- 14 Restylane Silk Frequently Asked Questions
Reclaim your youth with Restylane Silk treatments.
The effects of aging take a significant toll on our skin. Mild wrinkles and lines begin to form as the volume in our skin starts to dissipate. Through cosmetic treatments, we can correct the unwanted signs of aging and attain a soft, youthful look.
“I have had many fillers from many different Healthcare Providers, but Dr. Chasin is by far, THE BEST!!!! He is EXCELLENT! He is very patent and works like an artist!!!!! I would not go to anyone else after my first visit with him!!!”
What is Restylane Silk?
Restylane Silk is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can be used to softens wrinkles around the face, adds volume to create better facial contour, treat under the eyes, and can create better lip symmetry. Wrinkles and volume loss can be due to several different factors such as sun exposure, smoking, or weakened facial muscles. This gel formula is used to correct these problems and revitalize your appearance.
This particular Restylane injectable uses smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than the other products for a more delicate enhancement. Hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our bodies, promotes collagen production and retains moisture in the skin. This substantial part of our skin’s structure is responsible for rejuvenating our skin and maintaining a youthful aesthetic. However, hyaluronic acid tends to degenerate over time, resulting in a loss of skin elasticity. Replenishing hyaluronic acid with Restylane Silk injections can soften unwanted lines and wrinkles around the face, add youthful volume, and create a more revitalized appearance.
How Does Restylane Silk Work?
Restylane Silk works by replenishing depleted hyaluronic acid levels and restoring volume throughout certain areas of the face to soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This injectable can also be placed into the lips to add volume and shape. This particular filler should be injected into the areas of concern to provide a more youthful appearance. The smooth texture of the gel, due to the small particles of hyaluronic acid, provides more natural results than some of the other dermal fillers in the market today. Additionally, horizontal lines on the forehead can also be diminished with Restylane Silk through this technique.
Restylane Silk has a smoother texture than the other Restylane fillers. As a result of this, it is best used to treat less severe skin concerns, but with very soft, natural results. In particular, this injectable can be used to:
- Smooth the lines surrounding the lips
- Add volume to lips for cosmetic enhancement
- Soften forehead lines
- Under the eyes
- Any fine lines
We sometimes recommend combining these injections with Botox for overall facial rejuvenation. Depending on your concerns, your cosmetic physician can make the best recommendation for your desired results.
BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS
About The Treatment
For your Restylane Silk treatment, an ultra-fine needle or cannula will be inserted into the skin or lips, depending on your aesthetic goals. The treatment, in its entirety, lasts 15-30 minutes. We make use of cannulas whenever possible, as this reduces the most serious risks of complication, as well as the risk of swelling and bruising. This gel solution will then be injected in varying small amounts throughout the treatment area for a natural-looking result. This injection process will be repeated until your desired look has been achieved.
The treatment is quick and can be done in the middle of running errands or on a lunch hour, lasting about 25 minutes. Because there is no downtime required for this treatment, you will be able to return to your daily routine immediately after your appointment.
What Does It Feel Like?
Because all Restylane products contain a component called lidocaine, which is a type of local anesthetic, the injection sites will be numbed by the Restylane Silk gel. To help keep patients comfortable from the start, we do offer a topical anesthetic to numb the skin before treatment. Patients who have undergone this treatment previously have reported that any discomfort that is felt is comfortable.
Do I Need Anesthesia?
Anesthesia is not necessary. As stated above, Restylane Silk contains a form of a local anesthetic called lidocaine, but you may want additional numbing of the area for added comfort. This is why we offer several different local anesthetics for our patients to choose from. We can apply a topical anesthetic or nerve blocks, which are numbing injections that are done directly into nerve bundles to ensure the patient feels absolutely nothing. Nerve blocks are often the preferred type of anesthetic used by many of our doctors for lip injections.
The cost of dermal fillers starts at $650. We offer discounted prices when you purchase more than a single syringe during the same treatment. You can boost your savings by participating in our Rewards Plus program. Our rewards program can be discussed further during the consultation. Purchases over $1,000 can be financed. To receive your personalized quote, we ask that you contact our office and request a consultation with one of our expert injectors today!
After your treatment, you may experience redness of the skin and minimal swelling, but this should subside within a few hours. We take preliminary steps to avoid bruising from occurring by using accuvein and cannulas. In the case that bruising does develop, we offer our patients free laser treatment to break down the bruise and speed up the healing process to minimize any downtime that has resulted from the bruising. We recommend that patients minimize the risk of bruising by avoiding intense activities that raise your blood pressure for at least 12 hours after the injections. Exercising does not pose any health risk, therefore, it is not required to refrain from any form of activities. You should be careful not to rub or massage the treated area for at least one day after the treatment, but lighting touching the area, such as washing your face, is acceptable.
There is no downtime necessary after your Restylane Silk injections, so you are free to leave our office following the procedure and continue your daily routine without missing a beat. The results for Restylane Silk injections can be seen immediately, but the outcomes will become visible in a few days after the swelling and bruising have subsided.
How Many Restylane Treatments Will I Need?
One treatment is all it takes to receive the benefits of Restylane Silk. After the injections, you will notice the smooth, even surface of your skin. The lines and wrinkles surrounding the mouth and nose will be significantly reduced. You should be aware that the results of this treatment are not permanent, although long-lasting. You will need to return for follow-up treatments to maintain the achieved results.
How Long Does It Last?
Restylane Silk can last anywhere from six to nine months depending on the area in which it is being used. 77% of Silk patients reported still seeing results at 6 months.1.
If the Restylane Silk injections are placed in an area where there is constant facial movement, such as the lips or forehead, the gel tends to break down faster than when injected into fine lines and wrinkles. During your initial consultation, one of our expert injectors will be able to provide more information about the longevity of your Restylane Silk injections. This particular formula is one of the longest-lasting lip filler on the market today.
Men and women can both be candidates for Restylane Silk treatments. If you are looking to address mild wrinkles and lines on the face or looking to enhance the size of your lips, you may be a good candidate to receive this injectable treatment. To receive Restylane Silk, you should not have any underlying skin conditions or allergies to any of its ingredients, as it can negatively impact the effectiveness of this injectable. To undergo this treatment, we ask that you are in good health and maintain realistic expectations for the results because it will not provide the same dramatic results as a more invasive procedure. Injections are also temporary. You should not receive Restylane Silk treatments or any other injectable anti-aging treatment if you are pregnant or nursing.
Depending on your particular case, you may benefit from additional procedures for a more comprehensive age-defying treatment. During the free consultation, you can discuss with the physician about your options and which treatment would be best for you. The most commonly chosen treatments that are combined with Restylane Silk include:
Botox is a wrinkle-relaxer that reduces facial wrinkles and lines. Through constant muscle movements made when making facial expressions, the overlying skin begins to crease and become lax, causing fine lines to form. This treatment can be combined with Restylane Silk to reduce lines, creases, and folds on the entire face for an overall revitalized look.
We only offer FDA-approved dermal fillers.During your initial consultation, your filler options can be discussed in greater detail to find a treatment that will achieve your desired results.
