I have always had dark circles, but the majority of it is from tear trough deformity. So when certain lights hit my face wrong, I look very tired.
My injections took 1 week to heal. I felt that I could have used a little more product. I had 1 full syringe injected into each eye.
It is now April 2015 and I returned for a little more... still waiting to see the final results of my 2nd round of... more
I had a great result of one syringe for my jowl and tear trough a year ago at this particular clinic administered by a different nurse. I was so pleased with the results! Fast forward recently I discovered how great Botox is and how I really don't care for Radiesse. I still needed to get my tear troughs done to help resist that exhausted and aged look I feel I have on certain days. Today was... more
I went to the Dr. after purchasing a groupon, and of course reading great reviews about the dr. I went in and he saw me right away. This is the 2nd time I've had my lips done. The first time was with another reputable dr. and while I felt he did what he was supposed to do, that dr. lacked providing me information, listening to my concerns, and rather I felt he was trying to hurry the... more
Not sure how i feel about this product. To me they look the same. This was taken one month after injection. One syringe was used. The swelling went down after 5 days and I noticed nothing had really changed. Had a hard time eating with them , seemed like all the volume was on the inside of my mouth. I personally would stick to just lip liners and lip glosses not wasting my money. more
First let me say, I have never written a review before and I have waited about a month to write this to make sure that the Restylane just needed time to settle. I got a great deal on Restylane from Living Social at the WELL MEDICAL ARTS in Burien so I thought I'd give this medical spa a try. I had Restylane injected under my eyes. I was nervous about it because I know that it's important that... more
I went to Dr. Young to correct under eye hollows caused by a lower blepharoplasty performed by another doctor (she said she wouldn't remove fat but she did anyway while I was under general anesthesia). I had seen Dr. Young's before and after pictures showing how he corrected under eye hollows with Restylane and I was impressed. I also thought that with his fat transfer experience he'd be good... more
I had Restylane injected under both eyes and around my mouth in November 2011. Under my eyes, It looked like it was injected in the wrong spot (not in the depressions under my eyes, but below that). It looked like I had ridges under my eyes. I went back 3 times to have it disolved under my right eye and 1 time under my left eye. I am left with what looks like a permanent black eye under my... more
Loved the results. I did get black eyes or some bruising which was a bummer but livable. The Dr also added more in after a few weeks so they really are perfectionists and will take the time to make sure you look good. If not the first time but the next time. more
I had my lips done with Restylane 2 months ago. They look the same shape, just bigger. Like they were 5 years ago. 1 cc
My lips were throbbing after the numbing wore off. Used an ice pack for relief. Had bruises and tiny scabs for 2 days.
They look natural and pass the "kiss test"! I will definitely do it again. more
Great! Was a little nervous. I have always had deep under eye tear troughs, or hollows, they would always appear to look worse in overhead lights, I just couldn't stand it anymore! I had "valleys" under my eyes, I looked like a cheetah! haha!
Anyway, the injections took it away, I don't have any bruising, but I made sure not to take any aspirin products, and I ate a lot of pineapple the... more
Less is definately more with this treatment. I wish I could have done this sooner. But I really wanted to find the right Dr. and I have. Dr. ______ was amazing. She really took great care in trying not to have my face bruise and swell. Slowly and methodically she filled in my tear trough area and my cheek area that needed to be filled.
Amazing results immediately. I was able to go out and... more
I had restylane injected in to the tear troughs to help my chronic dark circles.Even through the numbing cream it did smart quite a bit, and the sounds! There were crunching sounds that weren't so pleasant, but it was all worth it to wake up in the morning and not have a half hour spackle job of applying layers of primer and concealer and setting powders. I only required 1cc, and she didn't... more
I had a few scars from puppy bites. Two on my cheek & two on my nose. I also had an acne scar on my chin. I got 350 cc's and after filling in the scars I had enough left over to fill in the laugh lines
I am sooooo happy~~!! The scars are gone, I look 8 - 10 years younger. The first t more
I can't give a full review right away, but I figured I would edit this one as my recovery progressed.
I had 0.5-0.75 of a Restylane syringe injected into my smile lines about a half hour ago, and my face is still a bit numb. I don't mind the swollenness at all (hopefully it's not that much, because I'd like it to stay relatively close to where it is now), and the only redness I have so far... more
I'm a 52 year old female and after loosing 10 lbs 2 years ago from cancer surgery, I have never been able to gain the weight back in my face which caused very deep labial fold between my nose and mouth. I didn't look 52 anymore, I looked 62!!! I hated the way I looked suddenly after being considered a pretty woman all of my life.
Today I got Restalyn for the first time and it's wonderful!... more
Ok, I didn't understand what I was getting into. I had one TINY lip line that I hoped could be plumped it. Instead, I got chimp lips.
The restylane was injected into my upper lip from the INSIDE of my lip (big ouch!) Massive bruising (maybe a reaction too, who knows?) Honestly, my lip swelled to stick out past my nose - a total embarassment for about a week, there was... more
I am a wimp. I am not sure why i thought that getting an injection was not going to hurt. It did. I guess it is not real different than when you get a vaccine and they are pumping stuff into your body.
I was kind of expecting the prick of the needle, but then thought that it would be over. I found it uncomfortable.
Would I do it again? Yes, I would. The next time, I will be prepared for... more
