i had restalyne for frown lines correction. i had botox several months back but the wrinkles were too long standing to flatten the frown area. my doc told me we can use a filler and then i can get botox in a few weeks if i like the correction. the botox will make the filler last a lot longer she said. she used the restylane with lidocaine, so it wasn't painful at all though i could feel an occasional needle prick.
i've had these frown line wrinkles for 15 years-since around 35, and they have always made me look older and 'stressed' and angry so i was very pleased to see them go away after the injections.
the treatment was a week ago. when i touch the area, i can feel the threads where the product was laid in. it's not as 'natural' feeling as i'd like, but the visual effect is fine. i thought it would be a more uniform plumping, but apparently the idea is to lay in the globs and that will elevate the skin. so, i am debating if i want to do the nasolabial lines too, because the tissue there is relly soft.
a lot of docs caution about sing dermal fillers between the eyes. it takes a very skilled person. too much material, or if a blood vessel's circulation gets messed up, can lead to some nasty tissue necrosis.
i'm very happy i did this. it's something i debated doing for 2 years, and once i had it done it was like, wow, this is a real improvement. as is said, little improvements-especially about the face-can make a really big difference in how you look.
