Restylane® Silk in Staten Island, NY

Dr. Decorato offers Restylane® Silk treatments to patients throughout New York and New Jersey, including Staten Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Elizabeth, Newark, Jersey City, and Perth Amboy.

Restylane® Silk, formally known as Perlane®, is one of the newest types of injectable cosmetic dermal fillers, having just been approved by the FDA in June 2014. Restylane® Silk is best when used for reducing lines and wrinkles near the sides of the mouth, also commonly referred to as laugh lines. The injectable is gentle, non-invasive and is a short procedure lasting no longer than 30 minutes. A biodegradable, vegetable-based solution is used in the product, and there aren’t any risks of allergies.

Is Restylane® Silk Right For Me?

If you are in good physical health, have realistic expectations about the results of your face after treatment, and have lines, skin depressions, skin folds or wrinkles you want to correct, you are a good candidate for the Restylane® Silk treatment. There are no known allergies that are affected by Restylane® Silk treatments, though if you have any concerns, you should ask your doctor first. It is so safe that skin tests are rarely done before getting this filler.

Procedure Details

Restylane® Silk is an FDA-approved treatment for smoothing the skin of lines and wrinkles. It provides an easy, non-surgical treatment by inserting the solution with a very thin needle. The skin is numbed prior to treatment, either with a topical solution or by using a local anesthetic. This makes it a painless and fast procedure. Once the area is numbed, the solution is inserted into the problem areas of your skin. From beginning to end, the process takes about 30 minutes. Restylane® Silk can go just under the skin’s surface or deep into the skin, though it is made to help plump up lips.

Recovery After Restylane® Silk

Since this is a minimally-invasive procedure, you can return to your normal activities right away, though you should be careful with touching your face. Avoid strenuous activities, especially contact sports for 24 hours after the procedure. The most common side effects experienced after having the Restylane® Silk injections are redness, swelling, and mild bruising. These can be relieved by taking plenty of vitamin C, staying hydrated, and applying a cold compress. The results are instant and lasts about 6-12 months on average. If you are experiencing what looks like a bad chemical reaction on your skin, consult your doctor right away. This is rare, and your doctor will likely test you prior to doing the procedure for any sensitivities.
