Question

Hi, I am thinking of getting Juvederm fillers for nasolabial lines and, folds. Would you recommend this?

Answer

Thank you for your question, Diana. It’s a bit difficult to tell you what I recommend for you without seeing you and having a look at what you wish to treat. If you’re asking me whether I think Juvederm is a good filler, then yes, I use it a lot on my patients with very good results. I’ve been using it for a very long time with great success.

If I can just advise you on one thing, most often, the nasolabial folds occur due to the loss in cheek volume. The cheeks sag, so the folds become evident. Like I said, I have not actually seen you, but if you are losing cheek volume, it’s best for you to rather replace the cheek volume with filler, and this will automatically improve the nasolabials. Your Dr would most likely advise you of this.

Hi, I recently developed a rash on the side of my underarm (just outside of the underarm area). I thought it was just heat or friction, but it has been a week and it has not gone away or shown any change. It doesn’t hurt, but its sensitive, red ans makes me feel self conscious in strappy shirts. Is there something else that could’ve caused this and what is the best way to treat it?
