you are going to love artefill! I had to do it because restylane and other filler did not last long at all, some as little as 1 month, it was a waste of $$$. It is expensive and if you nasal lines are deep you may need 3 or 4 syringes but at least you dont have to keep going back! You are done.I had no bruising either I worked the same day. I had a great plastic surgeon who only charged 995 for the lst syringe and 950 for subsequent syringes.He may want to just do 1 syringe and then have you come back in a couple weeks and put more in...thats what he did for me.

When I had restalyne in the past it was one syringe so I'm hoping that's all I'll need of the artefill but whatever it takes - I'm in Laughing
I live in a more rural area and most cosmetic procedure prices have been less than what my friends pay in urban areas. The plastic surgeon doing the procedure has been at it for over a year. Thanks to LucyLuc's suggestions I checked this out carefully and I saw two of his staff's Artefill results.

Thanks for the encouraging words.

After lots of experiments, lotions, potions and what have you's, Getting back to some basics is what works for me.

A.M

cleanse; alternate between alpha hydrox face wash and Cetaphil
microfiber cloth + my trusty baby brush for exfoliation
Derma Wand (about 3 mornings a week)
Vit C Serum
anti-oxidant eye and face cream
eyelash potion
sunscreen

Early Evening (7 ish)

cleanse
steam (I try for 2 or 3 times a week)
slather on some goop
LightStim (2 or 3 times a week)

Late Evening (11 ish)
cleanse + exfoliate (microfiber + baby brush)
Derma Wand (a couple of times a week)
thoroughly dry my skin
apply Alpha Hydroxy Souffle

Before beddy-bye (about 4 ish)

a few good splashes of cold water
eyelash potion

I also do an aspirin-milk+honey mask once or twice a week.

My skin care routine varies: But here is the basic: (or not so basic as the case may be Rolling Eyes )

A.M. Wash with clarisonic (using IFP cleanser because it's what I have but I prefer Diana Yvonne Rose Hip - highly recommend).
let face dry - then put on Jan Marini - booster (6-wk program coming to a close).
Wait about 10 minutes and put on a C serum - either Cellbone C23 or glycolic C. If my face is a little dry (usually not - I am oily) I will put on a little emu oil - nice stuff that was recommended here on EDS. Not dremu but very similar.

Eye cream - use Cellbone collagen eye serum (?), PSF cranberry eye lift gel and follow with whatever eye cream I'm using up at the time. Would like to try Karin Herzog but I'm backlogged right now Laughing

I also after the shower will use Exfol Cream or LacSal (from NCN) on my chest - follow up with C serum and a moisturizer.

Sunscreen - makeup

Sometimes I will use a lactic acid or mandelic acid on my face or NCN Pumpkin Mask - absolute favorite just to get things glowing and gowing.

P.M.
I am now using Karin Herzog professional cleanser. It is marvelous. I would never have thought it okay for oily skin but it IS. It takes very little and your skin feels marvelous.
Follow with The J.M. Booster and then Super CP from Loren Pickart.
After my Booster series is done (very very soon) I will be incorporating the Karin Herzog VK2 - oxygenating series and the Essential Mask. I also bought a CALM from Osmosis as it is supposed to be excellent for firming. I will be using this around my eyes. And experimenting to compare with my beloved PSF cranberry el.
Copper peptide on chest area.

Eye cream at night.

C serum and CP's are my staples. I also have a remergent dna repair that I will fill in with when I finish the Booster. I'm not yet sure how this will happen. I'll try the Karin HErzog products alone for a while to see the results before incorporating C's and CP back in.

I also have a dpl unit which I try to use several times a week and a Nuface - try to use daily - sometimes 2X daily.

Whew - I'm done

Just teasing ya Kassy,
actually I am a little envious of night owls..they seem to get more done..My sister in law and a good friend of mine do their housework at night..no one to bother them!
Someone said I was like a chicken, up and down with the sun. LOL

I tried numerous MMU brands and finally settle on Jane Iredale's PurePressed MMU. I've been using it for well over a year now and am very happy with it.
