Giving patients in New Orleans the fuller lips they desire with Restylane SilkBy Dr. Mary Lupo
Restylane Silk was the first product approved by the FDA, engineered specifically for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth for patients 21 and older. Restylane silk is a filler made of hyaluronic acid that we can inject directly into the lips and surrounding area.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your body. Over time, the amount dissipates, causing the skin to lose volume, resulting in wrinkles and drooping of the skin.
This filler reduces lines and wrinkles, and gives your lips a fuller look. Because the injection contains lidocaine, the process is virtually pain free. With a series of two injections, Restylane Silk can enhance your appearance for up to six months.
Some of the stats on Restylane silk are:
- 98 percent of patients report a visible improvement in lip fullness within 14 days of the first injection.
- 59 percent of patients injected with Restylane Silk saw improvements lasting longer than six months.
Our mission at the Lupo Center is to provide patients with innovative, effective and ethical care to make each person look and feel their personal best. To fulfill our goal, we provide state-of-the-art medical, surgical and cosmetic treatments to all patients.
