I wrote a message a couple of weeks ago that my juvederm injections hadn't worked and I had wasted $1,000. Well, to my amazement, it finally kicked in. The parenthesis around my nose and mouth are very diminished. It just took more time than I thought it would. I look forward to getting more injections. I am 68 years old and feel pretty again! more

In the last two years I've tried both Juvederm and Restylane. For the first two months after injections I look good and then the product starts to fade fast. I had Juvederm injected into the folds along my nose and mouth 5 months ago and it is completely gone now. The Juvederm and Restylane companies say their products produce long lasting effects up to 1 year. DON'T believe it!... more
Dermatologist recommended juvederm for circles under my eyes. It is absolutely horrible and much, much worse than before. More bags, dark circles, and emphasizes crows feet wrinkles. I knew that it would not remove wrinkles and this was explained to me, but I had no idea it would make everything look worse.
