After reviewing doctor’s in San Francisco for lip fillers I decided on a surgeon. For some reason I wanted to check out Yelp one more time so I did a search for lip fillers and came across Laser Away. I read reviews and checked out the site; they offer a lot of services all which seemed to be pretty impressive. I only takes a second to request a consultation via the website. About a minute... more
I was chatting with on Instagram, her lips were gorgeous so I asked her about them and she told me to see Dr. Struck, "He's the best" I have a great injector, but he's pricey so I figured I'd try Struck. Glad I did! I was so at ease, he's wonderful. The injections were painless and results beautiful. Better yet I got a syringe of juvederm a syringe of juvederm ultra and 30 units (I think) of... more
I received filler for my nasolabial folds and upper lip this past February 2015. I have to admit that I was pretty nervous about having this done, but took the leap of faith. Dr. Ransom was very receptive to my request of being “conservative” with the amount used on my upper lip for a cupids bow effect. He used a small amount of product but it was utilized so artistically and... more
Ended up with two completely different cheeks and too much filler in the nasolabial lines. The fillers can give very good results if your doctor know what he is doing.
Dr. Christopher Manios ( Danville, CA) is a very very bad doctor. He doesn't know what he is doing! I went to Dr. Manios for cheeks augmentation and nasolabial folds. First visit: he put 1 syringe of Juvederm voluma in each... more
I had very mixed results with Juvederm and would not have it injected again.
At 41, I had developed lines in the nasolabial folds. At that time, the lines did not form full parentheses. They started at the nose and ended next to the mouth, so sort of 2/3 of parentheses. The doctor treated this area with Juvederm but also placed some Juvederm below my bottom lip at the outer edges in the area... more
I have had filler a handful of times over the past 5 years but not consistently. I have found my reason to be consistent. Dr. Lavanya Krishnan. She is the perfect blend of professional and personable. She expertly injected my lower lid area. She did such a great job that I felt confident trying new areas and have never looked better. I do not look tired, I look refreshed and rested. If you are... more
After having oral surgery and years of orthodontia my upper pallet had changed so much that I was left w a sunken in cheek bone line. It made deep wrinkles on the nasiolabial folds (by my mouth) in my 20's. So I went thru my friend's aunt for my juvederm.
She put numbing cream on my face, let it sit... Stuff is like novacain for the face! Then she whipped out the prefilled juvederm and... more
I was given the opportunity to try out Juvederm. I've never had anything done before and I didn't need much, but little that was done gave me awesome results. Dr. Emer has an eye. He is precise, conservative and has an amazing eye for what is needed. I highly recommend him to anyone. Especially first timers! more
From past 4 years i was noticing hollowness on the upper eye area. One day when researching on how to correct it ,i came across a website which was talking about dermal fillers to correct hollowness.
I then decided to go the best surgeon in San Francisco since the procedure is very complex and only tye skillful surgeon can give the desired results
After getting this procedure done from DR... more
I'm going to give a little background about my experience/history with fillers and Botox because it will provide more context to why I think Dr. Mehta is so amazing.
I'm 32 years old and have been getting Botox since I was about 26 or 27, when I started noticing furrows forming between my brows. They weren't severe, but I wanted to nip them in the bud before they got worse, which has worked... more
I had several pockmarks that had developed on my face as a result from a long battle with cystic acne. These divots and dents left my complexion looking uneven and less than desirable. I finally decided to have Dr. Chung treat the depressed areas of my face with Juvederm, and I am so thankful that I did! It's as though a magic eraser has been waved over my face. My complexion is smoother and... more
I am 41 years old, and though my Mexican skin has kept me youthful looking, I noticed my parentheses lines had gotten a lot deeper since turning 40. I asked my doctor for filler, and he recommended Juvederm XC. I LOVE the result. It was painless and took at least five years off my face immediately without being obvious. It just gave me my old face back! My doctor is very skilled and good at... more
I'm 43 years old and got both botox (april 2014) and juvederm (june 2014) for the very first time from Dr. Evan Ransom, and I'm really happy with the results. I've had a very deep frown crease by my left eyebrow which I started to notice when I was around 10 years old. Of course it was very tiny then but 33 years later it has gotten very noticeable . People would ask me how I got my 'scar'.... more
I've been to a number of dermatologists of varying degrees of competence over the years, and Dr. Jason Emer is the best!
Dr. Emer is gentle, professional, and establishes immediate rapport the second he walks into the room. He has a great sense of humor and has always been considerate of my dignity.
In my industry & lifestyle, I'm scrutinized all the time for my appearance (body & face). I... more
So my lips are pretty thin. I thought it would be fun to have some fuller lips for when I got to meet my favorite singer. I got Juvederm injected in them and also some to the folds under my nose. The first day after I liked it, but I was swollen. By the point this picture was taken, it was about 4 weeks after and my lips really were exactly the same as before. So I felt that was not worth... more
Anyone had experience with dr Mabrie from San Francisco or dr Karam from San Diego? I want my eyes and lips done, looking for a fat transfer or filler but can't decide which doctor, both have good reviews. Pls share ur experienced if you have seen these 2 doctors. I want to be careful on these decisions, it's not something I can hide if something goes wrong. more
I have routinely had Juverderm injections. First to my nasolabial folds and later on to y lips and cheeks.
I have not always used the same injector or clinic since I am a Groupon junkie.
So along the way I have had bad results as well as "oh my god!" I look s good!" results.
This is really a technique issue, I know by experience and it has nothing to do with how fancy or how many diplomas the... more
I'm a 38 yr old mother of 4 and I went in about 11 days ago to try Juvederm in my naso-labial folds (which are not that bad, but certainly starting to appear on their "way down"). I went to the place where I've been getting my facials/dermasweep for over a year. It is a "laser and skin" center- managed by an MD, with a nurse who is certified in injections and lasers and then several... more
Had my lips done last year with juvaderm ultra plus (not sure the difference between regular juvaderm) but my PS says he only uses it in the lips because it lasts long and makes them extra supple. I absolutely love the result! At first, the swelling was shocking and I didn't want to leave the house but after that was gone, I was so happy. Finally I have beautiful lips! more
I have been going to Dr. Commons for botox and juvederm for about 2 years now. I had seen 3 others before him and am happy to say he is my favorite of them all. He has a very nice bedside manner and his suggestions are so incredibly helpful. He is honest and will tell you if he thinks something you had in mind isn't a good idea, which I am truly grateful for.
I came in for juvederm... more
