Stacking Cosmoplast and Restylane for Fuller Lips

A fairly new technique that is showing good results for plumper, full lips is to use a combination of fillers, Cosmoplast and Restylane. To administer this, I use an oral local nerve block akin to a dental numbing block a few minutes prior to injecting a patient's lips. Restylane is used first in the deeper layers of the skin to provide the plump, and then Cosmoplast injections helps to smooth out and fill in fine lines creating a younger looking smile. See Restylane and Cosmoplast on my web site.
