Juvéderm® XC Reviews
"Lips, Lips, Lips! - Beverly Hills, CA - I have always had very thin lips. I've always loved a bold lipstick look however I have never been able to wear any because it just did not look right on my lips. I also wasn't a fan of over lining. I was on the fence because I do not like needles and many reviews said they did not notice a difference. However, this was the best decision by far that I have made. My lips now look full and amazing! I can now wear any and every lipstick color I can think of! I can now wear lipstick confidently! "- G. / RealSelf / May 01, 2016
"I have had botox two times prior to seeing Dr. Trott. I am young but I do not like the 11 that shows up between my brows. The last few times I had it done it didn't look natural and it felt frozen. However Trott was a completely different experience, I loved the way my forehead looked and it was still natural. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her!!!"- S.A. / Yelp / Aug 08, 2013

"botox without the plastic look! - Beverly Hills, CA - I'm a 38 year old woman and I started to notice the small beginning stages of crows feet around my eyes and the lines on my forehead. I started to feel down about myself because just like every other woman out there, I don't want to look old. I started to think about botox and fillers but was extremely scared because I didn't want to look fake and plastic. I started to research different doctors and was came across Dr. Trott. I decided to set up an appointment for a consultation. Walking into Dr. Trott's office I was promptly greeted by her receptionist who was courteous. I was called back to meet with Dr. Trott by her office manager/assistant Ady. She was very nice and reassured me that there was nothing to be nervous about as I am terrified of needles. I met with Dr. Trott and discussed my concerns. She gave me my options and discussed how the procedure would go if I chose to go through with it. I was impressed and scheduled an appointment. On the day of my procedure, I was once again courteously greeted and made to feel like I was at home as I waited to be called. The procedure of botox and fillers were absolutely painless. Dr. Trott was extremely gentle and applied a lotion to numb the parts where the needle was to be injected. Her assistant Ady was by her side the entire time. I was advised that I would have some swelling the next day and to apply ice to the injected areas. Dr. Trott's assistant Ady was kind enough to call the next day to see how I was feeling. Once the swelling went down I started to noticed the difference. The lines around my eyes were no longer visible and the lines on my forehead were also gone but I was still left with the movement in my forehead. I've seen some people that are over injected and have no emotion or movement on their face. I am one happy patient have recommended Dr. Trott to my friends and family. I do plan to return when touch ups are needed. "- R. / RealSelf / Oct 14, 2015

What to Expect
The doctor will conduct an evaluation of your skin before performing a Juvéderm injection to discover which areas would benefit from treatment and how many syringes will be needed. The regions of your face to be treated will be marked with ink before the doctor deftly injects the face with Juvéderm. If needed, a numbing cream can be applied before the injections to reduce patient anxiety and discomfort. Once the medication is in the skin, the doctor will give the skin a slight massage to evenly spread the Juvéderm to all needed areas.
Juvéderm injection results are usually visible right after away. It may still temporarily appear to be swollen and red, but you should be able to return to your normal activities right after your treatment. We recommend that all patients avoid strenuous activities, like exercising, for at least 24 hours. The results of Juvéderm last about 6 – 9 months in most patients, so patients should schedule touch-up appointments to keep their appearance consistent. Juvéderm may be used with plastic surgery, nonsurgical treatments, and other wrinkle injections to enhance your final results.
