Too much Juvederm – I look bloated!

Hi Dr. Irwin, I went to the Dr. because I wanted Juvederm for my marionette lines. The doctor ended up injecting juvederm in my cheeks also, building up my face, which he said was sunken in. I HATE what my face looks like. I am used to having a thin face and my face looks very full and fat to me. My daughter's wedding is in 3weeks. Is there a way to reduce the juvederm? I am also bruised from the juvederm injections around my mouth. Thank you very much.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
