I was concerned about fillers, I just didn't like the idea of putting something foreign in my body,but I finally went for it, and I'm so happy I did. Radiesse made such a difference in my appearance. I feel so much more confident. I have returned to Dr. Imola to have juvederm injected around my eyes and again I'm extremely happy. Lisa, his assistant is very patient and made me feel I was in... more
I'm in my late 30's and have done four rounds of Radiesse in the last year and a half.
The results are spectacular: instant cheekbones, less pronounced marionette lines and an overall more youthful appearance. The only BIG drawback is that it only lasts three months! So I plunk down $1500 every 4 months...yikes. more
I am no stranger to fillers and other wonders of modern technology, I am not allergic to anything, and I have ridiculously tough skin. That said, I am astonished--and horrified--at how Radiesse has disfigured my face.Three months ago, I had one syringe of Radiesse injected into my nasolabials and cheeks. I've had the same amount of other fillers in exactly the same spots, with good, if... more
I got the Radiesse injection yesterday to help out with the wrinkles of my smile lines. I now have to puffy pouches on both sides of my lips (a little above the lips).The doctor said there will be swelling the first day. I'm on the second day and it still looks like this. Is this really swelling? Or is this the Radiesse and it was injected wrong and it all is in that area instead of spread out... more
Although I experienced some pretty significant bruising, I love my new cheeks. The nurse injectionist was so talented and soft-handed, the difference is amazing. It took years off my face and softened the lines around my nose and mouth. I don't need filler there now since the Radiesse lifted my cheeks so nicely. Be sure to take bruising precautions before and after your injections, and make... more
I read all the negative reviews on this site about this product for months! My practitioner kept pushing Radiesse, but I kept telling her "No Way, Jose"! I have read too much neg p.r. and was freaked out! Nothing is worse than expecting great results and walking out broke and disappointed!
She was having a special and I finally said "OK, lets go for it." My under eyes were... more
*This is normally $600 per syringe, but my provider was having a special. Man, did this Hurt. I had my smile lines and nasial folds (sp?) done. Tears came to my eyes. so the cons are in my opinion, that it hurts.
Also, results were not entirely symmetrical. I still have a faint line on my right smile but nothing on the left. Also, on the left side, some product got into the far left upper... more
Very happy with the results, I had Radiesse in the folds from my nose to the corners of my mouth, was not as painful as I thought it would be. Suppose to go back for a checkup in one week. I could see the results before leaving the office. It has been 7 hours and I have very little bruising and very little swelling. more
