I developed a horrible infection after receiving Radiesse in my nasolabial folds. I received Radiesse in September and 5 months later I still have a rash on one side that won't go away no matter what the dermatologists give me. I had to be on an antiviral medication for a month after the Radiesse because of the viral infection that took over the left side of my face. What a horrible... more
I had marionette lines and indentation from cystic acne.
Dr Brooks did a good job injecting me with Radiesse, the only problem is it didn't last very long for me. 2 months- if that..Other than that, he was very understanding, accommodating. Just wish the Radiesse would've lasted as long as he predicted. Oh well. I would love for him to offer Silikon 1000! Until then, I will be... more
I received Radiesse in my lower face area (nasolabial folds and around corners of my mouth) last September, nearly a year ago. I had previously had Juvederm in the nasolabial folds but never had anything done to the corners of my mouth. I had slight depressions but not super deep folds. (I'm 36.)
My results with Radiesse would have been less traumatic if I had had a different doctor.... more
Well I finally took the leap and committed to do something about my forever weak chin, and the fat loss in my cheeks following 50 pounds weight loss(and age at 46). I'm 3 hours post injection and absolutely LOVE it!
For the first time in my life I actually don't mind looking at my profile, it was just enough with 1 syringe to give my chin definition, projection and a little lift of... more
Used it for nasolabial folds. They were completely gone after treatment and now, over 10 months later, I still see an about 75% improvement. I did not have any bruising even though I usually bruise very easily. The rather minor swelling was gone within two days.
I have read in numerous articles & magazines that Radiesse should not be used anywhere else in sensitive areas, such as lips... more
I had Radiesse injected 11 months ago to augment my nose bridge and was thinking about getting it done again this month since most of it has dissipated. However, I heard horror stories about granulomas that can develop after a few years. I'm assuming this is true for the earlier fillers or is this also true for Radiesse? A cosmetic surgeon told more
You're doing the right thing in researching the options. Unlike other reviews my dermatologist used 2 syringes and she placed the product not only in the folds but above & around to "lift" the skin. My face, from the eyes down was topically anesthetized so I had no pain, just little pricks. It took a little over 2 hours including the time to become numb. I am just under 50... more
I loved the results in my hollow cheeks, but unfortunately it lasted only 2 months. I paid $800 for 1 syringe of Radiesse. I think $800 for only 2 months is NOT worth it. I need to find another alternative. Sculptra did not work for me either, and had 3 treatments of Sculptra, and Restylane only lasts about 2 months in me as well. more
