Lip Enhancement in New Jersey
You say a lot of words each day, flash a lot of smiles, and maybe even blow a few kisses. Wouldn't it be great to know that when attention is focused on the source of all that activity, people will be seeing a healthy, full, defined pair of lips? Patients interested in lip enhancement or restoration should consider Restylane® Silk from New Jersey's Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care and Laser Center. Dr. Deborah Spey and Dr. Rachael Hartman offer the cosmetic because of its natural-looking, long-lasting results.
Restylane® Silk is ideal for patients looking to plump up naturally thin lips, to replace volume lost due to aging, or simply to bring their lips more in proportion with the rest of their face.
How Does Restylane® Silk Work?
Restylane® Silk is part of a family of dermal fillers, which are injectables that literally fill in specifically targeted areas of the skin to help round it out, often to restore a softer, more youthful look. The main ingredient in these popular fillers is hyaluronic acid, a chemical found naturally throughout the human body, where it serves to lubricate and cushion various organs and structures. In the skin, hyaluronic acid provides hydration and volume.
Restylane® products are frequently used to smooth out wrinkles and folds, with Silk specifically targeting lip lines that run vertically between the nose and mouth. Silk is also designed for lip enhancement, subtly bringing an attractive roundness to lips that otherwise lack much definition.
