There comes a day, during your morning makeup routine, when you look into the mirror and something stares back at you. Something that you didn’t see the day, night, or week before. You can’t help but focus on it. As it stares right back at you, a feeling of defeat sets in. Lucky for us, softening the blow is a portfolio of products you can learn about at BrilliantDistinctions.com.
I recently had “a moment in the mirror” when I met a group of vertical lines that had taken up residency around my mouth. The years of hiding these guys under makeup were gone. They were there for the long haul, standing tough. The time had come to take action. My first stop, www. brilliantdistinction.com, to research and gather information about injectable fillers. My next stop was a consultation with the trusted staff at my favorite aesthetic office. And the verdict? There was hope for me and my deep (or moderate or severe) vertical lip lines. My doctor said for me, all it would take was one visit and one syringe of JUVÉDERM XC®.
JUVÉDERM XC® is a filler that softens the look of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in the face and will last up to one year with optimal treatment. After gathering my facts—and scheduling an appointment—I knew I was ready.
Although I’ve been with my injection nurse for years, it can be a bit nerve-racking trying a new procedure. Be sure you have thoroughly discussed the procedure and the outcome you desire with a trusted and trained doctor.When “JUVÉDERM XC® Day” arrived, as always, I was eager to get into the office. We discussed once more how the procedure works and what I hope to gain and lose from it.
After my aesthetician applied a very effective numbing cream, prepped the area with alcohol and made a few well-placed injections, the appearance of my lines was improved! I left the office with that, “Wow. Why did I wait so long to do that?” feeling—AND some Brilliant Distinctions® points to apply toward my next procedure.
Today, I look in the mirror and smile. Thanks to JUVÉDERM XC®, the appearance of those nasty lines has improved. These days I apply lip-liner to add to the beauty of my smile, not to hide or distract.
