As a registered nurse, Kristy’s treatment is performed with precision and attention to your personal needs.
Restylane Silk is our preferred non-surgical treatment for the hollows under the eye and is one of our most popular lip enhancers. The periorbital (eye) region is a key feature of facial beauty. A smooth transition from the lower lid to a full, elegant cheek is a highly desired appearance.
Supple and balanced lips can also transform your facial appearance. Whether you were born with small lips, or they’ve begun to thin due to the natural aging process, artistic Restylane Silk injections can help you achieve a full and voluminous mouth that enhances your innate attractiveness.
What is Restylane Silk?
our West Palm Beach Restylane Silk is a dermal filler that’s composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that’s responsible for holding in moisture and adding youthful volume to your skin and lips. Over time, this substance breaks down, which is why the lips tend to become thinner with age. By temporarily restoring your supply of lost hyaluronic acid, Restylane Silk can plump the lips, smooth fine lines around the mouth, fill the hollows under the eyes, and create a more youthful and attractive overall appearance.
What to expect during your Restylane Silk lip injections
Your Restylane Silk lip injections will be performed entirely in the comfort of our Palm Beach Gardens office. To begin, our advanced registered nurse practitioner, Kristy Levin, will carefully evaluate your facial anatomy to determine the precise contours that will blend in naturally with the rest of your facial features. From there, she will compose a custom treatment plan that’s designed to enhance your features and create a beautiful and more youthful overall look.
To perform your actual treatment, Kristy will use a very fine needle to inject the Restylane Silk in strategic locations, taking special care to create a final outcome that is precisely as full and voluminous as you desire. Because Restylane Silk has a local anesthetic built in, you can expect this entire 30-minute treatment to be comfortable and virtually pain-free.
After your injections, there is very minimal downtime. In most cases, our patients can resume their normal daily routine right away, without any activity restrictions. In terms of side effects, they are generally very mild and may include tenderness, swelling and redness that should subside naturally within a few hours.
The results of your West Palm Beach Restylane Silk treatments should be apparent right away. And, because Kristy takes a conservative approach to injections, you can be assured that your will look naturally beautiful–never overdone. It’s important to note that although these results tend to be dramatic, they are temporary. As such, you will need to return to our Palm Beach Gardens office in several months for follow-up treatments to preserve your new look.
