Permalip - Charleston, SC

I was SO scared to do permalip! I wasnt even able...

I was SO scared to do permalip! I wasnt even able to sleep at night because I was kinda scared after watching the procedure on youtube but knew I really wanted the look they give after a lot of research and others experience. I had it done today and I can not believe that I was scared this whole time! It was painless and so very quick. The worse part is the numbing needles and even that was finished so quickly. I am swollen but am taking medications for the pain, swelling and a natural supplement called Anika Forte for the bruising as opted and recommended by Dr. Hochmans office. So far I am in love! I would deff recommend this to everyone that wants fuller lips. I did restylane once and was like I cant afford this every 4-6 months. Any questions I would love to answer to the best of my ability and experience. My sister is going to get hers done in 2 weeks. I can not wait to update you guys when my lips are healed up a little bit more.

Day 3- The first two days my lips felt a little...

Day 3- The first two days my lips felt a little tight which is probably from the stretching of my skin. I also wasnt taking the pain killer because pain killers always give me nausea so I rather deal with the "tightness" than the nausea. I do make sure that I take all the other medication on schedule. All the discomfort has resided. I am still not quite able to smile due to the stitches. Everyday the swelling goes down. I have been using colgate wisp because brushing teeth have been kinda a challenge. I also use listerine. As far as helping the skin stay soft and not cracking, I highly recommend Aquaphor. I am pretty big with tattoos and Aquaphor heals them best also so I saw this to be fit for healing my lips also. I will most deff post another update in about another 4 days!

Its been a week. Today I have much more mobility...

Its been a week. Today I have much more mobility (Less tightness/Stiffness) in my lips. There is still some swelling on my top lip in particular. There is also still some bruising on the wet dry line. So far I am still very happy with the results. I am continuing to use the aquaphor because they get very dry and chapped.
