Dr. Stewart of Skin Center explains the importance of Restylane’s recent FDA approval for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21

Fort Lauderdale, FL ( newsbox ) September 12, 2012 - While lip enhancement with implants continues to be an effective way to achieve full, pouty lips, many patients look to achieve a similar result less-invasively. And, according to Fort Lauderdale's Dr. Roger H. Stewart, Restylane, recently FDA approved for lip enhancement, may be the best solution we've seen yet.

"If patients have heard of Restylane before, it's likely for its use as a powerful wrinkle treatment," explains Dr. Stewart. "Now, the soft tissue filler is FDA approved for something equally exciting: lip enhancement." Known professionally as a "hyaluronic acid" filler, Restylane is one of the most popular ways to reduce the appearance of deep, persistent wrinkles, such as the nasolabial folds or "nose-to-mouth lines."

"In our society, there's nothing that says health, youth and beauty quite like full lips," explains Dr. Stewart. "And today, Restylane can achieve just that, safely and effectively." Administered as a series of tiny injections, Restylane is the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years," explains the company's website.

Asked to speculate on the growing popularity of Restylane for lip enhancement, Dr. Stewart offered a few suggestions. "For one, patients love that they can achieve ful

l, pouty lips less-invasively," explains Dr. Stewart. "What's more, although not a permanent solution, the results of Restylane will often last up to several months."

Concluding succinctly on the future of lip enhancement, Dr. Stewart offered this: "Restylane's recent FDA approval is a vote of confidence for the efficacy and safety of the product. We encourage all patients to explore this option before undergoing a surgical procedure."
