21 Year Old's Experience With Juvederm Lip Fillers
I'm 21 years old and have had Juvederm injections twice. Both rounds of injections were in my lips and I had 1 syringe injected each time. The treatments were spaced 5 months apart and I had them done by two different nurses.
First Round of Juvederm Injections
The first time I had Juvederm Ultra injected into my lips, the treatment was done by nurse Alesya at Contour Clinic in Minneapolis, MN. Alesya used medical grade numbing cream on my lips, which worked amazingly well. My lips were so numb that I started to drool on myself! She also offered me laughing gas, but I did not feel it was necessary because of how well the numbing cream worked.
Alesya ended up injecting almost a full syringe of Juvederm and I only felt a small pinch when the needle punctured my skin. I was extremely swollen the night of, and the day after, my injections, so you should keep this in mind when scheduling your appointment.
I paid $650 for 1 syringe of Juvederm Ultra.
I have included before and after pictures of my Juvederm injections with Alesya, so you can compare them to the second Juvederm treatment I had.
Second Round of Juvederm Injections
The next time I received lip fillers, I went to Leo at Touch and Glow Medspa in Phoenix, Arizona. The only difference between this procedure and my first one, was that Leo used something called a cannula to inject the filler. He preferred using a cannula, because he said it more evenly distributes the filler and causes less bruising. Personally, I did not notice much of a difference between my first round of injections and the ones Leo did. However, I loved my lips just as much as the first time around.
I ended up paying $700 for a syringe at Touch and Glow.
I have attached my before and after photos with Leo, so you can compare them to what Alesya did.
Overall Thoughts on Juvederm Ultra Injections
I am completely in love with Juvederm Ultra for my lips! It gave me the most beautiful, plump lips, but without looking too fake! Even as a young 21 year old, I love filler!
