Restylane Silk in Charlotte, NC
Fine lines are some of the more challenging cosmetic problems to correct because many dermal fillers have particle sizes that are designed for more obvious problems. Restylane® Silk is specifically designed to correct fine lines. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David F. Klein, specializes in Restylane® Silk treatments for men and women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina.
What is Restylane® Silk?
Particle size is one of the characteristics of a dermal filler that determines how it can be used to fight the signs of aging. Most dermal fillers have medium to large particle sizes that work well on moderate to severe wrinkles, folds, and creases. Treating fine lines, though, requires a relatively small particle size so that the treatment area maintains a natural appearance. Restylane® Silk is formulated with smaller particles of hyaluronic acid to help you with fine lines.
Benefits of Restylane® Silk
Restylane® Silk is unique amongst dermal fillers because it targets fine lines. The product can also be used for lip augmentation. Your Restylane® Silk treatments help you look younger:
- Without surgery, incisions or downtime
- In less than one hour
- For up to six months
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other dermal fillers to improve your overall appearance. The ideal candidate for Restylane® Silk is someone who has fine lines around the eyes and mouth. These may or may not be the only signs of aging.
What Do I Need to Do Before Restylane® Silk?
Because Restylane® Silk is one of the more specialized dermal fillers on the market, it should only be administered by an experienced plastic surgeon who knows how to use the product to achieve optimum results. Dr. Klein is uniquely qualified to perform the treatments, so we recommend that you start with a consultation at Renaissance Plastic Surgery.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Restylane® Silk?
Your first treatment will take the longest because the degree of correction is most significant. Expect the appointment to take 30 to 60 minutes. We recommend follow-up treatments four to six months after your first treatment, and the appointment will take 15 to 30 minutes.
What to Expect After Restylane® Silk
All dermal fillers carry a risk of minor side effects that are primarily associated with the injections. This may include swelling, tenderness, redness, bruising and pinpoint bleeding for up to two days. Restylane® Silk contains hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in the body, so allergy testing is normally not required.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Restylane® Silk?
You will not have scars because of your Restylane® Silk treatments at Renaissance Plastic Surgery.
When Will I See the Results?
The gel formulation adds volume to the skin right after the injections, so your fine lines will be softened. Full effects can take a few weeks to allow the hyaluronic acid to bind with water.
How Long Will the Results of Restylane® Silk Last?
The results of Restylane® Silk treatments last four to six months.
How Much Does Restylane® Silk Cost in Charlotte?
Restylane® Silk is an elective cosmetic procedure that is not covered by medical insurance. After your consultation, we will provide a total cost based on the amount of product and number of injections. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks and major credit cards. Financing is available through CareCredit®.
