I hated the lines around my mouth ,after researching a lot of reviews talking to a few doctor's I found dr pontell,to be the most honest and understanding dr,he answered all questions and put my mind at ease.the procedure was quick and painless and although it was just filler I look 5 years younger more
I stay in shape and try to keep a youthful appearance, but my under eye area made me look tired and old. I considered CO2 laser surgery, but too close to Summer for that this year...maybe down the road. Plus the cost was considerably more than I wanted to spend right now. Even though I read a lot of mixed reviews, I tried it anyway last Thursday. My eyes were swollen for a few days, but as... more
It has been 2 months since I had the Restylane and Botox treatments. I can't begin to say how happy I am with the results. I had Restylane injections (3 syringes) in wrinkle folds as well as a small amount of Botox in the area between my eyes for frown lines. I couldn't be more pleased with the results.
At 64 years of age, I landed a good job, 3 weeks after having this facial work done. I... more
The smokers' lines on my upper and lower lip area were driving me crazy: Lipstick bled. I looked a million years older than my actual age. Blah. I researched the Internet to see if filler would remedy this and came away with with mixed conclusions -- and knew the only thing that would permanently eradicate them was dermabrasion or another chemical procedure that would result in lengthy down... more
I've had lip fillers/augmentation multiple times over the last 4 years. I'm very happy with the results. I definitely prefer Restylane to Juvederm. I think Juvederm is bumpier. Anyway, the Restylane lasts for what seems like forever. I actually have Restylane in my upper lip still, from 2 years ago, if you can believe that.
So, the only downside of lip filler is the cost. It costs... more
I had Restylane injected in my tear troughs 5 days ago. Now, I have deep grooves extending from the bottom of my troughs to down along the base of my cheek bone. At first, I assumed it to be from swelling but since the swelling has subsided, it appears that it is a new fold or groove. My under-eye bags are still present. The only difference since the injection is a bumpy white mass on each... more
Two weeks ago I had Restylane placed under my eyes to fill eye hollows that I have had since I can remember. I am 25 and I felt like they had been getting worse as the baby fat left my face. I also had radiesse for my cheeks. The treatment itself wasn't very painful, just a few pin pricks and maybe some pressure with the radiesse. I left the office with a good amount of swelling in my... more
I had Restylane for the first time with a very conservative and trusted doctor under whose care I have been for several years. I had an initial and follow up restylane treatment to plump up my lips.After some minor swelling subsided, I did not have the desired increase in volume (we used it sparingly so as not to over do it), but I also noticed that one side of my lip was hanging down lower... more
Started off with being asked what kind of look I wanted, what shape, how much I knew about restylane. She also asked if I wanted my philtrum injected at the same time. I have never read about the necessity of it and she pointed out where she'd had hers done and explained how it helps lessen the chance of the lips looking fake. I was iffy on that so she said to think about it and we can always... more
Restylane only lasted me 2 months. I have had the injections done by 2 different doctors (one injected very deeply and one almost at the skin surface). It made no difference because after about 2 months, the deep lines around my mouth started to show and by 3 months they were as if I had done nothing.
I have had Restylane injected under my eyes by both of... more
