Restylane injections were not painful for the undereye area. Swelling and bruising were horrific.
Swelling under one eye has persisted well over one year. Eating salty or spicy foods increases the swelling under the one eye.
Recovery for me was well over one month of wearing sunglasses and not being able to go out in public without them.
However, if you do not experience the puffiness and swelling then it really does plump up the area injected.
One eye was done great and looks wonderful and the other is still experiencing swelling. Overall, I don't think I would do this again.
