Funny enough, the results have been better without as much bruising. The technique was totally different. My first treatment, the doc used local anaesthetic and a nokor (sp?) needle. He followed up with Juvederm but it kept oozing out so I went back to get it filled again a month later. This time with Restalyne. I did the original treatment on a Mon and couldn't go back to work until Fri because my face looked so beat up. Even then, people were asking what happened.
The second time the new doc used only a block of ice for a minute or so and then used the actual filler needle to do the work. He filled it at the same time, with Perlane. A lot less bruising and isolated to the scars only. And not painful! I went out the next day with CoverFX to cover the redness. Back to work on Wed.
I'm in Toronto and if anyone local wants more info, PM me. I'm happy to share doc details! I've had lots of consultations; some good, some awful. This doc has it all in terms of equipment (lasers, peels, etc) and loads of experience. And prices are reasonable too. He's direct but I'd rather that than empty BS promises.
