Silikon 1000 is a medical grade, injectable silicone compound used to help produce better-proportioned facial features, lines, and contours.
This filler is used primarily to reduce the appearance of unwanted facial wrinkles and lines. It is also commonly used in lip augmentation and enhancement. Because the body safely and slowly absorbs Silikon 1000, it represents a subtle, safe, and comfortable form of facial line treatment.
One of the greatest strengths of Silikon 1000 is its ability to be safely and naturally absorbed by the body. Because of this, Silikon 1000 treatments tend to be fairly simple, straightforward, and noninvasive. Any generally healthy individual seeking to reduce the appearance of facial scars, wrinkles, lines, or other signs of skin damage, or who would like to reshape or augment the lips, makes a strong candidate for Silikon 1000 injections. As with any other cosmetic treatment, the real key is to become as informed as possible regarding the expected outcomes of such a treatment. If these expectations meet your personal health and body image goals, then Silikon 1000 may be a good option.
If you have experienced any of the following conditions, discuss them with Dr. Fogleman and Dr. Benien before receiving Silikon 1000 injections:
Silikon 1000 is an effective form of cosmetic treatment because it stimulates and promotes your body’s natural processes of skin growth and maintenance. Collagen plays a critical role in the body’s ability to build strong and healthy skin cells, but its presence in the body decreases with age. This is one of the main reasons why skin begins to form wrinkles and show other signs of skin damage.
After working with Dr. Fogleman and Dr. Benien to identify target areas of the face, injections of Silikon 1000 will be administered just below the surface of the skin. Once the substance has been injected, it maintains its micro droplet structure, and is subsequently surrounded by a collagen capsule. In this way, the presence of Silikon 1000 promotes the natural production of collagen. As collagen production increases, the body builds stronger, healthier, more youthful-looking skin.
Silikon 1000 injections are noninvasive and relatively pain free. Despite some initial redness, swelling, bruising, or irritation at the site of injection, you should be able to return to normal activities within the first day or two after receiving treatment. When Silikon 1000 is used for lip enhancement treatments, your Oklahoma City cosmetic surgeon may provide a dental block to aid in recovery and reduce the chance of pain or discomfort.
Although Silikon 1000 is effective in temporarily diminishing the appearance of facial lines, scars, and wrinkles, these features will reappear with age, and additional treatments may become necessary. After your first Silikon 1000 injection, work closely with Dr. Fogleman and Dr. Benien to determine when and how often future treatments should occur.
