Good Morning beautiful ladies! I’m 45 years old and not getting any younger so anything I can to help slow down the aging process I’m all in! I decided I wanted to do lip fillers about 6 months ago because I noticed my lips had become slightly thinner with some fine lines around the edges. I know a few people who had done lip filler and were very happy with it so I was on the hunt to find the perfect place. My worst fear was this: I would end up looking like some people you see walking around Dallas with crazy big ‘duck lips’ and this was the furthest thing from what I wanted. I knew I had to do my research to find the absolute best person in Dallas that would make my lips look fuller in a natural and pretty way.
SHOP MY LOOK:
I’ve been going to Enlighten Medical Spa a little over 2 years for botox and photo facials. In fact, you may have seen my post on the photo facial I had at Enlighten about a year ago, it literally took years of sun damage off of my face and chest. You can check out that post titled: PHOTO FACIAL REVEAL to see the results, they were phenomenal!!
I have been working with Danah from Enlighten for about 6 months now and she is truly the best person I’ve ever worked with! She’s done my botox and has a special way of doing it, she lifts my eyes and brows perfectly leaving me looking youthful and natural, not fake and overdone. Danah has been doing lip fillers for over 7 years and I had talked to several people she had worked on and they were beyond happy with the results. She’s known for making people look younger in a natural way so I knew there was no way I would walk out of her office with awful ‘duck lips’!

She injected Juvederm into my lips which only took about 15 – 20 minutes by the way. The entire procedure takes about 1 hour because you have to sit with numbing cream on for about 45 minutes before the procedure. Enlighten has the best numbing cream and this was very important to me because I have a very low tolerance for pain! The best part, Enlighten has one of the best clothing boutiques in Dallas so while your numbing you can shop too!!
4 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE GETTING LIP FILLER:
1.) DO YOUR RESEARCH:
If you live in Dallas, you don’t need to any because I did it for you, you’re welcome! Danah from Enlighten truly is the best person in Dallas to perform lip filler, she’s like an artist and really takes her time when injecting your lips to make sure they turn out perfectly! If you don’t live in Dallas I recommend searching the internet for local medical spas that perform this procedure and when you find someone read their testimonials and look at the before and after pictures of people they’ve worked on. In addition to this, I would ask to actually talk to a few of their patients to make sure they’re happy with the results, this is key to ensure you get someone who really knows what they’re doing.
2.) THERE IS ZERO DOWNTIME:
I had my lips done on a Monday and actually had a Christmas party that evening. Although my lips were slightly swollen and I had minimal bruising on them I was able to easily cover that up with lipstick and attend my party feeling confident and beautiful with my subtlely enhanced lips!
3.) THE SWELLING IS MINIMAL AND WILL GO DOWN AFTER 2-3 WEEKS:
As soon as I got my lips injected I was so happy with them, the results are immediate which is so amazing! Even though my lips were a bit swollen I loved the way they looked. I would say the swelling completely goes down after about 2-3 weeks. At that point, you can and should schedule an appointment to go back in and get them adjusted if needed, like if one side is fuller than the other. I went back in for my 2-week touch-up and my lips needed no touch-up, they were perfectly even and I loved the way they looked – thank you, Danah!
4.) IT TYPICALLY LASTS A YEAR:
The good news about having Juvederm injected into your lips is that lasts a fairly long time. These fillers should last about a year which means the maintenance is not a big deal since it doesn’t have to be done very often.
You may be asking how much this procedure costs. Well, it depends on how many syringes of Juvederm you use, I only used a little over a half of one by the way. The cost of this procedure starts at $595 but if you ask for Danah and tell them Heather Anderson referred you Enlighten will give you 15% off!
If you’ve been thinking about doing your lips but weren’t sure about it I hope what I’ve shared with you helps. As always feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions via email!
My faux shearling denim jacket is by Blanknyc which means the price point is amazing and the quality is high! This is a fabulous jacket to wear in the cooler months because of the cozy sherpa lining. I love the super cool distressing on this light wash denim jacket making it anything but ordinary! The best part, I found this jacket on crazy SALE at Nordstrom Rack for under $75!! It runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.
DENIM REVIEW: My slimming jeans are by Agolde and they’re available at Revolve. This straight leg and high waisted style of denim is going to HUGE in 2019! They’re uber high-waisted so they make your legs look long and slim and I’m obsessed with the faded light denim wash, so perfect for spring! These are made of more of a rigid type of denim so they don’t have that much stretch to them which means they hold their shape very well which is always something I look for in a good pair of denim. They run true to size, I’m wearing a size 25.
