It's been five months since I tried Restylane® Silk, the first and only FDA-approved product exclusively designed for lip enhancement and the treatment of lines and wrinkles around the mouth, and my lips continue to look and feel fabulous! You can read all about my experience during and after the procedure here.
Last month, Restylane Silk was the headline sponsor of this year's Getting Gorgeous fashion and beauty event hosted by my pals Vera Sweeney and Audrey McClelland. I'm so happy with the results of my treatment that I joined the Restylane Silk team in their glamorous event lounge to speak about my experience and show off my natural-looking pout. Fellow Restylane Silk fan, Bryce Gruber, and I even wore buttons that read, "Ask Me About My Silky Lips!"
Attendees were treated to makeup touchups, refreshments and sweet treats, a charging station, and a Restylane Silk consultation with top NYC dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe. The overall message is that the lips and lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as we get older and Restylane Silk is designed specifically to combat lip thinning, lost shape, and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane products, Restylane Silk provides natural-looking results. I can certainly attest to that and the fact that it's fast-acting and long-lasting. I'm not alone; in a clinical study, 98% of patients reported a visible improvement in lip fullness 14 days after injections and 76% still had lip improvement six months following injection.
