Revive Lips & Cheeks with Restylane Silk and Juvederm Voluma
If you feel that your face is showing signs of aging, there's good news. Two new products, Restylane Silk and Juvederm Voluma can help revive your face by adding volume to sagging cheeks, deep lines and facial wrinkles.
Fat atrophy is the cause of cheeks that appear sunken or hollow. Juvederm Voluma is the only injectable gel approved by the FDA for immediate treatment of age-related loss of volume in the cheeks. The results can last up to two years and can make you look 5 years younger instantly. Voluma XC was designed specifically for use on areas of the face that require the gel to penetrate deeper and provide more volume, such as the cheeks and beneath the eyes. The injections will allow your cheeks to return to their original youthful, healthy contours.
When carefully administered by our clinical injectors, the results from Voluma are noticeable but not overwhelming. The injections are practically pain-free because the injectable filler contains the local anesthetic lidocaine.
Restylane Silk is also a clear gel made from hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar commonly found in skin. Silk was specifically formulated and approved by the FDA to take care of lines around the mouth and for adding volume to lips. It has smaller, smoother gel particles than other Restylane products and can be administered with a very fine needle that improves accuracy and gives soft, natural-looking results.
Silk's results in clinical studies have been quite favorable. Nearly 80 percent of patients who were treated with Restylane Silk experienced a 20 percent increase in lip volume after eight weeks. The added volume lasted for six months for 60 percent of those who underwent the treatment. Almost every patient involved in the study said they noticed additional fullness in their lips within 14 days of the first application. Nearly 80 percent still showed lip improvement half a year later.
