How Restylane Silk Works
The active ingredient in Restylane Silk is hyaluronic acid, a compound that is naturally created in your skin. As you age, your body's ability to make hyaluronic acid deteriorates, and the end result is that your skin loses much of its elasticity and makes wrinkles much more pronounced. By injecting hyaluronic acid into the nasolabial folds and other lines that exist between your nose and lips, Restylane Silk allows you to restore some of your skin's previous elasticity.
Restylane Silk offers several advantages for patients:
- It feels natural to the touch
- It integrates with preexisting skin tissue
- It gently fills wrinkles and lines in the face
- It allows you to maintain normal facial expressions
- It leads to smooth, flexible skin
To ensure the best results, make sure you get your Restylane Silk applied by a professional facial surgeon who is familiar with the structure of the skin. How you look after dermal fillers often comes down to the skill of the person applying them, so it's always a good idea to get yours done by a professional.
Is Restylane Silk Right for Me?
If you are dissatisfied with the lines on your face, especially lines around your nose and mouth, Restylane Silk may be right for you. It's an especially good option if you don't want to go through the cost and time required for more transformative facial surgery. Before making a final decision, however, you should consult with one of our Philadelphia facial surgeons and make sure this is the best choice for you.
Before undergoing the procedure, let your doctor know if:
- You have a history of multiple severe allergies
- You are pregnant, breastfeeding, or under 21 years of age
- You are taking medications that affect blood clotting
- You have a recurring skin condition
- You currently have an infection
- You are taking drugs that affect your immune system
