Restylane® Silk, the newest filler from Galderma, is taking the skincare world by storm. Unlike other fillers, this non-animal-derived product uses a thin needle delivery system that boasts impressive clinical results.
With experience using Restylane® Silk in Houston, Dr. Layton could help you achieve the plump lips or radiant skin you desire. Get in touch with our dedicated team members to learn how you can begin your treatment plan.
Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler with distinct properties. In this case, “silk” refers to the product’s smooth texture and ability to be injected into the skin without damaging the surface.
Unlike other Restylane products, this treatment is ideal for refined areas such as the lips and around the mouth. Likewise, the product’s properties allow it to sink into targeted areas faster than traditional fillers.
At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Layton and our skilled team will take you through several treatment steps and guide you throughout the process.
First, you must schedule a consultation prior to your treatment. Dr. Layton will talk to you about your medical background and your treatment goals to ensure that Restylane® is the correct procedure for you. At the end of the consultation, our team will develop a treatment strategy that fits your needs before scheduling your first injection session.
You should also take several steps to prepare for a successful treatment by refraining from taking drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, or any other blood thinners, as they increase the chance of injection-related bruises. You must also avoid drinking and smoking 48 hours before your procedure.
Our well-trained team will welcome you when you arrive at our clinic and disinfect the skin around your injection area. Our technicians will then use a small amount of topical anesthetic to minimize pain before administering the injections. Depending on the dosage, the procedure will last between 15 minutes and an hour.
Restylane® Silk treatment requires minimal recovery time. For example, you may be able to leave our facility immediately after the treatment and resume your daily activities. However, avoiding excessive sun exposure and limiting your physical activity on the day of the procedure is crucial to a quick recovery. In most cases, natural-looking results will be visible within several days of your treatment.
It is common to experience side effects when you inject a foreign substance into your body, but they are typically mild and should go away quickly. Common side effects include:
These side effects usually go away within a few days. However, if these symptoms persist longer than a week, it is vital to contact Dr. Layton as soon as possible.
The longevity of Restylane® Silk may depend on the area of the body where you receive it. For example, an average amount on the lips may last six months, but a large injection into the skin may last up to a year. Likewise, the skin could metabolize the filler over time, leading to a loss of volume.
While the filler might fade over time, you can make the result last longer by practicing good skincare habits. Additionally, you can visit us to receive touch-ups every six months to a year. Dr. Layton will inject additional filler into the same area as your initial treatment to maintain your previous look.
Several benefits set Restylane® Silk apart from other fillers and lip treatments, including:
