I wish I didn't get restylane. It ruined my face! I was never warned about the side-effects and never knew that these lumps or bluish tint can take years to completely go away... or never! I'm so scared that this will be permanent! And obviously, these results occur because it wasn't injected properly which makes me really angry. i really want to sue.
I got botox for my forehead and restylane under my eyes to try and lessen the hollowness and the appearance of dark circles. My forehead came out amazing. He did it so it looked so natural and it didn’t cause any swelling or bruising. Restylane for my under eyes, on the other hand, is a different story. During the injection, I did swell up and bruise quite a bit. But, I was expecting that, so I was ok. However, when the puffiness of certain areas under my eyes and bruise along the injected site remain even after 2 weeks, I knew something was wrong. My hollow under eye was puffy in certain little areas and other areas were completely still hollow. It gave a lumpy appearance and what I thought was remnant of bruise still remained. I quickly discovered that the bluish tint under my eyes is a result of superficial injection. I’m really so upset because it ruined my face! I called the office of Dr. Wallach and told the receptionist what was happening and I was told to come in so the doctor can evaluate me and if needed, they can inject the hyaluronidase to correct this. And then she told me that I wouldn’t need to pay to see the doctor, but I would have to pay for the hyaluronidase. This REALLY upset me because I paid for a botched up job and now I’m suffering due to this and expected to pay to have it corrected?
Anyway, I went to him because he was really highly rated and considered a TOP/Expert doctor. Everytime I look at my face, I’m furious! I don’t look like myself. I have these lumps underneath my eyes and constant blue tint. The whole reason I wanted the fillers is to remove the appearance of the dark circles under my eyes. Now it looks worse! I’ve been reading on line that although the lumps will dissolve over time, the bluish tint may be permanent! I’m so angry and frustrated! I really hope this isn’t the case. I will NEVER do this again! And I suggest you really research the doctors and procedure before you decide. Restylane should have a warning about the possibility of bluish tint and that it can possibly be forever! I really want to sue.
