Do you look in the mirror and dream of fuller, more luscious lips? First off, do not grab your smallest cup and plant your pucker for the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge. Like Kylie, it’s ridiculous. Lip vacuuming causes you to break delicate capillaries around the mouth, creates bruising and can turn into a disaster if your glass cup shatters under the pressure.
Don’t be peer-pressured into looking like an NYC housewife gone wrong; if you go to the right doctor your lips can look like you were born with them! Just like Kylie’s do (who clearly has had lip augmentation).
Ladies, please avoid the Trout Pout! I hate to burst your bubble but when it comes to lips, bigger is not always better. You can add a little pucker to your pout without looking bizarre. Whether you were born with thin lips, have lips that don’t quite match, or they have thinned out with age, dermal fillers like Restylane Silk can help restore fullness or add the dramatic effect you’re looking for.
Restylane Silk, a new addition to the Restylane family of products, is the newest filler on the market. Restylane Silk is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that provides structure and moisture to the skin, adding youthful plumpness. Traditional Restylane has been successfully used for lip augmentation by Dr. Pearlman for years; Restylane Silk however, is specifically formulated for meticulous shaping and defining of the lips and smoothing fine lines.
The Cupid’s Bow treatment properly restores lip shape and volume using only a small amount of Restylane Silk. First the border of the lip (where your lip liner goes) is addressed with delicate placement of filler to define the rim and restore the Cupid ’s Bow. Next, filler is placed to create fullness and a soft, subtle pout (where your lipstick goes). This can be done tastefully for small lips and still look beautiful. Dr. Pearlman’s Cupid’s Bow lip technique has been featured in Vogue magazine, and continues to be a popular treatment for subtle yet sensuous lips. Best of all: no one can tell you’ve had anything “done.”
The results are immediate, and they will dissipate over time, typically they last 4-6 months.
At Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery, we believe that each patient is unique, requiring his or her own treatment that is different from anyone else’s. When you come in for a consultation to discuss something that you would like to change about your appearance, our first step is determining a proper treatment plan to meet the individual needs of your face. This is done with a comprehensive consultation, complete with listening to your concerns and truly understanding what your aesthetic goals are.
Don’t settle for thin, asymmetric lips or wrinkles around your mouth, plump your pout with Restylane Silk!
