I had 2 vials of Radiesse injected in my cheeks. It lasted 2+ years. It gave me a very nice natural lift and helped with some sagging jowl skin. I also had Juvederm around my nasolabial folds, and a few lines on top of my lips. I did not like the juvederm as much as I got a lump. But the lip lines disappeared and after 3 years have not come back. more
Dr. Michael Lafkas, Seal Beach, CA is the ONLY doctor I trust for fillers.
This guy has an eye for only perfection. He lays the filler in way where there is no
lumps or gaps.
The youthful face has more volume near the eyes, temple, and outer cheek area. Creating an
upside-down egg shape is the face of beauty.
I moved to the South and found a reputable doctor to put in Juvederm in my... more
Dr. Kevin Sadati was so amazing! He knew I wanted the filler to look natural, as though I had nothing done and mission accomplished! He was so professional during the procedure and consultation. He really is an artist and I highly recommend him to those seeking natural beauty. The staff was super friendly and made me feel good about the procedure. more
Growing up I've always felt self conscious about having a recessed chin. I did my research and found Dr Klein on real self. This was the first time that I've ever used fillers and I can say that dr Klein is good at what she does. I did bruise for a week or so but once the swelling and bruising went down my chin looked natural. Love the results! more
I've been wanting to try a filler ever since I started noticing my cheeks and nasolabial folds getting more hollow looking over the past few years. Now with my 40th birthday coming up I decided to finally try it. I was so nervous that something might go wrong, but that is part of why I chose to go with Dr. Klein - she's an expert and knowing this helped me feel more confident about it.
This was my first time using fillers and I was a little nervous about going with Radiesse since its not reversible like the others if things go bad. At first, I was worried about the results b/c I could feel the firmness of the injection in my cheeks. But the filler softened after about a week or so and now its soft, just like she told me it would. It's been about 6 weeks since the injection... more
Dr. Klein had originally introduced me to Radiesse to help improve my acne scars. My original treatment lasted close to 16 months.
I like the idea that Radiesse injection is not a harmful foreign substance, but it “safely promotes the growth of my own collegan. The calcium phosphate ions target the scar tissue and create volume to my own skin and wah-lah…acne scars disappear.
I've been a patient of Dr.Kliens for 4 yrs so picking a doctor I could trust was easy for this procedure. Always on the cutting edge, Dr. Klien is highly trained in administering filler. Now using pain ease numbing spray makes preparation for the procedure too easy! Loved that there was no dental block or topical gel to wear prior to my appt!
I was pretty nervous to receive Radiesse as... more
I have had Radiesse a few times and I love it. At 34, I have tried Juvederm and Restalyn as well. Neither product worked nearly as well for plumping as Radiesse. Please note that I did not use it under my eyes, which I have heard is not recommended. I had it put in my cheeks, which helped with the hollows under my eyes and in my chin, which helped shape my face. I would recommend Radiesse to... more
I looked in the mirror and had a bit of an identity crisis, I was looking more and more like my mother. If this product had been around when she was alive she would definitely have used it as she looked like her mother!I never said it was not worth it, I am sorry that it appears that I did. more
I hated looking in the mirror. I am just over 40 and since I was in my 20's couldn't my cheeks started to show depressions in them. I felt it aged me very much. My skin looks pretty good by my cheeks just bothered me to the point I didn't want to be in pictures. I am getting married and didn't want that anymore in my life. I decided to take a big chance and I have never done... more
I sought treatment with Radiesse because my face had become alarmingly gaunt at the age of 26.
I am incredibly pleased with my recent treatment by Dr. Klein, which included injections of 2 syringes of Radiesse into my submalar/cheek area. Prior to visiting Dr. Klein my username on Real Self was "Ghoulish Looking," due to the significant loss of facial volume that I had... more
I had Radiesse injected in this area 3 1/2 years ago and it's still mostly there! I had 2 syringes done (one on each side) & it left me overfilled. every year that passes, I keep checking it to see if it's gone down and it barely dissolves. I've spoken with my doctor about this (the one who injected me) & he said the original studies on radiesse were that it lasted 4 years.... more
Depending on your body type and genetic background (take a look at your relatives because that is the future of your face too!) this is an amazing option to look your best. I would also like to add that in my case this will not be something I can just have done once every year but rather cosmetic maintenance that may need a touch up. If you go into the Radiesse experience knowing you may need... more
Used topical arnica, cold pacs, and oral arnica. Had slight bruising immediately following the procedure with swelling diminishing to redness after a day. Although I had half a dose, it was enough to make a difference. more
