Restylane® Silk plumps lips

I love wearing makeup and dressing up to attend events or go out with my husband for the evening. I love the ritual of getting dressed, putting on makeup and feeling great.

However, in the past few years I have noticed that my top lip seems to be getting thinner and thinner. It has been gradually but still enough so I notice and it kind of bothers me a little. I miss that fullness in my lips and I have also noticed some lines around my mouth that have been bothering me as well. I wanted to do something but I wasn’t sure what to do.

Did you know that the lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older? Now I have a whole new reason to smile and that reason is Restylane® Silk!

My #GorgeousLips looked amazing and really made me feel good about myself. I would absolutely do it again. I am all for things that make me look and feel good about myself. In addition, I moisturize my skin several times per day and do what I can to combat the signs of aging.

That thinning of the lips and lines around the mouth that I talked about earlier? That is what happens as we age. Our lips thin. They lost shape and the vertical ines increase around the lips. Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results.

Restylane® Silk: 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. 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.

I was thrilled to visit the Restylane® Silk Make Up Lounge at Getting Gorgeous on July 15th and to be treated by the fabulous Dr. Whitney Bowe. She was very straightforward and told me exactly what to expect.

I also felt confident in her abilities. She shared that since everyone’s lips are different, that means that the ideal lips are different for each person as well.

There was a little swelling the first day which made my lips look a lot larger. The picture above was taken the first night. After using a little ice, the swelling went down completely and had pretty much gone away by the end of the second day.

Restylane® Silk smoothed the wrinkles around my mouth and made my lips look much fuller. I decided to put it to the test and see that actual results with my favorite red lipstick. I just happened to have taken a picture a few weeks prior to my treatment. Check out my before and after below.

You can see in the picture on the left how the top lip is much thinner. In the picture on the right, my lips are much fuller and the wrinkles are gone. It is now over a month later and my lips are still full. They look great and I feel great!
