I had Restylane injected in my tear troughs for wrinkles and tired eyes. He was nice enough during the consultation but immediately after the procedure he wanted nothing to do with me. He had handing me some after care instructions earlier but after he injects me, he just runs out. No asking if I had questions. No asking if I liked it. He told me to massage the area, ice it and left. He didn't even make a follow up appointment.
I asked the nurse if I could see it and she handed me a mirror. I could see that he overfilled one eye but I was told it was swelling. A week later after swelling and bruising is gone I can see how uneven the results were. The product pushed my cheeks down when I smiled so I had chipmunk cheeks. My smile is also uneven, obe side is higher. My smile used to be one of my best assets. I massaged the area as me showed me but it just made the results worse. One of my eyes is bigger than the other and sitting higher on my face. I look disfigured.
I recently noticed when I blink one of my eyes stays closed longer. Its like a slow blink while the other one is normal. I've missed a week of work after spending $630 to look awful. I model and I'm afraid to lose my contract. The under eye bags are gone but I'd do anything to have them back.
Update: after two weeks some of it has resolved....
