Dermatologist in New Orleans offers non-surgical lip augmentation with Restylane injectionsBy Dr. Mary Lupo
Cosmetic injectables are formulas that are injected under the skin or into the muscles to add volume or reduce muscle contractions and diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. By doing this, patients can turn back the hands of time and enjoy a more youthful look. The doctor assesses the specific needs and recommends the best way to proceed with anti-aging solutions. For many patients, Restylane is the injectable of choice.
Restylane L can be used in many ways, but one treatment often overlooked by patients is lip augmentation. Restylane provides a non-surgical method of plumping the lips in a natural yet noticeable way. Thin lips can make patients look unhappy or angry and give the appearance of pursed lips. However, with Restylane injections, patients can enjoy a more beautiful smile that lasts several months, avoiding the need for surgical procedures.
Restylane is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a polysaccharide that attracts water – therefore adding volume wherever it is administered. It can be used right in the lip area to add fullness, or even around the lips to treat lip lines. Nasolabial folds are another area where injections can be used to smooth the skin and provide less noticeable depth. The important thing is to keep balance, proportion and harmony to prevent an over-injected and unnatural result.
