Emmy Award winning makeup-up artist Camille Calvet of Calvet Cosmetics has launched a new brand of anti-aging products called SilcSkin. SilcSkin products are made 100% clear medical grade reusable silicone pads that are comfortably worn while sleeping. These pads help soften lines and wrinkles leaving skin youthfully rejuvenated. With over 25 years of experience in the make-up industry, Calvet has worked with some of the biggest movie stars such as Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, and Jennifer Aniston. One prevalent issue for women that arises is hiding wrinkles around the décolletage (chest area). These chest wrinkles, also known as cleavage wrinkles, can be caused by sun damage, sleeping on one’s side and gravity. Calvet states, “If a scene called for a movie star to be in a bikini or a low cut dress, I had my hands full trying to get rid of these wrinkles.” As a special effects makeup artist, Calvet worked extensively with silicone and discovered the healing and softening properties when applied on scars. “With some research, I found that Silicone gel sheeting was being used to heal Keloid scarring. I wondered if I could use silicone to treat wrinkles as effectively,” says Calvet.
By discovering the benefits of silicone on the skin, Calvet developed the Decollette pad into a successful antiaging and cosmetic surgery alternative.
With the success of the Decollette Pad, Calvet began to experiment with using the silicone pads on the face. Calvet discovered similar results in the reduction of fine lines so she moved forward in developing the product.
“SilcSkin Facial Pads are designed for people who either can’t use injectables, or do not want to. And a surprising twist, the pads actually improve the longevity of injectables if you do have them.” SilcSkin Facial Pads for the brow, eye and mouth areas of the face giving individuals simple and economic alternatives to cosmetic surgery.
