Lip Augmentation Testimonial

Aug 21, 2016 | Beauty

Special Thanks to It’s A Secret Med Spa for letting me capture this experience.

I claimed this day to be THE MOST important day of my life all over my social media. Although that may seem a little bit dramatic, I honestly cannot think of another day that made me feel as thrilled and adventurous as the day I got my lip injections. // Decidi que este dia iba hacer el mas importante de mi vida, a pesar de que puede parecer algo dramatico, honestamente no puedo recordar en otro dia en donde me senti tan emocionada, como el dia que fui a ponerme mis inyeciones en los labios.

As I talked about it for weeks many people told me not to do it, or that I didn’t need it..Even though that was true, everyone knows I love trying new things and having some excitement in my life. Now it wasn’t all about the fun and thrills. I actually had always been a little annoyed that my top lip was so much smaller than my bottom lip. It would also disappear when I would talk or laugh. So yes, this was a cosmetic procedure I REALLY¬†wanted to try and see the difference that it would make in my appearance. //¬†Al hablar con varia gente de las inyecciones en los labios, durante semanas algunas personas me dijeron que no lo hiciera, o que simplemente no las necesitaba… Aunque eso era cierto, todo el mundo sabe que me encanta probar cosas nuevas. Ahora no se trata de diversion,emocion o curiosidad. En realidad, siempre habia sido un poco incomodo que mi labio superior era mucho mas delgado que el inferior. ¬†Tambien desaparecia cuando me reia o hablaba. ¬†Asi que esto era un procedimiento cosmetico que realmente queria probar, ¬†y ver la diferencia que haria en mi aparencia .

Now let me just tell you.. ¬†I was pretty anxious and nervous about getting my lips done. The main reason was¬†because I had heard the needles did hurt your lips. Other than that little fact about the future pain in the back of my head I think I had prepared myself for this long awaited day. Of course I brought my best friends along.. because every girl knows you need your besties by your side for moral support. //¬†Ahora dejame decirte…estaba super ansiosa y nerviosa. La razon principal era que habia oido que las agujas causaban un poco de dolor en los labios, obvio estaba algo nerviosa. Aparte de ese peque√Īo detalle sobre el dolor en mi cabeza, creo que me habia preparado para este dia tan esperado. Por supuesto traje a mis mejores amigos…..porque cada chica sabe que necesita a sus mejores amigos a su lado como apoyo fisico y moral.

As I flipped my hair and smiled for the cameras.. (literally… I had two cameras. Phones on Snapchat. Instagram Story. Video Recording.. I kinda felt how I’m sure the Kardashians feel!) I got ready for the procedure to start. The very first thing they did was numb my lips with¬†a Topical Numbing Cream. They left it there for about 10-15 minutes and let me just tell you that it really did NUMB! I accidentally got some inside my mouth and I could feel my tongue, gums, even teeth start to feel funny! It was worse when my friends kept making me laugh leading to even more cream in my mouth! //¬†Obviamente me sentia super feliz y estaba lista para empezar el proceso. ¬†Lo primero que hicieron fue adormecer mis labios con una crema topica. Lo dejaron alli durante 10-15 min. Accidentalmente la crema topica entro a mi boca , provocandome un adormecimiento en mi lengua, encias y dientes , senti rarisimo !!!!! Y fue peor cuando mis amigos me hacian reir y la crema entraba mas y mas a mi boca .

I know, ha! how funny do I look. I was told some ladies that are used to getting their lips done usually skip the numbing process. But honeyyy… I have no idea how anyone would be bold enough to do such a thing. // Lo se, jaja me veo muy graciosa. ¬†Me comentaron que algunas personas que hacen este procedimiento de inyeciones habitualmente omiten el proceso de adormecer los labios. Pero no me imagino como alguien se atreveria hacer tal cosa!¬†

After the numbing process we began the actual lip augmentation. I held my breath, squeezed Deborah’s¬†hands and Lisa started to inject. Now as soon as that first needle went in I honestly was shocked I was whining so much. Yes it did sting, but the pain lasts about 1-2 seconds and then its gone. On a scale of 1-10 I think I would rate the pain about a 3. It is a little uncomfortable and your eyes might start to water. However, I think getting my naval, ears pierced, and bleaching my hair has hurt way worse than this. So its safe to say that is pain is tolerable. //¬†Despu√©s del proceso de adormecer los labios¬†comenzamos el aumento de labios. Respire profundo,¬†aprete las manos de Deborah y Lisa comenz√≥ a inyectar. Cuando la¬†primera aguja entro a mis labios, sinceramente, me qued√© muy sorprendida. El dolor no era nada de lo que yo pense que iba a ser. El¬†dolor dura de 1-2 segundos y luego se va imediatamente. En una escala del 1-10 Creo que le dar√≠a el dolor un 3. Es un poco inc√≥modo y tus ojos podr√≠an empezar a llorar. Sin embargo, creo que la perforacion de¬†mi naval, y orejas¬†me dolio mas. As√≠ que es seguro decir que el dolor es tolerable.

