My 38 bday was coming up in March and I felt like it was time to do "something" to fix the unfortunate aging process that was starting to really catch up with me and making me feel very self conscious. Although Radiesse wasn't the only procedure I had done it really made a huge difference to help me regain some fullness in my check bone area which helped with the saggy ness that kept looking... more
I am 32 years old. A recent picture made me decide to get Radiesse for my NLF. First picture is what made me get the injection. 2nd and 3rd pictures were taken 2 hours after injection. The swelling was pretty visible. 4th and 5th pictures were taken 3 days later. All the redness and well went away and I'm very happy with the result. more

I am a 48 year old male with good skin and just a minimal amount of wrinkles and some slackening of the skin. After having Juvederm injected into the tear troughs (which looks amazing) I wanted to take care of the beginning of naso-labial folds (one side was more pronounced than the other. Although my PS initially thought there was enough wrinkling to worry about, he did suggest having... more
Radiesse is quite unforgiving. If it is at all overdone or injected unevenly, it shows. To make matters worse, it takes a long time to disappear unlike restylane or juvederm, which can be eliminated if the patient is displeased.
I had it done to conceal the hollows forming in my cheeks. I now seem to have implants on the upper part of my cheeks, and the hollows below are more pronounced... more
