Living in the south, especially in Atlanta, the beauty & style trends tend to vary and expand every day. Whether it’s current fashion or a major beauty secret, I’m always interested to see how the women around me are tackling the top trends. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to check out an event featuring a trend that has always been of major interest to me: lip & face fillers.
Now yes, you might be wondering “Why, Lauren, is this of interest to you?” Well hello, have you seen any celebrities/Real Housewives of OC/ etc. I was always so curious why women would go into a doctor’s office to work done to their face and body. Not that I’m against it in general or think that women that do it are crazy, I just never really understood the WHY. Thanks to Restylane®, Dr. Anna Pare and the entire team, I was able to learn a little more about two of their most recent products and I have to say, I have a slightly different outlook than I did before.
So let’s start with the basics (because that’s really all I could handle and take in in just one night!):
- The services we learned about were Restylane® Lyft and Restylane® Silk.
- 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 of age and older
- Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA approved filler for cheek augmentation and the correction of moderate to severe smile lines (nasolabial folds).
I love learning about new trends in both the fashion & beauty biz so it was great to hear from one of the greatest out there. And while I might not be making an appointment for any treatments in the near future (god bless my momma’s good skin!), I can’t wait to make a one-on-one visit with Dr. Anna to get a consult and learn a little more about Restylane® and all that the Atlanta office has to offer.
