This procedure was performed 1 year ago. my undereye area turned black & blue. this was devastating against my tan skin. after several return visits to dr banks-and being told each time that it would get better-i was told it was an adverse reaction to the botox. now, a year later, my right eye is permanently scarred from her work. i would not recommend her and further, don't be swayed by... more
I’ve had filler injected in my nasolabial folds, lips, chin, and under my eyes for my under eye hollows. I’ve had juvederm injected under the eyes probably 3 or 4 times in the last few years by different injectors (NPs, dermatologists, and occularplastic surgeons). I’ve noticed 2 major problems with juvederm under the eyes. One is that they don’t inject you in the actual hollow because... more

I have had other fillers, including collagen, and another Hyalronic Acid filler. Based on my three sessions over almost two years, I feel Juvederm is simply superior for my concerns - mainly deep wrinkles. I've never tried it as a plumper, or in the nasal folds, as more
I had Restylane 2 years ago for the lines around my mouth (jowels under the corner of my mouth and the lines on the side/upper part of my mouth. It was $500 then, I had a small bruise on the top of my mouth and was satisfied with the results. It wasn't totally over the top, but I had realistic expectations and it lasted about a year.This morning I decided to do another treatment (two years... more
I had my second juvederm experience yesterday. Last February when going in for a Restalene injection for my laugh lines (which also works great in that area!) , I decided to try it in my lips. The nurse practioner suggested we go with Juvederm instead and I was thrilled with the results! I will never go back to how my lips looked before.
I went again yesterday,not even because I absolutley... more
I just got my first lip enhancement ever today....went with the Juvederm, and even though it is still a bit swollen, i am LOVING what i see and feel.....i had a *very* thin upper lip...almost to the point of being non-existant, except for a little bulb of flesh right in the middle....kind of like Michael Keaton's lip shape, if you can picture what that looks like. Anyway, I wanted a REAL... more
I can’t complain about much but I have never liked my lips. They were always too thin, especially the top one, although I always wanted a pouty bottom lip. This became an area I focused so much on growing up, even though I had everything else I wanted better lips.
I eventually got a lip lift, which I must say helped incredibly. I tried Juvederm in the year leading up to that and it’s a... more
