I went in for Juvederm which I have had before and was very happy with. The doctor talked me into Raddiese because it lasts longer and is better for the lower half of the face. He injected in my chin area to compensate for the starting of jowls and I was not expecting what I got. Firs he overfilled the left side and left me with a huge lump that would not go away. If felt like a round ball had... more
Radiesse seemed like a great option for me to restore lost facial volume in my submalar regions (both sides) where the fat had worn away beneath long-time cheek impacts (terino combined Mediums which I had put in 1998). As one accustomed to numerous procedures over the years with no ill effects (restylane, alloderm grafts, fat grafts, articoll injections in lips, botox, soft form lip implants,... more
I have been using Juvederm and Perlane for various areas for the past few years. I heard the Radiesse lasts much longer (supposedly a year?) bc it is a different kind of filler so I am wanting to try in in a few spots - nasolabial area, upper cheek bones, and possibly in an area of my chin that is asymmetrical due to an old injury from blunt force trauma. The tip of my nose would be great too... more
I just had Radiesse injected to the upper cheeck bone area. I now have a darkened /blueish discolaration in both the eye areas that extends from the inner corner of the eye and leads down to the injection point. I want to know if this is going to be permanent? It seems to has gotten worse over the last 24 hours. Has any one had this happen? more
Just turned 30 and am starting to see signs of drooping and aging. I haven't tried any fillers or botox so I was a little scared. It helps to do your research, I went to a variety of different places for consults to see which one I liked best. I'm glad I did my research.
I started with 1 syringe on my nasal fold, cheeks, and chin. Loved the results right away, although subtle. Went... more
I had Radiesse for the hollows around my temples. The medi spa has a very friendly and comfortable atmosphere and a medical doctor does all the injections. I had received botox injections before, but it was the first time for receiving Radiesses injections. The doctor explained the procedure in detail. That was a great relief because I was concerned about injections so close to my eyes and the... more
I went in just to have my marionette lines around my mouth filled. The doctor I was seeing brought up the idea that I had a sunken area under my eyes that would look much better filled in. I had never even noticed it before.
I stopped her after she started injecting under my eye, because I said I only bought 2 syringes and wanted to address what I came in for. So she only did the one eye... more
My experience was excellent with minimal bruising. I had it in my cheeks, & marionette lines. It was a very natural result, giving me a youthful apperance! I am told it stimulates your body to grow collagen, which goes away as you age. I just used a little ice after the treatment and arnica montana (sinecch). Make sure you have a good doctor or nurse with experience do any injection. So far... more
