Perfect results!! I am so very happy . I literally had the procedure done 30 minutes ago and I am back at work and no one would even know. Dr. Worthing used Juvederm ultra in my mouth / nose folds. One injection on each side. That is ALL. He uses a cannula to work his way up from the mouth area all the way to the nose. Painless!! And not a lot of little injection sites. It's very very subtle,... more
Bad outcome. I described below what happened. I will never go back to Dr Siegel. And his current staff makes me feel very unwelcome. I do not recommend this Doctor and his young entitled staff.
He was fast and sloppy with the injection and ran off, leaving me without a ice to prevent bruising, had to leave the room and flag the staff down to get two small ice packs. more
Hey guys, so after a really long time of putting it off and doing lots of research I finally decided to do my lips! I went in today and I must say that the pain level was significantly less than I expected. I felt a tiny sting but barely anything! They iced and numbed my lips tired to the procedure. I originally wanted both top and bottom lips injected, but the doctor suggested I just you my... more
Please help! I went to get my lips injected with juvederm Mon, 11/11/13. I have had several lip injections done before and have never had the extreme swelling and huge knot in the inside of my bottom lip. I had taken 4 advil on the day i had my juvederm appt, not knowing that it causes bruising. I have attached some photos. My lips are very chapped but i am afraid to put anything on them.... more
I have had juvederm 5 times previous to my most recent series of injections and do upkeep every 6-8 months in different areas. I really like the youthful volumizing enhancements for my looks. I really believe that great results with this product depend almost totally on the skill of injector. I have always been injected by plastic surgeons.
This time I had a few small bruises in the smile... more
I jumped on the injectable bandwagon at the age of 47 and I am now 50. I usually do the peremiter of the lips, upper as well as the corners to turn my mouth up. Also on my slight nasolabial folds and marionette lines. I have never had any problems. When I went for my twice yearly juvederm treatment the injector advised me to do the full syringe on my left side as my face was starting to lose... more
Ok I finally did it! I have terrible bags under my eyes and wanted to try restylane to fill out the "rut" She reccomended a full syringe under each eye but i was hesitant and she said lets try half. So we did and I wish I would have gotten a full one but I can go back ( I bought 2 syringes at better cost than individual) It didnt hurt at all, my left eye is swollen but right eye isnt... more
I was always conscious of the frown lines at the edges of my lips and my disproportionately small upper lip that virtually disappeared when ever I would smile. I wanted to do something to improve how I felt about myself and Juvederm and Xeomin seemed like a great place to start.
I love the results! My lips are proportionate but not too big and my smile lines tip up,just how I wanted... more
I had Juvederm injections in the top and bottom of my lips. I really really love it!! It was totally worth every penny. I already know this will be a yearly thing for me.
I did have bruising for about 2wks but nothing that couldnt be covered by a little makeup. And after the following day I highly recommend it if your unhappy with the volume of your lips!!
Just make sure you go to a... more
A friend knew how upset I was with the results of my Artefill experience and the doctor who did it, and the $1,200 wasted when it totally deflated within 12 days, and never improved over the coarse of 3 months...So I kept wondering what to try next.
I work at UTMB and asked Board Certified Plastic Surgeon there if they could do the tear trough area of my eyes and most seemed reluctant or... more
I had to viles of Juvederm injected for laugh lines and immediatly saw pleasing results. The plastic surgeon said that it's all about how skilled the person injecting it is. He used a numbing cream first but I still felt it a bit. I am very tolerant of needles but it would definitely hurt bad without the cream. I first was consulted about fillers at spas. I am so glad I went to a facial... more
This was my first time with Juvederm. I'm 45 and thought I'd try and smooth out the smile lines a bit. My injections were done 5 days ago by a very well respected plastic surgeon (he did everything right). I still have swelling and bruising. Using makeup to cover those areas.
At this time I don't think I will do this again. Feels fake! The results are ok and I suppose the... more
I had Juvaderm injected into my lips, above my lip, and my nasiolabial folds in November 2008 ... it was totally worth it. Yes, it was incredibly painful, my doctor gave me a dental block to numb my lips and above my lip (which, by itself, hurt so bad), then injected 2 syringes of Juvaderm (which hurt, even with the dental block).Yes, I bruised badly (I bruise easily anyway), but I blame a... more
I was very nervous after seeing the pictures and hearing the horror stories about fillers under the eyes, but I've had these dark circles all my life and was ready to try anything.If you have a great doctor (mine trains other doctors how to do it), then absolutely don't hesitate to do it. I had only one syringe because I was a nervous, but I think I could have done two. My circles are not... more
I went to an actual plastic surgeon who did the injections himself. He gave me a dental block and also talked me into some botox...the juvederm ultra was only 375.00 the botox jacked up the total to 645.00
I was really concerned about the bruising I have read about on this site and others. I bruise very very easily and did some research on how to prevent it. My research turned up the fact... more
I was tired of my nasolabial folds and these lines on the sides of my mouth. I read about Juvederm and thought I would try it out. After visiting the website and uploading my picture I was hooked.
The procedure had minimal discomfort involved. I was told two syringes but it only took 1 for complete recovery. I plan to get another application in the apples of my cheeks in two weeks. In... more
Great RN at a board certified plastic surgeon's office recommended by a friend. Other than passing out cold after the treatment (I have a needle fear I didn't realize was so severe!), the results are great. I thought it was rather painful. Area was numbed topically. But it only took a couple of minutes. I just had it done today (nasolabial), very minimal swelling. Beautiful, natural, subtle... more
