Introducing New Restylane® Silk

The newest filler has arrived at Dr. Shereen Timani’s office. It’s FDA approved Restyalne® Silk, the newest filler designed to fill in lines around the mouth and to plump the lips. Johns Creek Dermatology is so pleased to offer this new product. Restylane® Silk, Restylane®,Restylane-L® are the first FDA approved products specifically for use in and around the lips.

Restylane® Silk is a unique formulation of hyaluronic acid in a clear injectable gel that restores the characteristics of youthful skin and helps maintain lip fullness for up to 6 months. Unlike the original Restylane®, the new Restylane® Silk contains the anesthetic lidocaine to help take the sting out of the injection and improve comfort during the procedure. And Restylane® Silk is non-animal based, therefore, allergy pre-testing is not necessary.

Smooth Liplines Without the Overplumped Pout Look

Have you ever noticed how young skin is soft, supple and full? It’s because of the hyaluronic acid which is a substance naturally found in the body. One of the most common attributes of the aging process is the effect on the lips, because as you age, you produce less collagen. Collagen is a significant protein that supports the body’s soft tissue, and is what lends lips their pleasing plumpness. As a result, as we age, lips begin to thin and droop in the corners, in addition to the development of vertical lines and creases that enable our lipstick to feather outside of the actual lipline. But do we have to accept this shriveled look? “Not anymore”, says Dr. Timani.  Restylane® Silk is the perfect way to bring back natural fullness to your lips and fill the vertical lines without creating ridges or over-plumping because the product is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by the body which diminishes in production as you age.

So would you like to enhance your smile? Smooth, full lips are popular, but maybe you feel like you always end up with duckbill lips in order to eradicate the vertical lines.  Dr. Timani is ready to give you the full mouth you’ve always wanted. Restylane® Silk can subtly add shape and volume to your lips and plump the vertical lines without making you look like you got punched in the kisser.
