Are you unhappy with your current appearance? Do you miss the full, youthful face you used to have? At Allure Enhancement Center in Lafayette, LA, any of our Restylane treatments, including Restylane Silk, can help provide you with a younger, more supple, and healthier appearance.
What Is Restylane Silk Used for?
The way your lips look plays a huge role in your overall appearance. If you have very thin lips, then you may end up looking far more serious than you really are. Thin lips can also make you look older, while fuller lips can provide you with a much more youthful appearance.
Some people have naturally very thin lips. Other people have lost a considerable amount of volume around the mouth area as a natural side effect of aging. Whatever the reason, if you’re looking to add some fullness to your lips, then Restylane Silk can help them look fuller, plumper, and provide you with a younger look.
What Is Restylane?
Restylane is a line of dermal fillers, all of which work to provide fullness and smoothness to your skin. When you receive any of the injectables from a reputable clinic, you’ll be able to get back the youthful appearance you may have been missing.
All of these fillers contain hyaluronic acid as their main ingredient. This is a sugar that you’ll find naturally in various parts of your body. Hyaluronic acid is beneficial for your skin for several reasons.
How Does It Work?
This is an injectable filler, which means that it’s injected into your skin using a very fine needle. A thin needle helps ensure that your injections are accurate and treating the specific areas you’re concerned about. Once it’s been injected, the hyaluronic acid that Restylane products are made with begins to work.
The first thing that the hyaluronic acid does is provide immediate fullness to the areas where it’s been injected. This lifts your skin and smooths it out while also making it look plumper. It also stimulates your body’s production of collagen, which helps keep your skin firm.
What Does Silk Do?
There are several different products in the Restylane lineup. Silk is specifically formulated for use on and around the lips. This injectable is FDA-approved for candidates over the age of 21 who are looking for fuller, more defined lips.
When you get this particular type of Restylane, you’ll be able to get smooth and silky-feeling lips that look natural.
Other Types of Restylane
There are several types of this dermal filler besides Silk. If you’re looking to target other areas of your face, then you might receive Silk along with one or more other types of Restylane.
Your lips aren’t the only part of your face that will lose volume as you get older. You may have also noticed that your cheeks look hollower the older you get. This can make you look old, sickly, and gaunt. Your temples are also commonly affected by this issue.
Lyft is a fantastic solution to this particular issue. If you’re noticing that your cheeks or temples are looking thinner than they used to, then Lyft will help add fullness. Along with putting more volume into your face, it will also lift your skin which will prevent the formation of jowls.
It’s extremely common to get wrinkles around your nose and mouth. This is because this part of your face moves frequently throughout the day as you speak, make facial expressions, and eat. Unfortunately, because it moves around so much, the creases that are commonly formed on these areas start to become permanent as your skin loses elasticity.
To help smooth out wrinkles in these areas, you can receive Refyne injections. They are especially good for nasolabial folds or laugh lines. These are the wrinkles that run down from your nose towards your mouth. If you have mild to moderate lines in this area, Refyne could be the solution for you.
Like Refyne, Defyine is formulated to target your nasolabial folds. These wrinkles can age your appearance considerably, so filling them in will be extremely beneficial if you’re looking for a younger and healthier appearance.
Unlike Refyne, however, Defyne is made for nasolabial folds that are more severe. If you have particularly deep folds in this area, the Defyne can help add volume and smooth out the appearance of very deep wrinkles around your nose and mouth area.
Why Does Our Skin Change?
All Restylane products make great solutions for anyone looking to maintain a youthful appearance. But why do we get wrinkles in the first place? Changes in the texture and appearance of your skin are usually the result of a few factors. First, there are several chemicals in your skin that help it maintain its structure. This includes collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
As you get older, the amounts of these chemicals begin to lower. This makes your skin more susceptible to damage from things like unprotected sun exposure and other factors like excessive drinking and smoking which can exacerbate and speed up the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.
What Is Getting Restylane Treatment Like?
If you’re thinking about getting Restylane Silk or any other Restylane products, then you might be wondering what the treatment process actually looks like.
As long as you come to a reputable clinic like ours, you can trust that your treatment will be safe, effective, and will provide you with the long-lasting results you’re looking for.
Before the Treatment
Before we’re able to set you up with your treatment, we’ll need to book a consultation with you. This is an essential part of the process. During this time, we’ll be able to discuss with you what results in you’d like to see from your treatment as well as what your expectations are. Once we’ve determined this, we can figure out what a good treatment plan for you will look like.
We’ll also use this opportunity to take a look at your medical history. Doing this helps us to make sure that Restylane products are the right solution for your concerns. Once the consultation is done, we’ll be able to set you up with your injection appointment. We’ll also give you a list of instructions to follow before the day of your appointment arrives.
In order for your treatment to be as effective as possible, you’ll need to do a few things to prepare beforehand. Don’t worry, the list is small and the instructions are easy to follow. There are just a few things you’ll need to be mindful of avoiding during the week or so leading up to your appointment.
Make sure that you’re not taking medications like aspirin or ibuprofen or anything else that may act as a blood thinner. This will help to prevent bruising from the injections. You’ll also want to stop drinking and smoking in the 48 hours before it’s time for your injections.
When you arrive at our clinic, you’ll be welcomed by our friendly and highly-trained staff. Our number one priority is to keep you safe and comfortable throughout the entire treatment process. We’ll start by thoroughly cleaning the areas where the injections will be applied to help keep the process safe.
We may also apply a small amount of a topical numbing agent to help keep the experience pain-free. Once your skin has been prepared, we’ll begin applying the injections. Depending on how many injections you require, the entire treatment process should take somewhere between 15 minutes to an hour.
One of the major benefits of this treatment is that there is very little downtime required after your treatment is done. You’ll be able to leave our clinic and get back to your life right away. Because it’s non-invasive, there is little healing required, and you’ll just need to be cautious of a few things. Try to avoid direct sunlight as well as strenuous physical activity.
A few days after your treatment, you’ll begin to see the natural-looking results you’ve wanted. You can expect your results to last anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
