Hottest holiday gifts to help you look better in those virtual meetings
Cincinnati (WKRC) – If you’re making a list and checking it twice. You may want to check who is spending a lot of time in virtual meetings these days.
The hottest holiday gift this year may be a better-looking zoom experience.
That means with more of us seeing ourselves on screen, gift certificates or gifts to ourselves involving smoother skin and fuller lips, seem to be the top requests.
“We are using Restylane Kysse on Amber,” said Karen Lynch, a Physician’s assistant at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center. “It’s a new hyaluronic acid filler, with expression technology meaning that it’s a soft moveable filler, it’s FDA approved for lips.”
There’s also something else new for lips and eyes. It’s pretty popular on holiday wish lists.
“There’s another class of hyaluronic acids fillers by Revance,” said Dr. Jon Mendelsohn, the owner of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center. “They call them RH2, RH3 and RH4. One of the problems with HA’s is that they’re water-loving, which can draw fluid into the eyes. One of the problems is that you can inject, and you can get a watery edema. It looks a little swollen. It doesn’t look right. Revance has long chains that are maintained, so there’s less hydrophilic tendencies. It’s a wonderful soft product for around the eyes, the lips and similar areas.”
Costs for these products is similar to most fillers. Those start at about $400 to $600 and go up, depending on how much you need.
In most cases, they’re not covered by medical insurance plans.
