This was a far more intensive procedure than I had expected. I got to the doctors office. The nurse put numbing cream under my eyes. I waited a while for the doctor to come in. He then told me that he was going to be putting Novocain in my mouth and using a technique similar to what the dentists do to get the Novocain up to my eye area to help numb the area. Luckily that wasn't that bad and worked very well. Then he injected a mix of lidocain and adrenaline into my under eye area that is supposed to help with bruising and recovery. It took a good 45 minutes just to get me ready to have the Juvederm injected.
The injections themselves didn't hurt much. We did .4 of a syringe in each side. He changed needles for each eye and then one more on my left side as he said the skin was a little bit thicker on that side. I did start bruising almost immediately. I'm on my second day now and the bruising and swelling is pretty bad but luckily I'm off work this week. I will keep you updated on the results as the swelling goes down.
