Do you have thin lips? Are they making you unhappy with your appearance? At Le Beau Visage Medical Spa in Frisco, TX, our Restylane Silk treatments can help your lips look fuller and provide you with long-lasting results that you’ll love.
How Long Does Restylane Silk Last?
Your lips can affect the way your face looks overall in several ways. Full, plump lips will provide you with a youthful appearance. However, if you have thinner lips, then you may look very serious. Thin lips can also age your appearance by quite a bit.
If you’re looking for a way to fill in your lips to help them look plumper, or your lips are uneven and you’d like to fix that, then Restylane Silk can help. This is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is made with hyaluronic acid. While there are several different types of Restylane, this particular formula is designed to target the lips. It offers long-lasting results, with most candidates enjoying their results for somewhere between 6 to 9 months, though some people find they last for up to a year.
What Is Restylane Silk?
All Restylane products are made with hyaluronic acid as the main ingredient. This is a naturally occurring sugar that is produced by the human body. You’ll find it in your skin, connective tissues, and your eyes.
This ingredient provides important lubrication for your body. It attracts moisture molecules, binding to them and providing important hydration for your body. When Silk is injected into your lips, the hyaluronic acid will provide your lips with fullness and plumpness.
What Can It Treat?
This filler is designed to target the lip area. If you have very thin lips, then it can help fill them in, making you look much younger and healthier. You may have thin lips because of the natural process of aging, where it’s normal to lose a lot of volume in all areas of the face. However, thin lips can also simply be caused by genetics.
Some people may also have uneven lips and want a way to make them look more symmetrical. Silk can help in this instance too, and can also provide more definition.
What Other Types of Restylane Are There?
If you’re thinking that Silk might be the right way to treat your lip-related concerns, then you may want to take a look at the other products like the Restylane line.
Depending on what your concerns are and what areas of your face you’d like treated, you may receive one or more types of this dermal filler.
This is the original formula which is designed for general use around the face. You can use Restylane to target wrinkles and fine lines on your face, as well as deeper folds. It can also help fill to get rid of any scars you may have on your face and it can diminish the appearance of lines line crow’s feet.
One of the other ways Restylane can benefit your face is by targeting the area around your eyes. It’s natural to lose volume in this area, but the bags and hollowness that appear as a result can age your appearance and make you look constantly tired. Restylane will fill in the area and help you look younger and more alert.
Volume loss occurs all over your face as you get older. One of the places where this tends to be very evident is the cheek area. Hollow cheeks can age your appearance and may also make you look sickly. As you lose volume in your cheeks, your skin will also begin to sag, resulting in jowls.
You can use Lyft to put volume into your cheeks. This will help them look more defined and fuller. It will also pull any sagging skin, tightening and smoothing it out and reducing the appearance of jowls.
Another common place where you’ll notice volume loss is your nose and mouth area. Because this area moves around a lot as you speak and make expressions, it’s common for wrinkles and folds to appear in the area.
The vertical lines that appear between your nose and your mouth are called nasolabial folds, laugh lines or smile lines. They can vary by deepness and severity. If your folds in this area aren’t particularly deep, then Refyne will provide you with exactly what you need to fill in the area and reduce the appearance of these lines.
Like Refyne, Defyne is designed to target your nasolabial folds. However, its formula is designed for deeper folds. That means that if your laugh lines are particularly deep, you’ll receive Defyne to fill in the area, providing you with smoother skin and an overall younger appearance.

During your consultation, we’ll be happy to address any questions or concerns that you might have, so don’t hesitate to ask. Your comfort and safety are our top priorities, and we want to make sure that you’re happy with your decision to come to us.
Preparing for Treatment
After your consultation, we’ll provide you with specific instructions for how to prepare for your injections. There isn’t much that you need to do to prepare. Make sure you follow our full instructions to ensure that your treatment is both safe and effective.
We’ll request that you avoid taking certain things during the week before your appointment. Any medications or supplements that could act as blood thinners will need to be avoided. This includes ibuprofen, aspirin, and vitamin E. This will help to prevent any bruising. For the day or two before your injections, make sure that you are not drinking any alcohol or smoking.
When you come to our clinic for your appointment, we’ll make sure that your experience is safe, comfortable, and that you get the long-lasting results you want. Before applying the injections, we’ll start by preparing your skin. To do this, we’ll carefully clean the areas where you’ll be receiving the injections. We might also apply some numbing cream to the area to increase your comfort.
Once your skin is ready, we’ll start applying the injections. We’ll apply small amounts of the product at a time to your lips to help ensure that you get natural-looking but still effective results. Your appointment will be fast, with most sessions taking less than an hour to complete.
One of the benefits of getting a treatment like Restylane is that it’s non-invasive. Unlike surgical treatments, this means that there is a very little recovery that needs to take place after your treatment. In fact, there is essentially no downtime required for this treatment.
For the next few days, you’ll just need to be mindful of a few things. Make sure that you continue avoiding alcohol and smoking. You should also not stay out in direct sunlight, and avoid any physical activities that might make you sweat excessively.
When Will I See Results?
The results from your Restylane Silk treatment will last a long time, with most patients enjoying them for between 6 to 9 months. But while something that will last you a long time is important, getting fast results is most likely important to you too.
There are many injectables on the market, but some of them can take a while to show results. One of the benefits of all Restylane products is that you’ll see a change in your appearance almost immediately as the product takes up space beneath your skin. Over the next few days, results will become even more obvious.
