New Orleans plastic surgeons, Dr. Parker Velargo and Dr. Russell Hendrick of The New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, announce the addition of Restylane® Silk to their services.

New Orleans, LA — August 10, 2015

Dr. Parker Velargo and Dr. Russell Hendrick, plastic surgeons and co-founders of the New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, are proud to announce that their practice is now offering the newest dermal filler, Restylane® Silk. Restylane® Silk is the first and only filler approved by the FDA designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth. This new treatment fills an unmet need for women and men looking to enhance their lips and smooth wrinkles around the mouth.

Lips and Lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you age. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.

Restylane® Silk is made from a unique gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in your skin. In a clinical trial, 98% of participants reported a visible increase in fullness two weeks after treatment. Because of the gel’s small, smooth particles, as well as the ultrafine needle designed for precision, results should appear more subtle than with other forms of lip augmentation like implants. You should expect natural looking results, with refined volume and definition. In general, those who use Restylane® Silk can expect their results last roughly six months.

Drs. Hendrick and Velargo are proud to offer this new procedure to their New Orleans patients and welcome all to call their practice and schedule a consultation to determine if Restylane® Silk is right for you.
