Everyone has heard horror stories about injectable silicone gone wrong. From silicone migration to permanent bad results, it may seem like silicone has no use as dermal filler at all.

Overview: What Is Silikon-1000?
Silikon-1000 is an injectable form of silicone that is FDA approved to treat detached retinas. However, it can be safely and legally used off label. It is the only medical grade silicone that can be used as a dermal filler. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers or semi-permanent fillers, it is not broken down by the body overtime. Your face will continue to age, of course, but the filler itself does not degenerate like with other dermal filler options. Therefore, this is why it is considered a permanent filler.
The medical grade silicone is generally injected over the course of a few sessions. Silicone should not be injected all at once for the best results. Additionally, experienced practitioners follow the micro-droplet injection technique which is the safest technique and promotes optimal outcomes. It is ideal to find a provider who has experience injecting Silikon-1000 in your area of interest.
Where Can You Use It?
You can receive Silikon-1000 injections nearly anywhere you can receive dermal fillers. Some of the possible treatment areas include:
- Under eyes
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Nose (non-surgical rhinoplasty)
Frequently Asked Questions
Is It Safe?
Yes, injections of Silikon-1000 are completely safe when performed by a qualified injector. It is important to note that Silikon-100 is the only medical grade silicone available for cosmetic injections and can only be purchased by medical professionals. Industrial grade silicone is dangerous and harmful if injected. While not FDA approved for cosmetic applications yet, Silikon-1000 is safe and legal to use off label.
Can It Be Reversed?
No, at least not easily. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers which have a reversal agent called hyaluronidase, Silikon-1000 does not have a reversal agent. If removal occurs, it is generally surgical. This is why it is recommended that only patients experience in receiving dermal fillers undergo Silikon-1000 injections.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate?
As mentioned, the ideal candidate is someone who has had dermal fillers before and knows the results they like and want. Additionally, patients should be in overall good health and understand what the procedure entails. Beyond this, there are no major requirements of Silikon-1000 injection patients.
