I spend so much time researching things on Realself I figured I'd return the favor and do a review lol. I had one cc of Belotero injected into my tear troughs and 1cc of Juvederm into my cheeks. I had some bleeding which has caused major (in my opinion) bruising. I was initially scared that it was the tyndall effect but I had a follow up with my Dr. today and he has assured me it is not. I... more
This procedure was performed 1 year ago. my undereye area turned black & blue. this was devastating against my tan skin. after several return visits to dr banks-and being told each time that it would get better-i was told it was an adverse reaction to the botox. now, a year later, my right eye is permanently scarred from her work. i would not recommend her and further, don't be swayed by... more
I highly recommend Dr. Naderi. He was very gentle and has a great eye for detail. Instead of performing a dental block he used numbing cream.. From past experience I was given a dental block and it was pretty painful!!! However with Dr. Naderi's method I required almost little to no down time after the procedure. I couldn't be happier with my results. :-) more
Dr. Sommerville applies a numbing cream prior to the procedure for 20-30 minutes. She injects the wrinkles and massages the filler into the skin afterwards. She also cools the skin with an ice pack which I think reduces the bruising. The results are awesome and completely natural! I had smile lines injected. more
I wanted to do two vials full of filler because that is what the last PS did, but he wanted to go with less to see how it turned out. It turned out great. I didn't have the awful swelling this time that I had when someone else did my fillers. I did have some bruising but that was because of some medication I took the day before but forgot about. I think that was because of his technique and... more
I am new to the DC area and was concerned about possible facial scarring that could have resulted from a previous fall. I turned to my renowned ENT doctor at Mt. Sinai Hospital / NYC. When I explained the specific problem, he referred me to Dr. Chaboki in DC who had done his residency under my doctor in New York.
I could not be happier with that introduction. The scarring problem turned... more
I have had other fillers, including collagen, and another Hyalronic Acid filler. Based on my three sessions over almost two years, I feel Juvederm is simply superior for my concerns - mainly deep wrinkles. I've never tried it as a plumper, or in the nasal folds, as more
Careful not to be too close to a social event, I had juvederm in late November in my tear troughs to cover the deep circles that had appeared with weight loss. By mid December my "swelling" as the doctor indicated it was still had not gone down and people kept asking me what was wrong and if I felt okay. Going to any social events for Christmas was just unbearable. People I hadn't seen for... more
I can’t complain about much but I have never liked my lips. They were always too thin, especially the top one, although I always wanted a pouty bottom lip. This became an area I focused so much on growing up, even though I had everything else I wanted better lips.
I eventually got a lip lift, which I must say helped incredibly. I tried Juvederm in the year leading up to that and it’s a... more
