Dr. Y. Anthony Nakamura, a board-certified plastic surgeon and recognized expert in plastic surgery and body contouring, offers Restylane® Silk injections to the residents of Arlington, Dallas Fort Worth, and the surrounding communities in Texas.
What is Restylane® Silk?
The popular treatment known as Restylane® Silk is a type of injectable filler often used for facial line treatment, the creation of fuller lips, the elimination of dark circles beneath the eyes, cheek depressions, and acne scarring.
Restylane® Silk includes an anesthetic component known as lidocaine, and it’s useful for mitigating pain from the shot and procedure. Along with lidocaine, Restylane® Silk contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that decreases in production with age.
Who is a Good Candidate for Restylane® Silk?
Anyone over the age of 21 is eligible to receive Restylane® Silk treatment. If you have a desire to eliminate facial lines, attain plumper lips, or erase skin imperfections, Restylane® Silk is the right choice.
Advantages of Restylane® Silk
People seek Restylane® Silk treatment for a number of reasons. The most common are as follows:
- Results are controllable. Dr. Nakamura precisely chooses where to inject the needle, which helps to ensure the patient receives the desired result.
- You can safely increase treatment how you see fit. Dr. Nakamura can provide multiple treatment sessions over a span of time so that lip plumpness can gradually increase until you’re satisfied. This eliminates the risk of too much filler being administered in one sitting.
- Side effects and allergic reactions are minimal. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body. Because of this, it’s highly unlikely that you will suffer from allergic reactions or side effects. It must be noted that if you are allergic to lidocaine, however, you should seek medical advice from your regular doctor about beginning Restylane® Silk treatment.
- Results are long-lasting. Clinical research has shown that the effects of Restylane® Silk can last for well over six months. Keep in mind that Restylane® Silk is not a permanent procedure, so results will begin to fade with a considerable amount of time.
The Restylane® Silk Procedure
The procedure associated with Restylane® Silk is actually quite simple and quick. Once Dr. Nakamura is ready, he injects the solution into the area that is to be improved. The lidocaine in the solution begins working immediately by numbing painful sensations in the area of the injection(s). This eliminates the need for anesthesia.
Patients who are exceptionally worried about possible discomfort are given the option of using a topical application instead. Treatment lasts for roughly 30 to 45 minutes, but the span of time will depend on the area(s) being treated. In fact, some patients opt to receive treatment during their work lunch breaks.
Dr Nakamura and his staff have been fabulous through my whole endeavor. I am so pleased with my results, but more importantly how I was treated and cared for. They are sensitive and friendly, they went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable with the office, the environment and the procedures. I reviewed several surgeons before choosing him and I'd never go anywhere else!
The Restylane® Silk Recovery Process
In some patients, Restylane® Silk is known to cause minimal swelling, discomfort, and bruising in the lips. You can decrease the chances for these types of side effects by steering clear of aspirin, ibuprofen, and particular supplements before your scheduled treatment(s). These types of medications and supplements have also been known to cause bleeding after a Restylane® Silk injection. To be sure, Dr. Nakamura will help you understand exactly what types of medicine and supplements to avoid before treatment.
Fortunately, you will not need to recover from your Restylane® Silk injection. You can return to work/school and your daily activities immediately following the treatment. Within just two weeks, you will likely begin to see noticeable results.
How much does Restylane® Silk cost?
Because each patient is different, the cost will depend on a number of factors. For example, the cost will heavily depend on the area that you want to be treated. Dr. Nakamura will help you understand the costs associated with your desired treatment. Likewise, he’ll present various payment options, and you’ll be given the opportunity to develop a financing plan if necessary.
What Should I Expect During My Consultation?
During your consultation, you’ll meet with both Dr. Nakamura and his staff to go over customized solutions for your personal concerns. Dr. Nakamura will lay the groundwork for an appropriate treatment plan that will give you the results you desire. At this time, you’ll also be able to discuss payment options for the procedure.
