I had restalyne injected in my tear troughs about every 6-9 months for two years with zero side effects, not even mild bruising or swelling. However, after my regular 6ish month injection in July of 2011, the nightmare began. It started as what I thought was a cyst type pimple under my eye but near my nose...that was on 8/11/11. By 8/13/11 I was admitted to the hospital, hooked up to IV... more

I got a dental block. My doctor was very gentle and caring. He took his time and really worked hard to make it look very natural. I'm small, 5'3", 90lbs so I didn't want to hideous. I truly love it. more

Had it done over a month ago under eyes. I'm 44 and I take after my father's side of the family with the extremely tired looking eyes. I called them my bags but hollows probably described as well.
People asked me if I wasn't sleeping or if I was ill or had allergies all the time. Tried every home remedy for years (ice and green tea bags, allergy pills, creams including prep H. The... more
Unless you live in Vegas and are over 50 years old-I DO NOT recommend restylane in your lips. I wanted shapelier lips, but I did not count on the protusion of my lips when looking at my profile. The results are tacky. If you have even the slightest overbite, don't do it. If you don't mind looking like a senior citizen who's had work done, a cadaver,or a stripper-do it. I wasn't born with... more
