I had Radiesse done by a nurse practitioner several times at a different facility with mixed results. The last time was in June and the results were less than acceptable. There was too much filler placed at the bottom portion of my cheeks rather than near the top of the cheekbone, which overall defeated the purpose of getting the lifting effect I was looking for. I mentioned that I thought... more
I am 58 years old and have lost volume in my face causing me to look older than I think I should. I went to Synergy Advanced Medical Aesthetics for advice on what to do to achieve a more youthful appearance. I ended up having, among other things, Radiesse injections in my cheeks to replace the volume and I am thrilled with the look. They applied some topical numbing cream and it really didn't... more
1.5cc of Radiesse per mid-face cheeks. I saw youtube videos of surgeons and online wesbites indicating the filler to be injected superficially and fanned at angles, thus I expected my surgeon to do such. He did the opposite and inserted the needle straight through my cheeks until the needle hit my cheek bones, I was startled as I inquired earlier to the method of how he would be injecting it.... more
I got radiesse to contour my cheeks and fill in my under eyes! I don't look tired anymore! I glow!
I did it because I was just tired of looking haggard and like I was always tired..I am not exaggerrating. That is how it looked! more
I had the injection in the naso-labial folds just 2 days ago, I am not sure of the satisfactory level at this time. However, I am experiencing a red like rash and dryness feeling to the smile lines and need to know if this is common. Please advise what I can use to relieve the rash and dry feeling.

I had radiesse injected yesterday in the cheek area, nasolabial, chin and under the chin....I look like a monster. I am severely swollen and distorted. The bruising I am not so concerned because I know that will heal. I swelled immediately after the injection so the doctor told me to take benedyrl when I got home, I did. I also take arnica caps and cream, and tylenol for discomfort.My doctor... more
Two weeks ago I had radiesse injected on the sides of the mouth/upper chin area. I continue to have pain all along the jaw line and now have two huge painful granulomas; (one is almost the size of a quarter) that have formed below the chin and another seems to be forming. Looks like the radiesse is migrating to other areas along the jaw line. However, I must admit, I do look youn more
It hurt to get injections - both the numbers and the Radiesse itself - but it was no worse than when you have to get a lot of shots at the dentist. It helped to have a concerned and empathetic doctor. I went to Dr. Amir in San Diego. Nice guy, good credentials.
No bruising. Feels swollen but not flat-out painful. A few very tiny needle dots. Looks like maybe I have a few zits... more
