I did restylane Sub Q 13 m ago. I have not recover yet. It seems like my body build scar tissue around this filler. I only had a half syringe in each cheek and still look horrible. Worst on the left side. I thought I had a temporary filler in me but there is a lot left. People star at me and wonder wath have happened to my face. I really hope this will resolve. Terrible product!!!!

18 m. Filler still in my face. It should be gone now, but only50%. Is this a permanent filler? Anybody else with experience with this awful filler, or have I developed a granulom?? I dont know but stilla feel awful and sad.

My skin has now developed scars on my cheeks, and I still have pain in injection site. I am Q-meds test person and a doctor say he has seen Sub-Q stayes for severel years. How will I look in the future? Will the scar get bigger? I think this filler have permanent damage my skin, health and my mind. This filler is a BIG fiasco!!!!

I want to warning every one NOT use restylane Sub Q. Mine lumps from this filler has not shrunk at all and I am sure I have developed granulom and this I will live with in the rest of my life. It will not be FDA approved because of this lumps. I dont warn you about the FDA approved restylane, I have never used it.

Sorry. I will take this in Swedish so people in my country can read.

Efter 2 år och 2 mån. Filler nästan borta. Men Sub q lades för högt under ögat.Nu försvagade muskler som resulterat i stora påsar under ögonen, samt att fillern som ligger kvar har resulterat i två stora klumpar på kindbenen.

Jag vet att personen som la dessa är duktig på läppar och allt annat men denna tunga filler kunde hon inte hantera. Kliniken gör inget för att hjälpa mig. Skyller enbart på allergisk reaktion men jag har tagit allergi tester och det syns ingenting....

Ansvarig läkare där svarar aldrig på mina mail, och behandlar mig som om jag vore knäpp.
Allt är anmält till socialstyrelsen nu.

My new update. Well after 3 years I have been diagnosed with psoriasis and was triggered by restylane. Nobody in my family back in time has this diagnosis. The most frightening of restylane is that nobody knows with absolute certainty what chemicals are in restylane more than those who produce it. And there is no real contents regarding this product. I do not want to scare anyone but this is my personal experience with restylane. If you are predisposed to psoriasis avoid this filler.

Going through the same experience as you guys in Rome, Italy where I live. Had it done Nov 2011. This product should be taken off the market. I'm under silent shock as I'm trying to lead my normal life.

Have you gone to a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to see if they can help remove or dissolve the material?

People dont believe that restylane is temporary. It is permanent like aquamid. It stays in my skin permanent with permanent problems. The protein in restylane is permanent in skin, and you get permanent problems from it. All I want is Q-med contact with me. They have blamed aquamid for permanent problems but Restylane Sub Q is permanent. Dont use it.

Q-med in Sweden. A quick answer why dont you care about people who got problems from restylane, in my case Sub Q. I thougt you was a serious company and really belived in this product, all I can feel is really hard skin and intermittent swelling. Shame on you.

Update: I dont know wath happened in my case. In the beginning I lost a LOT of weight(sp) I think I had a immun reaction to this substance. I think I am a very rare case because I had only read about few people had this reaction to restylane.

I was trying to get volume, and yes my face blow up in the beginning like I was in a car accident. Now I am left with bubbels under my skin that dont break down. In certain light it look so awful.
