I have had one treatment so far, and I am pleased with the results. The cost is $350 per treatment (two injections per treatment, one on each side of the face). I am not sure how much he is using, but I think it is 1/2 of one vial per cheek.
I am 30 years old, and I actually had the injections placed right beneath my eyes above the highest part of my cheekbones. My cheekbones are naturally high, and were beginning to appear angular. The doctor discussed the procedure thoroughly with me, and determined that since I am younger, there was no need to "attack" my whole face with filler.
I experienced almost no pain. It was seriously no worse than a minor scratch. The sensation afterward was kind of annoying, because of the numbing agent in the filler.
I will return in three weeks for the second treatment. The only thing I am concerned about is that one side seems to have "taken" better than the other. When I was injected, my left cheek let one small spot of blood, which kind of freaked me out. Well, a week later, and the side that bled seems to have "plumped" almost imperceptibly more than the other (it's my face, so even though others wouldn't notice, I do). I think that may be due to healing and residual swelling from the injection, but I don't know.
I have no lumps, but I have been massaging often. The first two days I may have even overmassaged, as I was determined to not get lumps or nodules. The last two days I have noticed that when I begin to massage after resting, there is sort of a "fibrous" feel to the underlying tissue, but that it dissappears as I massage the area. I do not think that I will get bumps or lumps, but I also think that caring for the treatment properly is key.
I will update this entry as I progress with the treatment.
