All I can say is dont do it. My Dr. talked me into it, I trusted her and five months later my face is a mess. I should have heeded all the warning I read here but trusted her and have ruined my face. Two weeks after my eyes looked great this picture is five months later, not some are telling me I may need surgery to correct which I can afford and I feel my face is ruined. more
I have been receiving Radiesse injections for the past seven years. I have always used the same doctor and the injection sites are always rotated. This has helped maintain an evenly corrected face. Radiesse tends to last longer for me than most people and I'm relatively certain that the repeated corrections have helped to aid and assist in the formation of collagen.

Yes, it was relatively painless, marionette lines gone. yet instead of everyone seeing my marionette lines they can now stare at the redness which is till there on both sides after 4 weeks,. I was given Apexicon Cream to put on twice a day and still the redness persists. It is so embarrassing. I don't know what else to do. If it wasn't for the redness and the bumps I feel when i touch the... more
I had Radiess done twice by two different doctors in my nasolabial fold. One charged 700 for a full syringe one charged 900. I got NO results at all either time. At first it looks nice because your a little swollen but it goes down in a day. It was not worth my time. I guess we all have to experiment a little to see what works best for us. more
After years of up and down weight loss combined with age and poor bone structure, my face was pretty beat up. Tiny cheek bones, and a narrow maxilla provided horrible structure for my cheeks. I had a deep concave look that was just not flattering at all. The price was wonderful, as I received 4 syringes of Radiesse, for 2k. The injections were slightly painful, and the swelling was moderate.... more
Doctor had messaged the injection at the left temple to make it flatter, before I left the office. He said I should massage the areas firmly three times a day for three days. When I got home the injections in my cheek had swelled to my lower jaw line. The left side of my face is completely imbalanced with the right. I tried to massage it up into my cheek, but after several tries, several... more
Last night I had my second Radiesse treatment. My first was in October of 2008, and although I felt the effects from the first treatment were holding up well, I wanted a little touch up. After being numbed with a topical cream, I was injected through the top surface of my skin. A total of two vials were used during each procedure, and since they had been m more
Having radiesse, botox and restalyn gave my face a refreshed look without having an invasive procedure such as a face lift. It looks completely natural, my husband did not even realize I had it done. There was a little bruising at first, but it was easily concealed.
What I like about this plastic surgeon is that he uses a more conservative approach and the results are subtle, not glaring... more
