Along with death and taxes,losing volume in your lips is inevitable. Bummer.
As your lips age,they get thinner and paler, and also start to lose their curvy shape and plump form.Another fact of life is that over decades of smiling,kissing,laughing,smoking,whistling,and whatever else you do with your mouth,fine vertical lines will start to appear that are a telltale sign of aging.The deeper these lines become,the more difficult they are to manage.The end result is what cosmetics companies refer to as ‘Lipstick Bleed.’
Just in time for Valentine’s Day,there is a new kid on the block that promises to stop Lipstick Bleed in its tracks.
Restylane Silk is the first and only FDA approved gel filler for lips and the fine lines around the mouth (often called Smoker’s Lines). It is clinically-proven to show lip improvement past 6 months for 76% of the 221 patients in the study. This is considered good longevity when you consider that we are constantly moving and flapping our lips which causes most fillers to break down more rapidly than in other areas of the face, such as the cheeks and chin, for example.
So how is Restylane Silk different from other hyaluronic acid fillers?
Most fillers are too thick to place in the lines around the mouth. Others may be fine enough to use in these tiny lines, but they may not last well or cause lumps and irregularities that can be very visible in this area. Plus they may not offer enough of a lift to give your lips enough extra volume to deliver a younger, plumper effect. Restylane Silk has solved that problem because it if formulated to manage all of the above. It adds volume as well as smoothing out fine lines and adding definition to the pink skin of the lip (called the vermillion border).
“Restylane Silk is the newest hyaluronic acid filler that includes lidocaine, which reduces discomfort during treatment. I often use Restylane Silk on fine lines around the mouth, especially lipstick bleed lines that are traditionally more difficult to fill. The formula consists of smaller particles, so it’s smoother and requires less molding after injection,” said New York facial plastic surgeon Andrew Jacono, MD, FACS.
