Evolence is Not Worth the Hype

I have used Restalyne for my laugh lines for a couple of years with excellent results. I never had brusing nor was it painful and it lasted a long time between injects. I heard about Evolence and that it lasts for a year, so my Dermo had me to try it out. What a mistake.

Although I had numbing cream on my face for 45 mins. it was SO PAINFUL and I did bruise AND after 2 weeks, I had to go back in to pay for another vial as the 1st vial did not fill the laugh line. AGAIN I went through a lot of pain and I then had some lumps that I had to massage near my nose. I thought the 2nd vial did the trick, but it is 2 months after treatment and my laugh lines are back.

What a waste of time, money and pain. I should have stayed with Restalyne as I never encountered this and I only need one vial, which I would use 2 times a year. I am wondering who at the FDA bought into the 1 year longevity as I fail to see where this is the case at all. I think it is false advertising.

My experience was eerily similar to yours. I chose Evolence because of the so-called longevity of the product. I figured why not get more bang for my buck. Well, I am 2 weeks out and my laugh lines are still there. I didn't tell anyone I was getting this done, but not a single person has noticed any difference in my appearance, not even my own mother. My doctor offers a free "touch-up" exactly one month post injection to his patients. There is definitely room for improvement as I am disappointed in the results. And the pain, oh my goodness. He told me I would feel a slight sensation because I was given a nerve block. Slight sensation my butt. It literally felt like bees were stinging my face. It was horrible. And now I have to go thru it all over again in a few weeks. I truly do not feel that my disappointing results are the fault of the doctor, it was the product. Next time I will definitely try Restylane.
