The procedure doesn't take very long and is not painful at all. I ended up getting 6 syringes. We used a little over 3 of them the first appointment. Half of it under my eyes in in tear troughs and the other half in my cheeks. You use some ice packs after to help with swelling. I did get a little puffy and swollen the next day or two. Nothing too bad at all and I think most of that had to do with me having too much salt in my diet. I had no bruising at all. I believe I had very little swelling and bruising due to how experienced Dr. Stevens is. He is a talented patient doctor with a very good eye, gentle hands and a wonderful bedside manner! About 8 weeks later I went back again and we used the other 2.5 syringes to touch up a little more under my eyes, finish up my cheeks and then he added a little bit to the corners of my mouth and the nasal folds. All in all those 6 syringes accomplished a lot.
I have not had any issues or problems. I have seen people write in about lumps and bulges, poor reactions and such. I have had none of that and it's been almost a year now.
My face is great how it is now. I've considered getting some more and in the next year or so I most likely will. At that point I will probably do my temple area a little bit and maybe a few little bits here and there on the rest of my face. It's so nice that it lasts so long. Definely worth the money!
