It works! I have always had very small lips and...
There was immediate results and very little bruising. The type of Juvederm I had injected also contained a numbing agent therefore it did not hurt too much after the first two injections.
I had my top and a little in my bottom lip injected for a total of one syringe.
There is very little pain following however there is slight numbness at the top lip. There are two small dots on either side of my lips which are easily covered with lip gloss, the pictures are on the same day as procedure. I am writing this on the day after, there is no change in the look so far.
3 days post injection
6 -7 week update
3-4 weeks post
I forgot to add
They did a great job making me comfortable during my procedure, especially with me passing out during. The owner came in and personally sat with me during the procedure, she was very nice! The person performing the procedure did a great job, she told me exactly what she was doing and what to expect. I definitely plan to go back as long as all stays well :) Okay they were very friendly when I went in but then when I went back because I was not completely pleased, the injector did not seem to listen to my concerns. She kept repeating that she had provided me with possible side effects and that the swelling will go down after a few weeks. Despite the fact I had stated several times that I was already four weeks out! Her technique/ outcome wasn't awful or anything, it would have been kind if she addressed my concerns a little more.
