As such, Dr. Swift offers Restylane® Silk treatments to the residents of New York and the surrounding Tri-State area seeking skin rejuvenation.
What is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is an injectable filler used to plump lips or to eliminate lines appearing around the mouth or between the nose and mouth, such as “smoker’s lines,” circles under the eyes, and for acne scarring and cheek depressions. Unlike Restylane®, Restylane® Silk contains lidocaine, an anesthetic designed to take the sting out of the shot and make the procedure more comfortable. Restylane® Silk is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is supplied naturally in the body but tends to diminish as we age.
Benefits of Restylane® Silk
Restylane® Silk fills out lines and wrinkles and plumps lips, providing the following benefits:
The results are easier to control because Dr. Swift can control the placement of the injection to ensure the desired effect.
If you’re not sure how much filler you need or want, treatments can be given gradually over time until you decide the right amount of plumpness you want for your lips and other areas.
Since hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, there are fewer side effect or allergic reactions. However, patients with an allergy to lidocaine should discuss this treatment with their family doctor before using Restylane® Silk.
In clinical studies, Restylane® Silk has proven to produce results that last for at least six months. Results do not last forever, however.
How is Restylane® Silk Performed?
Restylane® Silk is injected just under the skin into the areas where a plumping effect is desired. Since it contains lidocaine, an anesthetic designed to reduce discomfort at the site of injection, no anesthesia is necessary, but if you’re concerned about the potential for discomfort, a topical application can be used on the site as well. Treatments take less than an hour, depending on the number of sites to be filled, and can sometimes be done over a lunch hour from work.
Restylane® Silk Recovery
Restylane® Silk may cause minor lip swelling, bruising and discomfort. The best way to minimize these concerns is to avoid certain supplements, aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen before treatment, as these may increase the chances of bleeding. Your physician will give you a list of what to avoid in the days leading up to your injection. There is no recovery period needed from a Restylane® Silk treatment, and you can rejoin your normal activities, work, or school immediately afterward. You should begin to see results within two weeks of treatment.
How Much Does Restylane® Silk Cost?
Costs associated with Restylane® Silk are unique for each individual and are determined by the area that needs injectable filler. Dr. Swift and his professional staff will discuss your options and expectations and the costs associated with Restylane® Silk injections. Financing for treatments is also available through Alphaeon Healthcare Lending.
