I'm 43 and have never had any types of injections put into my face. Within the last couple of years my wrinkles have really started appearing. My friend recommended making an appointment with Dr. Jason Emer. Dr. Emer recommended that restylane would work best for my face. I was a little nervous, but I was told that this is a procedure that can be reversed if I am not happy with it. I... more
I have had deep hollows under neath my eyes since I was a child. I always assumed it was dark circles from poor nutrition or lack of sleep. After doing my research turns out that its a genetic thing and theres no cream that could plump me up enough to make a real difference. I went to my favorite med spa, Dr. Berkleys in Studio City and we ended up putting 3 WHOLE SYRINGES under my eyes! Yes I... more
Dr. Zoumalan was very professional and spent a lot of time accessing the situation around my eyes. Since I have had prior blepharoplasty surgeries and all the fat had been removed from under my eyes, now that I am almost 68 I was losing more volume. He injected restalyn and another filler yesterday. He will decide later if we can improve even more. I do think it will look better and does... more
The $2200 reflects one syringe of Voluma $900-950 and 2 of Restylane. I went to Dr. Stevens 2/19 of this year for Botox & Restylane injections for my lines & dark circles. I had Restylane once before, about a year ago & it helped. He suggested Voluma for my cheeks since I have a thin face & said I would love it & lasted 2 years. He injected 1 syringe along with1 of Restylane. I had to go back... more
I visited Dr.Sayah's office yesterday for a Restylane treatment. His staff was very courteous, and his office decor was really nice! I really enjoyed the environment. My wait time was minimal. When I went in he was very honest with me. I needed to even out one cheek on my face with the other, as my left side had developed a line through it and was less pronounced than my right side.... more
I have deep scaring on my checks from years of acne. It makes my face look uneven and tired. My acne is now gone and so my dermatologist wanted to inject me with Restylane to help pump up the depressions. I read some reviews online that suggested icing the area for 20 or so minutes before going to the appointment so I did that. When I went into the Drs. office they applied numbing cream and... more
I was terrified to get Restalyne injected in my tear troughs. I had a nose job & juvederm under my eyes 13 months prior and was bruised for 5 months at least. No joke! It was awful!
But after a year, my eye bags were so bad, I couldn't stand it.
Went to a diff PS & he & his staff were so kind. Not one bruise! Swollen the day after but that's it. No bruise, no probs, NO BAGS!! I hope these... more
For starters I never write reveiws, but this procedure was a big deal to me. Growing up I've always had hollow eyes, but as I got older (mid 20s) they began to become so much worse. I couldn't smile because they would create two huge creases, not to mention the dark shadows and the fat pockets that began to form. I literally stopped smiling in pictures due to this. I looked tired no matter... more
I got married about two years ago and wanted to look my best for our wedding photos, so I decided to get some Botox and fillers. I was very nervous about doing this before the big day but I decided to just go for it, and I am so happy that I did. I have been addicted ever since! I lovvvve it!
The Botox really helps to make me look younger and more relaxed. I really like my doctor's... more
I WALKED OUT IN TEARS.
When: Friday, March 29, 2013
I had 2 different experiences here that day. The very end/check out leaving me feeling like piece of trash, walking out the door.
I had spent over ten years of my young life in a really abusive relationship that left me far more aged than my years. Bad habits, and physical abuse can take a really bad... more
I am happy with my results for restylane. I am 24 years old and was unhappy about the dark circles under my eyes and tired of always looking tired no matter how much I tried to cover them. I did a lot of research online before opting for this procedure. It is pretty expensive $500/syringe. My Dr. suggested two syringes for my hollows but I decided to stick with one for now. I was a little... more
It’s been a big year for my face. I turned 46 (sneaks up on you). A medication change resulted in an unintentional weight loss (I know, boo hoo - but I was skinny to start with and losing 15 lbs did me no favors in terms of health, strength or sexiness, believe me). Even though my life has been going really well, I felt like I was looking tired and unhealthy.
And then, I started a new... more
Horrible experience and way too much money trying to fix the damage from Restylane injections under my eyes and the later Vitrase to dissolve it. The cost I listed is the total cost I spent in trying to fix the result of the initial Restylane injection and includes the cost of that original injection. I was badly overfilled, left with extremely noticeable discoloration and dents.
I tried... more
I had Restylane injected in my tear troughs 6-1/2 years ago. The tear troughs had always been deep but it had gotten to the point where no amount of cover up worked. The Restylane worked very well and I was thrilled with the results. It lasted about 1-1/2 years and then I went back for more.
I had a shiner under my right eye after the first time, but it went away without a problem. During... more
Two years ago I had upper eyelid surgery for some sagging eyelid skin. Now I know this is best fixed with fillers as it’s due to volume loss, but two years ago I didn't. Unfortunately the surgeon didn't either and by taking out too much fat and skin, he ruined my once beautiful eyes with his horrible old school technique, leaving me with an "operated look", ugly scars and hollow eyes. I... more
A couple years ago, I had restalyne done by a top eye surgeon who had done waay too much and I hated it.(made my under eyes puffy) After finally having it removed with enzyme- I was miserable with the way my under eyes looked -(don't listen to any plastic surgeon when they tell you that the enzyme to remove restalyne does not affect your own collagen- it does!!!! ) I desperately needed it... more
Dr Gal Aharonov did a great job of filling my upper eyelids with Restylane to fix the damage caused by another doctor (George Marcells) in Sydney who did an illadvised and unnecessary blepharoplasty 6 years before that. Dr A also did the lower lids.
He knows the correct science of what makes youthful eyes. He avoids that horrible traditional blepharoplasty of exising skin and removing fat... more
I previously had Restylane in some random areas on my face (with a different doctor) and I didn't like it because it only lasted a few weeks. However, I recently had it under my eyes to fill in the hollows and I LOVE IT. So far it has lasted 6 months and I don't think I will be needing a touch-up anytime soon. It has really changed my life and my self confidence. I am 24 and had hollow... more
I had restalyne aprox .3 cc from a .5cc syringe i purchased injected yesterday into my bottom lip only (my top lip I was happy with ) i felt confident and looked good enough to return to work. That evening I had very little swelling, I woke up at 1am to find my lip had swollen uncontrolabley and looked like a sausage! Quickly I grabbed a Budweiser can out of the fridge and used it as a cold... more
I looked tired all the time and I hated it! I was nervous at first but once he started I saw that there was no pain. I had in mind that having a needle around my eyes was going to be painful, but not at all. He talked to me the whole entire time and took his time. The only thing that I didn't like was the down time; I had two black eyes for a little over a week. But once I was healed I... more
