Today, you could point to Angelina Jolie. While she may get a little help with those perfect lips, they’re probably mostly hers. But who knows for sure? Regardless, they’re still probably the best lips in Hollywood, right?
And now your holiday party is coming up and you wish you could show off lips like Angelina. But as you’ve aged your lips have become thinner and they’ve developed some vertical lines.
Don’t fret — Dr. Lavey has a little something that can make your lips the talk of the party. Restylane Silk. This popular dermal filler is the first FDA-approved filler specifically for lip enhancement and for smoothing wrinkles around the mouth.
What is Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It’s called a natural filler because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body (and in most animal bodies) where its job is to bind with water molecules to help plump and hydrate the skin. Because it occurs naturally in the body, it also rarely causes a reaction when used as a filler.
There’s a reason Restylane Silk was the first FDA-approved filler for the lips. It is designed specifically for the lips and areas surrounding them. What’s different about it? It uses smaller, smoother particles suspended in its water-based gel. This allows it to be used for much more defined, localized results. This is important because as we age lines form on our lips, between our nose and mouth, and on the fringes of our lips. Dr. Lavey doesn’t use Restylane Silk simply to plump the lips, but he also uses it to address those vertical wrinkles and other wrinkles surrounding the mouth.
All I want for Christmas is Angelina’s lips
Like just about every part of the human body, the lips on each of our faces are unique. That being the case, there really isn’t a “standard” for lip beauty. But there is agreement that rounder, fuller lips are viewed as more attractive and appealing. And no one likes the lines are wrinkles that show themselves on and around our lips as we grow older.
Proportion is key with your lips. The Cupid’s Bow, the downward curve at the top middle of your lips, is the most attractive when it is well-defined and when both sides are equal. Overall side-to-side symmetry is important. The lips should be the most full in the center, tapering off at the corners. When viewed from the side, the upper lip should project slightly beyond the lower lip.
Dr. Lavey is experienced with Restylane Silk, delivering beautiful lips for his patients. So why go to the holiday bash with those thin wrinkled lips? Give them a little Silk! Call Dr. Lavey at 925-820-3633 and let’s go all Angelina on your lips!
