Break Outs After Restylane- But LOVE the Results. - Beverly Hills, CA

I like results of restylane, but I agree with one...

I like results of restylane, but I agree with one of the reviewers on here. Every time I get injected, I break out, almost immediately. The next day, its evident that is caused by restylane.

Sorry Drs, you are not chemists, and the pharma companies have yet to learn all there is to know about certain drugs, etc.. I bet this will be one of the side affects eventually added to the list.

The breakouts usually last for awhile. I usually go on the Obagi skincare system with Retin-A (perfect because it addresses the acne and it's anti-aging), and it helps and clears my skin. Takes a good month or so to see results though, and you have to endure the peeling stage a bit. However, I also get micro which helps eliminate that. So I recommend Obagi if your skin can handle it- it's incredible, and microdermabrasion. I know, sounds like a lot, but it works and not only clears your skin, but makes your skin look radiant! So, I am back on Obagi now.

As for downtime, there is none with restylane and you see the results immediately for the most part! Very little pain except the prick of the needle. It's worth it.

Good luck. :-)

I had the same issue! I'm 45 and I have acne all over my face from Restylane! It's been 3 weeks and I have no idea when is it going to get better...I'm so dissapointed...
But the forehead looks good!
I wonder what's the alternative to Restylane?

Hi gratitude2009,

That's not cool to break out every time you have it. You are probably right they will probably add it to the side effects. How long do the breakouts last? I'm going to assume not all that long based on you continuing to get Restylane. Do you have any pain or downtime after your procedures? Please keep us updated. 

Thanks so much for the review,
