I need Yips ???? just shy of my 29th birthday I finally got my braces off. When they have me the mirror at the orthodontist I was excited to see my perfect smile but all I could notice was my teeth were huge and where did my lips go? And why are those parentheses around my mouth so deep? I didn't wait but 3 days before making my appointment for filler.
So it's been a week since the... more
I see Barbette Fremmerlid, the R.N. for Dr. Michael Leff, Overlake Plastic Surgeons, for my lip injections.
What I love most about Barbette is she is a patient perfectionist. She believes in starting conservative and slowly building up to desired results. WIth lips you can always add, but you can't take away.
I only inject half the syringe at a time. Dr. Leff's office stores the... more
Dr. Ridgeway is amazing! I was a new patient, nervous, and unsure about taking this next step in my skincare journey. He took a large amount of time and did my filler the same day as the consultation. There was very little discomfort and one week later I am thrilled. Trust this man, he is a true professional. more
I had Juvederm injections in the nasolabial folds. I don't know what to think about the result... After a week, there is some kind of long big lump on one side. Stella used Hyaluronidase for over-injected area and after 10 days she injected filler again. Terrable! Now I have a bump and a “whole” between nosalabial fold and cheek (left side) and she told it will go away in couple month....... more
About me: I'm 26 years old, and had fat atrophy from a radio frequency facial when I was 23 and collagen depletion from using Rogaine in April. I had been looking for something to correct both issues, first looking at a fat transfer, in which I was discouraged by doctors, and then looking at fillers, in which I was also discouraged. But I chose the latter anyway. Hey, I could dissolve it if it... more
I've been to Dr. Peter's in the last year for Botox and then Juvederm. The first time for Botox she did my mid brow area and her technique was great. The second time around the forehead and mid brow - not so great. I also had juvederm done around the mouth and nose. The Botox turn out lopsided, leaving one side with a heavier eye. The juvederm eccentuated my problem around the cheek area. I... more
I received shots of Juvederm under both eyes from a very reputable (and expensive) dermatologist in Seattle. Two weeks later I still have one very black and green eye and a large bruise at the injection site under the other.
Wether it will be worth it or not remains to be seen. I would STRONGLY urge anyone not to have this done before a big life event as you might end up looking as if you... more
Great experience. Easy painless injection after some topical lidocaine anesthetic. Slight bruising and tenderness at the site a few hours later, but nothing that can't be covered with some concealer. more
I went to Dr. Ridgway as he is a specialist in treating the face. I have held off on having any cosmetic procedures because of my phobia of needles. I know this is odd, but it is very real. I finally had enough courage to have Botox placed with Dr. Ridgway was amazed at how much time he dedicated to our meeting, my concerns and my comfort. What was originally to be a one time event has now... more
At 54, have nasial folds, slack temples, and undereye hollowness. Effects of Juvederm only lasted 2 days for me. If you have never tried it, I would recommend only buying one vial to help reduce the costly lesson in case it doesn't work. Unfortunately, I bought two. more
After seeing Dr C initially for Skin Cancer checks (when she found a skin cancer that other MD's hadn't found before) I decided to give botox and fillers a try. What a huge difference that made, and the experience was relatively painless as well.
I look like a feel more rested and look a few years younger. Since that went so well, I thought I would try lip enhancement--and Dr C is... more
My lips have always been naturally thin and flat, especially my upper lip. I was tired of always noticing how small they were and any topical solutions gave insignificant results, if any at all.
The numbing cream that was applied 30 minutes before really worked. I barely felt anything the whole time. Dr. C is very gentle and informative. She was so precise, taking the time to sculpt my... more
I had been thinking about fillers for about 2 months and had done some research. I decided I was a good candidate for this because, at 67, the naso-labial lines are quite deep. I couldn't decide between Restylane and Juvederm, but it turns out that decision is best left to the doctor. Now the lines are still there, but much less noticeable, so it looks pretty natural. Also, the corners of my... more
I was really scared to get this treatment done. I hate needles/ blood/ pain. All of it. I have thin lips and had always wanted bigger lips, so I went for it.The injections weren't that bad.. a tad painful, but nothing I couldn't handle. I didn't look like a duck, it actually looked really good. My lips were sensative for a few days and then I was fine. I think that it was worth it!! ... more
