Join Dr. Kass as he shares his expertise on Silikon-1000.
What is Silikon 1000?
Silikon 1000 is a medical-grade silicone oil first developed to fix detached retinas. More recently, it has become a popular beauty treatment, and has proven an effective liquid filler for the face.
Other liquid facial fillers are absorbed easily by the body so that their results are only temporary. The Silikon 1000 filler is unique in that it is not absorbed or broken down by the body, so that it stays intact and provides permanent results.
The use of Silikon 1000 as a cosmetic treatment
For 30 years, both dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons have used Silikon 1000 to improve the skin’s appearance, and with great success. As it was not originally designed for cosmetic use, Silikon 1000 is not licensed by the FDA for cosmetic use. However, the FDA has allowed licensed physicians to use the filler for “off label” purposes, much like Botox® is licensed to be used as a cosmetic treatment. Silikon 1000 has a decades-long history of safe and effective use for cosmetic enhancement. The medical-grade silicone oil composition of Silikon 1000 has proven to be an exceptional, long-lasting filler that can be used on most areas of the face.
Before and After Photos
Years of experience has shown that when used by properly qualified cosmetic and plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Kass, who is a board certified ophthalmologist and plastic surgeon, there is a very low risk of any adverse side effects.
Silikon 1000 is used for lip augmentation, treatment of scars, sagging issues around the eyes, and to improve the appearance of the nose area in particular the nasolabial fold. It is also used on deep wrinkles and on frown lines, especially those across the bridge of the nose and those around the mouth.
Patients who are showing the early stages of aging in their face can often avoid having a surgical face lift with the help of a skilled cosmetic surgeon and Silikon 1000.
Use of Silikon 1000 to fill in small areas such as dips and dents on the nose are very effective and can prevent the patient from needing surgery to correct these imperfections.
How does Silikon 1000 work?
Tiny drops (micro-drops) of Silikon 1000 are injected into the area that needs to be filled. Your body then forms collagen around each droplet, which means that the area is slowly filled with more body tissue. Injections are spaced out over a month or so to give your body time to produce collagen and to ensure that the area does not become over-filled.
Is Silikon 1000 for me?
If you want to have a cosmetic procedure that involves a filler, then Silikon 1000 is usually a good choice.
It is vital that you only allow a very experienced cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist to use Silikon 1000 on you. Bear in mind that the results, be they good or bad, are permanent.
