I Had RHA Lip Injections Today 💋

I've lost volume in my lips as I've aged and always said this is the one area I definitely had a desire to one day cosmetically augment.

 

Well today was the day, and I am beyond pleased. I barely can express my total and extreme pleasure with the results. I've been losing volume and definition on the outer corners of my lower lip, resulting in what I call a kewpie doll look. I hated how that looked. And of course the overall plumpness in both my  top and bottom lips has lessened with age as well.

 

I wanted an understated yet natural procedure that would give me back my younger  looking lips. 

 

I'd heard about RHA, (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid) and was referred to an Aesthetician while visiting with my sister. We had a consultation Tuesday and scheduled the procedure today. I was very impressed with her total viewpoints...less is more and a goal to achieve a natural appearance for her clients. 

 

RHA is said to last longer than other available fillers. Some say as long as 18 months depending on the location. With lips, possibly up to a year.

 

I also had a small amount of Botox injected in the cheek muscle that affects that downward curve on the corners of our mouth, that gives an angry look. This may have to be repeated in 3 months. But I can see a slight difference just since late this afternoon. 

 

Has anyone else had an RHA filler? What were your results?

Thanks @JudyL . She put a little Vaseline on my lips after the procedure, which really wasn't bad, btw.

Looks good. I've never had much in the lip department and mine are a bit lop-sided.

Very impressive.  How much pain is involved?  Was there any pain after the numbing medicine wore off?  You described what I said a few months ago about my lips...they were getting "shorter".  Shorter as in the color is disappearing from the corners, in.  I don't think I notice any less plumpness, rather the color doesn't go out to the corner as much as it used to.  If I could have anything done, it would be my undereye puffiness.
