I have been getting restalyne for my bottom lip. I have been doing this for the past 2 years, finally I decided to plump my bottom lip a little more than usual.... At this time I'm not sure if I made the right choice since my lip is extremely purple after the procedure. This is the first time it turns this purple and swollen. Im not sure if I'm going to be satisfied with the outcome since I... more
The great lip gene (much to my dismay) went to my younger sister, and I wound up with a small lower lip and a non-existent upper. In my 20’s I got away with those lip plumping glosses (Fusion, Venom, etc.) but I began to wonder if I shouldn’t step it up and try a little longer lasting solution. I’ve been wanting to try a little filler but, I’ve been a little apprehensive about taking... more
I'm in my late thirties and wanted to somewhat capture my youth and also to do preventative maintenance on my face. My motivation was my co-workers, all my co-workers are in their mid 20's, I feel very uncomfortable. I really love the outcome. I know that i will be keeping this up and going back for maintenance. more
I had a botched rhinoplasty in the past that left a long dent across my nose. Dr. Klein filled it with Restylane. It is a quick procedure and only slightly uncomfortable. My nose is not perfect now, but it is about 80% improved. There is a little Restylane left from the first procedure, so I am going back to hopefully get even better results. I only wish the product lasted longer. more
Dr. Elam put Retylane in my lips to define the lip line. I am 47 years old and as we age your lip line fades. I did NOT want duck lips. He always listens to his patients and makes them look natural!!!! He has done other procedures on me and I have been so happy with everything! I am adding pictures of my lips. They are swollen as he just injected them 2 hours ago. I will post another picture... more
Just completed my third treatment in about 4 years and am very, very happy with the results, again. My doctor is both skillful and artistic; both important qualities for obtaining the best results. Absolutely no bumps or uneven areas. I am a 64 year old woman with the normal sagging around the mouth and jowls. After the treatment, I look and feel more youthful. I have seen this procedure... more
I had those pesky "smokers lines" above and below lips-although, I am not a smoker.
Went to a doctor in Irvine, California that I had gone to before for Botox. He is a skilled injector and very conservative in his approach (which I like).
I am so pleased with the results- virtually minimal swelling, no bruising and elimination of most of the offending lines.
My Dr.... more
Turning 40 in a couple months and I saved up to treat myself.
Today is day 2- I have NO SWELLING, NO BRUISING, and NO PAIN- I am so thrilled with the results. Today I have applied my usual makeup routine with no concerns. My original goal in getting Restylane was to look younger and refreshed, but I had concerns about my appearance being "altered" and looking... more
Many people think that lip injections are very uncomfortable, but I beg to differ. I believe if you go to a good plastic surgeon, they will keep you extremely comfortable. Instead of doing a dental block, I just used a topical numbing cream. I love the way Dr. G does my injections. My lips look enhanced, but not fake at all. more
Had Restylane to make the bridge of my nose taller. Spent $399 for the 0.8cc syringe. I went to my Dr twice for my non-surgical rhinoplasty. 1st time my Dr. only injected 0.4cc and asked me to go back for touch up in 2weeks to use up the rest of 0.4cc.
The result is fabulous! I had a bruise for ~1.5 weeks but my nose looked much more taller and defined, as if I had the surgery. Downside is... more
I had restylane in nasial folds and it just makes me look fleshier not more youthful. Juvederm did nothing to make my lips look bigger and botox did not get rid of my between eye furrows, just made my eyelids droop. Very depressed. more
In sales, I need to look and feel my best. In my early 40's I started to notice lines on my face that were not there 10 years ago. Now, with fillers I can look 10 years younger....and who doesn't need that? more
I had much more wrinkles and indentations under my eyes than I should for my age. The injections did plump the areas, but now I just have giant bags under my eyes. (like the cowardly lion from Wizard of Oz). more
I had Restylane injected under my eyes to fill in under eye circles. At first it seemed great. One eye seemed to "take" better than the other side. A few days later I realized that I have lumpy bumps under my eyes when I smile. One cheek seems to be higher than the other and I feel like I look like a gargoyle because the photos pick up every shadow under my... more
I had Restylane injected under my eyes 2 years ago to fill in my under eye hollows. The doctor who injected the Restylane did a wonderful job. I had no bruising and it looked very natural. My friends couldn't tell I had anything done but they all told me I looked well rested.
Restylane lasted for almost two years in this area. I was told that it lasts a lot longer in areas that don't have... more
You must get a good doctor who can inject correctly without bruising and in the right places. I've used my Dr. for 10 years for Botox. He is a doctor of opthamology, but only does cosmetic injections now. He is super good. Restylane lasts a long time. He uses it to turn up the corners of my mouth, erase smile lines in the naso-labial folds, erase smile dimples (wrinkles on the sides of my... more
