I love my age...I’m quite proud of where I am in life and the years that are behind me have gotten me here. That being said, what girl wouldn’t like to look a few years younger? Am I right? And that goes double when we’re talking about the delicate area around the mouth because as we age, our lips tend to lose shape and get thinner. Now I’ve always had rather full lips, so that wasn’t really something I even thought about until I hit my thirties. And then it seemed like overnight my lips lost some volume. My face had officially begun to show its age.. Now what? I’m very strict with my skincare routine. In fact, I use anti-aging products daily without fail, but there is only so much I can do on my own.
Don’t get me wrong...Duck lips are most definitely not what I’m going for, but natural looking lips that appear more youthful? That I can get behind! I certainly won’t be taking pouting selfies anytime soon, but I would love to see my lips return to their former glory. I mean my statement lipstick deserves to be displayed on a pair of nice full lips. Haha! Mama loves her lippies! And with deep, bold colors on tap for fall, I want my lips to be the best that they can be. I’m ready to showcase those vampy colors! Who’s with me? Now what can we do about our aging lips situation you ask?
Enter Restylane® Silk…It 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. This smooth, transparent hyaluronic acid (HA) gel can be injected into the lips or area around the mouth to restore natural-looking youthful definition, symmetry, and smooth wrinkles. Did I mention that I’m not a huge fan of wrinkles? Just sayin’. I tend to purse my lips when I’m concentrating and I’m fairly certain that hasn’t done me any favors in the fine lines department.
