I have no shame in my game. I have always had small lips that I hated. So when I got a promotion at my job I decided to treat myself and finally go for lip injections. I researched places in and out of the city and Hayes Valley seemed the most convenient.
My appointment was with Thena and she did a great job. Because I was scared of how I would like the results (never done any type of cosmetic procedure) I said I only wanted to do 1/2 a syringe the first time. Thena didn’t pressure me to get the full which I liked.
The actual procedure made me really dizzy and sick feeling, but that’s because I’m a mess and sensitive in general. I pass out when I get my blood drawn. Thena was really sweet and got me an ice pack and let me take a break.
Everyone at Hayes Valley Medical was really nice and gave me advice on the healing process and the girl at the front desk even gave me a free sample of some lip balm that helped with recovery. 🙂
I looked like a literal crazy duck face for a couple days after it swelled… but It actually healed without any real bruising. Go Thena!
I love my results, but I do wish I did get the full syringe. It is only a slight change for me. Oh well! Just means I will be visiting Hayes Valley again in a couple months.
Thena is who did my cheek and lip fillers! Excellent to take it slow with me and explain. Gentle and took great care in doing the work. Truly an artist and angel. THANK YOU!!!
