Unhappy - Doctor Pushed Evolence over Juvederm

Pros - Saw immediate results. Really liked the...

Pros - Saw immediate results. Really liked the results for a full 24 hours - I now know it was due to swelling.

Cons - All the fillers are priced the same with my doctor whom I trust. Now reading that massaging should be done immediately after injecting - well, didn't happen with me. I now have lumps - not too noticeable, but they are for whatever reason white, more noticeable with makeup.

I'm glad I'm not in a choir, with vocals I would like I had a worm in my face.

Major con - I didn't have marienette lines prior to Evolence - now, due to the lumps at both sides of my mouth opening - I sure have them now. When I'm in certain light, most light that may cast a shadow, one would never guess I've had any kind of filler.

I feel there is a major doctor incentive out there right now, Evolence, my doctor REALLY pushed (I wanted Juvaderm) - looking at the results - I question if he even knew what he was doing. I had a syringe that after application - there was actually some product left - my face looking at it now could have used it - goodness me. I paid for it - hello!!! My $50 incentive - shame on me. Lumps for $50 - cool.

How do you question your doctor about possible techniques not used when giving Evolence. I have lumps, doesn't really look like I've had a filler (except for my new marienette lines due to lumps) - I didn't have any kind of massage with injection, told not to touch my face for 6 hours. There was actually substance left in the syringe (that I paid for) that my lines could have definitely used. How do I approach this topic?

Edit:  Do not waste your money, in three days it will be one month since injected.  The evolence is gone - still have a touch of "worm" look - something my dentist noticed, she thought I had hives - and hey, I went with the allergic reaction!  Yep, those darn hives!!  So much for 6 months to a year!!!  And yes, my doctor is board certified.  Well, my old doctor I should say. 

I seriously do NOT recommend - I would never spend $600 for a few days of good and then nothing.  And the good was from the swelling.   Such a waste of money it makes my stomache turn. 

I've found a new PS, and he does not use Evolence - he said he is happy with the filler that has given his clients great results time and time again.  I wish I would have never been pushed to do Evolence.   Do not bother with this product.  The $50 rebate will never make up for the other $550.

Nice guy, but I didn't like being pushed toward a product that didn't give results. I wanted Juvaderm, why he wanted Evolence - beyond me.
