A Restylane Silk Filler Specialist

Restylane Silk is a revolutionary treatment that can aid in the war against aging. Approved by the FDA, this treatment is part of the Restylane product line that has been giving people great results since 2014. Lidocaine has been added to Restylane Silk so that patients can enjoy greater comfort while receiving treatment.

Oculoplastic cosmetic surgeon Dr. Schwarcz has offices in Scarsdale and New York City which offer these safe and effective nonsurgical facial fillers to interested patients. Many people who undergo treatment notice positive changes quickly.

How Restylane Silk Works

With the use of minimally painful injections, board-certified oculoplastic cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwarcz restores facial volume that have been lost due to aging. This offers a less-invasive alternative to surgery and provides the same lifting results. Restylane Silk is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that is formulated with long sugar chains that mimic what the skin produces naturally. This restylane silk filler is able to enhance the lips and smoothen out lines around the mouth more effectively. Once the filler has been injected, it can be molded easily to create the perfect shape and volume levels.

To prepare for injections, a numbing cream may be applied to a patient’s skin to lessen any pain or discomfort. An alcohol swab is used to disinfect the treatment areas before a sterilized needle makes the injections.

Ideal Candidates for Restylane Silk

This treatment can benefit men and women of various ages and lifestyles who want to have fuller lips and eliminate some of their facial lines and wrinkles. Restylane Silk is also ideal for patients who cannot or do not wish to undergo surgical procedures. Patients should be at least 22 years of age before receiving injections. Anyone who is taking blood thinners, has a bleeding disorder or is allergic to lidocaine should not try this therapy.
