"I had a few consultations before getting to Dr. Lawrence. Once it was over, my mom and I looked at each other and said "she's the one!". Her skill and knowledge seeps through when she talks to you. She handled me with such care and attention, almost in a maternal but professional way. I had my breast augmentation done during the COVID-19 pandemic so my support system wasn't allowed to come in with me. I was a little nervous about that but Dr. Lawrence and Nurse Angela, made me feel safe and protected. I hope I won't be needing anymore cosmetic surgery in the future but if I do, Dr. Lawrence is my first stop! Period! Side note: my boobs look soooooooooooooooooooooooo good! Thanks Dr. Lawrence, YOU DID THAT!"- V.N. / Yelp / May 08, 2020
"Very safe. Great location on ground floor. You must wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, no touch when paying. All paperwork done online before visit. Dr Lawrence very professional & was able to diagnose my problem & actually referred me to a general surgeon & offered her services if I still needed or wanted them. Thank you."- A.S. / Yelp / May 06, 2020
"Dr. Lawrence is one of a kind in her profession. I came in after suffering for 2.5 years from being ill due to breast implants and she was the first doctor who simply believed me. I had gone to so many doctors after my implants were put in with problems and not one of them agreed that my implants were the problem. I chose her because she believed me and I recommend her because she did an amazing job and I feel WONDERFUL!!"- N. / RealSelf / Mar 31, 2020

"Dr Lawrence is very good at listening to you and has such a great bedside manner. With that being said… she and her staff are great at what they do. I have been going to the sandy springs office for over a year and I am always met with a friendly smile and attitude from the time I walk until the time I leave. I would recommend this doctor and staff to anyone reading this review."- M.Z. / Google / Mar 04, 2020
Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm injections usually only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on which areas are being corrected. Your face will be cleaned and injection spots will be selected. To reduce discomfort during the process, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. After your treatment, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine, but strenuous activity, including exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your treatment to avoid massaging the filler into other areas.
You typically experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm procedure, but you may also develop mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm dermal fillers usually are visible for up to one year. Some patients find that their improvements last longer after multiple years of consistent treatments. Talk to Dr. Lawrence about when to book a touch-up or full session at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery to keep your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
Your cost for Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Prior to the administration of your Juvéderm injections, a customized treatment plan will be made to fit your goals and budget. After this, your injector can discuss cost estimates and payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Although 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 pain. Following the treatment, you may feel some slight swelling and bruising that will usually disappear in 5 – 7 days, depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any lasting pain or abnormal side effects after your treatment.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Fillers and relaxers improve wrinkles throughout the face, but with different approaches. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, correct dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle contractions. Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler that corrects static wrinkles by increasing volume. Juvéderm is designed to correct mild to moderate wrinkles or to add volume to your lips and cheeks.
What results can I expect?
It may take 1 – 3 days to see the full results of your treatment. Generally, it only takes one session to achieve your goals. However, you can schedule a second appointment if you would like to enhance your results or increase volume.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last from one to two years. This will vary, depending on what filler is used and where it was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how fast your body breaks down the product.
