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 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.

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'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
