23 Year Old, Black Female, Lip Augmentation with Juvederm

The experience was very exciting to me. I had done tons of research and had spoken to friends who have had their lips augmented with juvederm as well. I really liked the JuvedermUltra2 and the additional numbing as well as the way that it has settled into my lips. The swelling was minimal and after the procedure I drank SO much water on the way home and kept them hydrated with Arbonne lip treatment and Carmex (alternating). They healed very well

I went to Inject Beauty at the Philadelphian in Philly and Kathleen was so friendly and most importantly a motherly type. That may not be what everyone is attracted to in this scene but it was really comforting for me because I knew that she had my desires in mind but would not let me leave her chair looking over-done or crazy. She had my best interest at heart. The pain level was low- maybe a 4 out of 10 with lidocaine topical treatment. Now for the criticism... I did show her a comparison photo (I'll attach it below) and we did not quite get there. I felt like the focus was on my top lip and my bottom lip was an after thought though she was very complimentary of my bottom lip cleavage and wanted to maintain that which I appreciate. For the look I was seeking, I likely would have needed more than one syringe (1 mL) and I understand her wanting to let them settle before adding more (as well as not wasting half a syringe if we only added an additional half to the bottom.) I do plan to return for more in December or January to "complete the look" and I will update then. Overall, there was very little swelling and absolutely no bruising. I healed very well and am thrilled with the results... for now
