Lip Augmentation | Rejuvenation in Washington, DC, by Dr. West
Dermal Fillers for Lip Augmentation
Restylane®, Restylane Refyne®, Restylane Kysse®, and Juvéderm Ultra XC® are dermal fillers that provide a soft, natural lip enhancement.
Restylane, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Kysse and Juvéderm Ultra XC are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that are injected directly into-and-around the lips using an ultrafine needle, adding volume and creating definition of the lip line which results in a youthful, plump appearance.
If you have naturally thin lips or have noticed loss of volume in your lips over time and would like a fuller look, Restylane, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Kysse, and Juvéderm Ultra XC may all be great solutions for you. Dr. Tina West will determine which filler is most suitable for you upon your initial consultation.
Following lip augmentation, there is swelling for up to 48 hours. Final results are immediate soft, smooth pouty lips that last 9 – 12 months.
Lip Rejuvenation with Restylane Silk
Dr. West’s lip rejuvenation technique addresses concerns of many women over 40 who begin to notice “bleeding” of lipstick due to loss of definition between the lip and skin, a “barcode” effect of wrinkles above the lip, and/or a “corrugated” lip texture. Many women are concerned about their lips appearing “done,” and Dr. West reassures her patients that this particular technique, using a specific dermal filler pioneered specifically for rejuvenation (as opposed to augmentation), results in a completely natural but restored appearance.
Restylane Silk® is the first hyaluronic acid filler formulated with lidocaine that is FDA-approved specifically to rejuvenate the lips and lines around the mouth in patients 21 years of age and older.
How Does Restylane Silk Work?
Restylane Silk is a clear, injectable hyaluronic acid filler made from long chains of sugars that occur naturally in the skin. It is uniquely formulated to create a softer consistency that fills in lines with a very natural look. Restylane Silk restores volume and moisture to the problematic areas around your mouth. Dr. West was selected by the product’s manufacturing company as a National Trainer for the advanced injection technique used with Restylane Silk to restore and redefine aging lips, without plumping. Your lips will appear younger, fresher and more defined, but nobody will know that you had anything done.
Is Restylane Silk Right For Me?
If you are noticing loss of lip border definition, fine lines above the lip, or “bleeding” of lipstick, Restylane Silk may be a good option for you. Dr. West will meet with you to see if Restylane Silk is the right treatment to help achieve your desired results.
How Long Will The Results Last?
Most patients can expect the effects of Restylane Silk to last up to one year, although individual results may vary.
