Tomorrow I am having a small amount injected along my upper lip and in the corners of my mouth. I go half an hour early so they can put a numbing cream on me - I am nervous but excited. Anyone else have it injected there? How bad was the pain?
I figure if I can handle the recovery of breast augmentation (done on Feb 15) i can handle this?!!! I also had Juvederm injected in my N/L lines when I was under anesthesia and I love it. He wanted me awake for the lip area tho.
Let me know what you think of the Juvederm. Did it hurt you much? I had it done today with a dental block. It didn't hurt at all but I'm really sore and kinda swelled. I'm anxious to see how it looks in a few days. Did you have the Ultra or Ultra Plus?
Well if you had a dental block that explains why it did not hurt!
A dental block - will block all feeling in the areas they would inject.
I had the JD in my N/L folds while under general anesth. for a breast aug. I did bruise, and the bruises took atleast a week to fade - but I had NO pain whatsover and I think it looks good - tho I doubt anyone will notice because N/L's tend to kinda sort of be a part of most people's faces.
I opted against having the JD in my lip and mout area - was concerned about how radical it might look and then if I was unhappy there is no turning back. So I have no idea how painful it is without a dental block.
I guess I am the only one, maybe just really sensitive. I had taken major pain pills, and valium,and had dental block. the face folds didnt hurt, but oh my god the upper lip juvederm injections hurt like f*ck!
Lips look sexy tho.
And so did the botox in the forehead! Ow!!!! My forehead still hurts 3 days later and it freaks me out that I can't move my eyebrows!! It sucks!
I had Juvederm and Botox injections at the same time. A numbing cream was applied on the areas where the Juvederm was to be injected. I had 4 shots each along the nasolabial folds and about 5 very quick shots to the upper lip area. It did sting in the upper lip area when I was being injected, enough to make me wince a little bit. I wanted to do the lower lip but was worried that it would be too big. After I saw how the upper lip area softened and went down after about 1 week, I wish I'd tried the lower lip too.
The Botox was injected in forehead (brow area) and under eye to soften crow's feet. Tiny needle and barely felt it. Was amazed at how well this soften horizontal lines in forehead and around eyes.
I was injected with 1 syringe of Juvederm total and think I actually could have taken more to really fill in N/L folds, but thought it still made a
difference. Would definitely get the injections again.
I had Botox and Juvederm done this morning. For the Botox, a numbing cream was used and for the Juvederm, I was given Novocaine shots. Neither procedures hurt. There was slight stinging for the Juvederm, but my eyes barely even began watering. I thought it was a breeze. It's been two and a half hours and the Novacaine is finally starting to wear off. I would not have wanted to have it done without the Novocaine.
