My upper lip has been very thin so I decided to get lip injections through a doctor my mother goes to very often. He was very nice and made me very comfortable. The procedure was quick, I was done in about 10 minutes. The doctor had me ice my lips before beginning and through out the procedure, he also gave me arnica tablets to dissolve before to help prevent bruising. The restylane had lidocaine mixed in so it helped with pain and I am a sissy when it comes to shots. I had 1 cc or 1 full need injected into my upper lip. After the lidocaine wore off the pain became very awful. I felt like someone had punched me in the mouth. The swelling was very bad the first day and the following morning, I was mortified. Now that most of the swelling has gone down I am very disappointed in the results for the amount of money I spent. I feel like my lips don't look any different. I will not do this again and do not recommend.
