I should have read these reviews before getting injected with Restylane. Although I was prepared for the bruising and some discomfort, I didn't expect that the filler would completely disappear in the space of one week (except for some small white nodules and faint purple lines which I only can hope will go away over time). It was an expensive experiment. I had just started with the botox (forehead), which didn't last long either and was ready to try it again when the plastic surgeon suggested Restylane for nasolabial lines and the chin indentation (there was a discount special for two procedures, so I thought "why not?"). I won't do it again, and maybe not any other filler as well. Sometimes you don't know how good you look until you look worse! After all, at 50, you're supposed to have some lines and wrinkles...
My Doctor: name not provided
Although it didn't work for me, the doctor seems to have acted in good faith and won't perform procedures that he knows are not good medicine.
