This post is sponsoredby Restylane® Lyft and Restylane® Silk. However, the thoughts and opinions are my own.
Two weeks ago, I was able to attend a wonderful and informative presentation on Restylane® Lyft and Restylane® Silk . Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA approved filler for cheek augmentation and the correction of moderate to severe smile lines (nasolabial folds) and 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.
Cosmetic Dermatologist Jason Emer spoke to a small group of people in attendance at the Galderma blogger event, which was hosted at Beso Hollywood. He taught us about the Restylaneinjection gel fillers called Restylane Silk and Restylane Lyft, and informed us about the advantages of treating facial wrinkles and folds. Dr. Emer informed us that Restylane can last for up to a year.
After we learned about the Restylanefamily of products and how they combat signs of aging, Dr. Emer had a live demonstration of the cheek and lip enhancement procedures on someone in the audience. This was my favorite part of the night because I’ve always been so curious about these types of procedures. It showed how great the product was. It transformed her face from looking sad and tired into a face full of life and vibrance.
Dr. Emer was friendly and knowledgeable. He was thorough in his presentation and I really felt that I learned a lot about these aesthetic products. I am still a little scared about these types of procedures, but I feel that, just like with anything else in life, the more you learn about something the easier it is to make more informed and responsible decisions.
If anyone is looking into getting these types of wrinkle treatments and age combating procedures, I would definitely recommend Dr. Jason Emer and the Restylaneline of products. They also have a ASPIRE Galderma Rewards program which is an amazing opportunity for individuals to earn extra benefits when using Galderma aesthetic treatments. Each new member also receives $20 treatment certificate which can be applied toward his or her next treatment. Here is the site to check out more information:ASPIRErewards.com/whatshersecret
