Ive always had horribly thin lips, so my desire for lip injections was to make them look at least average sized.. Went to Embassy Studios as they had a groupon for $350 ( wait till they have a 15% or 20% off Groupon code) and you will pay $299 for one syringe.. Even if you dont want to groupon it.. the retail price is $500. Anyway Rhonna was AWESOME.. one of those kind of people that really... more
I was tired of looking in the mirror and seeing what time has been doing to my face. I used to have high cheek bones and a nice round face. In the last 8 years or so, being in my forties, everything has dropped, including my cheeks. I have the droopiness on the sides of my chin. I also had marionette lines around my mouth and lines. I wanted a natural lift. So, i finally had the juvederm... more
It's been a few hours since I had this juvederm, nasal /labial lines, 1 syringe. It made me so beautiful! Little pinch of the needle, maybe 6 times, 3 each side.
I was so worry going in, asking my PS all kinds of questions. As usually, he was so patient, explaining to me all details.
I was worry that I will have bruise, the material will cause allergic reaction, uneven... all kinds of... more
I am 60 years old and have had Botox in the past. More and more I had been noticing lines around my vertical lines around my mouth. I had read about fillers and really wasn't sure if I wanted to chance it. The reason I say that I have seen some results that look puffy and odd around the lips. I had my consultation with Dr. Robinson but impressed me most was he did not over sell the two... more
Juvederm is quick and minimally invasive. This virtually erased the two deep grooves between my brows which made me looked angry all of the time. The procedure has no down time and lasts about 8 months. This fits my schedule as opposed to surgery. I will continue to have this procedure because there is no obvious change in my appearance, it just refreshes. more
This is my experience getting Juvederm lip injections.
I went to Dr. Ritacca for Juvederm lip injections. Let me say everyone at the practice was friendly and personable, but the results were not worth the almost $600 price tag and 4 appointments.
2 weeks after my injections, I formed a lump on a side of my lip. It looked like a white, hardened zit. He dissolved it during our 60 second... more
Had HA fillers several times dating from 2/10-3/11. Resty and Juve. Now (close to 4 years later) having a horrible reaction. Lumpy appearance, inflammation. Drs claim no way there is still filler. Had ultrasound done. The filler is still there and has migrated all over my face. His Stuff last forever and moves! I don't know why the doctors claim this stuff goes away in 6 months. It doesn't.... more
I'm a 38 yr old woman and just had one syringe of Juvederm yesterday injected in my "parentheses". In love with the results. But PS, even with numbing cream, it hurts...but definitely worth it! Remember to massage, follow instructions that your doctor gives, and you should be good the following day after receiving the injections :-)
I am still loving the Juvederm. And yes, it was my first... more
I had botox for the first time ever, it did not fix the creases, "11's" in between my eyebrows. I went for a second opinion and the Dr. gave me juvederm, I am now a fan for life, in 5 minutes my creases/wrinkles were filled. It took about 2 days to soften and not have wrinkles, I am thrilled, I will do this process until I the day I die.
still get botox, still love botox! more
I met with Dr Cook's nurse Denise in the Winnetka location for lip injections. As a first timer, I was nervous & worried about the procedure & results. She spent a lot of time talking with me to answer questions & ease my anxieties. I had the injections & they're perfect! Will be coming back for more procedures! more
Dawn at Ritacca clinic was great, it made me look very natural and more confident
No downtime, no bruises just a little swelling that went away in couple of days.
I was told that it was going to last up to 9 months, it has been almost 5 and starting to wear off so I am planning to go back for a touch up more
I had one vile of Juvederm XC injected under my eyes and the cheekbone area. I had it under my eyes to help with my bags but my bags look the same. It looked slightly different for about a week in the cheek area and now after three weeks it looks exactly the same before I had anything done. I'm not sure if it's my skin type but I had a horrible experience and would not recommend this product... more
I had one syringe of Juvederm put into my lips. The swelling was more than I expected, but I used advil and ice to help it. It was not painful at all. I do like the look of the lips, but I don't like how stiff my upper lip is, especially when I talk.
People have asked me repeatedly what is wrong with my upper lip. How long will the stiffness last? I had the procedure done on December 19th. more
Just had my second Juvederm treatment last week and I'm loving it! The first was several years ago to minimize marionette troughs, I loved the result and the product lasted for well more than a year. Last week I received my second treatment, to minimize marionette troughs again and also naso-labial troughs. I couldn't be happier. I had zero bruising (surprising because I'm very... more
This is my third time-go every 6 months now although it is still there-lasted a good year the first time..I use it for cheeks, under eye trough and folds at side of mouth-my doc is a genious-doesn't use very much and discounts price but knows just where to place.
This time I bruised under the eyes-the first time, probably because i used advil the day before but it is minor and will be... more
I had juvederm injected into my lips when i was 23, im now 26 and the product is still there not all of it, but still there.
i remember the day i went to see my dermotologist, she told me that this is temporary and it would go away in a year max so i thought well i have thin lips so why not?! its harmless let me try something different and maybe just maybe for once in my life i feel hot... more
It took me awhile to try fillers mainly because of the negative reviews. However, I have been staring at my marionette lines in store mirrors and by the glare of my car window... and it was getting me down. I thought if there is something I could do about it I should. However, it is my face and the potential risks were holding me back.
Anyway, I went for a consultation with a board... more
The "bee sting" felt while getting numb was the worst part of this experience. It is not cheap either! The results were visible within 30 minutes of the procedure. It took about 30 minutes for the redness at the injection site to go away - hence the results were more noticeable when the redness disappeared. Juvederm Ultra was injected into my naso labial folds, my marionette lines... more
Very relaxing, doctor very informative, virtually painless. Juvederm ultra injected into very minor naso-labial folds just beginning to show my age. total confidence in doctor, he really listened to my needs and injected conservatively. LOVE the way I look right now, 10 years younger! I just hope the "effects" of the product aren't just the swelling from the injections. Will... more
