I have been wanting to do something about my eyes for quite a while and finally I found out that creams were not working for me. Finally I set up a consultation at a local medical spa in Aptos called Laser Hair and Skin Solutions with Karen. She sent my picture to the doctor and he agreed that the tear trough filler would work great for me. I was so nervous but I had experience with fillers so... more
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
I had my first restalyn treatment in Dec, 2011. i bought 1 vial from a living social promo for $295. I was 42 (and 10 months old) and my frown lines were pretty deep. i was so self conscience because they started when I was 40 and nearly 3 years later they were all I saw in photos. The first vial did a lot. My husband was really impressed and fine with the $ spent. We don't have much... more

I was unhappy with the dark circles and sagging skin under my eyes. My doctor recommended trying Restylane to fill the hollows. He states that loss of collagen is the reason for the sagging skin. He is a very skilled injector. He only used a small amount and I am due back in the office in 4 weeks to see where we are and if I need additional treatment.
It was been 5 days since I had the... more
So I am writing this review for people who have experienced Restalyne lumps in the wrong location that don't go away by themselves.
I had Restalyne and Perlane injected in several areas (lips, nasolabial folds and tear troughs) 11 months ago and even though I loved the overall effect I had a problem in one area. While having the Restalyne injection in my tear through I got one of... more
Immediate results-i guess, I mean u definitely see the swelling ha!I have uneven lips and very deep creases under my eyes and I'm only 21. No concealer can cover it. I've had it since I was 12 or 13.What can I do???? I've tried massaging and putting ice. more
I chose Restylane not so much for vanity but because I was tired of people telling me I look tired! I am 38 and the nasolabial folds along my nose were really aging me.
I just had the injection of 3 tubes and the dermatologist really wanted to use more. (I agree but at $575 each...) Right now, I am very happy with the results. Will see how the Botox turns out in a couple of weeks. more
I am 61 years old and had never had any procedures done to my face. I decided to brave it and have my marionette lines and nasolabial folds filled in. I am very afraid of needles but decided to brave it.
The Dr. had me put a numbing cream on my face just before the procedure.It was a mild discomfort but nthing more than that.
It's now been a little over a month and I'm thrilled with the... more
I've been getting Restylane injected into my lips, and some of the wrinkles around them, for a little more than a year and a half. I love the effect, and have had no side effects other than some bruising and swelling (when I was taking a lot of Advil). The injections do hurt quite a lot, but I feel that it's worth it to correct that caved-in look that happened when I went into menopause. I... 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
Restylane was a waste of money I didn’t have to waste. It lasted about 3 weeks and then was gone completely. I had tried it a few months before and that lasted a total of a month and a half – a lot less than they say it will last (minimum 3 months).
I had Restylane in my lips and the hollows under my eyes last time. The lip results were gone in about a week. That’s about how long my... more
