It’s no secret that I love to laugh and giggle. Personally, I believe that laughter keeps you young! There’s no substitute for a good laugh, especially laughing with someone else! However, as I’ve gotten older, laugh lines on my face have gotten more visible. Aging is my least favorite thing in the world! I feel like every time I look in the mirror, there’s another new wrinkle or something new that bothers me about my face.
Up until recently, I actually had “parenthesis” on my face. Yep, parenthesis…like one on each side of my mouth! I’m NOT ok with that! Parenthesis belong on your paper and notaround your mouth!
As part of CosmetiCare’s Mom Ambassador program, I scheduled an appointment at their world-class MedSpa for some Juvederm injections in my “parenthesis” area. It’s more visible on the left side of my mouth and mostly when I’m not smiling. I guess I should just keep smiling then, right?
Before moving forward with the injections, I chatted with Kat, the technician, and we talked about what to expect. Juvederm is a When you receive Juvederm injections, the area you’re targeting is almost instantly transformed, allowing you to see results right away.
Kat explained told me that she’d be injecting the lines next to my mouth and filling them in, but that they wouldn’t be completly gone, in order to maintain a somewhat natural look and also so that your face doesn’t end up looking too full.
She gave me some ice first, to kind of numb the area. Honestly, none of it hurt so when you’re looking at my expression in this picture, I’m actually just joking!
When Kat was finished injecting, the lines were almost all gone. It was a HUGE improvement and I was so happy with my results!
Do you have any areas on your face with lines that could use a little filling in? If you don’t love the way you look, maybe you should look into getting some Juvederm at CosmetiCare’s MedSpa. Schedule a complimentary consultation with one of their technicians by calling 949.537.2381.
