Like any new experience, my first time round having my lips injected was a daunting thought.
I had always wanted fuller lips, as my top lip was bascially non-existent, however the “Duck Lip Look” seen on some celebrities was complete of a turn off!
I had seen many of our lovely cosmetic clients after their treatments and their lips were plump and subtle – enough to enhance without looking over the top. Most of them come back year after year for their top ups, and they are absolute raving fans.
So I made the decision that I would be next! I booked my appointment with Dr. Gina at our Mullaloo salon, and though I was pretty apprehensive, she made me feel calm and comfortable the whole way through.
I can’t lie – the top lip doesn`t tingle… it’s actually pretty painful! But with the numbing cream, Dr. Gina’s soothing and the fact that the whole thing took about three minutes, it was definitely manageable!
Skindeep Therapists Racheal and Sam also love their enhanced lips!
Even when I first looked at them, the shape and definition was perfect. There was a little bit of swelling, which went down in a day, leaving my lips the perfect shape and fullness. I had ‘pin point bruising’ in a few areas, but I was prepared for this after my consultation and was able to cover it up with mineral make up. It all went away within a couple of days
I absolutely LOVE the look of my lips with dermal fillers. It looks completely natural – in fact most people don’t even notice, because they never took note of what my lips looked like previously.
I feel confident with how they look for every day, but when I put my usual lipstick on – that’s when I start receiving the most amazing compliments about my lips.
To me, it wasn’t about the ‘Duck Face’ or Pamela Anderson lips – they look fake and overdone to me. Enhancements are done well when people notice something fresh and different about me, but not to pin point that I’ve “had something done”!
I’m a raving fan of this treatment now and only need to have them toped up once a year, so it’s affordable, safe and long-lasting. I am SO happy with my results, and would love to chat more to you if you’re thinking about lip enhancements for yourself. You can find me at the Skindeep Mullaloo salon most days!
