Very relaxing, doctor very informative, virtually painless. Juvederm ultra injected into very minor naso-labial folds just beginning to show my age. total confidence in doctor, he really listened to my needs and injected conservatively. LOVE the way I look right now, 10 years younger! I just hope the "effects" of the product aren't just the swelling from the injections. Will update.
Just had NL injections hours ago--If I like the way I look now, does that mean that once the swelling goes down I will see minimal effects?

This is the second time I have had juvederm injected by a plastic surgeon. The first time I had my nasolabial folds done conservatively in January, now in May I had my nasolabial folds touched up and a very small amount placed at the base of my tear trough in my midface. Both times I experienced no bruising, no swelling, and went out the same night of the injections as well as attended a bbq and party the next day. I iced all day of the injections, 10 minutes on, 30 minutes off, and took lots of arnica. The correction is VERy subtle, and I still have the troughs or my bags, but I look "fresher" and definitely younger. I am glad my practitioner understands that a conservative approach is best and I plan to visit every 5-6 months for touch ups. I think this is the best approach because then we can gauge together where a small amount of filler needs to go, in order to be the least invasive and not change the shape and contour of my face in a drastic manner. I am so happy with these results and the fact that I'm not experiencing any serious side effects. Again, I believe the small amount he placed in both places was key to my success.
