On November 13 I had botox and juvederm. Usually a thoughtful person, I trusted the vein doctor whose office I have used before for vein issues. Basically, he offered me these services when I went in for some vein work, and I boldly jumped when I should have run away. His nurses assured me of his competence and he has always seemed a very cautious and thorough type. He did a good job on my forehead with botox and some juvederm; first time for me - I guess normal maintenance stuff. But the injection above the bridge of my nose thickened that area. That is nothing compared to my cheecks. He injected at the cheekbone which has resulted in a puffy looking face with a depression under the pillow at my cheeks. My eyes are sunk into this puff when I smile, and marionette lines appear deeper than they were before. What a mess. I still have some discoloration (blue) under my right eye. What was I thinking!! I went from a relatively attractive 58 year old with aging issues to looking a bit deformed and afraid to smile. Please don't let this happen to you.
I emailed the doctor reporting my issues and have a follow up appointment next week. I am afraid to go back to this doctor for a correction, especially after everything I have read (a little too late!!) on these posts.
If anyone has a referral to someone EXCELLENT I can see in SE PA please share. Holidays are coming; wish I hadn't done this.
