Restylane® Silk Boca Raton
What Is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is a dermal filler that has recently received clearance by the FDA for use in the United States, making it the only FDA-approved filler designed specifically for the lips and surrounding lines. Dr. Janet Allenby was chosen as one of Galderma’s Elite Injectors for Restylane® Silk, meaning she is one of few approved injectors. Its name may sound familiar because Restylane®, a similar filler, was approved in 2005 for the treatment of wrinkles and smile lines. Restylane® Silk, can be used for smoothing out wrinkles around the mouth and plumping up the lips.
Restylane® Silk, just like Restylane®, is made up of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, but the substance begins to decrease naturally due to age. A study that was performed prior to the approval of the product by the FDA showed that 98 percent of participants reported fuller lips two weeks after getting Restylane® Silk treatments. It was also reported that the results of the procedure lasted for a minimum of six months. Treatment time for a Restylane® Silk procedure can last 15-30 minutes.
Why Should I Choose Restylane® Silk?
One of the benefits of Restylane® Silk is that it does not come from animal-based materials. As a result, it is unnecessary to test for allergies prior to a treatment. However, the procedure is not necessarily appropriate for everyone. Individuals who have a history of hypersensitivity to anesthetics such as lidocaine or similar products should avoid it, as should those with a history of a bleeding disorder.
It is recommended that anyone who gets a Restylane® Silk treatment avoid large doses of Vitamin E supplements, St. John’s Wort, aspirin, ibuprofen and other non-steroid anti-inflammatory medications because they can increase the risk for bleeding.
