Restylane® Silk

As with the rest of the face, the lips can also succumb to the effects of aging, leaving you with a smile that looks thin and worn. Dr. Karlsberg offers Restylane® Silk — the only FDA-approved filler for enhancing the lips and smoothing fine lines around the mouth. When it comes to aging, cosmetic changes can impact different areas of the face depending on the patient. At Ventura Institute of Dermatologic Arts, we understand that every patient experiences aging differently, and we provide a number of procedures that combat the effects of aging, each focusing on the various areas of the face. The lips are no different, and we want you to wear the smile you have always wanted. If your lips are growing thin or you are looking to eliminate wrinkles around your mouth, then ask us about what Restylane® Silk can do for you.

The Power of Restylane® Silk

The lips are an important asset to the face, either complimenting or detracting from your facial contour. If your lips are lacking the fullness you desire, then increasing their volume with a dermal filler may be able to improve your appearance and help you look younger. Restylane® Silk provides natural lip augmentation by using hyaluronic acid, a moisturizing carbohydrate already present in our bodies. The acid provides a natural lift in the area where it is injected and restores volume in the face to help features look more youthful.

Restylane® Silk is the perfect solution for patients wanting to enhance their facial aesthetic, but who wish to do so without the invasive and dramatic nature of surgery. Dermal fillers, like Restylane® Silk, are minimally invasive and provide subtle improvements that do not look as though you have had work done. Additionally, Restylane® Silk uses smaller particles to increase volume to the lips, which ensures that results remain proportional and gives the injector more control over the final lip shape.

Designing Your Ideal Lips

The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® Silk acts as a moisturizer that allows the lips to look more plump when injected. Because hyaluronic acid is comprised of the same natural sugars in our own bodies, results look fuller without looking “plastic.” Restylane® Silk is especially formulated for the soft skin of the lips and will not produce lips that are too firm. It is the ideal way to achieve the cosmetic results that you want in a nonsurgical manner.

Anyone who is affected by the fine lines surrounding their mouths or the loss of volume to their lips is a good candidate for Restylane® Silk. Additionally, those who have asymmetrical lips or simply wish to improve upon their natural lip contour are suitable candidates. Receiving injectable treatment with Restylane® Silk is as easy as scheduling a consultation with Dr. Karlsberg or his Physician’s Assistant, Michele, who can discuss your cosmetic goals and determine whether dermal filler treatment is right for you. Afterwards, we can design a customized treatment plan that enhances your lips and fully compliments your facial structure. Our goal is to provide visible improvements while also creating balance between the aesthetic of your lips and your face.

Both Dr. Karlsberg and Michele are expert injectors who are dedicated to helping you achieve your ideal standard of beauty, which is why we focus on creating treatment plans that suit your needs only. We enjoy using Restylane® Silk because it allows us to adjust each injection to your personal aesthetic and overall lifestyle — it’s the perfect customizable treatment!

Receiving Restylane® Silk

You will receive Restylane® as a series of injections administered depending on the outline created by you and Dr. Karlsberg. The injections can be used to enhance almost any portion of the lips to emphasize the Cupid’s bow, the corners of the lips or the amount of projection from the face. The method in which your Restylane® injections are administered will depend on your specific treatment plan, cosmetic goals, and the natural structure of your lips.

Like all dermal filler injections, Restylane® Silk is temporary and will require maintenance injections every six months or so. However, many patients view the impermanence of their injections to be a benefit that allows them to customize their treatment even further. Restylane® Silk can be adjusted to your ever-changing personal aesthetic if need be or it can be discontinued altogether if you decide treatment is no longer right for you.

Immediately after your injections, your lips may look and feel swollen, which can last for up to two weeks. However, the injections will take effect immediately, and you should notice substantial results once the swelling subsides. Restylane® Silk has be proven to last up to six months, after which you can choose to receive additional injections.

To learn more about how Restylane® Silk can improve the natural contour of your lips along with fine line wrinkles, contact Ventura Institute of Dermatologic Arts and schedule a consultation. We would be happy to discuss your options and help you decide whether Restylane® Silk injections are right for you.
