Another day, another filler

I am only 30 and have very mild nasal labial folds, and I do stress mild. I had a vial of Restylane injected in them and while I can feel the product, I don't see any difference whatsoever.

Should I try another product for more visible results? Perhaps something thicker?

Any recomendations?

it could be the injector - if the folds are very mild then you need very superficial injection, and that takes some skill.
i prefer juvederm to restylane, but restylane can give you good results as well.
i would have someone really experienced take a look at you.
perhaps they can do a touch up for not too much money.
hope that helps
