I just had two vials of juvederm ultra plus to my nl folds/cheeks. I had a local topical and the jv was mixed with lidocaine. There was no pain, seriously, and I was really scared about that... and no bruising at all so far. I followed the instructions of no asa/alcohol, and took bromelain pills for a few days beforehand. I was very nervous and had researched the pros and cons of this treatment ad naseum. So in terms of the procedure, it was no big deal for me.
Results? Yes? But they're very, very hard to place. They are subtle to put it mildly. I definitely wanted a more dramatic result, and feel I could have used another vials or two easily. I really considered getting more today because when I looked in the mirror after it was done I still saw my nl folds. I guess I don't want to get rid of them totally,,,but they were pretty deep. And this is literally an hour after the procedure, so I guess I can expect it to settle and dissipate even more. So...I honestly don't know what to say. The nl folds are vaguely improved, and the cheeeks are very slightly fuller. All I can say is I look a little less strained? I would like to get more though and get a better result, but this becomes expensive and I've no idea how long it will last...so I guess I'll wait a while and decide. I do not feel it in my skin much either like I'd expected-it's not hard..but perhaps that's because I'm still frozen? So, I cannot really say one way or the other right now whether it's worth it or not!
