The lip and mouth area is prone to developing signs of aging, specifically lost volume in the lips and lines around the mouth area. To address these concerns, Downtown Dermatology offers Restylane® Silk for men and women in the Columbus and Upper Arlington area.
Restylane® Silk is designed to treat the lip area to restore volume and soften lines. Like other areas of your face, the lips lose fat and other key elements as you get older. You may also develop lines that extend outward from the lips. Over time, your mouth appears downturn and less attractive. Restylane® Silk contains hyaluronic acid in a gel formula. The product corrects lines and poor lip volume by binding with water in the layers of skin.
Choosing to enhance your lip area with Restylane® Silk treatments means that you have:
The FDA has approved Restylane® Silk for use in the lips to add volume and the lip area to soften lines and wrinkles.
The procedure for Restylane® Silk is quick, easy and comfortable. We use a very fine needle to inject the product into the layers of skin. You may feel a slight pressure as the gel is injected. Most patients remain comfortable during the treatment, but we can administer a topical numbing agent prior to the injections if needed.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Hicks-Graham will determine if Restylane® Silk is the right injectable product for you. The treatments require no special preparation. Just set up a time that is convenient for you. The appointment takes less than 60 minutes.
Your lips will look fuller and younger after just one treatment. In rare instances, patients do have some very mild symptoms after the injections, such as bruising, tenderness, and swelling. The symptoms are localized to the injection sites and last 24 to 48 hours.
Restylane® Silk treatments are considered elective by your medical insurance. As such, you are responsible for the cost. Payment can be made by cash, check, major credit card or CareCredit® financing.
If you want fuller, younger lips without surgery, Restylane® Silk might be right for you. Dr. Hicks-Graham will explain the benefits of Restylane® Silk during your consultation.
Full lips that are free of lines and wrinkles are part of a youthful appearance.
