A growing trend in the cosmetics industry is the transparency to discuss injectables like Botox and Restayln for both men and women however all too often some of the results can be frighting. I was recently invited into Vibrant Skincare And Laser Center in Frisco, Texas to discuss mens injectables and get an insight into what makes a well executed mens lip enhancement. I visited Courtney at her Dallas metro-plex based med spa Vibrant Skincare And Laser Center earlier this year to review the Halo Laser skin resurfacing facial (check out the laser facial treatment here). I knew that after a great experience with the Halo Laser I could trust Courtney’s extensive medical knowledge with my lip injections. Courtney is a Nurse Practitioner with a Masters degree from Emory University and well versed in the injectable industry, only using approved injectables that are the best in the industry which yield the best results.
After my consultation with Courtney and discussing my apprehensions we reviewed some photos of lip injections I liked as well as some that I was worried about looking like. Once Courtney eased me through my concerns we began the numbing process with lidocaine for about 45 minutes.
Using Restalyn Silk on the vermillion boarders of the lips Courtney is able to create the desired shape to the lip before following up with Restylane to add volume. Another popular choice for lip enhancements is Juvaderm however Courtney suggestions Restylane for a softer finish to the lips.
Pricing for lip injections will varry depending on where you choose to seek treatment however Vibrant Skincare And Laser Center offers prices are much lower than other med spas, and offers membership programs for even better deals. One syringe of Restylane Silk is priced at $525 and will last for an aprox 8-10 months depending on your lifestyle.
Overall I was extremely pleased with my lip enhancement experience with Courtney at Vibrant Skincare and Laser Center because she was gentle, comforting and delivered on the results I was looking for. After the lip injection treatment I was lightly swollen however was supplied an ice pack that helped keep the swelling down immediately after the treatment. The next day swelling was very minimal and bruising was slightly detectable however easily covered with a tinted lip balm.
After two days the minimal swelling and light bruising was gone and my lips looked full and healthy. I love that Courtney was able to enhance my lips and keep them looking natural and full. What do you guys think? Let me know on Instagram
