Restylane® Silk in Atlanta, GA

Residents of Buckhead, Vinings, Sandy Springs and the surrounding areas are now discovering the benefits of a safe and effective cosmetic procedure called Restylane® Silk. The Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery offers Restylane® Silk, a cosmetic injection that reduces wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and adds plumpness to lips.

What Is Restylane® Silk?

Restylane® Silk is a special gel formulated from ultra-tiny beads, smoother and smaller than those used in other Restylane® products. Restylane® Silk is unique in its application to resolve a number of cosmetic issues. Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved procedure for enhancing the volume of the lips, but it can do even more for our clients. In addition to enhancing volume, Restylane Silk® works to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, which medical professionals refer to as perioral rhytids or “smoker’s lines”.

Benefits of Restylane® Silk

Restylane® Silk is primarily used to treat the following:

  • Lips that have become thinner and less plump from age.
  • The appearance of fine lines and creases around the edge of the lip commonly referred to as “smoker’s lines”.

A natural stage in the aging process is when the lips begin to shrink in volume, losing voluptuousness and youthfulness. When combined with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, this can drastically change the appearance of the face. Restylane® Silk mimics the natural body and plumpness of youthful lips, giving clients a younger, shapelier appearance that looks and feels completely natural.

When compared to alternative lip enhancing treatments, Restylane® Silk results in a more natural-looking enhancement of the lips while simultaneously smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines around the lips.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Restylane® Silk?

Restylane® Silk is a safe, FDA-approved procedure with minimal side effects, making it a strong choice for most qualified candidates. A qualified candidate for this procedure would be any individual who is dissatisfied with lines around their mouth or a lack of lip fullness. If you desire plumper, more youthful lips with a natural appearance, consider Restylane® Silk, an effective, minimally invasive solution.

How Should I Prepare For Restylane® Silk?

There is very little preparation needed for Restylane® Silk appointments, as it is a very fast and easy procedure. Made from all natural ingredients, it is unlikely that Restylane® Silk will result in an allergic reaction. However, Dr. Work will consult with you about any previous allergic reactions and any medications or supplements you are currently using. In your consultation with Dr. Work, please take care to tell him about any previous injection treatments you’ve undergone or any important components of your health history to ensure he can best avoid any possible adverse reaction. Depending on your unique needs and history, Dr. Work may counsel you to avoid certain medications, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and vitamin E supplements for one week before you receive a Restylane® Silk treatment.

How is Restylane® Silk Administered?

First, a topical agent is applied to the lips to numb the area and minimize discomfort. Next, Dr. Work will apply the Restylane® Silk gel via an injection directly into the lips using a very thin, small needle. Clients can expect to see significant results immediately, with benefits continuing to accrue over time as increased hydration will smooth out the fine lines and creases around the lips. Most Restylane® Silk treatments take about 30 minutes to administer, with benefits lasting between 10 and 12 months. There is no downtime following the procedure and the only side effects are some minimal discomfort and swelling. Most of our clients resume normal activity and work immediately following the treatment.
