What is Restylane Silk®?
Restylane Silk® is a dermal filler treatment that has been approved by the FDA to provide “subtle” volume enhancement in such areas as the lips. We also use Silk® under the eyes (tear troughs) and in lateral forehead lines.
How does Restylane Silk® work?
Restylane Silk®, like the other products in the Restylane® family, is a hyaluronic acid-based filler. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that our bodies produce naturally and is a polysaccharide that augments volume and hydration in the skin while also lubricating the joints. Hyaluronic acid can absorb and hold 1,000 times its own weight in water. It is this ability to retain moisture that contributes to plump, youthful-looking skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane Silk®, Restylane Lyft®, and Juvederm®, restore lost volume in the facial region, smoothing out wrinkles and lifting sagging skin.
How does Restylane Silk® differ from other dermal filler treatments?
The hyaluronic acid particles used in the Restylane Silk® formulation are smaller in size than those used in other fillers, making this treatment more suitable for filling in such precise areas as the vertical smoker’s lines that develop around the lip border, horizontal forehead lines, and delicate tissue underneath the eyes.
What can I expect from Restylane Silk® injections?
Restylane Silk® is administered using a fine needle or a micro-cannula, or tube-like surgical instrument, which does not cut blood vessels, reducing bruising and swelling and minimizing discomfort to the patient. Restylane Silk® also contains lidocaine, a gentle anesthetic agent, to minimize discomfort during treatment.
How should I prepare for Restylane Silk® injections?
No real preparation is required for Restylane Silk® injections. Prior to treatment, your medical history will be assessed, and factors such as any other injections you may have received recently or any medications you may be taking will be taken into consideration. You may need to postpone Restylane® treatments if you have any infection or inflammatory or cystic acne until the condition clears up. Prior to the treatment, please inform us if you are on blood thinning medication or supplements or if you have a history of lip herpes.
How much are Restylane Silk® injections In Melbourne?
Restylane Silk® treatments vary in price according to the number of treatment areas and the amount of product used. Cost estimates range from $500-$1000.
