Orlando based Restylane Provider Overview:

Restylane Silk is an injection-able gel specifically used to smooth lines around the mouth and give the lips a more youthful appearance. Restylane Silk is a nonsurgical procedure and has been proven to be a great treatment for unwanted vertical lines around the lips and mouth. It comes from a full line of Restylane products including Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine and Perlane. All of these products target facial folds and unwanted wrinkles.

Background for the Restylane Silk Treatment:

Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid when we’re young. This acid delivers nutrients to the skin, adds volume under the skin and helps tissues retain moisture and softness.

As we age, our skin begins the show the effects of natural, everyday activities, especially in the sensitive areas around our mouths. Eating, drinking, sipping, laughing, frowning, crying—these are activities and expressions that exhibit their effects in lines around the mouth that deepen over time.

Skin naturally loses elasticity and moisture over the years. Building blocks such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and bone density that give facial skin its structure decrease with time. Genetics and other contributing factors such as sun exposure, contributes to the occurrence of lines and wrinkles.

These lines occur from the nose down to the corners of the mouth, around the edges of the mouth, and along the upper lip (known as marionette lines) or “living lines.”

Trusted Center for Derm Fillers

At Newman Plastic Surgery, our patients who choose Restylane Silk treatments receive injections of the filler in the appropriate areas (submucosal implantation). The filler smooths out the “living lines” and plumps lips.

Our patients who come to us for Restylane treatments are typically men and women who are beginning to see natural signs of aging occurring in their faces. They want to address the lines they see developing around their mouths. Some, who experience a thinning of their lips, are looking for a simple procedure to fill out their lips.

Patients who undergo Restylane treatments may experience some mild discomfort during the procedure. We minimize the discomfort with the application of a numbing agent. Additional anesthetic options are available for our patients who are especially concerned about possible discomfort or pain.
