So I finally took the plunge my friends!
I have been talking about getting lip fillers for almost five years now. After finally finding the best place to get my botox and other facial needs done aka The Laser Lounge Spa of Sarasota I knew it was time to go for it!
As I have said in my previous blog posts on botox, The Laser Lounge Spa of Sarasota, Jeff Goldstein (Owner) is amazing and all of his work is perfection so I knew if I were to get anything done it would be through him and The Laser Lounge Spa of Sarasota.
Juvederm is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Each product in the Juvederm collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips.
The Laser Lounge Spa of Sarasota carries Juvederm Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, Voluma XC, Vollure XC and Volbela XC. They also offer Radiesse fillers. Jeff decided to go with Juvderm Ultra Plus XC for my lip fillers since I already have pretty large lips.
We began the procedure with Jeff asking me if I would like to be numbed by topical cream or a dental block. He explained to me what the difference was which is the topical numbing cream goes on the outside of the skin while the dental block is done by injecting numbing agents into the sensory nerves in the lips and is the stronger method. I decided to go with topical numbing cream since I have had work done before and know I can handle a little pain here and there. It was definitely nice to have the option though!
The procedure itself took about 20 minutes. We ended up using one full syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC. The pain honestly was minimal and was only felt on the top part of my lip areas. I did bleed a little more than usual because I wasn't able to drink as much water as I normally do throughout the day. I have been so busy lately sometimes I forget to even eat lunch!
The results were immediate but I was warned about the second day of swelling and to make sure to ice on and off for the next two days. Like before when I got my Laser IPL done The Laser Lounge Spa of Sarasota provided an ice ball for me to take with me so I could ice my lips on the ride home.
Final verdict. My first thought is why did I wait so long to get lip fillers! Then I remembered how long it took me to find an amazing company to even get my botox at! My recommendation to you if you are planning on getting lip fillers... Do your research! Find the right location for any of your cosmetic surgery. You want to feel comfortable with where you go. Jeff and his staff always have me smiling and laughing and before I know it my procedure is over! I will admit that is so hard to find but it is worth the wait to find that before getting any work done!
For pain I would put it right above getting botox. As long as you are numbed correctly it is minimal pain. Also alot of people think of lip fillers as something Pamela Anderson or playboy bunnies get. Now don't get me wrong you can totally get your lips large and in charge! If that is what you are into go for it! Lip fillers are also used for people who have thin lips and this allows them to have normal size lips after the procedure. For me I wanted a little something in-between. I wanted it to be noticeable and I have large features so I wanted my lips to match.
Now for cost, the Laser Lounge Spa of Sarasota is very affordable. My one syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is $499 per syringe and results last for up to a year.
If you live in Sarasota or even Tampa (worth the drive) I highly recommend checking out Jeff Goldstein at The Laser Lounge Spa of Sarasota. He looks at your face like a work of art and will make sure you get exactly what you are looking for.
Also I had a ton of emails about my Botox and Laser IPL. Please do not feel shy to shoot me an email if you have any questions on Lip fillers or even The Laser Lounge Spa of Sarasota. I am open book and love to share my experiences with the world.
