A Little Bruising is Worth the Long-lasting Results

I’ve done a lot over the years to reduce fine lines, and when I heard how long Juvederm was supposed to last, I was very intrigued. I’ve used Hylaform previously to fill the lines on my face and also once to fill out my upper lip, but it only lasted a few weeks. I had also thought of trying Restylane, but put it off because of different testimonials I’d read on the Internet (some people liked it, some didn’t). But given the way people raved about Juvederm, I thought it was worth trying.

My results with Juvederm are definitely more pronounced, but I’m not sure how happy I am just yet. My lips are definitely much fuller – both fuller than normal and fuller than other lip fillers – and my fine lines are barely noticeable now too. But the bruising on my lips is extreme, especially for something that is called a “lunch hour” procedure! Also, I think there’s a fair amount of swelling that keeps me from accurately judging the results. My hope is that this isn’t the final look and that my doctor is right (she says the side effects will fade completely within the week).

I think in the end my satisfaction will depend on how long Juvederm lasts; if I have to explain to people that, “No, I wasn’t in a fight…” then the results will have to last a while to be worth it. I am frightened of the current state but am also very confident based on the reports I’ve read from other people who’ve tried Juvederm. This is supposed to be the best yet, fingers crossed!
