Dr. Levin thoroughly explained how she would perform the procedure; what to expect during the healing process and when I could expect to see the results. She had her wonderful assistant apply a light numbing cream to the area 20 minutes prior to the procedure. Dr. Levin proceeded to inject restylane into the tear trough and along the vermilion border of my lips.
The procedure was easy and painless. She used a cannula to minimize the bruising and swelling, pausing throughout in order to evaluate the look. Dr. Levin was meticulous and worked carefully until she achieved a symmetrical, optimal outcome.
