I’ve always wanted to try injectables. I’d love a more bee stinged pout. My only concern is, after the injectable reduces (I looked into Rejuvaderm), will my lips be deflated and less full than they were originally?
What has been your experience? If you don’t have an experience, would you ever consider trying it?

@LilRhodyGem: There wasn’t an “all of the above” option 😉
But to answer your question, yes: in my experience, my lips look slightly deflated when the Juvederm wears off……but that is because I get like 2-3 syringes per session and those puppies are BIG when I leave. If you just did the normal one syringe for both lips, I highly, highly doubt that would happen to you.
I pay $450 per syringe at my plastic surgeons office and it typically starts to wear off after 6 or 8 months. I haven’t had them done since November (9 months) so it’s pretty much all gone from my top lip right now.
I also am a big fan of filler throughout the face, as well as Botox.

@badabing88: What made you start dabbling in injectables? From your other posts I recall you are still in your twenties, right? I’m 35 and I’m afraid that if I start now, I may never stop.
Thanks for the heads up on the lips. I might have to try it if it’s unlikely to affect my original lip volume with just one syringe. How fun!

@LilRhodyGem: I’ll be honest: seeing how other people around me aged, and seeing how starting to use fillers at 50 is too late :-/ I figure prevention is the best medicine.

@LilRhodyGem: I do not want any injectables (I am 34) however I do want this “Lifestyle Lift” thing. Enven in my 30’s I have noticed that my very chubby cheeks are getting the little bit of sag that every woman in my family gets. And no, I do not mean like saggy boobs, but your face does drop a little when you have had a full face all your life, fat or thin. I also, some day, plan to have a boob lift. The good Lord blessed me with a nice set and I never want them to hang to my waist.

@LilRhodyGem: I would never do but I didn’t care about others until I see how my a few friends who have been injecting for a longer time turn into freaks over time. They looked beautiful for the first a few injections. A little later, deflate, get a little more, and repeat. It still looked fine for a few years. Years later, none of them look good honestly. The problem is, they do not recognize how ugly they became. Somehow all they got a weird thing that they can’t stand a little deflation so they look like balloons. People around them try to tell them gently to stop, but it’s hard to tell bluntly. And while their friends are being indirect, their doctors and people in the group compliment a lot and they believe. But seriously, I observed this out of my friends too. Please be careful. The friends I’m talking about, they started in their twenties and they are between late thirties – early forties. It’s darn early to turn into a freak!

@MrsBrown13: I would like to get breast implants someday because 1) I have a very small chest and 2) I have lost a lot of weight so my small chest looks like withered flapjacks when unaided. But talk is cheap so we’ll see what really happens down the road. I’d only want to replace my small chest with an equally flattering small breast size so I “match.” Anyways… who knows.
@Mee: I don’t hzve many friends who do injectables but I have seen the puffy faces and plastinated women out around town. I can spot them easily and I don’t envy the look.
So last night after work I stopped by the drugstore and bought a nude lip pencil. I penciled my lips in and put a clear gloss on top. My lips looked fab so I think I’ll stick with that for now because I don’t want to screw up a good thing. Should my lips ever truly flatline, I’ll think more about injections. Until then, I will probably remain fascinated by injectables.
