What is Restylane Silk? 

Maybe you’ve heard about Restylane Silk and aren’t sure what it is. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is here to help. Learn if this is a potential answer for your esthetic needs. Have you noticed your lips aren’t looking as lush and kissable as when you were younger? Maybe little lines have become more noticeable above your lips. Unfortunately, as we age, the skin around our lips and eyes tends to wrinkle first.

Restylane Silk is an FDA approved lip injection that helps augment your lip shape and smooth the lines over your lips which are called your perioral lines.

One of our registered nurses uses an ultra-fine needle to plump your lips with the filler. The filler is made with hyaluronic acid which has been manipulated so the micro particles last longer in your body than natural hyaluronic acid that your body produces.

When it comes to the lip injections and Restylane Silk, you’ll need to see a licensed practitioner. One of the nice things about this formula is that it includes a bit of Lidocaine, which means it will help with the discomfort or sting due to the injections.

As they inject the gel-like product, they may also gently massage the area to create a more even distribution which will give your lips a more natural look. Based on a clinical study, 98% of patients saw a difference within 2 weeks.

For about 60% of the people studied during a clinical research trial, almost 60% saw results that lasted up to 6 months, though this is a procedure you’ll need to duplicate if you want to continue with fuller lips.

Some contraindications to be aware of: If you’re allergic to Lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make hyaluronic acid, prone to bleeding, or have a bleeding disorder you shouldn’t use this product.

So, if you’ve been feeling less than stellar in your appearance, and the thinner look of your lips is bothering you, there is a solution. It’s natural. It happens to most of us because of aging. And those pesky perioral lines that are directly above your lips give your age away as quickly as crow’s feet. It’s frustrating, but at least there’s a simple solution now, a solution that can give you a more youthful look.

With Restylane Silk, you can reshape and refill your lips with results that last up to six months. Knowing the product is FDA approved offers peace of mind as well.

What bothers you the most about getting older? Is it the gray hair sprouting up you’re constantly in a battle to color, the lines around your eyes, or your thinning lips? Thanks to modern science and technology, we can combat most of these things with ease, so don’t let something bother you if you want a quick fix. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to feel your best.

Wrinkles Got You Down? Botox Vs. Dysport

What’s the difference between Botox and Dysport? What do you need to know if you’re considering either of these options to tackle your aging concerns? Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is here to educate you on two awesome choices.

There’s no easy way to say it, but the fine lines and creases we develop as we age are only going to become more noticeable. It’s a fact. They’re there and not going away anytime soon. Sure, you try to act like they don’t bother you, but spending more time staring at them in the mirror isn’t the solution. Look, if you really want to erase them, why not try a temporary solution and see if you like the results. That’s where Botox Cosmetic and Dysport come in. They aren’t life changing, but they can help you love what you see in the mirror once again.

These injected formulas allow you to turn back the clock if even for a couple months to see if this is something you want to keep using. There’s nothing that says you need to continue, but why not reward yourself and give it a try.

Okay, so, what do you need to know when it comes to Botox and Dysport, and which should you try?

Both of these products use the same type of ingredient and are injectables. They are often used for muscle spasms to treat medical issues, but they’ve been found to help with the aging process and wrinkles as well. Bonus!

Now, within these two different branded products are proteins. The comparison between them have to do with the specific proteins and how many of them there are in the formulas. Another thing to consider is that while Dysport may show you results sooner than Botox, it doesn’t last quite as long as Botox does.

While these are not fillers to help change the shape of the lines on your face, what they do is smooth the muscle beneath the skin, which gives it a more uniform appearance. This causes the wrinkles to appear smoother, and less noticeable.

Dysport is used for the lines and wrinkles that form between your eyebrows. It is only approved to be used in this area. Botox however can be used in the same location, plus tackle your crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.

Another thing to note is the Botox may take longer to see the results, up to a month’s time, though the results last up to six months. Dysport will show results within a week’s time in some cases, but only lasts 3-4 months. If you’re looking for a quicker fix, Dysport might be a good option when this area bothers you. Otherwise, Botox can treat multiple areas and lasts longer. Seems like a win, but only you can truly decide.

Glutathione Therapy: What is Glutathione and How Does it Make my Skin Look Better? 

