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
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 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
I decided to get my lips plumped with Juvederm after researching online. I had my appt today. There was not a lot of pain and I had a full syringe. Left with little swelling, iced the lips then slowly it got swollen and bruised seems to be a bit more swollen then the pics I have seen. Does the amount of swelling and bruising I have seen normal. Would like to hear your experiences. Sent pics... more
My lips were a bit uneven and not quite as full as I'd like, so I decided to give Juvederm a try. As it was my first time getting any sort of cosmetic procedure, I opted for half a syringe initially for more modest results and I couldn't be happier. The results are subtle and natural (read: skilled and precise injection), but make a huge difference to me. more
I went to my Doctor for a simple juverderm procedure. He was supposed to inject my lips with the product. After I left I noticed that my upper lip had no color in it at all. I have had this procedure done before and so I knew my body tolerated it and that no color in my upper lip was odd. The next day I woke up and my upper lip was swollen huge. My nose was also swollen as well as the... more
I am very pleased with my Botox and Juvederm results. Dr. Commons' Botox technique gave me a brow lift along with getting rid of my heavy brow frown line, eliminatied my crow's feet and under eye wrinkles. The Juvederm filled in my thin wrinkled jaw line, smoothed out my wrinkles in and around my lips (my lipstick goes on great now), eliminated the bunny lines on my nasal bridge and the lines... more
Wanted poutier lips.
My experience with Juvederm XC was great. It has been 8 months after my injection in my lips, and they still look great. I have looked at many online at before and after pictures, and have never seen results like mine. I am VERY satisfied with the results.
Overall the procedure was painless and fast. I saw immediate results, but after a few ... more
I had the Juvederm inject October 12,2011, had huge bruise with deep swelling. It have been four weeks, the swelling have not gone or decreased. I did went back to my derm...there's nothing he can do. I just have to suffer longer to see the result. I don't reconmmend this inject. Unless you want to see your face bruised, swelling and feeel numbness everyday. more
I was getting Botox and a girl friend swore by having fillers. I had my labial folds and some frown lines at the bottom sides of my chin.
It has been over 7 months and I still see the results. Everyone tells me I look younger. It was totally worth it for me, as it seems to last. You need someone very experienced to get it exactly in the area you want it. I only needed on syringe,this time.... more
One in October with two viles. I am really surprised how long it's lasted. I would say I still have 70% of the results and it's now July.
I completely removed the scars that were treated. I am thrilled.
I plan on doing this forever. Yeah! more
I'm 43 and had some bags under my eyes. Went to a plastic surgeon to discuss surgery options. She suggested I could buy some time with filler and asked if I had a preference for restylane or juvederm. I did not know the difference and she injected 1 syringe of juvederm. She also said that more
I have had juvederm done twice now. The first time she said that it just sucked it in and saw very little results. I was getting it done for smoker lines around my lips. She suggested I come back which I did two weeks later and she would use the stronger juvederm. Well, I was really puffed up for a while and once the swelling was gone my lips looked barely any different and the wrinkles are... more
