I received 3 cc's of injectable fillers today: Restylane, Perlane and a third whose name I can't remember (will return with the name once I have it).
About me: I'm 43, and I have big deep circles under my eyes, long tear troughs that extend into my cheeks, and troughs in the pre-jowl sulcus area. I tend to look tired. I was never crazy about the idea of fillers because they're so temporary,... more
