I had restylane injections in my lips about 2 weeks ago. The pain was not awful, and I did not have much bruising. I was able to go back to work right after the procedure. It was really one of the best things I ever have done.
After rhinoplasty, my upper lip looked tiny. I got a full syringe, with most of it going into my top lip. It took about a week for my lips to settle, but now they look great and really natural. I am not sure how long it is going to last, but I plan on getting another syringe 3-5 months after the my first injection to keep it up.
