"I have done my procedure 12/20; I wanted to wait before I submit the review. I love my results; Dr, Carreon did a great job with me, she is a smart lady, the minute I saw her I felt comfortable. The things I mostly like is that your health and safety are number one for them, they are very detailed and organized in a good way. I loved the staff everyone did great. I didn’t loose weight at all but I have flatter tummy and thiner waist; liposuction is not to loose wait y’all, it’s to countor your body. No pain during procedure I was relaxing but I could feel the cold wipes for the disinfectant, it was really cold, I loved the two warm pillows they gave me during procedure. After procedure you’ll experience some discomfort but it wasn’t bad at all. I was worried about pain. I’m much happier with my body, thank you Dr. Carreon, you deserve more that 5 starts ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️."- Z.P. / Google / Feb 27, 2020
"I had smart lipo just about 2 weeks ago. I feel amazing and my confidence is thru the roof already. I know this will not be my final results so I'm looking forward to them...as far as Dr.carreon she was absolutely amazing and straight forward which I appreciate very much. I cannot believe how amazing she has my body looking like. Her staff starting with Priscilla and then Gabby and Sam have been nothing but the best with so much respect from them...I felt so comfortable the whole time and the procedure went so smooth. I didn't feel a thing. Best advice I can say is don't sleep the night before and you shouldn't have an issue falling to sleep for the procedure. I'm so in love with myself. Another important thing to maximize the results be sure to get the lymphatic massages they will speed up your results and recovery. I just want to give thanks and so much love to the staff of Dr.Carreon. i would do it all over again no questions asked."- S.A. / Google / Feb 23, 2020
"Smart lipo - I cannot believe my results - She is amazing! I got smart lipo in my lower/upper abs pubic sides and my bra roll. My results do far have been amazing it's do crazy how small my stomach is. I'm 10 days post op and went for my first lymphatic massage (wish I went sooner) as I was starting to get fibrosis in some areas. I highly recommend them as they will make you feel so much better.I should have went 24-48 hours after my surgery. The swelling is there especially in my pubic area at times it was really scary but completely normal. But so far so good I cannot believe my results. The doctors assistance are amazing as well and always available for any questions I have. There bedside manner is so nice and they walk you thru every step of the process. If I could do it again I would with the same doctor no questions asked."- A. / RealSelf / Feb 16, 2020
Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm injections on average only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. Your face will be cleaned and injection spots will be marked. To minimize discomfort during the treatment, Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). After your treatment, you can resume your normal routine, but strenuous activity like exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your injections to avoid moving the filler into unintended areas.
You should experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm treatment, but you may also see mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for about 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm injections usually last up to one year; some patients find that their improvements last longer after a few years of treatments. Talk to Dr. Carreon about when to book a touch-up or full treatment at LCS Medical Spa to maintain your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. The more filler that is used, the higher the cost of the treatment. Prior to your procedure, a customized treatment plan will be created to fit your aesthetic goals and budget.
Will the treatment be painful?
Though most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about any pain. Following treatment, you may experience some slight swelling and bruising that will usually subside within a week depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any significant pain or abnormal side effects after your Juvéderm treatment.
What is the difference between a dermal filler and a muscle relaxer?
There is a great difference between dermal fillers and muscle relaxers such as BOTOX. Where BOTOX works to relax wrinkles and help prevent future wrinkles, Juvéderm helps to add volume to the face. Juvéderm is ideal for filling in deep-set wrinkles including smile lines, and it is also beneficial for creating fuller lips.
What results can I expect?
It may take a few days to see the full results of your Juvéderm treatment. Typically, it only takes one treatment session to achieve your desired outcome. However, you can schedule a follow-up appointment if you would like to add more volume than received with your initial treatment.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last anywhere from 3 – 12 months (depending on the type of Juvéderm product). This may vary based on the area in which the filler was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how the patient’s body breaks down the filler over time.
