I am 24 and had wanted fuller lips for years. I liked the shape of my lips but was self conscious about my lack of volume esp in my upper lip. I had read lots of reviews on it and from what I could tell, if i didn't like it, its not like it was permenant surgery so I figured why not? I would always wonder till I did so I took the plunge!

I LOVE my results! I went to my ophthalmologist who specialized in botox and juvaderm products around the eyes, face, and lips. I had seen his before an after pictures and had complete trust in him.

I got 1 syringe of Juvaderm Ultra Plus mostly in my upper lip with a small amount in the lower. He did topical numbing on my lips and had me use an ice pack, then numbing injections, and then the Juvaderm. The pain was very minimal. I had some swelling (but nothing freaky looking) for about 48 hours or so and minimal bruising. The bruising was easily covered with a light lipstick.

My doctor told me he has found most results last about a year but if I got a "touch up" in 6 mos it can last about 1 1/2 years. My cost was $600 for the syringe. (if you are looking for extremely large lips, each additional syringe is $500) I only regret not having this done sooner!

The swelling goes down so it can seem like they are going back to normal.... for me its been about a month an they still seem great. If i ever need a reminder that its still working, I go back an look at my 'before' pictures and the change is huge!
Please let us know how long it really last-I was thrilled with mine also for about 2 weeks-while the NL folds lasted the lips went back to normal in just a couple weeks.
