Retylane Silk is a very fine hylaronic acid that is considered "thin", becuase of this consistency, it is used by Dr. Capuano in the per-oral area (the area around your lips) to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. It is also used to fill lips, for a more youthful look and also to plump up the lips of those who are interested. As we age our lips begin to thin, lose their shape and sometimes we have an increase in the vertical lines above the lip. This is a temporary treatment and lasts for roughly 6-8 months.
If you are at least 21 years of age or older, and in good health and are interested in improving the look of your lips, you may be a candidate for this procedure.
A consultation with Dr. Capuano will determine whether Restylane Silk and you are a good fit. Call our office for an appointment at 201-820-5280
The procedure itself takes about twenty minutes. The product is adminstered by Dr. Capuano in our office as an injection to the lip or peri oral area. You can expect moderate swelling for 2-3 days, swelling will subside by 5 days.
If you are a male or female over the age of 21 and are concerned with your thinning lips, this procedure may be right for you.
