I had the pleasure of attending a great blogger event this past Monday, where local bloggers joined together to learn about new and exciting Restylane® Silk & Restylane® Lyft. Restylane Silk is designed for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients age 21 or older. Silk is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control, resulting in silkier, smoother lips and natural-looking results. In addition, Restylane Lyft is a filler for cheek augmentation and the correction of moderate to severe smile lines. It was so interesting to hear about these new types of products, in addition to seeing it live in action at the event. It was also fascinating to learn from the doctor on-site that as you age, your lips begin to lose its fuller shape and appear as thin. An attendee at the event had the Restylane Silk treatment on-the-spot applied to her lips and it made her lips look so much fuller and overall gave her a lovely and youthful look.
The event was hosted by Dr. Vic Narurkar, who gave a great discussion about aesthetics, aging, and beauty. Please feel free to visit his website here if you’re interested in making an appointment! In addition, more exciting things to share—Galderma has a rewards program called “ASPIRE Galderma Rewards,” which is an amazing opportunity for you to earn extra benefits when using Galderma aesthetic treatments. Each new member will also receive a $20 Treatment Certificate which can be applied toward their next treatment.
