Voluma in Cheeks -- Uneven and Worm Like on Right Side 12 Hours Post. Glendale, CA

I decided to never do Botox again and really did my research as to what was aging my face: Gravity. I have a pretty youthful face already, most people think I'm ten years younger or more, so a few little wrinkles never made me look bad. However, I am insecure about aging as many women are. I decided on Voluma today, had the rather quick procedure and now... I'm scared. The left side? Looks... READ MORE

Juvederm in Nasolabial Lines. Overfill? Lines worse - Santa Monica, CA

I had juvederm in my naso lines about five months ago. It looked great. No downtime, barely any swelling, no bruising, I just looked fantastic. I noticed it started to fade just a bit and figured getting a touch up would be OK, but I wasn't sure. Maybe it could overfill? My doctor (a new one -- in Santa Monica -- I had a botox scare with my last one and wrote a lot about it!), who seems good,... READ MORE

Botox in Forehead. Too Much or Wrong for Me (Six Days Post) Glendale, CA

After having about 14 units of Botox in my frown lines a month prior (the 11 lines) and with the result looking very natural (I could still frown, move, etc. it just looked softer and less wrinkly -- perfect), I decided to do my upper forehead. Doctor used only about 8-10 units (not sure but not more than 10). By day three, it looked fine though I was a little worried about slightly swollen... READ MORE

I'm 42. I only had a half a syringe, with a little more added just because my doc was being nice, hence, the price tag. It looks fine now and really subtle. But I've had more than a few people say "Your skin looks great" or "You look so... READ COMMENT

Thank you for your comment freefallin. But... three months? That's a long time to wait to feel satisfied. I would think that doctors should start out slower and I can see why you want to do that in the future. One syringe divided and... READ COMMENT

Thanks for commenting, Chris! I have had fillers once before. Juvederm in my nl folds and, yes, I had some issues. A raised lumpiness on one side. (What is the one side of my face?!) But that went away in about a month and it was fine... READ COMMENT

I didn't dissolve! It got better. In just a few weeks. It looked just fine. I was tripping out and just waited it out for about a month. I had the lines filled again, touched up this year with no problem. I'm so glad it was OK and it's... READ COMMENT

Bertbrows: Yay! I'm so glad you're feeling better and since I'm a little late reading this, I bet you're even better now. I am totally fine and have been for a while. I think this stuff lasted about three months for me. And after two... READ COMMENT
