Juvederm before and after picture for cheeks

Juvederm and Belotero Before and After
Juvederm ultra plus xc and Belotero injected via Cannula Technique by Dr. Calvin Lee

This is not done with Juvederm Voluma.  As of November 2013, I do not have experience with Juvederm Voluma.  Juvederm Voluma, however, is on it’s way to the office in Modesto, CA and I will soon have experience with this new dermal filler.  [update: I’ve used my first syringe of Juvederm Voluma on 12/24/13.  It was a very satisfying and positive experience.   I look forward to having even more experience with Juvederm Voluma.  I was able to use my 27g 1.5 inch cannula for Juvederm Voluma injections].

To improve my cosmetic dermal filler craft, I’m analyzing my past week. 95% of this result was performed with CANNULAS as an instrument of liquid implant delivery and a whole bunch of other secrets. There’s more that I would like to do with fillers for her, but my instructions were only to work on under eyes (tear troughs) and cheeks.

Background info:

Patient had lost a good deal of weight and it is showing in her face.  Options include face lift.  However, she chose to use Juvederm, Belotero, and Botox.  In the before picture she had Botox and Juvederm expertly done at another plastic surgery practice in our town of Modesto, CA.  I added upon that work to get the 13 day “after” picture using only Belotero and Juvederm.

Axillary Hyperhidrosis Botox (excessive sweating) treatments in Modesto by Calvin Lee, MD

Hyperhidrosis – sweating under arms

I perform Botox injections for Axillary Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating – underarm). However, I’m always in the interest of getting the patients the best value. I don’t take any forms of medical insurance, and the procedure with me costs $1000 (price as of 11/15/13, subject to change), and the results last about 9-12 months when injected in a focused pattern after localizing testing with starch (otherwise it’s probably more like 6 months). I’ve heard that medical insurance might cover this procedure, have you found a good place to get this procedure done under insurance? Is the doctor good at it and does the insurance really cover the procedure adequately where the doctor feels that he is getting paid for the Botox used? Botox is an expensive product to acquire. I would like to send patients to a insurance provider who will do a great job. So far, I personally haven’t found this. So for now, many people are stuck with me for the $1000 procedure.
