Since I'last posted this, I thought I'd let give an update - It's been 5 days, and things have settled in more...It does seem I can tell one side has more "plump" to it than the other (the side he spent more time and did more injections). The other side does have a slight depression, but from what I've been reading, this filler can often be massaged and smoothed out somewhat. Either way, I think it's far better than the huge indentations I had before that made me look sooo tired!

It's been about five months since my procedure, and wanted to update: I love it! I have noticed some subtle loss of volume, but nothing substantial. I could do a slight touch up in the area, but could also wait a bit longer...Either way, it makes a world of difference done properly, by someone EXPERIENCED with fillers in the tear trough area. I also wonder if there is another "softer" product that is used in this thin area that is less likely to give the initial bumps that Restalyne gave me. These bumps weren't there initially, and I noticed them about a week after the procedure, and they were VERY subtle. Sort of reminded me of irritation I got from using eye creams that I was allergic to. Then, these areas were soft and gone in another week or so. Has looked great!

Love the filler in the tear troughs, and think it's time to visit the Dr once again. It didn't last as long as I'd hoped, but I know everyone metabolizes these products differently. All in all, I was more than happy with the result, and it's lasted about 7 months!
Ok - it's been over two years...about a year and a half ago, I did get a light touch-up, which has lasted wonderfully. I'm sort of uneven a bit, just because it's been a while - hardly noticible, but it is just a reminder the "end is near", so to speak... The doctor who perfomed this tricky procedure, retired this year, and I'm sort of in a panic! I don't trust just anyone with anything involving my eyes, so just have been putting off the research. Anyone in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area know of a doctor (Board Certified), who has done this alot?
