Treat Your Lips With Restylane Silk

Restylane Silk is a simple, easy-to-administer facial filler that can be used for targeted treatment of fine wrinkles and deeper facial lines. It is especially popular for lip enhancement because it produces a light, soft filling augmentation where other fillers can make lips look hard or unnatural. Restylane Silk is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can be performed in Dr. Schwarcz’s New York City or Scarsdale office and produces fast results that can last up to 6-9 months.

What Is Restylane Silk?

Restylane Silk is composed mostly of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound in the body. As such, it should have no major side effects when injected into the body and is reabsorbed normally as it breaks down over time. Restylane Silk also contains lidocaine, a pain-killing compound that allows the injections to be done quickly and with minimal discomfort.

How Do Treatments Work?

Restylane Silk is applied by a trained cosmetic surgeon during one or two visits over the course of two weeks. The injections are tailored to each specific patient’s skin type and color and areas of need. Your doctor will consult with you before the treatments to explain what will be involved and what sort of results you will be able to expect.

A single treatment usually takes a few minutes. The doctor uses a very thin needle to inject the facial filler beneath the epidermis into the connective tissue, which is where lines and wrinkles form. The filler absorbs excess water and provides extra padding beneath the skin to stretch out the wrinkles. It will take 2-3 days after the injections for the Restylane Silk to achieve maximum fullness so you can see the best skin augmentation.

Little or no recovery time is necessary, although there maybe some slight bruising or swelling that should heal quickly.
