So I finally decided to take the plunge and get rid of these hollows that have been annoying me for 3 years now. I read many horror stories on this site of people going for filler injections to correct the under eye area and ending with issues that were far worse than their initial concern. For this reason I was very diligent about doing my research and had multiple (5) consultations. I had a... more
I had deep ridges that extended from my inner eye to my cheek. Unfortunately they are hereditary and asymmetrical.
I put off my appointment a couple times because I was scared of the recovery with bruises and swelling.
However, i had hardly any.
I was a fanatic with several doses of arnica per day for 1 week prior. I took several doses of bromelian and quercitin for 3 days prior and arnica... more

Also, I wanted to get my nasolabial lines fixed. He also injected them with Restylane. He injected a total of 4... more
I thought I looked tired and older than I felt. When I looked in the mirror I lines running down from my nose to my mouth and my chin looked uneven. The injections were associated with minimal discomfort and the results are immediately seen. When I looked in the mirror I felt very pleased and relieved.

After debating and researching for well over a year, I finally had the courage to have Restylane injected into my tear troughs and I am thrilled. There was minimal discomfort, not really pain. I had slight bruising and swelling for about two weeks. Definitely would not hesitate to have it done again. more
I paid $500 to have the restylane injections in my lips which were thinning. my lips puffed up and got blue in some areas. the dr. said "oh youre going to have bruising" the swelling went down a few days later. the results were not noticeable at all no improvement. wouldnt do restylane again more
