I hope this email finds you well.

I hope you don't mind me contacting you but I am producing a documentary for National Geographic about fake pharmaceutical products and I came across your post here on the messageboard. We are looking to film with people who have been through expereinces like yours to give them the chance to tell their story with the intention to raise awareness about conterfeit products used on the market that could ruins people's lives. I was wondering if you would be interested in telling your story in our documentary? Is so, it would be fantastic if you could email me at minna.sedmakov@walltowall.co.uk

Thanks a lot in advance and I look forward to hearing from you - it would be good to hear how things are with you now and I hope you're feeling better.

Best regards,

I realize that I am reading this message board in the year 2015 and I hope all here are healthy and wise.
I have had one trial poke of restylane in my upper lip area. I had immediate swelling and it was extremely painful. From there, I became major nasal pressure and congestion up to my forehead, eyelids, and around my skull. I have had major sever headaches since. I sit with a block of ice ontop of my head daily. After 5 months an odd lump on my spine, pressure at base of skull, head congestion, painful sinus forehead area. Steriods are not keeping it down. I am in the process of filing complaints, comfronting those involved in the sale and distribution of this product. Researching remedies to counter the dangerous side effects of this unregulated product. I am saddened to learn that this is the same situation as the Silicone Breast Implant issue that by the way has not been settled after 25 yrs of a Global Class Action. The corporations got away with murder and continue. And now it is restylane. Same dang thing. Greed. deceptive marketing. harm. death. more greed and move to the next cosmetic product or pill. Can you get and keep an erection commericial played every other time? Anyway back to restylane. When I ask about Inflammatory reaction? silience. remedy? silence. outcomes? silience. Nothing has changed. The FDA allows it, the deceptives market it, the greedy takers take it, and the consumer/patient is dead, deformed or writes and complains to a false sense of security. I expect more in the year 2015. I expect the FDA to do their job. I expect doctors to read journals and have continued education in all states of the usa. I expect the greedy takers to profit else where such as cleaning up the garbage they sell and distribute daily. I expect more from the medical community, the pharma community, the FDA, the various cosmetic boards and memberships. Yes I do. It is about safety, good healthcare for all and taking the profits out of products that harm because of ignoring data, research and studies. If it takes a lawsuit. Do it. Money is the bone. Damage is the reason.
