A girl’s lips reach maximum fullness by about age 14 (16 for boys). After age 16, the process of thinning begins, and it continues throughout life. Lip profiles become flatter, losing prominence. The mouth lengthens, showing less teeth when you smile and making the nose look longer. The body produces less collagen and elastin as we age. The resulting thinner, lax skin is especially conspicuous in delicate areas such as around the mouth. The aesthetic team at EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center in Bend, OR suggest injections of Restylane Silk to restore youthful lips.
Restylane Silk is the first dermal filler approved by the FDA specifically for lip augmentation and improvement in wrinkles around the mouth. “Pre-juvenation” treatment can be started as early as age 21, to delay signs of aging indefinitely.

Plenty to smile about Treatment is well tolerated, since the formulation contains lidocaine, a numbing agent. In skilled hands, results are immediate, and look and feel natural. You can make normal mouth expressions. Depending on how your body metabolizes the product, you may not need a touch-up session for six months or more.
Most people overlook the mouth when addressing signs of aging, but it can add years to your face.
