I had 1 syringe of Juvederm injected in my lips and in several spots around my mouth and my physician did a great job. I had no bruising, and it looked just a bit overdone, but not bad for a first try. Supposedly, it lasts up to a year. Well, not on me! It diminished consistently, and by 3 months was noticeably gone. By 4 months completely gone. If i were to continue with this product, since it only comes in the full syringe, I would have to wait 4 months between injections in order to get shrunken enough for a full syringe. I would constantly be going swollen to shrunken. Not good! and spending $1800/year. So, I am going to try to find an alternative (maybe Restalyne) that I can get in smaller quantities and do more often. Bottom line: not worth it. I am 60 years old and in very good shape, trim, and fit, even my face looks pretty good. Not ready for a facelift yet!
