Got my lip injections today, mainly for the upper lip and some lower lip for fuller look
I came in for free consultation already knowing I will pick dr park for my dr; i felt comfortable, trust him, I decided to go ahead with the injections today!
No pain, no brusing yet, some swelling but completely normal! So far I love the way my lips look so far! more
I got my lips done last week and I absolutely love them!! Dr. Park asked me what I wanted and I said a conservative injection for just a little more plumpness. He suggested only doing the upper lip to balance the upper and bottom in fullness. Before the injection he analyzed the symmetry of my lip and pointed out exactly what he was going to do if that would be the effect I desired.
He put a... more
I loved the way he used anesthetic to numb my mouth before the procedure. It was quick and almost painless procedure, I absolutely loved the results. He worked with my needs and kept the communication of what I wanted going so I would love my results My lips turned out very natural looking and I feel more beautiful. Love this doctor and his work, I plan to come back. more
My Juvederm Lip filling journey started over 2 years ago, prior to the Juvederm filler I couldn't wear lipstick without it looking like a thin , unattractive straight line, when I smiled my upper lip disappeared. I was beyond pleased with my first treatment, especially the longevity of the result . Within the last month or so my lips were looking thinner. I still had an upper lip, but... more
I have received Juvederm in the past for my lips and smile lines. I have done both xc and xc +. In my opinion, although the results don't last as long with xc, they outcome is more natural to me. I've also had radiesse injected into my midface area. As a teenager, I was very very thin from stress, as a result I lost all the fat in my face. Although I am healthy now, I wanted to restore my... more
I wanted to have my upper lip to appear fuller. My lips are not proportion at all and when I wear lipstick I didn't achieve the full lip effect I wanted. Best decision I ever made. I just wish the result would last forever because I don't want to get a lip implant. Im going to continue to get the filler injectables, because I felt very comfortable with the procedure. more
I went in for lips and nasolabial area improvement
Dr Kolstad explained my options and answered all my questions
I finally decided to do Juvederm, the result was beautiful and natural
i had almost no swelling
He is an experienced, skilled, honest, patient and considerate physician
I will go back to his office for other treatments and i highly recommend him more
I have been getting my lips injected with RESTYLANE once a year for the past 7 years with GREAT results every time. I have small, NOT POOFY lips and I get the RESTYLANE simply to smooth out the wrinkles along the outer lip line and create a TAD bit of fullness & structure to my lips. Not once in 7 years has anyone EVER asked me if I got my lips done. Never.
So I go in for my yearly "fill" and... more
I came into Dr. Kolstad's office a few weeks back after seeing tons of my female friends get injections over the years. For a few years I resisted, until one day I decided that I, too, would love to zap my happy lines (parentheses lines, haha) and maybe even fluff my naturally full, but flat and lined lips.
He and his staff were very accommodating, friendly, and prompt in returning my calls... more
I had Juverderm injections under eyes 6 days ago. The result for me is SUBTLE. I hardly can tell the difference. The Dr. must have used a little over half the syringe. I only bruised a little,noticeably from the needle mark on my right under eye.
I also bought Arnica & immediately took it after. Best to take it a few days before. See my Photos below. It's subtle perhaps because I... more
I was a patient of Dr. Palm's when she practiced in Chicago. Before she left we did a final round of fillers and botox. It looked amazing! When I needed a touch up I visited another Chicago area dermatologist and was not happy with the result. My best friend wanted filler in the lips and botox for the first time. I knew if she wanted to be 100% satisfied we needed to visit Dr. Palm in... more
I just had my first treatment of Juvederm in my lips. I LOVE it! My Dr. used numbing cream about 10 minutes before and I barely felt a thing. I was so nervous and it ended up being as easy as botox. I don't seem to have a lot of swelling - at least I hope not because I love the way my lips look right now. I took Arnica for four days prior and will continue to take it for a couple of days.... more
I had three syringes of juvederm 2 weeks ago.
I did this because I had hollows under my eyes, NL folds and marionettes. Recently I had 2 fraxels and my skin was looking good but couldn't deal with deep wrinkles.
We did the eyes first. Just a little ice under the eye and then the injections. Painless! I had a couple little dots where the needle went in but no bruising. My hollows... more
Am 37 and tired of trying to hide the severe asymmetry and scarring with heavy makeup that never works. Just broke down into tears upon seeing the immediate Juvederm results. So THIS is what I would have looked like if I'd never been born with a deformity?! This is so much better than going through another reconstructive surgery. Next time I might even have a few wrinkles filled now that I... more
This is the second time I've had Juvederm injected and I wanted to give some advice that I don't see frequently enough on this site. This is not like having a manicure. There will be downtime, so don't expect to go from the doctor's office straight to lunch with the girls. There will be swelling, small bruises at the injection sites and some soreness for days. Ice for about 3hrs after the... more
I had Juvederm injected into my "smile lines" or nasal-labial folds and it made a huge difference! I am 34 and I started noticing the lines more and more and decided that I think I'm too young to have that so, I did something about it!Dr K did a fantastic job and I noticed a huge difference. They are almost completely filled in. Plus, Juvederm lasts a long time more
I wanted to look younger, but I wasn't quite ready for plastic surgery. Because I didn't have enough fat for a transfer to my face, the doctor recommended Juverderm and the results couldn't be better.Over the course of a few months, my face was transformed. Since the change was gradual, no one knew I'd had work done but I've had numerous comments about how much younger more
I have thought about improving my apperance for years now and finally after a lot of research took the plunge. After reading on here I nearly read myself right out of doing it. I took all my questions (many) with me to the Doctor who I research throughly( also saw him on TV local news) and have had Botox done by him prior.I had two syringes for my severe nasolabial fold, creases in upper lip... more
