Silikon 1000 San Francisco

Silikon 1000 is one of the only permanent dermal fillers on the market today, designed to add fullness and definition to the face without the need for regular touch-ups. This product may be used for a variety of anti-aging and enhancement purposes, but the lasting nature of the treatment means it should only be performed by an experienced injector. In addition to his vast experience with other types of fillers, Dr. Maas has worked with this revolutionary product, offering his patients another choice in non-surgical enhancement with more durable results than other injectable treatments.

The Silicone Advantage

Medical-grade silicone is the secret to Silikon’s success. This substance has been approved by the FDA for use in retina surgery but has also been used off-label by plastic surgeons for decades. When injected properly, medical-grade silicone offers augmentation of cheeks or lips and smooths away fine lines and wrinkles with long-lasting effects. This is an excellent choice for patients that have been achieving success with other types of dermal fillers but are now looking for results that will not need to be maintained every few months. Permanent results make Silikon 1000 a cost-effective, convenient alternative to fillers like Juvederm or Restylane.

Treatment Options

When used properly, Silikon 1000 may be an effective way to address any or all the following concerns:

  • Nasolabial folds – deep creases running from the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines – wrinkles that stretch from the corners of the mouth to the jawline
  • Shallow scarring, such as that left behind by acne or chicken pox
  • Cheek hollowing that occurs due to collagen depletion and skin laxity
  • Thinning lips caused by genetics or the natural aging process

Dr. Maas will evaluate your concerns and the goals you are hoping to achieve to determine whether Silikon 1000 is the right choice for you. If you have never had a dermal filler before, he might suggest a temporary product first to determine whether you like the results. If the initial treatment gives you the results you are looking for, Silikon 1000 may be the next logical step for you.

The Right Technique

Because the results of Silikon 1000 injections are very challenging to reverse, it is important to get the administration of the solution right the first time around. This is achieved by using a micro-droplet technique that places the solution into the dermal layers in very small amounts at a time. The micro-droplets are also spread throughout the treatment area to produce an even, natural result.

When the drops are administered, a small collagen bubble forms around the solution that expands over time. The amount of collagen varies from patient to patient, but you should see a noticeable difference in the appearance of your skin as that collagen forms underneath. This collagen, as well as the connective tissue that forms with it, become the permanent scaffolding that holds the micro-droplets in place, producing permanent results.

Procedure Basics

Injections of Silikon 1000 are similar to treatments using other types of dermal fillers. The procedure is relatively quick and comfortable, with most patients in and out of our office within less than 30 minutes. When Silikon 1000 is properly injected, the initial results are soft and pliable, leaving little indication you just had a cosmetic procedure performed.

Recovery and Results

There is no recovery after Silikon 1000 injections and few side effects. You may experience some mild swelling or discomfort around the injection sites after the procedure, but these symptoms usually subside within hours. The method of delivery ensures a comfortable procedure as only a small amount of the substance is delivered at one time.

While you may see some initial fullness after your injections, your full results will not be evident right away. It takes time for the collagen and connective tissue to develop around the micro-droplets. Within a matter of weeks, you should see smoother skin and restored volume that will likely last decades.

Because SIlikon 1000 is a permanent injectable solution, the importance of an experienced injector cannot be stressed enough. Don’t trust your treatment to just any doctor; let Dr. Maas perform your procedure to ensure the most natural, beautiful results possible.
