Thin lips and creases in the corners of the mouth can be a cosmetic worry for men and women who are conscious of the vital part that the lips play in first impressions and speaking. Promd Health now offers a possible solution to this issue with Restylane Silk®, a dermal filler meant to plump the lips and smooth wrinkles.
What is Restylane Silk®?
Restylane Silk® is an injectable gel typically dispersed into the corners of the mouth to make the lips more plump while at the same time assuaging the wrinkles along the corners of the mouth and the jawline, clinically known as the marionette lines. Restylane Silk® uses a formulation derived from Hyaluronic Acid, a chemical naturally produced by the body that plays a part in skin repair and shape.
How Can Restylane Silk® Benefit me?
Restylane Silk® can benefit men and women who are bothered by natural creases and wrinkles that occur to the jowls and lips with age. This product has the potential to eliminate obvious signs of age on the face and to make the patient seem as if they were a younger version of themselves with no surgery, no downtime, and no telltale signs that they have had a cosmetic treatment performed.
Is it Safe?
The procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete, is not surgical, and the patient should be able to continue with their day afterwards, though avoiding makeup and alcohol during the first 24 hours following the treatment is recommended. During the consultation appointment used to schedule your treatment, one of our professionals will sit down with you to discuss your medical history in order to identify any potential risk for complications with the procedure.
The most typical side effects of the treatment include tenderness and redness of the skin along with minor itchiness. These side effects typically last for two weeks time if they do develop.
Do I Qualify?
Most patients dissatisfied with the worn look of age apparent on their skin are applicable, though a conversation with one of our medical professionals regarding their medical history is required for confirmation. Alternative treatment options may be discussed if necessary.
