Getting married, need pouty lips

Hi, i am getting married after the summer and really want those pouty lips. What would you use as a filler; am i gonna get the best result with Juvederm or Restylane, or should I opt for something more permanent?

I am getting married after the summer, so I would really appreciate if anybode knew how long the different types keep their fullness?

Thanks

Juvederm and Restylane are both FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers and have similar staying power. Many doctors prefer to work with one over the other but the results are the same. Having someone with an artistic touch administering the injections is more important than choosing one product over the other so make sure you pick a doctor with skill and experience at this particular procedure.

When you first get one of these fillers you will probably have to get it redone at about 8 weeks but after your first few injections the product starts to build up somewhat so you only have to get it done 2-4 times a year, depending on how fast your body breaks it down

I've heard women say that they found one of these products lasted longer than the other but I've heard it said about both of them, so I think it's probably due to build up and chemistry with the product.

I personally wouldn't get a more permanent filler on my first time. This way you can add or subtract more as you discover how full you want them. If you didn't like them it would really suck to be stuck with them!

Also, make sure you get your last injection 1-2 weeks before your wedding so that and potential bruising has gone down! If you look at the pictures I posted (a couple threads below this) you will see what my lips looked like the first week and wow, I would not want to look at photos of that for the rest of my life! :-)

Good luck and congratulations!

I use Juvederm Ultra. It lasts longer. I am getting it done for the second time next week. It's been almost a year since I last did it. I love it

Did it cost more for the Ultra? I got Juvederm but I think it's just the regular kind :-)

Is it possible for you to try a round of something that will wear off my your wedding in case you want to make any adjustments before the big day?

Thanks This was very usefull, then I wont stress about the type of filling, but only focus on finding the best Dr

I was also thinking about starting with the injections soon, so i can "adjust" them to the right size to the wedding, so i dont get Duck Lips before the wedding. Is it a good idea to go large the first time and then adjust, or is it better to start smal and work the volume up?

I know, and I wont start with permanent fillers, but I think it is so expensive to get the fillers several times each years, but I really see your point about the no going back.

Thanks Hmm a whole year since last time, how much of the additional volume was left after that time?

I think that is the best approach I want them to be full and pouty, but not over the top, so I hope they are able to to minor adjustments that not brings the full swelling

I started with a half a vial; I think I could have gone with a full vial but they look so good at this size that more might be overkill. I look very natural right now, you would never guess they were injected but they are really luscious and full. I might try a little more next time and see how it looks but less might be more in this case; I really don't want to look "done".

I think it's easier to start with half a vial and add more later. They say the swelling is all healed within 2 weeks so you can always add more after that. I found that my bruising was gone within a week but the skin was still healing a teeny bit up to about 10 days. No pain, I could just feel that the skin was a little flakier than normal (no one else could tell but me).

Keep us posted with some pictures when you get them done!

My PS only uses Ultra so I have no idea. I can't imagine there would be a price difference.

I had Restylane in the fall (2 different injections of a "half" syringe. I let them settle then went back for more after 2 weeks).
I just had mine touched up with a half syringe of Juvederm. I found a new injector and she is FANTASTIC. My first experience was fabulous too, but this girl came highly recommended and did a little work building my cupids bow up etc. I had them done just this morning. They are PUFFY like usual, but I am in LOVE with lip injections (if done right). I loved the restylane, so I am excited to see how I like the Juvederm.
