What to Know About Injectables

Injectables have different results and are made differently. Although, they do have similarities. For instance, they are temporary, customizable, and skin-smoothing treatments. They are also great preventative aging treatments. They are all injected under the skin to soften wrinkles, creases, and fine lines. Everyone’s facial expressions and movements are different. You and your injector will decide the best injection for your care. No matter the type, results are guaranteed to give a fresh, younger-looking appearance! 

Restylane Silk Injections

Restylane Silk comes from the family of Restylane injectables. As a hyaluronic acid-based filler, Restylane Silk plumps and revitalizes the lips and cheeks. Improving signs of aging from wrinkles and creases near the mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the body. When used in an injectable, it will induce the natural production of collagen in the skin. Results are seen almost immediately, if not days after injection, and last roughly 6-10 months. As with any injection the results depend on unique factors. Therefore, the outcome depends on the quantity of filler and your metabolism.

What Makes Restylane Silk Different?

Restylane Silk is the first filler manufactured using lidocaine. The injectable is specific for targeting rejuvenation of the cheeks, lips, and surrounding mouth area. Restylane Silk was uniquely created with a softer consistency than its rival fillers. Restylane Silk filler corrects lines and creases with a natural-looking result.
