Restylane® Silk in Philadelphia, PA
Not only can a lack of hyaluronic acid cause signs of aging on your face, but it may also result in wrinkled lips and a loss in volume. Restylane® Silk can be a viable solution to this problem for patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania, many of whom visit Main Line Plastic Surgery for dermal fillers performed by Dr. Raymond D. Jean.
What is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler designed especially for use in the lips. It works much like regular Restylane® in that it plumps the skin and smooths wrinkles to provide a more youthful appearance. A primary benefit of Restylane® Silk is that it gives very natural-looking results, so there is no need to worry about puffiness or that “bee stung” look.
Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane® Silk?
You may wish to undergo a Restylane® Silk procedure if you have noticed a loss in lip volume or are naturally plagued by very thin lips.
Planning your Restylane® Silk Treatment
Drop by for a consultation, and we will go over your health history and determine a good time for you to receive your injection. You only need a 30-minute appointment, so Restylane® Silk can easily be performed at a time that is most convenient for you.
How is Restylane® Silk Performed?
The gel-like solution is placed into a syringe containing a very thin needle. Dr. Jean may pull your lip up, down, or to the side in order to better access the right area to place the injection. He will then deliver precisely the right amount into either your top or bottom lip (or in some cases, both lips). Your Restylane® Silk procedure will be over with before you know it.
How Much Does Restylane® Silk Cost in Philadelphia?
Medical spa procedures such as Restylane® Silk are highly customized, meaning that a number of variables are used to calculate the price. In addition to payment through cash, personal check, and major credit/debit cards, we also accept CareCredit® financing. CareCredit® works like a credit card, offering low-interest rates and easily affordable payments to help you afford Restylane® Silk on your terms.
What to Expect* after Restylane® Silk
*You will notice fuller lips immediately following Restylane® Silk. In fact, many people report their lips are much bigger than they had anticipated. This is likely due to swelling, which can take up to two weeks to fully dissipate. *After that time, you will be able to see your full results. You may come back in for a touch-up treatment if you would still like more volume; however, most of our patients are very pleased and find that an additional injection is not necessary.
Recovering from Restylane® Silk
*Over-the-counter medication containing ibuprofen or acetaminophen will help you reduce swelling so you can notice your finished results much faster.
