Restylane Silk is the newest dermal filler on the market, aimed at lip augmentation as well as treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. Restylane Silk is from the makers of Restylane, and the formula is almost the same save for a key difference – Restylane Silk is formulated with the addition of lidocaine, a topical anesthetic. The addition of lidocaine helps to make the injection process as comfortable as possible for the patient. Restylane Silk is beloved by Washington, D.C. patients for its ability to softly add volume.
Restylane Silk Treatment
Restylane Silk can do wonders for the lips. Lip augmentation is one of the most popular and effective uses of this particular filler. Lip augmentation is extremely popular nowadays, as young women want to have large, plump lips and older women want to plump up their thinning lips. As we age, the body produces less collagen, which causes loss of volume as well as wrinkles in the face and other areas of the body. The lips also lose their volume and begin to thin. Thinning lips can be a sign of age, one that is easily reversed with a Restylane Silk treatment.
In addition to plumping the lips, Restylane Silk can also help to shape lips into a more pleasing form, and it can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, it can be used in the tear trough area to reduce the appearance of dark circles or bags under the eyes.
A board-certified, experienced dermatologist such as Dr. Isaac should always administer Restylane Silk. Dr. Isaac knows exactly where to place the injections to achieve the desired results, and she can help to minimize the risk of swelling or bruising at the injection site. Restylane Silk, along with all dermal fillers, requires a deft, experienced touch. If the person doing the injecting doesn’t know where to place the injections, the results could be disastrous!
