Amazing Experience Getting Lip Fillers at The Powder Room in Port Credit
Procedure specific satisfaction rating
I had such an amazing experience at The Powder Room in Port Credit. The staff is so kind and caring. The procedure I had done were lip fillers and I have now gone twice to see the lovely Dr. Kelly Carr.
The first time I went to the powder room, I was advised to just start building the lips and not to go overboard at first, which can result in a poor outcome of an overfilled looking lip. Restylane is the trade name of the filler I had, which has a specific formulation of non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid. It has made my lips plump for well over the given amount of time of 6 months. It has given my lips a more full appearance that compliments my face very nicely.
I was recommended to the Powder Room by a friend who personally attested that Kelly really knows what she is doing and makes you feel confident in her work. The first time I went to go for a visit I was greeted by the lovely receptionist who took me in to the back of the lovely office. The decor is also an additional bonus that absolutely stunning with pinks and purple hues that suits the name. Once I was settled in the back on a reclined chair, Kelly came in and we discussed together what would look best. As I gave my input she also gave me her professional opinion which I really liked. Once we agreed on a shape and approximate amount, she began to numb my lips with a topical cream. In addition to the topical cream she also applied to the lips an ice pack to help with the numbing process. After about 10 minutes of letting the cream soak into my skin, Kelly started injecting the filler and I could hardly feel a thing, which was a relief to say the least. The entire injecting process took approximately 20 minutes and I had a total of .8 of a syringe injected over the course of 2 visits.
The aftercare was easily manageable by anyone, I was not to go to work out for 2 days after the procedure and to avoid sucking though straws. I had minimal bruising with this procedure just a tiny bit on the lower lip as it is “meatier” I also felt the needle a bit more when being injected in the lower lip vs. the top lip. My lips felt completely healed and back to normal feeling after 2 weeks.
I was completely happy about my entire experience and with the results. I paid a total of $400 and had this procedure done last spring. At the time I was 22. I would highly recommend the Powder Room to anyone in the GTA as well as Kelly and the other 2 lovely doctors she works with.
