Today, I’m talking about my thoughts on Restylane® Lyft and Restylane® Silk. It’s something completely off what I normally talked about on my blog but since I do have a section for beauty and this technically falls under that category, I wanted to share my thoughts about Restylane® that I feel is important people know about. When I first heard about it, I’ll be honest; I was a bit apprehensive about it. I’m not against people getting procedures done to enhance a specific part of their face; however, my main concern is making sure it is 100% safe.
I was really bummed out that I wasn’t able to make the event Galderma hosted a few weeks ago, as I am truly fascinated on how Restylane® works. I wanted to learn more information.
For those of you who are not familiar with Restylane®, here’s a quick bio:
Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years and older. Restylane® Silk is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control, resulting in silkier, smoother lips and natural-looking results.
Restylane® Lyft is FDA-approved and designed for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related, mid face contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. Over the course of time, the natural fat surrounding the cheeks begin to deteriorate, resulting in a reduction of volume, sagging skin and more prominent wrinkles. Through this nonsurgical injection, Restylane® Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and mid face area, which can result in a natural-looking appearance.
After doing my research on Restylane®, I discovered that each treatment is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. It is a natural way to keep your skin looking as young as possible without going under the knife. It is safe, and definitely the product I would trust if I ever were considering getting a procedure done.
