  1. Hi All Over two years ago I had cheek enhancement with Juvaderm Voluma at the cost of about $1400, 1 ml on each side. I was very happy with the results and I think I got about 18 months out of it. I am now ready to do it again. I have recently being going to Australian Skin Clinic (the chain) for Dysport and I got my lips done with Restylane and have been happy with the results. My injector there has quoted me $899 for 1 ml on each side for Restylane Sub Q which he thinks will give more definition but maybe not last as long as the Juvaderm. My original clinic has quoted me about $1000 for Juvaderm Voluma next time I do cheeks. (Although that was months ago, I have not been in for ages). I am unsure what to do. I really do NOT want DONE LOOKING cheeks. I have since read some negative things about Restylane Sub Q. Has anyone had experience with both products for cheek enhancement?
  2. Hi Everyone On wednesday night I allowed myself to be used a 'dummy' at a Cosmetic Clinic where I had about 4ml of "Emervel" at a very reduced price. As I was being used to train the Canula method. I am very happy with my results and had 1.3ml of filler in my lips. I am 40 but have aged well, the rest was in my cheeks and temple areas. Anyway, I went to work the next day and had some swelling (lips mostly). And one bruise. This I can live with and I really don't care what people think. I am very open about this topic and I had already said to the girls that sit around me, understand I might look swollen tomorrow! Anyway, there are a few older women at my work too that also sit near me and when I say old I mean just a few years older than me. Two girls in there early 20s were at my desk asking me about the fillers and the procedure and I was explaining the procedure and the areas of my face that were showing ageing when one of the older women said "I am going to have to ask you to take this converstaion elsewhere" I laughed as I thought she was joking. But she was not. It was like being in highschool and she dragged one of the other older women into the conversation for back up. She started saying that the other two girls I was talking to "were already beautiful and do not need it". I said "I never said they needed anything, I was only answering questions". I am not sure if anyone else has experienced this but I found it VERY rude. I mean if I came into work with a completely different haircut and colour would you be so rude as to comment out loud and ***** to other people about it? No, you would not. I have found the subject of fillers and botox really divides women. And the women who decide not to use it are very vicious to those that do. As if me using these products makes me a bad person or someone not to trust etc. I personally don't see it as anything different to the hair dying, plucking, tanning, lasering, false eyelashes, make up manicures etc etc etc that we all do at some time. She was very luck I did not attack her. I chose to ignore her even when I heard her ***** about me to another woman. I feel I am doing the right thing by owning up to it, rather than acting like its all natural.
  3. Hi all. Booked into getting my lips filled with restylane. Costing $350. I want it because i am going to europe for a month, so im not too concerned if it only lasts 3 to 4 months (what ive been told) Has anyone used it in lips? If so, how did you go?
  4. Hi, I'm in my mid 20s and want to start looking after my skin a little better. I have an uneven skin-tone, rosacea, dark freckles and fine lines but the main thing I want to work on is the dark circles under my eyes that I've had since I was a child. Where should I start? Should I see a dermatologist? Or go to a skin clinic like Clear Skin Clinics? Or maybe straight to a Plastic Surgeon to look into restylane. I eat healthy, low salt diet, wear an SPF moisturiser every day, don't smoke, drink my weight in water, pretty much all of the basic things you should do already. Just looking to up my skin game. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Hello, I'm looking for some advice from a doctor. Do you know if it's safe for people with weak facial muscles to have Restylane lip enhancement? (I have a previous history of GBS resulting in weaker than usual face muscles, but not acute msucle weakness). It's tricky to close my lips for long period of time but this slowly improves every year. I have a symmetrical smile, but am very self-cosncious about my thin upper lip and have wanted to do this for ages. I know no research will have been conducted into this since its so rare, but in theory, is Restylane in the lips a risk if the muscles are weak...? My fear is of them puckering up or changing their position to much due to the demylination combined with Restylane, but perhaps this is unfounded. Thanks very much!!!
  6. Hi Everyone, I'm really new to this so I apologise if this is a really dumb question. But what is the difference between Botox and Restylane? What do you prefer? or are they the same thing? Any recommendations for anywhere in Brisbane that does anti wrinkle? Thanks Heaps!
