Yesterday I had my lips done but I'm not liking what it looks like. It was very painful despite the Lidocane cream applied before the injections. I'm not a baby but this hurt a lot. Now my left upper lip is still swollen more than the right side. What I really don't like is somehow my jowls are more accentuated. I think it may be because the lips are pushing downward being so swollen. ... more
Got the date set--gonna do it. I guess fillers are the only thing that will work for me right now. I had hoped Titin, or Thermage might work but I guess I'm not a good candidate. I didn't think I was all that "loose". Loosing weight and hormones...ug. I've done this so much in my life but it's always bounced back beautifully. Ok--got some more weight to loose. Fillers till I get the... more
I've had juvederm in my lips twice by one doctor, and went to a new doctor on Tuesday who said I should use perlyane. Only one side of my mouth is swollen and in pain. I noticed a very small pustule on the inner corner of that same side, and when I applied pressure on the area with my tounge from the inside yellow puss/gel like substance kept oozing out of it. Immediately i thought it was... more
I had two sessions of the lip injections using juvederm ultra. I love the results and the pain is not so bad. The injector will numb you up with this cream on your lips. The injections go directly on your lip line and center. Make sure you have the kind of lips you want in mind. more fullness, rounder, etc. Avoid the fish lips at all costs!!! The session takes probably 20 minutes in... more
Had Juvederm for nasolabial and marionette lines about a month ago. Did not hurt. Just one syringe(XC) I like the results on my nasolabial lines but do not like that I now have the "godfather" look under my lower lip.
I have been reading about how to get rid of it but I think I will just wait for it all to "melt" away..I hope time flies cause I feel funny when I look in... more
I had Botox done on my forehead 3 months ago and that was painful and I didn't like the way it felt. But the results were extrememly noticable and I will do it again, just not as much. So I was really looking forward to having the Jevederm injections to help with the lines around my mouth. I did not have any numbing cream and the pain was nothing compared with the Botox. You feel the... more
When Juvederm is injected too superficially under the eyes will it be absorbed by the body quicker than if it had been (correctly) placed under the muscle? I am hoping this situation doesn't last a whole year.
I had Juvederm injected 3 months ago for some hollowing underneath my eyes. Unfortunately, the dermatologist used a "superficial" technique leaving me with a Tyndall... more
I went to a plastic surgeons office with concerns regarding laugh lines. The plastic surgeon quickly advised me to have juverderm injected into these areas in order to smooth the lines out. Since the doctor was not able to do the procedure himself, he a nurse do the procedure. I knew there was a problem due to the nurse continuing to apply pressure on my right side of my face, trying to smooth... more
I've tried a lot of lip fillers. :) While I was one of the few who loved Radiesse for the lips, it is no longer available. After that I tried cosmoplast (lovely, but too short lived), zyplast (didn't last a week on me), Restylane (good results but shortlived), and now Juvederm.
While the clinic does not dental block, they do use a fairly effective numbing cream. I also have... more
