This is my first experience with fillers. I had some "glamour shots" done recently, which came out very well! But in the casual poses/light check shots I could see a crumpled and hollow area next to my mouth, to the side and under the corners of my lips! My mom has an awfully weak chin, and is very wrinkled, so why I thought I would escape that fate, I don't know!
So as soon as I could I went to see Dr Pan at Esana Med Spa in New Haven. She did my tummy tuck two years ago and I've been seeing her for Botox since then. She also did my Ultherapy and her staff nurse (Stephanie) did IPL on me too.
So I'm a regular customer I guess!
Dr Pan went over the differences between the fillers she uses and we decided on Restylane because she said it is the best and longest lasting filler for the lower face. She used one vial. It only took a few minutes and she massaged each area smooth with her fingers right after injecting the gel.
That was six hours ago and I have only felt a few twinges of pain; once when I but into a granola bar, and the other when I laughed out loud. So I guess I'll keep my face still for a bit!
I'm hoping to see smoother skin around my mouth and a plumping up of that crumpled area. I'll attach the photo in which I saw the wrinkles and a photo from today, when I'm bruised up.
More pix to come!
Oh boy. It's been about a month and the fillers...

I was a teensy bit hesitant about the look of my skin after the second dose - I seemed lumpy. But I was advised to massage the area while the gel was still active, and now I'm smooth and natural!
My Doctor: Deborah Pan, MD
Dr Pan is now my official go-to for all anti-aging and serious skin care needs! It is easy to stay with a Med Spa that treats you well, does great work and is conveniently located too. I've never had a bad experience here and I've been coming to this Surgical group/Med Spa for 2 years. Dr Pan has done a tummy tuck, Botox, Ultherapy and now Restylane on me, and the results are worth every cent.
