    Ive been thinking about getting Restylane or Juvederm injections the last few monthes....

    I have creases under my eyes that create a contour that makes me look sad.
    I also have expression lines that start on the side of my nose and go down to the side of eah lip. they are not horrible but combined create a very sad look on my face and my self confidence has really gone down the last year or so.

    So has anyone gotten these fillers done before? I know they are not permanant but I will do this is it means I can look in mirror and like what I see for once.

    What was your experience like? Advice?

    How much does that cost? If it doesn't last.... why do it? Is there a permanent option?

    I had a bad scar on my shoulder fixed with plastic surgery, there was some missing muscle tissue and it made a dent and a keloid inside the dent. It basically looked like a spoon scoop out of my back with a piece of chewed bubble gum inside, ugly. I got it fixed and now it looks like a very thin white line and it won't have to be redone.

    @ Daas-No each it doesnt last forever. like up to 1 year. Its just that I feel like you cant put a price tag on sefl esteem and to some it might not be anything but to me its A LOT. I never like what I see and I almost try to avoid mirrors.

    If it works then I will just continue to get it done. Their are so more options im sure, I will have to meet with a specialist soon. I mean a more extreme one is an under eye lift ( it basically just gets rid of bags by cutting extra skin off and tightening the skin.

    A friend of mine goes in for semiregular Juvederm shots and she swears by them. I tell her the truth - I can't tell the difference. Methinks the type of conditions treatable by Restylane and Jevederm are those that are nearly imperceptible to others.

    @eager muscle-Im heard they work pretty good and Ive seen some really great before and after photos. I guess it depends on the doctor doing it and their techinique and experience. I will say though regarding you friend...as long as she likes it and notices it than thats all that matters ya know. Atleast shes getting it for herself and no one else.
