I have wanted to diminish the lines and creases around my mouth, I have been afraid to try filler because I was afraid of having big lips and I had heard that the procedure was very painful. I finally hated the lines more than holding on to the fears. Dr, Bachelor did a fabulous job.....I am thrilled with the result!! The injections were virtually painless and the bruising was so minimal....I could cover it with lipstick. I was told to plan on 3 days of downtime, but I was fine......didn't need the downtime. I think my husband is even happier with the result than I am, if that's possible. He keeps telling me that I look great. If your lip lines are bothering you, don't hesitate....I wish I had done this sooner!
