I had been thinking about doing lip filler but was nervous because I didn’t want them to be too big. I kept thinking about it, but could never get the courage to do it. I was worried about looking fake or overdone. I believed that anyone who got their lips done would look like Kylie Jenner or have these gigantic lips. That is indeed a myth. I know this first hand, because I had mine done at The Laser Image Company.
I was very nervous, being that I was totally new to injectables and didn’t want it to be obvious that I had had something done, well in a bad way. I finally bit the bullet and went for it. I was super nervous, but the nurse explained the whole process to me and assured me that I would love them and I would be fine
She educated me on the different filler options, which I had never known about. From Volbella and Silk which are used to fill the tiny “smoker’s lines” or add very subtle volume to Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and Vollure which are meant to add more volume and fullness. She started by applying numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable. After about 15 minutes some ice was place on the area and before I knew it, the process was complete.
For a day or two after the procedure, my lips were swollen and a bit dry. I initially thought, “Why did I do this?” but by the end of the second day, I loved them. I had a few tiny bruises on my lips, which is totally normal and they were easily covered up with lipstick. I actually went out the next night. My lips felt fine and continued to change over the next two weeks, just as the nurse said they would. By the two week point, I was obsessed and couldn’t stop looking them. I get compliments on my lips and people tell me how natural they look. Now I even want more.
