Restylane Silk is a unique hyaluronic acid facial filler that appears to be the best treatment for lip lines and natural lip augmentation. Galderma recently invited top facial filler injecting physicians from around the world to Dallas, TX for the Galderma Aesthetic Injection Network (GAIN) to certify them to become Restylane Silk (and other product) trainers. Dr. Michael Persky was honored and privileged to be among those at the GAIN conference.
Persky Sunder Facial Plastic Surgery is among the first practices in the US and California to use Restylane Silk. The product has been used in Canada, Europe, and outside the US for about 5 years. It differs from Restylane and Perlane as it’s hyaluronic acid particles are filtered to be the smallest among facial fillers. The tiny size of the particles allows Restylane Silk to naturally spread where it is injected, resulting in a very natural smooth filling of lines and wrinkles. It is a very soft product. It can be used by itself to augment lips and to take care of those most difficult to treat vertical (smoker’s) lip lines.
In the study that resulted in US FDA approval for Restylane Silk, ninety-eight percent of subjects reported improvement in their lip fullness 14 days after injection and 76% of the subjects still had lip improvement 6 months after their injection. Experienced Canadian plastic surgeon Arthur Swift, MD stated that his experience is that it lasts close to nine months.
Dr. Persky is injecting this amazing product now and feels that it is a unique product that adds to the ability to create naturally beautiful lips. It is FDA approved and available only to a very limited number of healthcare professionals.
As with all facial aesthetic procedures, the most important aspect of the treatment or product is making sure that you choose your treating physician most carefully, based on their skill, training, experience, and artistic vision.