Glutathione is both an antioxidant and protein. Here’s an interesting fact—Glutathione acts as a sponge which draws out free radicals. It also teams up with other vitamins in the body, forcing them to work harder. The best news? Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is your local hook-up for Glutathione therapy.

Did you know that your body produces this peptide? There’s a way to increase the efficiency and make a bigger impact. Glutathione therapy is one way to add more of this incredible peptide to your body. There are both injections and IV therapy available, which lets your body readily absorb more of the crucial protein and antioxidant.

The healthful benefits include detoxifying your body and removing scavenger free radicals. This protects your skin from damaging elements. You end up with improved immune function while reducing inflammation in your body. As for your skin, it gets brighter, clearer, and healthier looking. Due to the peptide nature of this protein, it has anti-aging benefits as well.

Time has changed the environment and stressors around us. We’re constantly bombarded with pollution, free radicals which are damaging to your cells, and constant day to day stress. What that means is that while your body produces Glutathione, it doesn’t produce nearly enough to keep up with the non-stop demands placed on your body.

By getting Glutathione therapy, you can help coerce your body back into better health. The enzyme responses of Glutathione mean that your skin becomes brighter, helps reduce scarring, and also can reduce dark spots. Because of the anti-aging benefits and how it helps enhance Vitamin C, that means it addresses wrinkles, puffiness, fine lines and even helps prevent acne.

Glutathione also accelerates the benefits of Coenzyme Q10 which is another anti-aging booster. This therapy can be used as injections or IV therapy. You may be wondering why you can’t just simply take supplements to get the same response. Unfortunately, due to how it’s digested, you’d lose the nutrient value, as it doesn’t absorb properly. Generally, the injections are done as muscular injections, while the IV therapy is infused through a standard IV procedure.

When you’re tackling the frustrations of getting older and the inevitable fine lines that occur, there are things you can do. In this instance, by injecting a naturally occurring ingredient you can rejuvenate your skin, while detoxifying your body by using the benefits of the amazing Glutathione therapy. This super peptide is one antioxidant that will give you a nice boost when it comes to a healthier appearance.

When you come to Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa for Glutathione injections, or any kind of IV therapy, you’ll be in the hands of an actual registered nurse. They’ll be able to answer any questions you might have and you can trust the treatment is being done by a seasoned professional.

Lip Injections for Men: A Guide to Plump, Puffy Lips

When we think of lip injections, it’s easy to picture the Kardashians or other celebrities using the filler to plump their lips. Women are the largest client base when it comes to getting lip fillers. But, what about guys? Is this service for men as well? Or does the thought of getting a needle to the face freak you out? Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is here help fella’s get the lips of their dreams.

As we get older, our natural elasticity in our skin fades, and the fat stores that create fullness in our faces diminishes. This leaves us often looking sullen, less youthful, and with thin lips.

While it’s not considered masculine to want fuller, plump lips, some men have trouble accepting the changes in appearance from the aging process. The change comes on gradually, but once you notice it, it’s hard to ignore, and nature won’t bring that youthful exuberance back.

So, if you’re a guy aching for plump, puffy, kissable lips, here’s what you need to know about lip injections for men.

Yep. A needle to your face. Ready for the juicy details?

First, what you need to understand is that dermal fillers and lip injections offer a temporary solution. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. It means that you can try it and see if you like the results. If you don’t, eventually, your lips will go back to their thinner existence. If you do, then you’ll need to continue getting injections to keep the results.

There are two different kinds of lip fillers—synthetic and natural fillers. Both create a fuller look after being injected to the dermal area of your skin. The hyaluronic acid will eventually absorb, leaving you needing another boost of filler. You may also see this referred to as lip augmentation.

If you choose to get the lip injections, your results generally last about 6 months, so be sure you’re comfortable making this change. It’s not going away in a week’s time. While hyaluronic acid is typically the filler of choice, there is another option where fat is removed from one area of your body, and then is used as filler for your lips. Most people opt for the simple lip fillers with hyaluronic acid due to the quickness and ease of the procedure.

The doctor will dot or mark the area to be corrected, and then insert thin needles into your skin to apply the filler. Think of it as similar to the experience of getting Novocain at the dentist’s office. After the procedure, ice can help with the discomfort. You’ll see the results immediately, so make sure you go with a reputable doctor who has a solid reputation and good reviews.

Ready for the lips of your dreams? Try lip injections for men. Give Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa a call and set up an absolutely free consultation (480) 912-5325.
