What is PMS?
Silicon oil is one of the first fillers applied by injection. It is injected drop-wise in small amounts into the subcutis. The skin encapsulates the silicon oil, so that it remains exactly in the place where it was applied. In order to avoid excessive correction, it is important to create the desired effect during several treatments. Special silicon oil – highly purified medical grade silicon – is used for filling wrinkles and tiny furrows. Silicon oil is used for improving the contour of the lips, as well as for fuller lips, smoothing tiny vertical lip folds, reduction of nasolabial folds and reduction of deep frown wrinkles.

What is Silicon oil?
Silicon oil is very useful for firming the contour of the lips and for reduction of lip furrows. The oil is applied by injection into the subcutaneous tissue. It is applied drop-wise in small amounts. The skin encapsulates the silicon oil, so that it remains exactly in the place where it was applied. In order to avoid excessive correction, it is important to create the desired effect during several treatments. A special silicon oil is used to fill in wrinkles and minor furrows: purified medical grade silicone. This is a pure form of silicon oil intended exclusively for medical treatments. Silicon oil is one of the oldest implants applied by injection and, if applied by a professional physician, brings wonderful results.
The doctor uses a thin needle to apply silicon oil into the subcutaneous tissue. Sensitive places, like the lips, are first desensitized. After the treatment, the skin is reddish and swollen. However, this disappears by the next day. Encapsulation occurs after about six weeks and another treatment can be performed. Sometimes three treatments are necessary to achieve the optimum result.
The effect of silicon oil cannot be seen immediately after the treatment. As the body forms new connective tissue around the oil drops, it takes about five to six weeks for the final result to appear. The silicon oil remains soft to the touch and young firmness is returned, especially to the lips. The effect is visible for two to five years, and sometimes even longer.For more information see http://www.estheticon.com/procedures/injectable-fillers-collagen-fibrogen
