I received juvederm lip augmentation 2 weeks ago. First, it was the most painful procedure I have ever had. I had topical anesthesia that the doctor left on my mouth for only 5 minutes before she began the procedure. I have since learned that the anesthesia needed to sit for 30 minutes to work properly. My results are far from good. My lip lip is crooked, with one side being much larger... more
I originally went to Toccare, Dr. Nakra's medical spa, because of asymmetrical tear troughs (left was deeper than right). We didn't want to waste the syringe of juvederm I bought, so I asked him to do the parenthesis and slight NL folds I have. I had no bruising whatsoever!
I came back a month later to totally eradicate my tear troughs on both sides and give more volume to my cheeks. I... more
I have always been very small boned, including on my facial area. As I have aged, I have lost volume in the spaces directly under my cheekbones, and have the parentheses around my mouth. Juvaderm gave me instant results that I love.

My husband died years ago and now I am dating again. Dr. Kerr filled them in with Juvederm in a quick easy relatively painless procedure. He explained how everything worked and what he was doing. As the line was quite deep... more
I did not even realize how depressed I was about how old I looked until I had Juvederm. I am thrilled! I have had Restylane and Sculptra treatments prior. The Restylane may have lasted a month, if that. It was a total buzz kill and waste of money. The Sculptra left me with bumps (that I still have years later) and didn't f more
I am very happy with the results. Some pain during the injections, but no pain afterwards. I have very low pain tolerance so I had taken a pill to ease the tension. I covered the small bruises with makeup, and no one knew I had it done..Now, after only 10 days, no bruises..LOVE THE DIFFERENCE.. I don't look "old and drawn" anymore..My friend that was with me when I had it done, can... more
I have previously had Restalyn and fat injections (fat transfer done while asleep during another cosmetic surgery) done in my laugh lines and lips. My plastic surgeon recommended that I try Juvaderm because of the longer las more
