Lisa Rinna is listening. On Thursday, April 11, Nicole Annette Smith, MSPA, an aesthetic physician assistant, posted a TikTok video discussing the “overfilled look” among celebrities who’ve had dermal filler. In the clip, which has garnered over one million views and counting, Smith features images of the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star to illustrate her points. Despite the scrutiny, the reality star handled it like a champ.

“Skinvive is not for everyone, and it was not good for me,” Rinna commented. “Luckily we could dissolve it today. Whew.” Her comment has garnered thousands of “likes” from viewers, and hundreds of people have praised her candidness in the comments section.

“The key with doing dermal fillers or Botox is to maintain your youthful look, not to alter and change your appearance,” she explains. “They place too much filler in the cheeks and mid-face, it completely throws off the full facial balance. With good injection techniques, your results should be undetectable.”

The key, says Smith, is to focus on the preauricular area. “This will make the cheeks and the face look more balanced.”

The Skinvive treatment in question not only acts as a dermal filler but also improves skin quality by addressing concerns such as dullness, dryness, and fine lines. To determine whether you’re a candidate for the treatment, it’s best to consult with one (or more) board-certified dermatologists or plastic surgeons for their expert insight.

This isn’t the first time Rinna’s been open about her experience with cosmetic procedures. In November of 2020, our former digital cover star told us: “I think we all know the story on my lips. I don’t think we really have to talk about it—it’s pretty much out there for the world. I think whatever anybody wants to do is cool. We have all these products and all these treatments, and at the end of the day, it’s all about feeling good about yourself. That’s really all I have to say about that.”

Rinna famously got permanent silicone lip injections that, over time, led to scarring and made her lips look misshapen, which she had to get corrected through surgical procedures.

Two years after her sit-down interview with NewBeauty, she told People that she’s aware she’s “gone too far with everything.”

“Luckily I’m aware that I go too far and I’m able to pull myself back,” she told the outlet. “But I’ve always gone too far. We know that!” She spoke out on this occasion because she was launching Larger Than Life Lip Plumping Gloss ($24) as part of her makeup line, Rinna Beauty.

“This is doctor-free plumped up lips,” she said of the product. “It really works. It really plums your lips. Use this for 28 days, you will have bigger lips. No appointment necessary!”

Rinna isn’t just a fan of cosmetic treatments; it’s no secret she loves products, too. “There are so many great things out there,” she told NewBeauty for her cover story interview. “Right now, I love those LED face masks. I’m big on getting facials and lasers, and for the last eight months, I haven’t really gone to get any of that stuff. But maintenance is so important, and what we have available to us for anti-aging has come so far.”

Her favorite product? The Dr. Dennis Gross LED Mask ($455). “Those lights are so great!” she said. “They stimulate collagen and kill bacteria, and it just works. I love it. That’s my go-to thing right now because I can’t really go out and have the treatments I love.”
