When I first had the procedure (2007), I had 8 threads; four per side. As a woman of color, my skin was not wrinkled, but I was getting those deep lines from nose to mouth and a bit of sagging. The pain and the swelling was horrendous for about two weeks; that's when I woke up to find one side of my face looking like a stroke had hit it. The threads had broken. My doctor agreed and replaced 2 threads per side.
Today I look almost the same as I did when I started; the only differences are the new dimples (not pretty!), the "seam" lines that sometimes poke out, and...I'm still paying for it. Can anyone help me to recoup at least the money I lost? Fortunately, my self-esteem has gracefully recovered, and I am ready to join in any class-action out there.
