|A before with the Lips|
drawn in to create definition
Fast forward, my daily presentation is somewhat androgynous and only when dressing for an event or meeting do I go all in with makeup. Maybe a little eyeliner, blush and lip gloss for the day time. Drawing in the lip-line and filling it in is not part of my daily, out-the-door, look.
A few week ago a well respected local plastic surgeon did a zoom presentation and discussed a new (to the US) Resilient Hyaluronic Acidcosmetic cosmetic filler (RHA). The demonstration involved injecting the filler into the lips with a micro-needle. There were startling results immediately - instant gratification.
From another surgeon's site, here are the benefits that can be derived form lip fillers.
After a consultation with Lori, Dr. Pinsky's PA, I said yes. She was competent and assured me that the injections would be natural and would enhance my over all look. A numbing cream was applied and during the 15 minute procedure I felt no pain. Lori's expert hand worked the four sides of my upper and lower lips and the center cupid's bow. I was impressed with her artistry and professional manner. Without question this was a procedure she did many times a day; practice makes perfect.
Unlike other fillers, RHA® lasts for approximately 9 to 18 months. Results will depend on the age, lifestyle, and area treated.
If I am able to get that wearability, I will be happy. I can tell you without question I am super satisfied with the results and today, I have lips. Thank you Lori and Dr. Pinsky
