Restylane is obviously among the most popular Dermal Fillers options at the moment (click this for more info on Restylane)! But are you an ideal candidate for Restylane? Does it meet your needs? Read the testimonials below and find it for yourself:
I was looking for something to lighten up my appearance but didn’t want to resort to Botox injections, as I wanted a natural formula for my sub-skin tissues. The procedure with the injections was trouble-free and I felt assured knowing that what was injected in me was just hyaluronic acid, which is a perfectly safe substance. After the operation, I could see the results almost immediately! There was however a slight irritation on my skin, I also had some tenderness, but it was all gone the following day. I am truly satisfied with Restylane! Let’s see now how long it will last.
I had Restylane 4 months ago but I am frustrated by the way my doctor treated me. I mean, I have no real complaints about the method itself but with the wrong targeting from the very beginning. The problem on my face was not about the wrinkles (although I had plenty of them too!) but the laxity it has developed. So, I wanted to primarily focus on this. My doctor, a skilled cosmetic surgeon who I trust, promised me that he would handle that and that Restylane is exceptional in taking care of situations like these. Do you want to know the end result? Sagging skin is still there while my wrinkles and lines now look better – but that was not my priority.
I had some growing lines starting from the nose and ending to the corners of my mouth. Restylane seemed like a safe and natural choice, so I went for it. I had one treatment (the initial plan was for two sessions) but I was not exactly thrilled by the outcome, so I put off the second one. The problem is that, although my face has been relatively refreshed, the finish of the operation is not flawless; the filler the doctor put under my skin is actually visible now when I smile or laugh – and that was not at all in my expectations! Obviously, I grumbled to my doctor, who just defended his actions, but I certainly don’t want to hear excuses like these. Certainly, I cannot blame Restylane for that, especially when my wrinkles have been softened so much!
In the early stages, my Restylane experience was almost ideal. The chosen area for treatment was the area around the mouth and the lips. After the operation, some itching and swelling emerged, but it soon subsided. The results were satisfying and I had no reason to worry about anything, as everything was going according to my expectations. Unfortunately, two months later, tenderness and swelling appeared, and that caught me by surprise, since I had believed that all these were just behind me. My physician concluded that it was a response of my immune system – and that was the point where I brought in my mind that the clinic doctor had warned me of a similar side effect, although he had claimed that the chances were just marginal. Anyway, maybe I was just extremely unlucky to encounter that! Luckily, my physician reassured me that there was no real danger and that I would soon get over it. Well, that was not exactly the case, as swelling and inflammation kept appearing (at intervals) for well over a year but finally, yes, he was right, to my relief! But with all this turmoil, I never got really able to enjoy the positive aspect of Restylane, which now has significantly faded 🙁 That’s a pity, really. And I don’t think I can find the courage to encounter those side effects again, so no more Restylane for me.
My initial treatment was painful – although I had made an in-depth research beforehand, which had revealed that no serious effects and no severe pain were to be expected. The area that was treated included mainly the nasolabial folds (that is the lines that are formed when someone smiles), and also the lips and the cheeks. After the treatment, I had some dark scarring which alarmed me to a great extent. Anyway, I was advised to be patient and I would soon get rewarded. Thankfully, that worked out OK, and most of the scarring healed on its own; yet, it was not completely away, which kept annoying me. So, simply, I went to another health care professional, who specializes in correcting flaws like these; the outcome was just exceptional! I received a painless procedure, and after some weeks, I was thrilled to have a younger face, lifted, toned and without scars!
