Wow, looking at my pics is a bit of a bummer. I spent too much money and although *I* see the difference, not a single person has commented. Aside from my sister, who saw me when I was swollen two days afterward, and said "What did you do to your face?!" I think I had an unrealistic idea of how much better this would make me look. I had a vague idea that this could 'fix' how... more
I looked tired all the time and thought I needed filler in my smile lines to fix it. Dr M showed me how a bit of filler applied to the cheek areas could give that visual lift I needed, without looking like Lisa Rinna. Love the results! I look rested and not fake. more
I started looking more tired and "older" even when I felt great. My under eye area was sunken and bluish no matter how much concealer I used. After months of research, I decided to try a filler for my tear trough areas.

The filler felt really weird... more
I tried Restylane on recommendation of the aesthetic physician I visited. I bought 3 vials, but since it was my first time, I used just one the first time, and went back for the next 2 a couple of months later. The first vial was for the naso-labial folds, the left side of my mouth looked nice, the right side shows no difference at all, but felt hard and uncomfortable for a couple weeks, this... more
I am 38 and I wanted restylane to fill the little wrinkles that started to form on my top lip. I was very very nervous and have waited about a year to take the plunge.
I must say the experience so far has been far better than I expected. My lip has swelled a little bit and a tiny bit of bruising but nothing like the 'duck' lip or other stories I've read here. I had the injections yesterday... more
