Dermal fillers can be used to enhance the appearance of the cheeks, mouth area, the eyelids, and even the lips. Acid-based fillers are the most commonly used for lip augmentation, and Restylane® is one of the most effective of these acid gel fillers. Many of our clients are concerned about thinning lips and lip wrinkling due to aging factors. In most cases, the problem is one of lip tissue moisture. Our lip tissue is spongy, and a decrease in the ability for this tissue to hold moisture in place results in a thinning and wrinkling effect.
The lips may also look a bit unbalanced and stretched as we continue to age. Plumping up the lips and restoring the natural curves of the lip boundary is just about every adult’s dream, and Restylane® can help make this dream a reality.
How Restylane® Works
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, but our bodies produce less and less of it as we age. The acid particles are mostly located in our skin, and this is what keeps the skin tissue moist. The acid binds to water molecules and holds them in place. When Restylane® is injected into the lip tissue in just the right places, the gel acts as a molding agent, and the acid works to attract and hold moisture. This can really help with plumping and favorable reshaping of the lips.
A major concern of our clients is the problem of lip boundary shape. The natural swoop of the upper lip boundary tends to straighten out as we continue to age. Restylane® can help combat this visual sign of aging, especially when we combine it with PDO threads.
After consulting with you, we will recommend a certain type of Restylane® based on your total lip volume and the amount of plumping necessary to achieve the desired results. Within just a few hours, you’ll notice added volume and the beginning of lip boundary reshaping. You can also combine this treatment with Exilis Ultra for added results.
This type of lip augmentation has its advantages. There’s no need for implants or fat transfers, and unless there’s a real requirement for lip shape restructuring, there’s no need for any sort of gel fixation for the purpose of raising the lips or making them firmer. The additional water in the lip tissue generally achieves the goal.
