Terrible Experience with Under Eye Filler! Templeton, CA

I made an appt with Dr. B in May 2012 to have restylane injected in my tear troughs. I was getting married over the summer and I wanted to look my best. I've always had minor hollows under my eyes and I decided to do some research on what temporary fillers were best for the sensitive, under eye area. The overwhelming consensus was that Restylane was the preferred filler for under eye hollows... READ MORE

It's such a difficult area! And you're right, you shouldn't have to pay for more injections; they should do them free of charge since they messed up! (or at least heavily discounted) I will definitely let you know if I find a cream... READ COMMENT

Yes, that's precisely why I had asked for restylane the first time I went in. Unfortunately it wasn't enough and they used the wrong paperwork so the second time I went in they gave me Juvederm. Idiots. READ COMMENT
