Restylane® Silk in Philadelphia, PA

Located in Glen Mills, Media and Chester, Providence Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery offers Restylane® Silk to the residents of Philadelphia and the surrounding areas of Pennsylvania desiring skin rejuvenation.

What Is Restylane® Silk?

Restylane® Silk is an injectable gel that was just approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in June 2014 for lip augmentation and filling in fine lip lines. Restylane® Silk uses a tiny particle gel formula with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that facilitates cell repair and structure, to stimulate your body’s own healing processes. This refreshes and rejuvenates your skin, adding volume and tone for a soft, natural look. In addition, the included lidocaine minimizes discomfort during the injection.

Benefits of Restylane® Silk

Restylane® Silk will plump up your lips, reduce wrinkles, and soften vertical lines above the lips for up to six months after treatment. This can give you a fuller smile and a more youthful appearance, leading to enhanced self-image and self-confidence.

How Are Restylane® Silk Injections Administered?

First, the treatment area will be cleansed and prepped. The Restylane® Silk gel will be inserted gently through an ultra-fine needle. You will notice a difference immediately. The treatment session takes less than an hour, and you may return to your normal routine afterward.

Preparing for Your Restylane® Silk Injection

The day of the procedure, do not take aspirin, St John’s wort, or vitamin E supplements. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), such as Advil or Aleve, should also be avoided. This will help minimize bleeding and bruising at the injection site.

Recovery after Restylane® Silk Injection

There is virtually no downtime after the injection. After treatment, avoid exposure to intense heat, including sunbathing or sun lamps. You might notice swelling, pain, redness, bruising, or tenderness; these should fade away over the next couple days. In the meantime, a cold compress can provide relief. Do not take aspirin, NSAIDs, St. John’s wort, or vitamin E for the first week after treatment; these can exacerbate bruising or bleeding.

How Much Does Restylane® Silk Cost?

The cost of your Restylane® Silk treatment will vary depending on the extent of your treatment goals and on your specific case. You can refer to our patient financing page for more details.

Is Restylane® Silk Right for Me?

Restylane® Silk injectable gel can restore lip fullness and reduce or eliminate wrinkles in the mouth area, making it ideal for those who wish for non-permanent enhancements to their facial appearance.
