Today I had Botox and juvederm injected. Dr day placed the juvederm under my eyes to replace lost volume and diminish my tired appearance. While there is some minimal bruising (normal for under eye injections) dr day was gentle and knowledgeable for proper placement of the filler. This is my first time having Botox injected with dr day.

After having success with other cosmetic procedures using the same doctor,I decided to try juvederm under my eyes.

Anyway, since this borough of NYC is in... more
