I was recently back to visit my friends at Germantown Aesthetics for some filler fun! This time I was getting a little bit of filler in my lips because I have really thin lips naturally and I like just a little something in there to give them some volume. I also wanted to try some filler along my jawline because I’ve always had a weak jawline and I wanted to angle it up a bit. I’m also a huge fan of PRP (you can read my vampire facial post here), so I wanted to get some of my body’s own PRP injected under my eyes for crepey-ness and dark circles.
First we addressed my lips – I have always had really thin lips (especially my top lip) and I like to get my borders done with filler to pop the top lip up a bit and restore volume. We also did a little bit in my bottom lip to make sure they match. I feel like with lips, less is more. I don’t want duck lips, I just want a little pout since I basically have no upper lip otherwise. We used Juvederm Ultra Plus for my lips and used one syringe between my top and bottom lips. The cost for one syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus ranges from $500-750 depending on where you are located, if there are any specials, etc.
This is an area that I’ve never treated before (besides jade rolling the hell out of it), but I’ve always hated my jawline and chin area. I have a really bump jawline, not a sharp one, and I wanted to see if some fillers could help this area. This is probably my favorite area that I got treated with fillers because I can tell such a difference in how defined my jawline is now. For this area we used one syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus between the jawline and my marionette lines (smile lines on the side of the mouth). You can see in the above photo a before and after of my jawline and how it looks so much better now! Again, the cost of the Juvederm Ultra Plus ranges from $500-750 a syringe depending on several factors.
PRP INJECTIONS UNDER EYES
If you want to make a slight difference under your eyes but don’t want to opt for traditional dermal fillers, you should really consider PRP injections. PRP is short for Plasma Rich Platelets and these come from your own blood which is drawn from your arm and centrifuged down. PRP injections under the eyes isn’t going to add any volume because it’s just your body’s own plasma, but it will regenerate the under eye area and help with dark circles, crepey-ness, and other under eye issues. PRP can essentially be injected anywhere in the body and it is used a lot for vampire facials because it is considered “liquid gold” when it comes to regeneration of cells and tissues (including your skin).
