I found as I was getting closer to 50, my face was losing volume and the lines around my mouth looked more pronounced. I had Dr. Loverme fill these areas with Juvederm and have never been happier. He put exactly the right amount to smooth out the lines and add just enough volume to my face making me appear younger. The numbing agent in the juvederm made it pain-free and I had little to no... more

I've hated the deep grooves under my eyes for so long. Not knowing any better, I'd assumed I'd need surgery when Dr. Kapadia told me in my consult that I only needed fillers. I didn't think twice about it and couldn't be happier. My sisters say it's very natural and just took the hard, "sunken" edge off. more
About three years ago, I weighed close to 190 lbs. I lost 50 pounds over a six month period. I initially looked great, but continued to lose another ten pounds. You know what's coming next . . . my face started to look gaunt. Unfortunately, as we age (I'm now 50), our skin doesn't bounce back. I waited, using creams and serums on my face, hoping that it would tighten up, but it... more
Its been awile and I have been so busy, but I have always wanted to try some plumping in my lips. I did have this procedure done and used a whole syringe, my lips were not full but Inbetween. The procedure was quick painfull and results were seen right away I had a little bruising but lasted a week. I love my lips more
I had a tiny amount of Juvederm injected under my eyes because I felt that I wanted to "puff" up the hallows under my eyes.
However, as soon as I came home from the dermatologist, I had blue puffy semi-circles under both eyes, lower than the place I requested the filler.
I went back to the doctor a week later and he said it's because the blood vessels are very close to... more
I had juvederm injected into the tear trough 4 weeks ago. I was only trying to freshen up before a trip to cancun. BIG MISTAKE. I look horrible! I have had horrible swelling and puffiness. The bags I was trying to fix look twice as big. I also got bruising that hasnt gone away. I'm so upset. I keep looking at old pictures wondering what possessed me to do this to begin with.
I went to... more
I have reasonably sized lips and wanted a little more volume especially in my top lip. I had more injected into the body of my lips instead of the border so they looked more natural, not strange like they can look if too much is around the vermillion border. Juvederm is perfect for this and gave me my dream lips! They look very natural and luscious.
Only downside is they will bruise and... more
I was sooo nervous, but more sick of my deep tear troughs making my dark circles more obvious.I have juvederm done-got one nasty small purple bruise. Two weeks later I went for follow up-2 more little shallow spots and a little massage done.I love it. It made a HUGE difference in the way I see myself. Make sure you use a reputable Dr. more
I went in to have the lines above and below my lips filled in. The MD suggested lip enhancement would do the trick. OMG --it was so painful that I totally passed out. I don't think the novacaine worked. Anyways, my lips were injected with minimal bruising, but one side was slightly larger than the other. I went back about 10 days later to even them out and had a completely different... more
Had Juvederm Plus injected into my smile lines and also the marionette lines. I love the results - very subtle looking but the lines are gone! Had this procedure done 3 days ago - do have slight bruising on one side but expect it to be gone in a couple of days. I needed two syringes. My doctor recommended Radiesse but I chose to use Juvederm because I wasn't sure I would like the results... more
