Restylane Silk® is a soft tissue filler that has been used successfully for numerous years in both Europe and Canada. The product has recently added lidocaine to ensure the treatment is comfortable and pain free. One of the first signs of aging is a loss of volume in the face. The severity is dependent on each individual. Many notice they have lost definition in their cheekbones first. In the past, the only effective way to lift the soft tissues and tighten the skin was with surgery. This has now been made possible with Restylane Silk® without the downtime and pain so commonly associated with surgery.
The treatment provides a similar lift by restoring volume and providing the appearance of a more youthful and natural face. The filler has a hyaluronic base constructed using long chains of sugars. This type of chain is completely natural to your skin. The formulation is unique and designed for a softer consistency. This means lines are filled but the look is more natural. The product can be shaped and molded according to the preferences of the individual once it has been injected because it is a hyaluronic filler.
The Benefits of Restylane Silk®
This is a cosmetic dermal filler specifically formulated for the fine lines surrounding your mouth and your lips. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally occurring in your body. This is what provides your skin with both elasticity and fullness. As time passes, your natural hyaluronic acid is lost. The injections of Restylane Silk® fill in the folds, lines and wrinkles caused by the aging process. The smoothness of the gel enables the filler to restore the symmetry and natural definition to the area surrounding your mouth. One of the key benefits is the consistency enables small wrinkles and lines to be filled without the bulk.
This product has the same manufacturer as Restylane®. Although they are both capable of smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance, there is an important difference between the two. Restylane Silk® contains lidocaine to help ensure the procedure is comfortable. The injection is given to help smooth, minimize and fill both wrinkles and fine lines. In most cases, the improvement becomes obvious within one or two days after the treatment. Using a high quality moisturizer is highly recommended after the procedure to help prevent any subsequent dryness. The results of the treatment generally last for about six months. Depending on the individual, this period of time may be longer or shorter.
