Restylane Silk – The Latest Advance

Restylane Silk is by far the most contemporary advance in the field of dermal fillers. This is a new lip filler that is fully FDA approved. As opposed to its former self – Restylane Silk comes with a particularly beneficial increase in lidocaine with 0.3%. While it may seem insignificant, the addition means that all sorts of discomfort and pain are thoroughly reduced if not entirely eliminated.

How is Restylane SILK Administered?

The lip augmentation substance is administered in the form of an injection. Even though it may sound a bit scary, the lidocaine makes the injection much more comfortable. Now, the substance is made out of hyaluronic acid, and this is the main ingredient in the Restylane filler. This type of acid is found in your body, and it’s responsible for the elasticity and smoothness of your skin.

It goes without saying that hyaluronic acid is abundant during the early ages of your life. This is the main reason for which younger people have way more firm, elastic and smoother skin. However, as your age progressive, your body reduces the production of the acid, and this has a direct impact on your appearance. This is when lip augmentation procedures are available to provide you with a helping hand.

Only the most highly skilled plastic surgeons with an aesthetic medicine background should inject your facial fillers. If are looking for Restylane Silk to restore your youthful appearance and get smoother skin, fuller, plump, more natural looking lips contact SB Aesthetics at (805) 318-3280 to schedule a consultation today!

How Does Restylane Silk Work?

As the doctor injects the substance into your lip, the hyaluronic acid is introduced as a key agent in the maintenance of the smoothness as well as the elasticity of the tissue. It is going to restore the volume that is lost over the time as you age. It’s injected directly into the fine lines as well as into the wrinkles in order to quickly.

How Long Does Restylane Last?

The results are different, and the effects are individual for each patient. However, the maximum time that you can expect the Restylane filler to last is about a year. Considering how quick and convenient the procedure is, you can easily undergo it every year.

How Much Do Lip Injections Cost?

This is going to depend on the needs of every patient. With this in mind, Dr. Sheffield is going to determine the amount of hyaluronic acid gel that is needed to ensure the most effective results. This is going to comprise the total cost of the procedure. In any case, it’s more cost effective than having to undergo an invasive cosmetic procedure – that’s for sure.

As you can see, there are quite a lot of benefits to using this particular lip augmentation method. The good thing is that there are absolutely no side effects apart from the minor redness and swelling which is a result of the introduction of the hyaluronic acid gel into your body. These are usually going to disappear within a few hours at most. This is why Restylane SILK is amongst the most preferred fillers for face and one that is used quite commonly by many.
