After Restylane Silk - Luscious Lips

We now have a proven method to enhance lip fullness and minimize wrinkles and lines around the mouth that takes only one or two applications to take effect.

One of the most important factors in maintaining a healthy, youthful appearance is to have a brilliant smile. A nice smile can light up someone's face with a healthy glow and put others at ease. When people converse with one another, their eyes are automatically drawn to the mouths of other people as they talk. That is why so many people are self-conscious about the quality of their smiles. When one thinks of ways to improve a smile, the initial thought is always dentistry. In fact, a whopping 87% of those who had a cosmetic dentistry procedure performed did so in order to improve their physical attractiveness as well as their self-esteem. (1) However, there are other ways to improve a smile, such as smoothing out the wrinkles and lines around the mouth that naturally occur as a person ages. A newly approved product, Restylane Silk, is now hitting the market and was specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement for patients that are over 21 years of age.

Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar that is naturally found in skin. It was designed specifically to provide natural-looking results to the problem areas that can occur around the mouth as people get older. Aging can cause the lips to thin, to lose their shape, and increase the number of vertical lines that appear above the lip. The result is a mouth that looks tired and worn out, but this can be counteracted with the use of Restylane Silk that is applied by a trained medical practitioner, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas.

This treatment in fighting the ravages of time is extremely new. Restylane Silk is the first and only FDA-approved filler designed specifically for the treatment of lips and the lines around them. The unique particle gel formula, coupled with the ultrafine needle used to enhance accuracy, ensures that the treatment will result in softer, more precise results which is what's needed for a healthy, natural smile. Only a few doctors within the country are currently certified to use Restylane Silk, with one of those being Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology.

The procedure for using Restylane Silk is usually about 30-40 minutes. The results for this treatment have been tremendous. In a clinical study, it was observed that 77% of patients treated with Restylane Silk showed a one point (out of a five points scale) improvement in lip fullness within eight weeks after treatment, and a full 59% of patients maintained lip fullness six months after treatment. The same study also found that 98% of patients using Restylane Silk showed visible lip fullness improvement within 14 days after being injected, and 76% of the patients reported that they still had lip improvement six months after the procedure was done. (2) It's hard to argue with results such as those that occur just after one or two treatments.

Cosmetic physicians are excited about the results shown by Restylane Silk. Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology notes, "I am extremely pleased to bring this new FDA-approved product to my patients. There is now a proven method to enhance lip fullness and minimize wrinkles and lines around the mouth that takes only one or two applications to take effect. I am also proud that Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas is one of the only offices in Nevada to offer this injectable as it will not be widely available in other offices for months. I am also a Restylane/Dysport trainer for the country as well, so you know I have a great deal of experience using these products." (3)

As with any cosmetic treatment, there are potential side effects to consider. The most common were swelling, tenderness, bruising, pain, and redness, and it must be noted that these effects were usually mild and lessened in severity within two to seven days. It is always vital to fully discuss any treatment with a licensed medical professional, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas, so that they can fully discuss any potential side effects and make sure that the patient is a suitable candidate for such treatment.

In the end, people now have a viable and FDA-approved treatment to improve the appearance of their smile by making their lips fuller and reducing the severity of wrinkles and lines. Currently, only a few licensed practitioners within the country are able to use Restylane Silk, so it's best to contact one of them, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology, to schedule an appointment. The final reward could be the ability to smile with confidence afterwards.
