This post is sponsored by Restylane® Silk. However, the thoughts and opinions are my own.
Last month I had the opportunity to attend a brunch while I was in New York to learn more about Restylane® Silk.
Restylane® Silk is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years of age and older.
Because as you get older, the lips and the lines around your mouth start to show the signs of aging. You can see things like lip thinning, lost shape, and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Even though I’m pretty sure I don’t look my age, I’m also pretty sure I don’t easily pass for my 20s anymore.
Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products. In a clinical study, patients treated with Restylane® Silk reported fast-acting, long-lasting results:
98% of patients reported a visible improvement in lip fullness 14 days after injection.
76% of patients still had lip improvement six months following injection.
Best of all, I thought everyone looked great immediately after their treatments! And of course I kept running into the bloggers again and again during the trip…and each day they looked even better! You can find out more about Restylane® Silk-including licensed doctors in your area-on their website.
