Had 3 syringes and the nurse made sure it was painless with topical cream and locals. I was told the bruising would be nothing and that most people go back to work the same day. That wasn't true for me, I had huge bruises from her "massaging" (extreme force caused the trauma) the filler into place.

The bruising and swelling went away in about 6 days and so did any results...I look exactly the same, it dissolved completely. I spent a lot of money and was told in places like the tear troughs it could last as long as 9 months and now it's gone in less than a week!

I went to the Dr for a fat transfer and under eyelid surgery and was very happy with the results, I just wish more fat took hold. I would have been better off with another fat transfer than wasting money on injectable fillers. There should be a lawsuit that makes it illegal to claim results last 6-9 months.

I went back to the Dr's office and was told some...

I went back to the Dr's office and was told some metabolisms eat up the filler faster and they are going to try Perlane. I will let you know what happens.

Friday // went in for Perlane since the Restalyne not only dissolved too quickly it was such a painful and ugly ordeal with all the bruising. Well the Perlane looked great right after, new technique, I had almost no bruising BUT it's almost gone! These fillers are junk, lot's of money, little result and only then for a few fleeting days.

My Dr was wonderful and the RN was very sweet and patient I LOVED the results of the fat transfer! Between the two I'd choose fat but some people seem to have luck with filler just not me. I tried to remove this post because I have nothing but good things to say about my doctor and will definitely go back when I am ready for another procedure and fully recommend him.
