Ok, I had never done any kind of cosmetic procedure except a laser treatment in my derm office to ward off oncoming Rosecea redness and blood vessels.
My gf whom is 30 gets botox and loves it. Me, I couldn't think of doing it until one day I realized I wanted fuller lips. I made the appt and in two weeks went to a well known clinic here in Portland, OR.
I was TERRIFIED. I'm not afraid of needles per say but I guess I was more worried about the after. I was worried about looking like a duck.
The consultation and the people were made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. They put numbing cream on my face (no dental block) because they say the dental block can kind of distort your face and possibly giving undesired results.
I had about a total of 12 injections. The needle hurt sometimes but I would say its the Juvederm that smarts a bit. I have a high pain tolerance too. BUT, that said, I would do it again because I LOVE MY RESULTS. I didn't get too much but just enough that you can tell something is different (if you are not me)but not really know what it is.
I did bruise a bit but thats because I take alot of Ibprofin for my constant headaches. I didn't take any for a few days prior... nor did I have any red wine.
I had just my top lip done.
Bottom line: LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
Very caring and made me feel comfortable. Asked alot of questions and didn't rush me.
