Lips, Lips, Lips!
Volbella, have you heard of it? It is one of Allergan’s newest fillers and it is INCREDIBLE! I got my first Volbella injections to my lips in March of 2017. Our Expert Injector, Nurse Nualla prides herself in avoiding the duck lip and making your pout look fuller, but like you simply added a lip plumping lip gloss- that lasts for a year. Natural is her goal and natural are your results, see for yourself in my before and after photos!
Now for your questions that I know you must have:
- Does it hurt?
The lips are a very sensitive area, we know this! But Nurse Nualla applies a numbing agent to your lips and lets them get good and numb prior to any injections, on top of that the injection itself has numbing in it so you truly don’t feel anything but that first TINY prick of a needle. I remember bracing myself and then thinking, “Oh, that was it?” In other words- it’s extremely tolerable!
- Will I swell or bruise?
With any injection there is always a possibility of swelling and bruising. Let Nualla know if you bruise easily so she is aware, and also we can provide ice packs to take with you if needed, always use it with a cloth or gauze around it though! I didn’t swell enough to be noticeable except by me because I know what my lips look like, but that went down in 1 day!
- Are you sure I won’t look like a duck?
Nurse Nualla will discuss with you prior to any injections to see what your wants and needs are! She can also show you how it looks between fillings so you can see what is going on. Her goal is to keep you looking natural but to also achieve fuller lips since that is why you are coming in any way!
- How much do I need?
When you purchase Volbella, the whole syringe is yours to use! Nualla will fill your lips based on your wants and needs and you can come back within 2 weeks for touch ups if you have leftovers in your syringe and decide you want a little more!
- What if it looks uneven?
Come in and see us! We want YOU to be happy with your results, we will go over your before and after photos with you and can discuss touch-ups and options to make sure it’s exactly what you want!
- Can I go back to work or out and about right after?
Minus the slight possibility that you might be a little swollen, you should be good to go!
