A Beautiful Smile with Juvederm

By Shelby Barone

After making having my consultation at CosemtiCare in Newport Beach, the one treatment that I never expected to myself to do is a lip enhancement. When I was talking with the consultant who helped to set-up my mommy makeover beauty plan, she asked me what were some of my facial features that were bothering me. She made me stop and think. The first thing that came to mind was how my upper lip would always disappear when I smiled.

I’ll admit that I was nervous about just the thought of having a lip enhancement done. I have read many horror stories online, and I didn’t want to have big puffy swollen looking lips. The entire staff at CosmetiCare made me feel comfortable and relaxed about the process and fully educated me on what to expect when getting a lip enhancement. Knowing ahead of time about what to expect and being educated on the process took away a lot of the fear that had been preventing me from having it done over the years.


I made my appointment to have the lip enhancement done along with enhancing my cheek bones with Voluma on the same day. The process took only about 20-30 minutes, and the results were immediate. I’ll be honest – it was slightly uncomfortable. They were able to add numbing medication and ice before each injection into my lip, but there was still some slight discomfort. After the Juvederm was equally distributed in my lips, I began to swell.


My lips were swollen for about 1-2 days, and I was able to apply ice throughout the day to help alleviate some of the redness and swellings. Once the swelling went down, I found myself having the lips that I have always wanted. They were full, voluptuous and I found myself smiling more than ever before. I result was not like I had pictured in my mind from reading tabloid magazines but subtle and simply enhanced my facial features.


The staff at CosmetiCare is the best in the industry, and I wouldn’t trust my most precious asset in the hands on anyone else. They are committed to educating their clients and helping women to feel their best in their skin. The Juvederm will last about nine months to a year depending on how fast my body metabolizes the product. It is a treatment that I will continue to have done for years to come, and I am so grateful to CosmetiCare for giving me a reason to smile more.
