Red-eyed Beauty - Iowa

After 2 and a half months my lashes are phenomenally long and lush. That part I love. But while the irritation and bloodshot eyes side effects have lessened considerably, my eyes are still irritated from the nightly use. I am trying to use a lot less; I've switched to application with a... READ MORE

Botox for Platysmal Bands (Neck Cords; Saggy Chin)

I'd heard mixed opinions on whether botox in the neck cords could tighten the chin contours. I'm glad to say that it worked for me. The effect is subtle, but I do have a sharper jaw line. I may try a touch up, to see if I can get even more definition. So I got a touch up for the platysmal... READ MORE

Restylane for Upper Cheeks and Tear Troughs

I'm very happy with the results, but I think to get effective tear trough filling, you need to fill in any lost volume in the upper cheeks, right under the tear troughs as well.

I've given up Latisse after two years of use. I liked the lashes, and got used to my red eyelids (and used to covering up the redness with makeup). But then my doctor pointed out how badly inflamed my eyelids were. I realized then... READ COMMENT

Sure, my provider is {edited} of Iowa City, IA. She careful and skilled and really takes her time with injections and asks for my feedback as she's doing it (I'm provided with a hand mirror). Edited by Sharon: We've added your... READ COMMENT

I get a few random white bumps after every Restylane injection. My theory is that this is some of the restylane working it's way out of the skin. Sometimes the bumps will not appear until a few weeks after the injections. I have found... READ COMMENT

Well, every new injectable claims it "lasts longer" than its predecessors. Since it's the same substance as Botox, I doubt it lasts longer. How long it lasts basically depends on how much you get. READ COMMENT
