I have used Restalyne for my laugh lines for a couple of years with excellent results. I never had brusing nor was it painful and it lasted a long time between injects. I heard about Evolence and that it lasts for a year, so my Dermo had me to try it out. What a mistake.
Although I had numbing cream on my face for 45 mins. it was SO PAINFUL and I did bruise AND after 2 weeks, I had to go back in to pay for another vial as the 1st vial did not fill the laugh line. AGAIN I went through a lot of pain and I then had some lumps that I had to massage near my nose. I thought the 2nd vial did the trick, but it is 2 months after treatment and my laugh lines are back.
What a waste of time, money and pain. I should have stayed with Restalyne as I never encountered this and I only need one vial, which I would use 2 times a year. I am wondering who at the FDA bought into the 1 year longevity as I fail to see where this is the case at all. I think it is false advertising.
