I was very pleased with my first time fillers with him but not so much on my later visit. For now, the excess filler that was put in nasolabial fold nearly 2 years ago has affected best feature of my face (my lips). I'm finding it hard to live with it as it's not going away even after dissolving the filler. more
I had hollows under my eyes and wanted to find a doctor who specializes in injections--since it's a very delicate area and so much could go wrong. I'm lucky to have found Dr. Mabrie. He's fantastic! My under eye hollows are gone (except one area on the left side). It takes time to build it up so make sure you have a lot of time going in to do what you need done. Also it can get quite expensive... more
Well I've always had a good experience with lip fillers before. I've had it done last 1 year ago and before that 2 years with another doctor in another state and never had any problem until now. It was my first time using restylane ( have only used juvederm in past) but this doc didn't have juvederm and said restylane and juvederm are the same. So whatever I went with it did one... 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
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 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 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 have had Restylane since it first came to the US in late 2003. Started with just my smile lines and upper lip. Over the past 4+ years, I have also had treatments with Restylane under my eyes and Perlane to make me some lovely cheekbones. I have to say, that the Restylane in my smile lines and under eyes are over 1.5 years since they were treated and my lips are a phenomenon with almost 2... more
I am 53 and I noticed those darn pesky folds along the sides of my nose. I did some research and then was lucky to find an excellent doctor.
My 'Doubting Thomas' husband thought it was a waste of time and good money, but he went with me. (I previously had Botox and he did not see any great results.)
After I came out he actually was amazed. He said I looked wonderful and he was taken aback... 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