I didn’t want huge lips and then regret it, so Lisa was able to outline my lips with Restylane Silk and then add volume with Juvaderm Ultra Plus Fillers. I loved that my top lip was able to be noticed now and it really did make a great difference! The techniques Lisa used were according to what I had told her I wanted, and the¬†shape of my natural lips. //¬†No quer√≠a enormes labios y luego arrepentirme, por eso¬†Lisa delinio mis labios ¬†primero con Restylane Silk y luego a√Īadio volumen con Juvaderm Ultra Plus Fillers. Me encant√≥ que mi labio superior ahora se¬†notaba y realmente hizo una gran diferencia! Las t√©cnicas que Lisa us√≥ fueron de acuerdo a lo que yo le hab√≠a dicho que quer√≠a, y la forma de mis labios naturales.

The Final Results were amazing! As you can tell I was super happy with the way my lips ended up to be, although it was a more natural look I can totally tell the difference in pictures and when I put on my lipstick in the morning. //¬†Los resultados finales fueron incre√≠bles! Como se puede notar por la foto estaba muy feliz con la manera en que mis labios terminaron, a pesar de que era un aspecto m√°s natural pude notar¬†la diferencia totalmente en fotos¬†y cuando me pongo labial en¬†la ma√Īana.

Now as far as bruising and soreness goes. I will say that afterwards they were a little sore. I was still able to eat still but I just had to be really careful, also I had to drink from a straw from the side of my mouth to make sure my lips weren’t making any effort. The picture below was the next day after my lip augmentation. As you can tell there is some¬†bruising, but it wasn’t painful or anything. I just added some lipstick and it was not noticeable at all. // Saliendo de mi cita mis labios se sentian un poco adoloridos pero podia hacer todo normal despues. De hecho, fui a¬†comer despues y¬†solo¬†ten√≠a que ser muy cuidadoso, y tambi√©n beber de un popote en¬†un lado de mi boca para asegurarme de que mis labios no estaban haciendo ning√ļn esfuerzo. La foto de abajo fue el d√≠a siguiente despu√©s de mi aumento de labios. Como se puede ver habia algunos moretones, pero no era dolorosa para nada.¬†

Now of course theres some of those popular questions that everyone has and that is why I asked for you! // Ahora, por supuesto, hay algunas preguntas populares que cada una tiene y es por eso que pregunte por ustedes!

Why choose It’s A Secret Med Spa for lip augmentation?
Lisa: At Its A Secret Med Spa we are unique in how we cater to each client individually. As an injector and artist, I specifically treat everyone like they are a blank canvas.  Their desired outcome equates to my finished work of art.
¬ŅPor qu√© elegir It’s A Secret¬†Med Spa para el aumento de labios?
Lisa : En It’s A¬†¬†Secret Med Spa somos los¬†√ļnicos que¬†atendie a cada cliente de forma individual. Como una¬†profesional en las inyeciones¬†de labios, trato a todos como si fueran un lienzo en blanco. Su resultado deseado es igual a mi obra de arte terminada.
 
What kinds of products did you use on me and why do you use these brands/products?
Lisa: I used Restylane Silk in the border of your lips using a tinting technique to engage the edges in a glossy soft appearance. Silk is the softest non volumizing  product I use. To enhance the mid lip with Volume I used Juvedern Ultra Plus via tinting technique.  Ultra plus is my favorite finishing touch to the procedure.
¬ŅQu√© tipos de productos usaste en m√≠ y por qu√© utilizaste estas marcas/ productos?
Lisa : Yo utilize Restylane Silk en el borde de tus lab ios utilizando una t√©cnica de te√Īido para enganchar los bordes en un aspecto suave y brillante. Restylane Silk¬†es el producto anti volumen y m√°s suave que uso. Para mejorar el centro del labio con el Volumen utilic√© Juvedern Ultra Plus a trav√©s de la t√©cnica de te√Īido. Ultra Plus es mi favorito toque final al procedimiento.

How long do lip injections last and how often do you have to come back? 
Lisa: When injecting, dosage equals duration therefore the more used the longer the results. However, results vary per client. If it’s a first lip augment then it may last 2-4 months using the amount I used on you. When I treat you again, and we add more product to what you already have, the results will be longer. Possible 4-7 months.
¬ŅCu√°nto tiempo duran las inyecciones de labios pasado y con qu√© frecuencia se tienen que volver?
Lisa: Cuando la inyecci√≥n, la dosis es igual duraci√≥n, por lo tanto el m√°s utilizado el m√°s largo de los resultados. Sin embargo, los resultados var√≠an por cliente. Si se trata de un primer labio augment entonces puede durar 2-4 meses usando la cantidad que utilic√© en ti. Cuando te trato de nuevo, y a√Īadir m√°s producto a lo que ya tiene, los resultados ser√°n m√°s largos. Posibles 4-7 meses.
 
What is the cost for lip injections?
Quick lip treatment averages $360.
¬ŅCu√°l es el costo de las inyecciones de labios?
El promedio del tratamiento de labios r√°pidos empieza en $360.

Can lip injections have bad side affects?
I have performed over 5000 lip treatments and have only seen 1 adverse reaction that resulted in extreme swelling.  In that case, she was treated with a steroid and her end results were still amazing.
Puede tener efectos secundarios las inyecciones de labios?
He realizado más de 5,000 tratamientos labiales y sólo he visto una reacción adversa que dio lugar en hinchazón extremo. En ese caso, fue tratada con una esteroide y sus resultados finales fueron increíbles.
