Silikon 1000 St. Louis

Silikon 1000 was originally developed and used to correct retinal detachments. Silikon is FDA-approved for injection to the globe (eyeball). If appropriate, the licensed medical professionals at St. Louis Skin Solutions can opt to use Silikon for “off-label” purposes such as to fill in soft tissue defects in the face. These defects can be a result of growth abnormalities, injury or aging. This is a permanent filler and is only used when patients have had success with temporary fillers and may be suffering from filler fatigue due to repeat injections. Please note that this is an “off-label” indication and use for Silikon and it is never used initially in your treatment process. Dr. Miller and her team have been using Silikon for more than 12 years.

FAQ

How Is Silicone Used in the Face?
Silicone is used to fill in soft tissue defects in the face. These imperfections are often the result of growth abnormalities, aging, or injury. The use of medical grade silicone for facial deficits is considered “off label” since it is FDA approved for use in cases of retinal detachment of the eye. The pros and cons of silicone injections will be reviewed in depth with each patient considering this option.
Is Silicone Permanent or Temporary?
Silicone injections are permanent. Most patients choose silicone after long-term use of temporary dermal fillers.
How Does a Silicone Injection Work?
Silicone is affordable, long-lasting, and easy to use. It is injected into the skin in the same manner as other dermal fillers. Silicone is most commonly used to fill acne scars, improve facial defects, and address specific aging concerns. Silicone can also be used in the feet to plump up fat pads that cushion the foot bones when walking. Over time these fat pads thin out and cause pain when weight bearing. Revolumizing these pads with a durable, long lasting filler can be helpful to decrease foot pain.

    I've visited St Louis Skin Solutions a number of times for various services including laser for scars, visible facial capillaries, botox and fillers. Most of these were my first time receiving the treatment so needless to say, I was nervous. They always do an excellent job and the injections have left me with zero bruising! I will continue to come back, and all the way from the deep urban city limits. Worth it.

    Dr. Miller and her entire team are wonderful. I’ve been thrilled with every treatment I’ve had, as well as the skincare products I now use at home. Because I’ve lost a lot of weight, I’ve been especially concerned about loose skin, and they’ve been able to help address this - and do so much more! I feel more confident than ever in my appearance.
