I was very excited when Dr. Ellen had time to see me. She did the injections herself - not a nurse! Also, I volunteered to have one of her staff watch. I was *very* nervous as this area under the eye is NOT an easy area, and I knew I wanted someone who knew what they were doing. The under eye/tear trough area needs to be very DEEP, so that it doesn't just lump under the skin.
I cannot say this enough - these results were based on the person administering. I would ****NEVER**** consider having this done by a nurse. The needle goes very deep next to the bone, and I want an expert in surgeries, anatomy, etc.
0 Day (day of) - 5/24 - I was fine for the first couple hours. Then the swelling started. I iced constantly, but still got very swollen.
1 Day Post - 5/25 - Bruising!
2 Days Post - 5/26 - SWELLING - upper lids are balloons.
3 Days Post - 5/27 - Swelling gone, bruised like I got punched.
Bruising went away at about 7 days post.
The 2nd day, I looked like I got beat up! At a week, I looked great.
