Restylane® Silk | Auburn, AL
As our skin ages, the collagen and elastin in the dermis becomes damaged and thinner. We also lose subcutaneous volume of fat and bone in our faces. As a result the signs of aging such as wrinkles, bags under the eyes, deflated appearing cheeks, thin lips, jowling and loss of jaw line begin to appear. As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Aquadro can address each of the three main causes of an aged appearing face—skin damage, loss of volume, and laxity. Fortunately, Restylane® Silk is FDA approved for lip augmentation and correction of perioral rhytids (wrinkles).
How is Restylane® Silk different?
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.
