for Restylane® lip enhancement is the patient who wishes to minimize the appearance of fine lines around their mouth, restore a more youthful appearance and enhance the appearance and fullness of their lips.
- It is important to clarify your expectations. If you decide a lip enhancement procedure is for you, discuss your “plumping” expectations with us. We strive to ensure that you achieve the look you want. An excellent rule of thumb is “less is more.” Maintaining the normal anatomy of the lips with subtle injections results in naturally appearing lips.
