i used restylane for many years to fill big facial lines i developed on my face. while each injection HURT but more disappointing was that restylane never quite smoothed the skin.
i went to a new dermatologist who thought scupltra would do the trick. i ended up going with the recommendation. the injection really wasn't bad. half the pain of restylane. and it did better job of filling the lines. in fact, i cant see them any longer. best yet i was told it lasts more than a year which i appreciate from a time and money savings point.
i recommend you find a sculptra specialist. it looked pretty tricky to inject and was much much deeper into my skin. scary stuff with someone who's a rookie.
