Juvederm on Marionette Lines...Not Sure? - Scottsdale, AZ

I received my first treatment of Juvederm 2 weeks...

I received my first treatment of Juvederm 2 weeks ago for my Marionette Lines. She used 1/2 a syringe.

Pros: No bruising, and painless! So easy.

Cons: The areas that she injected felt somewhat numb for 2-3 days. The Juvederm she used had a numbing medicine already in it. Could this be why?

Placement: She placed most of the filler at the corners of my mouth as she said she wanted to lift this area (as the corners dropped downward). She said this would help with the Marionette lines. She also put 2 units of botox in the chin muscles to stop the downward pull. I She didn't place filler in the actual "marionette line" though. So my results aren't exactly what I was expecting. After the product settled I can still see the lines. But they are definitely better. And the corners of my mouth look better :) I plan to go back for more.

Update

So after a few months, I noticed the Juvederm was starting to absorb and my results werent as vibrant. But the fill above the corners of my mouth stayed for the full 6 months. The botox in the chin muscle seemed to really help as well and that lasted about 4 months. The only drawback was that food sometimes got stuck in the pouch between my teeth and lip and because that muscle was frozen with the botox, it was hard to maneuver my mouth to get it out! haha, I had to use my finger a lot. Kinda funny. But I would do it again :) I just got some more fill today July 10th (by Dr. Paul Holden). He did a touch up on my marionette area and also did my nasal folds. :) He didnt numb me, so it did hurt a little. But other than that, it was great.
