Restylane® has taken the cosmetic world by storm as one of the newest forms of hyaluronic acid soft-tissue fillers. Recently, this product gained the approval of the FDA. One of the things that makes Restylane® such a powerful tool for adding volume to the lips is that this product is formulated with lidocaine. Lidocaine is an anesthetic, and it makes the entire procedure more comfortable. Restylane® is different from some of the other products that are used for lip augmentation. It is able to restore lip volume in a natural way.
Everyone Loses Lip Volume
Restoring lip volume in a natural way is something that everyone should be concerned about. This is because volume loss in your lips and in your face is a natural part of aging. A few years ago, the only option for addressing this lack of volume was to use surgical procedures. Now, thanks to Restylane®, non-surgical techniques can be used to provide rejuvenation around the lips and mouth.
The Difference is the Hyaluronic Acid
As we mentioned, this product is hyaluronic acid-based. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that naturally is found in the skin. This compound plays a pivotal role in restoring and maintaining the moisture in your skin. As you get older, your body starts to produce less and less hyaluronic acid. This is one of the reasons why you lose volume in places like your lips.
Once your lips are injected with Restylane®, a unique process takes place. Your lips instantly look fuller as a result of the gel that was injected into them. At the same time, the hyaluronic acid is working to encourage your lips to hold onto moisture. This is the reason why this procedure will produce results that can last for months, if not a year.
One of the amazing things about the hyaluronic acid gel that is used in this product is that when it is first injected, it is very malleable. This means that your lips can be shaped and molded the way you want immediately after the injection.
Getting Full, Luscious Lips
It is surprising the number of women who are frustrated with their thin lips. It is not uncommon to hear women say that they have always battled with thin lips and want their lips to be a little bit fuller. In most cases, women are not looking to have lips like you see on some popular reality tv stars that just look overblown. They want something that’s natural and that does not attract attention to them, but makes them feel better about themselves. This is exactly what you get from Restylane®.
