LOVE the Look, The Most Painful Experience!

I wanted fuller lips because as we age, they seem to get slimmer. Oh my gosh...I did not realize the pain that would be involved in the process - they even numbed me! I could barely touch my lips for 3-4 days and had a really hard time working the product in to your lip a suggested. The... READ MORE

Good Results but Dont Use in Combination with Botox - Stamford, CT

Restylane did a good jobe of filling in my wrinkles. One visit I had Botox injected into the furrows between by eyes, followed by Restylane. The combination of the two created a horrific reaction.

Miserable Experience - San Jose, CA

I have had Restylane injections periodically from 2004-2006 with varying results. At first I only had the NL folds and marionettes injected and it looked very good. But here is what eventually happens: I now have permanent needle marks along the NL folds where it has been injected and... READ MORE

Too BIG and Lumps

I agree DONT do it unless you really hate the way your full appearence looks. It really changes the way your entire face looks. I had it done Friday and it is now Wednesday. I had it done only in the top lip and I hope that it is still swollen, if not the Dr. put way too much in. I also have... READ MORE

I did it cause everyone else was doing it. - Hated It - California, CA

I did it cause everyone else was doing it. People should not do this! The doctor did not explain the whole proccess. I really want it removed. Realy! Don't do it unless you really have a huge cosmetic issue with your face. Don't do it! Be sure you sure you get the removal cost in writing before... READ MORE

Not Quite Sure if I Love the Results or Not

I had Restylane for my NL lines a little over a week ago. I will be 42 in a couple of months and I just wanted to have the my NL lines a little less noticable. I feel that I didn't get the results that I thought I was going to get. I will have to have a redo next week. READ MORE

Lumps and Bumps Galore

I visited a board certified plastic surgeon and left looking like a had marbles under my skin for about two to three months. I would not recommend restylane unless you have thick skin, otherwise, you end up looking like a squirrel collecting food for winter. Make sure you have thicker skin... READ MORE

I Can't Live Without my Restylane!

I have injections in my upper lip to make it fuller and poutier. It works great. Hurts like hell when they're doing it even with the numbing cream. But the effect is great. I also have a little injected at the corners of my mouth where there's a little sagging. One half cc plumps... READ MORE

Hurt a Bit, Felt Weird for a While, Now Very Good

I had a single vial injected into my NL lines which were just starting (I was 31 at the time). It did hurt and felt weird for the next couple of weeks. The pain was fine, I had no numbing injections so it was to be expected. At first, there were lumps under my skin and I really couldn't... READ MORE

I got Restylane in my nasolabial folds and marionette lines - Good Results, Good Experience - Roswell, GA

I got Restylane in my nasolabial folds and marionette lines yesterday. This was done by a Physician's Assistant at a med spa. It was a great experience. She told me everything she was doing and used a dental numbing injection. There was minimal pain. The results were immediate and... READ MORE


I am very fussy & do not like the artificial look that I often see here in los angeles. This is the second time I have had the botox & resty combo. The first time I had it done, I think I was over injected and it was lumpy in the nl folds and it hurt like crazy. This time, different derm, a... READ MORE

Restylane Gave Me the Lips of my Dreams

I had gotten Botox and Restylane at the same time last month – Botox in my forehead and Restylane in my lips with a tiny bit also in my nasal lines. I love the results of each but together they are amazing! For Restylane: I wanted most of it in my lips because this is my real problem area. I... READ MORE

Not As Happy As I Was with Botox

I got Restylane done during the same procedure in which I got Botox. I was told it would take up to 2 weeks to see the full results, so I wanted to give it a chance before leaving my review. I got this done at a dermatologist's office to soften my nasolabial folds. They smeared the numbing... READ MORE

A Few Minor Complications, but Fixable....wonderful Results, Doesn't Last As Long As Hoped.

I saw a special two-for-one deal with a Medspa, and so jumped at the chance to get 2 syringes of Restylane done. I am 34, and within the past 5 years I have been steadily getting nasolabial folds that make me feel much older than I want to. I have also, all my life, wished I had thicker lips... READ MORE
