My lips are thin but not super thin I wanted just a bit more volume kinda like the volume you get if you have swollen lips, I wanted that effect but in a symmetrical, natural way with as little bruising as possible. I went to Pascual Med Spa, talked with their medical director and had the injections the following day. The numbing agents they used did their job, the procedure involved almost no... more
With several fillers available nowadays I wasn't sure Juvederm is what I wanted. I didn't even know much about it but Dr. Sayed explained every little detail to me and made me a comparison between all the other fillers and together we decided Juvederm was the best option for my nasolabial folds.
The results were instant and I didn't feel much pain at all, it truly is something worth having... more
I made my appointment and saw one of the doctor's P.A.'s who answered ALL my questions before my treatment. She listened to all my concerns and had a wonderfully patient and warm disposition. The rest of the doctor's staff were great as well. I had numbing cream applied for an hour on my nasolabial folds and the corners of my mouth. I had 1 syringe of Juvederme Ultra XC applied in these areas.... more
When you go in and meet with him and his staff, you will get a full explanation of exactly what’s going to be done. Then you will have a very personable nurse talk to you and prep you with numbing cream if you so choose and an interesting practice they have is putting ice on it before its injected which numbs the area naturally as opposed to with numbing cream. It’s not painful at all. I... more
I went to see him because I needed some fullness in my cheeks. He treated me with Juvaderm filler, which cost me over $3000. Started to get lumps which he injected to dissolve them. Now it's 1 year later and I still keep getting them. Too much injected! He screamed at me for not being happy & I left! more
I had been treating the lines around my eyes with Botox and endless high-end eye creams for a few years. I was also noticing how dark and "empty" my under-eyes were becoming with age and lack of sleep! I am always on the go for my job. I had no idea these problems could be addressed with fillers (Juvaderm) until I met Dr. Rian Maercks. I'm so happy with my results! I wish I could tell all of... more

Enhance features. Being a working model I have always been content with my face and considered myself above average, yet I had always felt my beauty could be better showcased and Dr. Maercks did just that. The injectable process was quick and pain free and the results were absolutely stunning.
My face is now more symmetrical, my lips have a beautiful natural fullness to them and... more
I was highly recommended to Dr. Pat Pazmino. I am in my forties and he recommended that I get Botox and Juvederm. The best decision I have ever made!!! I look much younger, i get many compliments and I love my new relaxed look. Definitely worth it!

Here's another Juverderm nightmarish experience. I think a lot of the advise on this board and from the physicians is sound and well artculated. The bottom line is this. DO NOT.. DO NOT... DO NOT get this done by anybody but a board certified costmetic surgeon. And I'm not talking about a nurse who works for a cosmetic surgeon or a born again... more
