After losing a considerable amount of weight, I finally had achieved the body that I always wished I’d had; however, my face took such a beating—from the fat loss—that friends were concerned for my health. I was in the best shape of my life and I did not look healthy.
I went to an aesthetician—I had a Groupon—to correct my smile lines, which had become folds, and the deep troughs... more
I had a cheek augmentation done with Radiesse. It was preformed by one of the staff there who is a PA. She was really wonderful. I am so bad with names. I will have to find her name and update this. She was extremely gentle, friendly, and I am very pleased with my results. I had one large tube injected into each cheek. It was virtually painless.

I had radiesse injected into my cheek bone area a week ago, but just last night I started getting a salty more
I'm glad other people on this site have had good experiences. I really wish I could be commenting the same. I developed a granuloma under my right eye after using Radiesse which now requires surgery. This isn't for cosmetic reasons (though it is very unappealing) it's medically required.
The granuloma (as identified by a Plastic Surgeon)is adding pressure to my orbital rim,pressing against my... more
I saw today that radiesse got officially approved as a wrinkle treatment. my doctor introduced me to radiesse nearly a year ago. Maybe my clinic had special access to it (?)
I'm really happy how radiese got rid of my marionette lines around my mouth. It filled these in and it seems like it took years off my face.
