44 year old female starting to see lack of fullness in face with worsening tear 'dents' and nasolabial folds giving a tired look. I didn't want to look 20, just more rested and youthful so I finally took the plunge and had a total of 1.5 syringes of Restylane injected: 0.5 in the dark tear hollow and 1.0 in my nasolabial folds (we're keeping the other half syringe to see where I might need a top up in a week once any swelling goes down). Honestly this was a lot less painful than botox injections. Together (botox and filler) I look easily 5-10 years younger with a very natural effect. I started to wear a bit more makeup a few weeks ago - so I'm telling people that it's a new foundation/ concealer/eye shadow combo which seems to be doing the trick! The doc suggested restylane to see how I liked the effect, before possibly going to radiesse. Now I've read reviews on problems with radiuses under the eyes so I'll keep the restylane for there. My only regret is that I didn't do this before!
OK, 1 week later I went in to have the last 1/2...

I've been going to the Kaya Center for well over 8 years for different treatments. I tend to metabolize Botox quite quickly so see them what I think is a little often (3-4 months). The doc didn't suggest I do the fillers which I liked - it was me who brought the subject up. He was honest in telling me that yes, they could potentially help me look more rested. Taking a lot of time to achieve the desired effect, I'm so very pleased with the result. Hope there wasn't too much swelling and this will last for months, though he did warn me that the effects do diminish a bit (re: reduced swelling).
