Restylane® Silk in Atlanta, GA
Do you have thin or uneven lips? Are you embarrassed by the small lines and wrinkles around your mouth? Now you can have beautiful, young lips with just one treatment of Restylane® Silk. Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Cristen Catignani and Dr. Christopher Killingsworth, a double board-certified Atlanta plastic surgeon, are proud to offer Restylane® Silk to the residents of Atlanta, Cumming, Forsyth County and surrounding areas in Georgia.
Injections to Improve the Lips
The delicate skin of your lip area is at greater risk for developing lines and wrinkles. The presence of these signs of aging is compounded for men and women who have small, thin or asymmetrical lips. With Restylane® Silk treatments from Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Cristen Catignani, your lips look younger and fuller.
The Perfect Lips
For lips to be considered perfect, they must have certain characteristics:
- A well-defined “cupid’s bow”, the indentation at the middle of the upper lip
- Symmetry from side to side
- Volume in the middle of the lips
- Appropriate alignment with the pupil of the eye
- An upper lip that stands out slightly more than the lower lip when viewed from the side
Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani will give you perfect lips by carefully sculpting the upper and lower lips with Restylane® Silk.
Evaluation for Restylane® Silk Treatments
The most important consideration for Restylane® Silk treatments is ensuring that you will tolerate the ingredients in the formulation. Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani takes the time to understand your medical history, including current medications and allergic reactions that may indicate that Restylane® Silk is not the right option for you. If this is the case, he may recommend alternative dermal fillers or lip implants. If Restylane® Silk is the best choice, he explains the anticipated outcomes of treatment and what to expect during treatment.
The Restylane® Silk Procedure
Restylane® Silk works in the delicate lip area because the formulation is very smooth, consisting of small particles of active ingredients. As such, the injections are typically well-tolerated by patients. Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani uses a very fine needle to inject Restylane® Silk in several areas of the lips. As they work, they may massage the area around the injection site to distribute the product. You will see immediate improvement in your lips. For the first week after the injections, your lips may feel slightly tender and sore. You may also have drops of blood where the needle was injected. Most patients have fuller lips for six months after the initial treatment, and additional treatments will maintain the fullness of your lips.
