Bumpy Restylane in smile lines settles to minimal improvement - expected of the product or issue with doctor's skill? (photo)

Disappointed. Is it the filler or the technique?
Sorry for your concerns. Your description of the changes following Restylane (one of many hyaluronic acid gel fillers) injection is spot on. Thanks for sharing your photos. To my eye, you have a very good result.
Your photos note a nice improvement. I can only fault the lack of volume, ie only 1 cc of filler is not enough for a very large area to fill.
I would recommend you return to your injector and consider more filler to achieve the volume and fold enhancement you seek.
All the best!

It is difficult to assess the problem from the photo. It is possible that you need more product or something thicker like Juvederm. Please consult a board certified cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Green
