Restylane Silk is an elegant solution to smoker’s lines and sensitive thin skin. Is this you? You’re getting a little older – your lips are thinning and flattening out. Those little vertical lines that used to only show up when you pursed your lips are now there ALL the time. What’s a gal to do? Loss of lip volume is inevitable. The little lines that come along with thinning lips generally are unavoidable too, and the deeper they become, the more difficult they are to deal with. At Total Dermatology we strive to deliver the best Restylane Silk Irvine has to offer.
Adding volume to the lip body helps the lip AND the lines, but for anyone with more than the faintest lipstick lines (also called smoker’s lines), only adding lip volume won’t do the trick. Welcome Restylane Silk – the first FDA approved gel filler for lips and those tiny lines! Restylane Silk has a clinically-backed study showing lip improvement past 6 months for 76% of the 221 patients in the study. That’s pretty remarkable when you consider the amount of movement of the lip muscles!
Most fillers are too “thick” to place in the lines around the mouth and those that are liquid enough to not cause bumps seem to go away very quickly or don’t provide adequate lift. Restylane Silk has solved that problem. Restylane Silk will:

Many people with lips that have adequate skin thickness can use Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm or Belotero. Where Restylane Silk really shines is with the patient who has delicately thin lip tissue and thinner skin. Absolutely, though, the tiny squiggly lines around any lips will be best treated with Restylane Silk. If you’ve tried other fillers for your thinning lips or not been satisfied with the outcomes from thicker fillers, then Restylane Silk is an excellent option.
Bear in mind that lack of volume in the lips may be a genetic trait and you don’t have to be older to need volume. Our Irvine Restylane Silk patients must be 21 or older. Dr. Pilest will help you decide which gel formulation will work the best for you.
In most cases, the thin lines require that Dr. Pilest use a needle to place the product where it’s needed near the surface of the skin. Injections into the lip body and border can generally be placed with a smooth tip microcannula. Restylane Silk does contain lidocaine to make the injections more comfortable.
Microneedling is a “new” technology for helping to smooth lines around the mouth. Deep lines and wrinkles can be smoothed using Fraxel Repair which is generally followed by fillers.
