I went in for a tummy tuck consultation and came out with juvederm. I had the numbing cream before hand, but it didn't really do much for me. The needle hurts when it is going in, especially along the top lip. Not really painful, it just stung a bit and was uncomfortable. I was injected with Juvederm Ultra Plus. So far, I'm happy with the results, I do wish that I had gone for that second... more
I received I vial of juvederm ultra xc lip injections. Doctor was very friendly and staff was very professional. First of all let me say OUCHHHHH!!!!! This procedure hurts very much. Dr Weber uses the cannula method of injection where you go in through the side, instead of poking needles in your lips.
I am now 24 hours post op. My top lip is swollen and the left side of the injection... more
I had an overfill of Voluma injected and my cheeks looked like clown cheeks. I hated them, but I was terrified to try Hyaluronidase. I read terrible things about it on the internet. I made an appointment with Dr Weber. He was very knowledgeable and put my fears at ease. His assistant Camille was just as helpful. I really like her as well. I was extremely pleased with the results. more
Premature aging lead me to juvederm injections around my smiling lines. while the fillers did an okay job of filling winkles after TWO weeks i still have a bruise. Unfortunately my doctor/receptionist did not advise me regarding a pre-injection regime, i.e. i had a beer the night before and aspirin. in reading through realself reviews in more detail now i understand the implications. i... more
So I had some juvederm and a tiny bit of botox injected into the lines at the corners of my mouth and some in the jowl area. A couple hours later I got a weird headache on the top of my head an today I am feeling really out of sorts, tired and light headed and sorta off balance but maybe because I am super tired.
My results well not so happy with them. My left side did not take at all on... more
I am a 58 year old caucasian woman and I wanted to have some facial rejuvenating done, so I went for a consult at a local med spa which is run under the direction of two plastic surgeons. My practitioner was a lovely RN with several years of injector experience. I had never done any fillers or botox before, but that's what was recommended for me to achieve a more youthful appearance. I... more
I was a patient of Dr. Contreras a couple of weeks ago. He injected Juvederm filler in my hands and he also did a laser treatment (IPL) to get rid of age spots. I am very happy with the results; my hands now look much more youthful again. I thought the aged look of my 60 year old hands was something I had to live with until Dr. Contreras told me about using filler and laser treatment. I did... more
In the past few months I've been eying this out and when I found out it helped with dark circles I just HAD to get this done. It says it usually takes a week to heal and the swelling go down, but I'm an exception. I usually take double the time to heal with stuff like this even my botox. I bruise easily and swelling sticks around for a while. I've had mine done over 3 weeks ago and I still... more
I had my lips injected with one syringe of Juvederm on Monday morning. Ughhhhhh. Well the vertical lines above my upper lip are gone but a visible duck lip is now been present ever since. Wives club here I come.
I was specific that this what I wanted to avoid. Yet here I am. People at work are talking behind my back about it. It's been 4 days and only a little swelling has gone down. I... more
Wow. Am I thrilled. First want to correct something on wrote on a previous post, about Juvederm done at Univ.
in Hershey... Dr. used 2 vials, no 4 as previously stated. I think he did a good job, but used too much and I had an outline where he filled on either side of nose.
Today, 1year 9 months later, had only 1 unit of Restylane done, (very conservative) on lines around mouth. I chose... more
I had juvederm ultra plus injected into my lips today. I am 32 years old and have a VERY thin top upper lip. DO NOT plan on going to events after, the swelling was a bit much but fine with ice. The swelling was probably worse because I used a dental block so the procedure was pretty much painless (minor pain near edge of lip where dental block didn't get to).
So far it looks like I... more
I have a large bruise on one half of my upper lip, post Juvederm Ultra lip augmentation. It's been 48 hrs post procedure, and I am wondering if taking a vitamin C supplement at this time will help the bruising go away faster? I'm also wondering if it would help to apply a warm compress to the bruise? Does anyone know if it is better to rub over-the-counter vitamin K or arnica cream to... more
I too, have had what I believe to be a bad experience with Juvedrerm. Although some of these products have the same "active ingredients" my experience with Juvedrem was very different then my previous experiences with Resaline or Captquie. I have had treatments with other two products from the physician and was very pleased! My third treatment (9 months) later was with his new PA due to my... more
