Motivation pros and cons outcome
I have researched lip injections for a year or so because my lips weren't very defined, not very plump, and too thin in my opinion.
I chose the plastic surgeon after seeing my friend's awesome results done by him. all too often I see duck lip results instead of the balanced plumped and defined look I desired. I was numbed with a pain block and couldn't feel... more
I got Juvederm injected under my eyes - in the orbital areas. I did not have wrinkles; I just had a bit of a concave look. The Juvederm is very difficult to smooth out underneath the eyes. I was unaware of all the massaging and compressing the doctor had to do to try to even it out. The effect was little pillows and a bluish color. It has been nearly a year, and now the Juvederm is wearing... more
I had Juvederm injected into N/L on Tuesday. The doctor was nice enough, but I don't think she did a good job. She only injected each side 3 times. I feel like it should have been more like 6 pricks with less material in each on each side. But because she only hit 3 areas on each, the difference is nearly impossible to notice. She told me her prices were the best and I trusted that. But after... more
Pro:fastCon:not happy with results, at least not yet- worried about this dark spot/(hopefully a bruise) didn't give me the seamless look I was hoping for on one side and it was expensive, tooWhy:wanted to look younger
Hi I had Juvaderm ultra plus placed into my laugh lines/marionette two days ago and now on one side, it looks like there is a dark bluish spot. more
I had Juvederm injected in marionette and smile lines 10months ago. Initially, it swelled up a lot. On the left side of my face it seemed to relocate itself from the smile line to above my upper lip. Where it still sits. It is in the shape of a quarter and looks puffy and weird. The doc tried to bring it down a bit, which helped somewhat initially. I decided to wait the rest out. It is going... more
Ok, I had never done any kind of cosmetic procedure except a laser treatment in my derm office to ward off oncoming Rosecea redness and blood vessels.
My gf whom is 30 gets botox and loves it. Me, I couldn't think of doing it until one day I realized I wanted fuller lips. I made the appt and in two weeks went to a well known clinic here in Portland, OR.
I was TERRIFIED. I'm not afraid... more
I have had both Restalyn, and Juvederm in the folds by my mouth, and Rest. on my lip line and Juvederm on line and in my lips. I perfer Juvederm. I experienced no bumps at all with the Juvederm, but did noticed bumps with the Rest.
I did bruise a bit, but it was gone in a week. I could cover it with cover-up though and not severe. I think it makes a big difference if you prepare for this,... more
Amazing!! I love it! Yesterday I had botox injected in my crows feet and Juvederm in my laugh lines. I have had NO bruising and minimal redness/swelling. It looks fantastic. I am convinced that the experience you have is completely dependent on the doctor/R.N. you see. Initially I went to a very well known and respected hospital in town for a consultation. The doctors bedside manner was... more
