My lips were done with a novacaine block from a dentist. But since then I've had them retouched and it has always gone well. I feel that the best advice is to find someone with makeup tatoo and find out who did the work. READ COMMENT

I don't remember the sclerotherapy cost. It was about 15 years ago and it was saline. Yes I will do a test area and report. Probably going down in Nov. for the treatment. I try to do something every year to improve my appearance... READ COMMENT

Self tanners are not so great for me because I have a lot of brown spots which really show up with self tanner. They get darker. I find the best results with Sally Hanse leg makeup. It really evens everything out but still does not... READ COMMENT
