I have lines above my upper lip that make me think I look old(er). When I went to the doctor's office it was recommended that I get injections along my lip line to soften the lines. I decided to try it and I am very happy with the result.
Getting an injection in your lip is going to be painful even with a topical. Some people are more sensitive than others. The pain was very temporary. The lines are still there but not nearly as noticable to me. I feel like the calendar has gone back at least five years. I was told that there could be bruising and swelling so I was prepared for that. No one at my office even noticed the next day so it could not have been that bad. I had this procedure to please myself and I am much happier with what I see in the mirror now. Even with the initial pain, swelling, and bruises I will do this again as needed.
