I had breast implants, and was less nervous getting that done than getting Restalyne injections in my tear trough areas. I've been researching this procedure for almost 5 years, and knew of the complications that can arise. Having said that, I knew there is a wide variance of results that can be achieved, and just was hoping for the best. I was terrified. I got lucky, AND had a experienced... more
I just had restylane this afternoon for lines above my upper lip (smoker's lines) and to plump lips ever so slightly.

This was hard for me because I... more
I was used as a model for training, supervised and in part done by a company rep and very experienced dermatologist, I did not pay for the injections.
I am 49, and had deep "marionette" lines.
I had the procedure yesterday. My face is terribly swollen, and bruised. I am in significant pain. I can't eat, it hurts.
Last night I looked like "The Joker" from Batman.... more
