How to keep from passing out/fainting during Juvederm sessions?
Byon 07 Aug 2013
That's right! The past two times that I have gone, I have passed out while the needle is in my lip! I'm able to alert the doc right before it happens so nothing bad has ever happened but it's so uncomfortable! I'm calm going in so I don't believe it's an "aversion to needles". The first time it happened I was getting botox in the forehead. During that session I was also getting my lips done and passed out then too. I had to go back two weeks later to finish my lips. I actually did better during that session. Instead of it happening right away, it took me a few minutes before I started feeling light headed again. That was in November of 2012. I am going back this Friday and am dreading passing out again because I feel sick to my stomach the rest of the day. The next day I am fine. Have any of you experienced this? If so, have you figured out a way to prevent it? The doctor has me sitting straight up which is not the most comfortable position. I'd much rather be lying back and relaxed but she says that wouldn't be good because the Juvederm will move around to unwanted places and I definitely don't want that!
