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
I had juvederm plus injected in the cheeks to remove the hollows. I am going on 51 and I thought a little botox along with Juvederm would help.This is my third day and I still have slight swelling butI am waiting a week or so to see the true improvements. I have a follow up appointment in two weeks.I am going on three days and I am wondering whether I can drink a glass of more
First off I had to put a deposit down at this doctors office (which should have been a red flag right away) just for a consultation.My whole experience was odd, he gave me a lidocane shot twice which made my face balloon up right away and said that was normal. Then proceeded to have me lying down flat and then stood behind me like he was going to give me facial to administer the injections. I... more
I am only 29 and had nasolabial folds that really bothered me. I had juvederm injected during another surgical procedure and when I woke up, I immediately could see the difference and was happy. I hardly had any bruising. In fact, I don't know if the marks I woke up with were from the marker or the injection site because by the time I washed my face, which was about a day later, they were gone. more
An hour and a half a counting. I just had one syringe of Juvederm injected into my nasolabial folds and the downturned corners beneath my lips. So far I'm pleased: the results look natural. The skin looks smoother (but no freakishly smooth) and I look refreshed and about 3-4 years younger. I'm 45. The injections were tolerable. The doctor numbed me beforehand with a topical gel and then used... more
