I think the dark circles made me look older and tired. I had the treatment to improve my looks. I have lived with raccoon eyes since I was a child. After seeing the photos on his site and reading the reviews, I decided to invest in filler. Dr. M explained everything very well and made some excellent recommendations. So, I proceeded to have Perlane injections on the both upper cheeks.
Dr. M made a dozen or so tiny injections right along the edge of the upper cheekbone. These injections stung ever so slightly. I’ve had worse pain during a facial. Afterwards, I had a little swelling and some bruising, but not so much that I couldn’t go out in public. It’s now about a month after the injections and yes, I still have dark circles (but they are very much improved). A friend told me last week that the injections have taken several years off my face.
Dr. M was patient and very thorough with his explanations. He seemed willing to take as much time as needed to make sure I was comfortable before proceeding. He also explained how fillers work, what they’re made of, possible side-effects as well as to expect some slight swelling.
I’m planning to go back in a few months for a “botox” browlift as well as another round
of Perlane injections. I’m also going to take my mother to see him for some treatments.
