Went Smooth but the Results Are Not What I Expected...

Im 28 and the dark circles under my eyes have bothered me for at least 6 years now. after a lot of research on on line i have discovered that the problem is actually the hollowness under my eyes. so iv e decided to go to a consultation with a very popular doctor in california. he said that i have just a little bit of hollowness and i would benefit from restylane under my eyes and radisse to give a little bit of volume to my cheeks. i decided to go ahead and do it i was seek of the under eye concealer ceremony every morning!!! he injected a half of syringe of restylane to each eye and a half of syringe of radisse to my cheeks. i have to admit that the procedure was painless and thank god i had absolutely no bruising . at first the results looked amazing i was really happy but after 2 days i have noticed a difference between the eyes. so i went back for a correction again painless and no bruising and once again i was happy with the results but a week after i started to notice my circles again and after a month i looked like i didn't have anything done... the doctor told me that restylane usually lasts for about a year for the under eye area i wasn't expecting a year but a month??? is that possible... maybe he didn't inject deep enough? but he looked so professional and iv e heard really good things about him so im not sure what to think also a bluish color under my eyes which wasn't bad but it just looks like i didn't have anything done... it has been 5 months since than...


actually i moved to a different state about 2 weeks after so i couldn't go back to the same doctor after the second time back than he told me that restylane works the best for the under eye area i'm getting ready to go to another consultation and if i decide to do it again i hope it'll really last this time...

That would be disappointing if to only have the Restylane last 1 month! I suppose everybody is different, but that does seem like a really short time. Did he say if maybe a different filler might give you different results?
