Get Full, Natural-Looking Lips with Cosmetic Restylane® Silk

Have you noticed the full, supple lips of your youth gradually becoming thinner and thinner as the years go on? Where once you enjoyed playing around with different lip colors and glosses, now you feel they’re more of a necessity to dress up your deflating smile?

As we age, our lips naturally thin out, lose their definition, and become a prominent place for lines and wrinkles to develop, giving away our age with every word we speak. But what can you do about thinning limps?

You’ve considered getting lip augmentation, but you just don’t want to risk looking like the person who overdid it on the filler. If only you could have your plump pout back without anyone knowing you had work done. Now you can with Restylane Silk injections from J. Ryan Rice, MD, FACS. Restylane Silk was formulated specifically with the lips in mind, and it shows. Or, rather, it doesn’t show.

Restylane®Silk Gives Lips a Subtle Plumping

Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved filler designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients over 21. Using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane products, Restylane Silk offers more precise results and a more natural appearance. That means you can get the look you desire without ever having to tell anyone how you got it.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the skin. Used to add volume to the face, HA molecules have the unique ability to attract water, so it helps the skin retain moisture and softness for a perfectly plump smile. Dr. Rice performs the treatment in his Penn Highlands Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery offices in DuBois and St. Marys. It only takes about 30 minutes. Results are immediate and last up to six months. Get younger-looking lips today!
