Restylane: Sitcom-worthy DISASTER!

Ok, I didn't understand what I was getting into.  I had one TINY lip line that I hoped could be plumped it.  Instead, I got chimp lips.

The restylane was injected into my upper lip from the INSIDE of my lip (big ouch!)  Massive bruising (maybe a reaction too, who knows?)  Honestly, my lip swelled to stick out past my nose - a total embarassment for about a week, there was absolutely no hiding it.

It lasted about 5 years (I guess if you like the result, this would be a plus) and I now remember my experiment with laughter!

Ok , just DO NOT GET RESTALYNE injected under eyes. It's too hARD. Get the softest filler possible. God these quacks make me sick

yup. That is why this site is helpful. Gives us an opportunity to learn about the potential complications. This high profile doctor came highly recommended. She is now retired.
