Okay guys, I decided to try out a filler I've never tried before. 2022 is quickly approaching so I figured why not try out something new and fresh for the New Year. I've been researching more about fillers and what would add some subtle contour and volume to my face. I decided to try out Cheek and Chin filler after discussing it with Rachel at HerMD. Rachel suggested I try Restylane Contour.
As we age and lose volume in the midface, we also lose definition in the cheeks. Restylane Contour is the only cheek filler with XpresHAn Technology™ that restores your natural contour, frees dynamic expression, and refreshes your look. Balancing the science and art of aesthetics, this unique injectable hyaluronic acid gel creates natural-looking, subtly rejuvenated cheeks that are reminiscent of your younger self, but true to what makes you beautiful today.
Every face is different so make sure you consult with an expert, like Rachel over at HerMD. I also decided to try Restylane in my chin ro help define my jawline and hide some stubborn chin fat. I was very pleased with my before and after results!
If you're looking for a natural, subtle definition for your cheeks or chin, I highly recommend you try this. There was relatively no downtown. I was just a little sore afterwards but by the next day I was fine. Results are immediately but improve after several weeks. It did not hurt at all either. Rachel but some numbing cream on the treated areas and I felt just a quick pinch.
So, is this something you would try? Make sure you schedule a consultation at HerMD to see if this is for you!

Well, honey I have the magic key. I decided to try out QWO offered at HerMD
Now, I know what you’re thinking? What is this magic you speak of? QWO is the first and only FDA approved injectable cellulite treatment. It is an injectable (non-surgical) treatment for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. HerMD is an exclusive provider in Cincinnati and only provider in Kentucky to offer QWO.
I decided to try this because during the summer you can not stop me from wearing a swimsuit. Cellulite never really bothered me but I know it affects a lot of women’s confidence. If you know me, you know I am for anything that helps boost someone's confidence level. Also, being a beauty “guru” I felt it was my duty to try out this non-surgical treatment for my audience. Cellulite, up until now - there was nothing
Here are some FAQs
How many QWO treatments will I need?
I met with my girl Rachel and she determined if QWO was right for me. She recommended a treatment plan, including how many treatments I would need. She also was very upfront and clear about the side effects which are bruising. I would be treated over 3 visits with 21 days apart. So this is a great time to try QWO so you will be ready to show off your swimsuit in the Summer.
What results can I expect after receiving the QWO treatment?
Visible results may be achieved in 10 weeks. In clinical studies, women received 3 treatments of QWO, 21 days apart.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effect is injection site bruising. Most bruising lessened after each treatment and resolved in less than 21 days. I’ve gone through 2 rounds so far, the first round bruising was the worst but not unbearable. After the treatment I felt as if I did 1 million squats, by the next day the soreness had worn off. After my second treatment the bruising was not as bad, I still got the soreness however but it quickly wore off.
So, is QWO something you’re curious about trying? Make sure you contact my friends at HerMD for a consultation here. I can’t wait to share my final results and thoughts!
