    Default I just had some fillers. Ouch!

    But the results are great even if it's temporary. I was unhappy with my ugly "marionette" lines in the corner of my mouth which made my already thin lips look even thinner and gave a generally glum expression. But bloody hell it hurts! I'm not planning on having anything else done - how can you improve perfection? - but it's worth it. Next job MAYBE some lip work, full porno pout of course.
    Anyone else taken the plunge?

    A friend of mine just did the same as you. Two hours later we went shopping together, and it started to hurt a lot. Me for my part just had nose surgery (no beauty thing though, I couldn't breathe properly) and had a gaze over my nose and we looked very funny together, both complaining all the time about how our faces hurt.

    I got fillers on my top lip, with the strict instructions to be subtle. Turned out great, used topical numbing cream before, no pain afterward.
    Funny enough, my last injection was over 2yrs ago before I moved to Miami and I swear they are still full. Even my mom said she could tell but only because she knew what my top lip looked like before.

    Next up is botox for my horizontal forehead lines. I think I'm smiling and raising my brows up a lot more since baby was born.

    i'm way too scared - at this point - to get fillers of any kind. a friend of mine got some in her top lip and she was duck-lipped for like a year!

    i'm turning 40 this year and have been lucky to have pretty much no wrinkles but i do want to try dysport? (the other one, not botox) in my forehead to smooth out the couple that i do have. i'm skeered though!

    That made me smile about the baby part.

    i've been getting juvederm (like dysport) in my marionette lines for years. i have deep folds and the juvederm helps a LOT. other wrinkles on my face are minimal and don't bother me. i do have forehead lines (i make TOO many faces when i talk) but those don't bother me so i don't get botox.

    my plastics person is very careful with the amount, she just uses one vial. it doesn't look fake at all and no one can tell.

    I would love to try some in my marionette lines. I really only have one that bothers me. The other side looks okay. But if I could afford it, I'd have my neck done.

    I've had botox in my forehead 3 times. I really liked it and need to do it again. It was weird not being able to frown but I got used to it.

    This is pretty much my experience. The lines are still there but much less pronounced which is fine as I don't think it would be possible to eliminate them completely without looking too fake and plastic. Human faces, especially (ahem) "mature" ones are supposed to have a few lines. But those marionette lines are bastards, especially as I've been blessed with very few other problem areas. I can thank my north European DNA for that. And I've always used moisturiser since the age of about 16.

    But I'm not goin to lie, the fillers do hurt a bit but it's nothing a panadol won't fix and only lasts a few hours. As for the lips, I'm not decided yet. They use a dental block apparently to numb the area. Fuuuuuuck.

    the juvederm stings but it is short-lived.

    and i do arnica (either oral or topical) per the advice of my plastics doc siince she believes it helps with swelling.

    Arnica is very effective. I took it after my breast reduction a few years ago and had no post-operative bruising or pain to speak of. Now I'm on the treadmill of no return with the fillers I'll take some for my next top up.

    I was considering fillers (stupid marionettes here too), but fell into dermarolling instead. Initially only .5 mm and .75 to even out my complexion and help with very fine lines. But now I've graduated to a 1.5 mm roller and a 1 mm dermastamp and those appear to have tightened my entire face, including marionette folds. Hurts like a bitch, but I only have to do it once a month.
