Smile Restylane First time! pics up

Did Restylane for the first time 2 days ago. Love it so far! I did about 3/4 of the syringe. I'm sure I will have the rest put in when I go for a follow up in 2 weeks. Didn't want to over do it to start pictures up

Wow ! I saw your pics! Those are some beautiful lips!

I think you should keep the 1/4 of the syringue for another area of the face (if needed) because they look so perfect now!!!!

I am getting Juvederm retouch next week!!! So excited!

You look amazing! I have no lips at all and would love just a little added volume. Do they charge by the syringe? How painful would you say it is? You had beautiful lips before, I bet they will look more amazing in a few days.

This time it was only $350 per syringe! Typically it's anywhere from $400-550 per syringe.
The actual injections didn't hurt at all. They use numbing cream on your lips prior, which helps allot! They were pretty sore the following day though.

They look great! Can I ask, why did you choose Restalyne over Juvederm? My PS has told me that Juve Ultra+ is the "best" for lip aug...but now I'm wondering if I should try restalyne since it's cheaper! $350 a syringe is great...much better than the $550 I pay.

My friend actually works at the med spa and she suggested restylane. She has tried both juvederm and restylane and said the results were better with the restylane. I just took her advice and went with what she said
Also it was only a one day thing for $350 per syringe "holiday special" otherwise it's $400-$550!

Both! More on top though. Its a female nurse at medspa that does it. Not sure if you went to a male or female, but it seems that women have a more gentle touch, especially with such a delicate area

I had both male and female, the first time i had to run to the bathroom i though i was going to pass out from him putting the needles inside my mouth just from the nerve block. did u get the berve block or did they just numb you topically first. how are you liking them since the swelling has gone down. I always love them at first when they are big but then i get used to the too quick and want them bigger lol!

No I didn't have the nerve block, only the topical numbing. The injections didnt hurt at all, but later that night after lidocane wore off I could feel the nerves in my lips firing....
Now that swelling has gone down I feel like I should have just done the full syringe. I'm going to have the rest put in at my follow up in 2 weeks I love them though and I'm happy I did it

I'm going in for consult in February? So you have to follow up after two weeks?

I'm not sure if everywhere does... They just want to make sure you're happy with the way they settled. And touch up any areas if needed.
