Restylane Treatment to the Eyes and Cheeks
Background: This 39 year old San Francisco woman works as a make-up artist. She is a proud mother and spends equal amounts of... time working and volunteering at her son's school. As she nears 40, she noticed more and more dark circles under her eyes. Working with cosmetologists and aestheticians, she was in tuned to the specifics of her face. She noticed that her cheeks had begun to lose volume, causing a diagonal fold extending from the tear trough area under her eyes to her cheek. She consulted with me about non-surgical options for rejuvenating the tear trough area under her eyes. My Assessment: This woman is obviously very attractive and with a background in cosmetics and working with aestheticians on a regular basis, her assessment of her face was exactly correct. As early as their mid 20’s, many people start to lose volume in their cheeks and under eyes; this can make the face look gaunt and older. I discussed the option of placing Restylane Dermafiller under her eyes and in her cheeks. Treatment: I placed 2 syringes of Restylane under the eyes and in the cheeks. The treatments were done over two visits, each taking about 15 minutes. 1 Month Follow-Up: She has literally lost ten years off her appearance in ten minutes! We were pleased with her results. She states, "Dr. Mabrie is the best. For the past year, I used to look into the mirror and create a similar effect by pushing up on my cheeks. Now, after having done Restylane, I look natural and no more pushing; this is exactly the effect I had hoped for."
