metabolizing Restylane, or not enough product?

I had Restylane injected 2 weeks ago for marionette lines.  It didn't seem to work, maybe the lines are a little less noticeable, but they are still there.  My derm used 1 cc, although he didn't use all of it on the marionette lines.  He hit a few more places as well, to use the entire syringe.  (I really only cared about the marionette lines though).  He also told me that some people metabolize Restylane very quickly (like 2 or 3 months).  2 weeks seems very fast, if that's what happened.  Or maybe he just didn't use enough product?  I see him in 3 days, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience.

Did you end up getting more Restylane added at your follow-up appointment? It sounds like it might have been swelling that made the initial change according to some of the opinions shared in this Q&A:
