Throughout the years, residents of North Florida have gradually discovered one of the state’s best-kept secrets. Serving the Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra areas, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery offers Restylane® Silk, which is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure that greatly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Led by Dr. Phillip Garcia, a double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, our five convenient offices cater to those who would like fuller and more sensual lips.

What is Restylane® Silk?

Restylane® Silk is a treatment that is designed to create voluminous lips while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These fine lines and wrinkles are often referred to as perioral rhytids or smoker’s lines by experienced medical professionals. Restylane® Silk is the first cosmetic procedure that is approved by the FDA to promote body in the lips.

Benefits of Restylane® Silk

The aging process usually consists of a decrease of volume in the lips and an increase in fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. As a proprietary gel formulated from ultra-tiny beads, Restylane® Silk contains the necessary ingredients to reduce the signs of aging by enhancing volume in lips and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. Since the beads in the treatment are smoother and smaller than those found in other Restylane® products, Restylane® Silk has been shown to provide clients with shapely, youthful and plump lips that appear completely natural.

The primary purpose of Restylane® Silk is to treat the following:

  • Aging lips that appear thin and less plump
  • Smoker’s lines, which are the fine lines and creases that are located near the edge of the lip

Who is a Good Candidate for Restylane® Silk?

Restylane® Silk is a perfect treatment for those who would like to create full, plump, youthful and natural-looking lips. Adults who are interested in minimizing the wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth are also good candidates.

How Should I Prepare for Restylane® Silk?

Although Restylane® Silk is an FDA-approved and all-natural product, individuals should still properly prepare for the treatment by informing the nurse injector of any medical conditions, allergies, prescription medications and former injections so that an adverse reaction does not occur during the appointment. Depending on clients’ medical history and unique needs, the nurse injector may suggest that they avoid certain medications, such as vitamin E supplements, ibuprofen, and aspirin before the appointment. The nurse injector may also discourage some clients from taking medication that contains St. John’s Wort. The possibility of an adverse reaction to the treatment is extremely rare, but it’s a good idea to adhere to these precautions to ensure a successful outcome.

How is Restylane® Silk Administered?

The duration of the Restylane® Silk treatment is usually about 30 minutes. Before applying the Restylane® Silk gel into the lips, the nurse injector will first numb the area with a topical agent to prevent discomfort. The treatment is injected directly into the lips by using an extremely thin needle. After the appointment, individuals can expect to notice significant results almost immediately. Because frequent hydration will usually smooth the fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, many of the benefits of the treatment will continue over time. The results of Restylane® Silk will last between 10 and 12 months.

How Much do Restylane® Silk Treatments Cost in Jacksonville?
