Over the years, the body’s natural stores of fat will begin to diminish and collagen production will slow. These changes can cause many changes to the skin and facial features. Unfortunately, the lips may start to lose their volume and shape, thinning and flattening. After decades of wear and tear, fine lip lines can begin to appear around the mouth, as well. Without most people realizing, their mouth can suddenly add unwanted years onto the appearance, detracting from otherwise beautiful, healthy features. For those patients in Sonoma and Marin County, help for diminishing lip volume and frustrating lip lines is close at hand, with Restylane Silk from Plastic Surgery Associates and Allegro MedSpa.
Restylane Silk from Allegro MedSpa
Restylane Silk is a cutting-edge soft tissue filler, created specifically to restore shape and dimension to thinning lips. Made from tiny particles of naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Restylane Silk has a creamy gel formula that provides consistent results and precise lip enhancement.
Over time, Restylane Silk’s HA draws in moisture from surrounding tissues, as well as encourages the body’s own collagen production. A single treatment can provide full lips for up to six months. As the first and only product of its kind to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for providing lip volume and smoothing frustrating lip lines, Restylane Silk is safe and effective.

Your Restylane Silk Consultation
Anyone frustrated with thinning lips, or who has started to notice fine lines developing around the mouth, is encouraged to schedule a Restylane Silk consultation at Plastic Surgery Associates and Allegro MedSpa. During this visit, Dr. Francisco Canales or Dr. Heather Furnas will evaluate the mouth and surrounding facial tissues. They will review the patient’s medical history and discuss at length their aesthetic desires. Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas will then explain the soft tissue filler process and provide Before/After photographs of their recent Restylane Silk patients. Together, the patient and physician will decide if Restylane Silk is the right method for restoring plumper, fuller lips. If so, a personalized Restylane Silk treatment plan will be created. At this appointment, Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas may also recommend additional treatments, such as Botox Cosmetic, for optimal results and complete facial rejuvenation.
The Ideal Candidate for Restylane Silk
Restylane Silk can make an excellent option for anyone who has started to notice thinning, narrow lips or the appearance of fine lip lines around the mouth. An ideal candidate will be over 21, in generally good health, and who understands the Restylane Silk treatment process. Additionally, potential patients should have realistic expectations for their results. Restylane Silk is safe for all skin types and ethnicities. However, anyone with a known allergy to lidocaine is not a candidate for Restylane Silk.
Treatment with Restylane Silk
At Plastic Surgery Associates and Allegro MedSpa, all Restylane Silk sessions are performed in a private treatment room, taking less than half an hour. Using a very small needle, the injections are applied to the predetermined area, sculpting the lips and smoothing lip lines. No anesthesia is necessary, as Restylane Silk is premixed with lidocaine for ultimate comfort. Patients may feel a mild pinch or pressure during treatment, however each injection will gently numb the treatment area. As soon as the Restylane Silk session is complete, patients are free to return to their normal routine.
Results from Restylane Silk
Restylane Silk injections do not require any downtime. Although patients may note temporary redness or minor swelling, these quickly resolve. All routine activities can be resumed the same day, including work, school, exercise, and the application of makeup.
Results from Restylane Silk will be immediately noticeable. Over the next several weeks, as the body’s natural production of collagen gets a kick-start, patients can see additional improvement in the shape of their lips. The results from Restylane Silk can last up to six full months, at which time a repeat session will safely maintain benefits.
Restylane Silk Side-Effect and Risks
Restylane Silk has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective way to temporarily plump the lips and smooth lip lines. Side-effects of injections are mild, but may include pinpoint bleeding, bruising, redness, swelling, and tenderness. These issues normally diminish over the following week. More serious risks from Restylane Silk are rare. During your consultation with Dr. Canales, Dr. Furnas, or an aesthetic provider at Allegro MedSpa, the potential risks and side-effects of Restylane Silk will be discussed in detail.
