Restylane® Now FDA-Approved for Lip Enhancement
Here at Palos Verdes Plastic Surgery Medical Center, Dr. Christine Petti utilizes a variety of injectable fillers to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Restylane® has proven to be one of the best, offering natural-looking facial rejuvenation with long-lasting results. Now, Restylane® can work its magic for lip enhancement, adding volume to the lips for a more youthful, sensual appearance. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recently approved Restylane® for use in lip augmentation procedures in patients age 21 and older. This is an exciting development for our patients, and Dr. Petti is happy to add this effective dermal filler to the list of lip enhancement options at Aesthetic Accents.
FDA-approved since 2003 to treat moderate-to-severe wrinkles along the face, Restylane® can now be used to plump up the lips, which can have a positive effect on your overall facial appearance. Restylane® is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the human body, and typically does not require an allergy test before treatment. During the FDA’s clinical trials to study Restylane’s® effect on the upper and lower lips, the organization found that the treatment was highly effective for lip augmentation with results that lasted up to six months!
Restylane® can be a great way to add volume and new contour to the lips, and the treatment can be performed in less than 30 minutes with little to no downtime necessary after the procedure.
