Not Happy with Juvederm

Here  are my lopsided juvederm lips with all...

here  are my lopsided juvederm lips with all the wrinkles back after one week! Three syringes and 900.00 later!!! I went to a well known dermatologist. Now that the swelling is down nothing looks any different. I had my upper and lower lips injected as well as my chin and between the eyes and under. No change!!

Okay, here are the before and after Juveder....

I went to get a couple of lines filled in above my lip and then the doc suggested some in my lip and I said sure and I hate it with a passion. the lines that i wanted gone are there and look even worse than they did before. I am having to go to another Dr. to get him to take this crap out because ever time I go to the original Dr. she pushes me out of the door.

I will never ever use Radiesse/Juvederm again! (see my post above from 2009) The fillers were a huge waste of money, and the people at this reputable spa in Sugarland Texas were very deceiving and lied. Nothing but money grabbers and don't care about you. I also, to this day despise any pamphlets I see with these ” perfect” women. Then I spent so much on Botox it was ridiculous! I talked with my Internal Doctor, and have my records and will have him do at least my next Botox injections. He said they should of done a better job, and the botox should of lasted longer. Its so frustrating, I wasn't looking for perfection from this spa before,.but at least some satisfaction,.especially since they are well know! Grrrrrr, makes my blood boil thinking of the false advertising and misleading people!

Sorry that happened to you. It's been a few years since this all happened and I was wondering if you went to see any other DR's? You are a very VERY attractive woman, and for the $$$ I'd absolutely never go (IF IT WERE ME) to ANYONE other than a board certified Plastic Surgeon who came HIGHLY recommended. Actually, I'd even suggest that you see a Board Certified FACIAL Plastic Surgeon, because they will be honest and can tell you right away what would work best. I am so sorry that you had such a bad experience =(

PS: As I just looked at your pics again, I notice that BEFORE you did not have what I call the "FAT PADS" under your eyes. My plastic surgeon and friends of mine that are also PS's have ALL told me that one must be very experienced in injecting & that not everyone is a good candidate for fillers under the eyes (INCLUDING ME- I asked for fillers under eyes a while ago instead of using any botox and my PS straight up said "NO WAY" it will not look good. It truly blows my mind that there are actually DR's out there who don't give a rats behind, do not have the proper education, and do this shotty work on people. MOST GREAT DR's will be honest enough to stop a person (like myself) from doing something (like asking for fillers under eyes) that will not benefit the patient. Luckily you are in California, and in your area are a bunch of highly respected MD's that you can consult at the very least without taking advantage. xoxo

Three syringes of juvederm would be a lot more than $900.I know it`s about $700 for 1.So I doubt that`s what was injected unless he was giving you some kind of super duper deal. Go to a different dr and tell them what happened.Find a dr that is an expert injector.I had a dermotologist inject me and it went away from 3 weeks! Good luck

If he is still ignoring you I would report him for theft, he took your money & you have NO results as you said, you looked better in the before pic's...how very sad for you. Maybe another P.S. can do something?

I had similar experience with Radiesse/Botox.I Went in March, after 1 week the botox was almost gone. After 2 weeks the Radiesse was almost gone as well.(This is advertised to last at least 12 months) HA! I was insecure with my looks and trusted this very reputable spa to make me look just perfect (which they told me)! After emailing/calling this Spa and getting attention of Regional Manager,I had a follow up appt., which from my perseverance and emailing pictures of regression they started with 2 complimentary syringes of Radiesse - I insisted in 1 more for the hollow cheeks that dissapeared too. They agreed and all 3 syringes were NO Charge! They originally cost me in March $875/syringe. Botox was 10.00 - 12.00 per unit. What I spent originally was $3400/But today I got over $2600 worth of product FREE. We'll see what happens, still swollen of course, just had done earlier. I paid for 30 more units of Botox and 1 syringe of Juvederm for my skinny skinny lips. That was $575/syringe. Vertically no pain, They used Lidocane in with some white cream. So, I do agree that YOU NEED TO contact office, keep a paper trail and pictures. If they don't help go to Regional Manager. I told them if they didn't help me I would report them to the BBB. You go there in good faith, hoping to get the results you paid so much for. Hopefully mine will work out....PLEASE it might take a month to complete but you won't know unless you start. Good Luck!

Wow, that is a lot of money for no results. Keep after the doctor and do it daily. I would also report him to anybody and everybody. I hope you get some results.

I would call the office & explain that you have NO results & you won't wait a month, either he can do it over again 4 nothing or give you your money back, looking @ the pictures I do not see any evidence of Juvederm. My results are suttle but I can tell I have Juvderm in my upper lip & naselfold area, it is not dramtic but as I said people can tell I had something done at least. Complain to whoever will listen & report him if he does not respond!

I went back, he saw me in the hall between patients and told me to wait a month, then disappeared into a room.

Go back & tell the doctor or whoever did your Juvie that you are not happy to have paid $900.00 for nothing! I would be so pissed*
