I was really becoming self conscious about my nasiolabial folds as I had lost a bit of weight and my face seemed to age quite a bit. The lines in my forehead had become deeper and I wanted a solution. I saw an ad for a group discount for .5ml of Juvederm applied to most areas of the face and thought I would give it a go (groupon price was approx. $150, this was done in a clinic in Leeds, UK and all prices were in Pounds Sterling). After consulting with the nurse practitioner who was very knowledgeable, she thought the .5ml would be enough for the nasolabial folds and regarding the lines on my face, she said she thought botox would eliminate most of those over time. I had always considered botox so I was willing to give that a try as well. I decided on Botox to the three areas of my face - between eyebrows, forehead, and around eyes.
I felt very comfortable and in safe hands. All questions I had were answered by the advanced nurse practitioner named Petra. She has an extensive background and has worked as a aesthetic nurse for many years. I do say I have a fairly high pain tolerance and felt little discomfort with the Juvederm to the nasolabial folds. The Botox was like a slight pin prick although some of these were more uncomfortable than others. Pain - no. Immediately I could see the results regarding the nasolabial folds and was extremely happy I had decided to get them done.
The reason I have waited a year to review is because I have since been back for a top-up in my nasolabial folds. I have had Botox regularly (I seem to be fine having it done every 4 months) and I have recently added volume in my cheeks with Juvederm Voluma. (reviews of this later) Plan on going in for a subtle lip enhancement!
