I have always had full lips, but as Ive hit my mid-20s, Ive noticed that my lips have started disappearing. I went for a consultation with Dr Scott Barker in Cape Town, as I had heard great things about him.
On my first visit I went in convinced that I wanted Restalyn Silk - but after talking to Dr Barker, he convinced me that Juvederm Volbella was the better option as it lasts much longer (18-24 months) and was much more natural. I also wanted to get 2ccs' , but he let me know that it was better to do 1cc,wait, and then see if I needed/wanted more. The procedure was relatively pain free and I was immediately ecstatic with the results. During the next few days the swelling subsided (much to my disappointment, despite knowing this was going to happen) and I decided to make another appointment. This time, Dr Barker decided that, for what I was wanting, Juvederm Voluma would be suitable. Again, the procedure was painless ( I opted for a dental block). This time round there was Barely ANY swelling an NO bruising.
I am beyond happy with the results and I have Dr Barker to thank! If you are thinking of getting this done, feel free to ask questions :)
