Skin Care Review: Q-Med Restylane
by Diana K., Hamburg, NY USA
Immediate diminishing of deep wrinkles
Pain from several small injections
At 41 years of age, my skin is beginning to show signs of aging. My skin was always clear and healthy but the deepening of lines makes me feel older than I am. My main concern was a furrow that developed and deepened between my brows from years of squinting (I've since had LASIK surgery with excellent results) and stress. To me, it made me look like I was always scowling and it bothered me to the point of trying to conceal it with my bangs. I asked the surgeon about having a BOTOX treatment and he recommended Restylane instead because it's effects last longer (up to 9 months as compared to 3 months with BOTOX) The treatment took about 15 minutes, which included cleansing, several small injections, and a cold pack to reduce swelling. The injections were painful as the doctor felt the site was too small for anesthetic. But the results were immediate. The Restylane filled in the deep lines.
I do feel that I would like to go back and have the lines filled more because after the initial swelling wore off, the furrow lines are still apparent, even though they are much less pronounced and not as noticable.
It has only been a few weeks since getting this done so I can not say how long the effects will actually last, but I do feel it was worth it.
I do recommend Restylane treatment for filling in of deep lines and immediate results.
