Pucker up! That’s exactly what I did during a recent visit to Zona Med Spa in Scottsdale. I have always wanted fuller lips. Not that there’s anything wrong with my natural lips, I just thought they could be a little enhanced and what better timing than Valentines week?
To be honest, I was a little scared. I did my research, read the reviews, and studied tons of before and after pictures that the Zona experts were responsible for. I felt confident in Michele, the master injector at Zona so low and behold, I scheduled an appointment. The Zona Med Spa office is located off Shea and the 101 and was easy to find. The staff is attentive, friendly, and encouraging in what can be a nerve racking situation. If you’re a newbie to injections, it can be a little intimidating but the gals here made me feel right at home. Michelle numbed me up by applying a thick cream over my lips and having me sit for about 15 minutes. During this time, I reminded her red heads have an oddly low pain tolerance (really!)… and that I might cry and/or scream….she was well aware and it turns out I didn’t do either!
Once my lips were numbed up she explained everything she was doing. There were 4 “pokes”, two on my top lip, 2 on the bottom and after a little lip massage she informed me that the procedure was done. I was shocked. It wasn’t bad at all and I loved the natural looking results. Since this was my first time, we went with 1 full syringe. Many people opt for more but I prefer baby steps when it comes to stuff like this.
The thing I was shocked by was the lack of swelling. Michele is an expert when it comes to the products she uses and the fact that we went with a product with minimal swelling was perfect. It’s been a week now and I love my “new” lips and would visit Zona Med Spa again in a heartbeat. I might even go with a syringe and a half next time! Michele went over the after care and sent me home with an ice pack. There was no pain or swelling, just a tiny bruise that could be easily covered up with makeup and was gone within 2 days. Now I know what you’re really wondering…does my husband like my new pout? Of course he said I didn’t need anything done but the truth is yes, he’s a fan!
If you’re thinking about trying Botox, fillers, or are interested any other type of med spa treatment- I highly recommend a visit to Michele and her staff.
