Juvederm For Nasolabial Folds - Austin, TX
I'm a newly 27 year old who is/was very In secure...
Returned For More but...
However, here I am a few days post and it's the same! I mean, definitely an improvement from the original, but the second syringe didn't do anything! I've seen before and after pictures of people who have had two syringes and mine looks nothing like that. I should have no visible lines in that area after 2 syringes.
I also had some injected in my lips. Again, I LOVED the way they looked during the "swell" period, but less than a week later, my lips looks the same! I wonder if my body is metabolizing the Juvederm differently or something? I hate that the results are not staying. I was informed by the doctor (and real self of course!) that the lips would look much different after the swelling went down, but they look the same as they did before the Juvederm! Ugh. I'm getting frustrated.
Yeaterday I woke up with a sensation that the left side of my face was swollen and a weird metallic taste in my mouth with a burning/sore sensation on the left side of my tongue towards the back. I immediately jumped out of bed to look in the mirror. To my relief, my face was not swollen. However, when I felt around my jaw and my high cheekbone area where I felt the swollen sensation, it did feel tender. I ended up finding a lump under my eye/high cheek bone. The weird thing is, I did not have Juvederm injected in either of those areas [or near them]. I called my doctor and she got me in that day to check it out. She didn't feel as though it was related to the Juvederm. Oddly, I woke up today with two more of those bumps around the left nasolabial fold area. These aren't tender, but I can feel them and see these visually in the mirror. It's making my left cheek appear droopy. I don't know what the heck it could be from. I highly suspect the Juvederm, but I don't know. Anyone else have similar results?
Oh! And I did have 20 units of botox placed on eleven lines and 4 on my chin.
She's so down to earth, outgoing and upbeat. She exactly what I'd expect or like to experience in all doctors I see! I'm so glad I chose her office. Furthermore, her staff is beyond friendly, comforting and helpful as well. They were VERY patient with my hundreds of questions and concerns.
