I was plagued with dark under eye circles that were getting worse and worse. I researched everywhere on the best remedy, including this site, where I found story after story on the horrors of Restylane under the eyes. I myself have had many bad experiences with filler injections from Med Spas in Los Angeles and I am extremely paranoid about recovery: swelling, bruising, etc. and bad, or... more

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.
Time and again during my research, Dr. M kept turning up as the most experienced in this procedure. The fact that he's an MD and board certified facial... more
I had Restyland injected to make my hollow, dark undereye circles less apparent. I went to a Dr. I'd heard good things about in SF. I have very pale skin and thought I would get enormous bruises, but I was suprised to only get a purple mark near the site of one of the injections that faded to a red mark in a few days and is now (3 weeks later) almost gone. The filler felt really weird... more
I have had several types of lasor treatments performed to help acne scars (Fraxel, NLight, Microderm) and nothing has really helped the deeper flat scars.My Dr. suggested fillers and so I purchased a .5 CC vial of Restylane an more
I had one syringe of Restylane injected into my nasolabial folds. This was on top of one syringe of Juvederm two weeks prior. (The Juvederm wasn't quite doing the trick, but is more expenseive than the Restylane, so my doctor & I decided to try the combo to save me $200.) Anyway, so far so good.I love the result but I'm aware that s 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
I've had great results with fillers over the last three years. I was very ill in 2004 and lost over 30 pounds (which I did not need to lose). At any rate, it was after that I decided to try the fillers as the huge weight loss left me with serious nasolabia folds. My dermatologist (who I believe are the best trained in fillers even over plastic surgeons)is very conservative and often he's had... more
