Restylane Silk in Los Angeles, CA
The vertical lines around the lips can make us look older and unpleasant. At Rejuva Medical Aesthetics, Kian Karimi, MD, FACS, and Chester Griffiths, MD, FACS, double board-certified plastic surgeons, treat people living in and around Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Brentwood, CA, with Restylane® Silk to diminish smoker’s lines and plump and smooth the lips.
What is Restylane® Silk?
The skin on and around the lips is very delicate which makes it prone to develop visible lines and wrinkles. For those with thin lips, these imperfections are even more noticeable. With Restylane® Silk, softer lips are restored, and the vertical lines are greatly diminished leaving the smoother skin.
Restylane® Silk uses hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin to bind to the tissue and attract and hold moisture. Hyaluronic acid also keeps cells hydrated so to help them regenerate.
Benefits of Restylane® Silk
In addition to naturally adding volume to the lips, some of the benefits that Restylane® Silk offers include:
- Little to no discomfort
- Very small chance of adverse reaction
- No downtime or recovery
- Quick, in-office treatment
- Long lasting
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk contains hyaluronic acid, which is also naturally present in the body, so most skin types tolerate the filler very well. It is developed specifically to treat the lips and the areas around them so that they look smooth and have more volume. Those that think their lips are too thin or notice they have vertical lines around their lips may be an ideal candidate for Restylane® Silk.
What Do I Do to Prepare for Restylane® Silk Treatments?
There is no preparation for Restylane® Silk injections. If possible, we suggest that you avoid smoking as well as medications and supplements that thin the blood as they negatively affect the area following treatments.
What Happens During My Restylane® Silk Treatment?
Using a very fine needle, Restylane® Silk is injected into the areas on and around the lips. Because the formulation contains small particles of active ingredients, it is well tolerated in delicate areas where imperfections are more noticeable. As the injections are made, the lips and surrounding areas are massaged to distribute the filler. The improvement is immediate. Once the injections are made, an ice pack is applied to minimize swelling.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Restylane® Silk Injections?
The treatment time takes no more than an hour to complete making it perfect to have during lunch hour or anytime during your day when it’s convenient.
What to Expect After Restylane® Silk Injections
Immediately following the treatment, there may be very slight swelling and redness at the injection site, but it is not severe enough to stay home. The lips may feel slightly tender and even a little sore for a few days, but that is minimal. Most patients return to their normal daily activities following their treatments.
When Will I See the Results?
You will see immediate improvement in your lips. This continues to improve over time and typically lasts for six months to a year.
How Much Does Restylane® Silk Cost in Los Angeles?
Each patient follows a different plan that achieves an individual goal. Because of this, the cost varies based on how many injections are needed and whether other treatments are performed in conjunction with Restylane® Silk injections. During your consultation, we give you a total cost of treatment along with our payment and financing options including cash, personal check, credit card and financing through CareCredit®.
