Lip Augmentation with Restylane Silk

realself-top100-doctor-2015Restylane Silk was FDA-approved for use in the U.S. Market in June 2014.  Restylane Silk® is one of the newest and safest dermal fillers that is FDA-approved for lip augmentation and fine lines around the mouth.  This dermal filler has the smallest particle size, allowing it to smooth fine wrinkles such as perioral rhytids (lipstick lines) or for lip augmentation. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body. Restylane maintains its shape using the body’s own moisture. As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide lasting results. Restylane Silk® is FDA approved for the lips.  The Restylane family of products, Perlane, Restylane, and now Restylane Silk are all hyaluronic acid gel products composed of gel particles.  The different products of this family are distinguished by their particle size, imparting different filling uses for each product.

How Long Does it Last?
Studies have shown that Restylane® generally lasts for six months. Follow-up treatments are typically scheduled at six month intervals. Due to the volume  of patients that we see at our practice, we have noticed that 10% – 20% of the product stays behind leaving a natural desirable result.

Risk & Recovery
Restylane Silk shows positive results with patients of all ages.  Whether you desire a slightly bee-stung appearance or a new pout, injectors at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa are advanced injectors and will achieve superior results and patient satisfaction. Your aesthetic nurse or physician will inject the Restylane Silk in one or more injection sites. The results are immediate, with some minor to moderate bruising and swelling. Additional treatments are necessary to keep your lips full and luscious.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
