I only wanted to correct my smiles lines, but the place I went puffed up my cheeks instead of correcting the lines. They are minimized, but the lower sides of my mouth remind me of droopy dog as the sides of my mouth are too puffy.
Also, now when I smile it is causing under eye wrinkles because there is a dip between the eye& too puffy cheeks. Also, she put more in on 1 side....so now... more
Hate the way I look after Radiesse injection! But I have good news now - I went back to see another doctor today, she tried to remove some from the lip and cheeks with the syringe and I think it looks a little better.

Got 2 0.8 syringes (1.6 total). The numbing creme helped and i think they mixed some of the lidocaine with the radiess-I'm not sure, but the pain was not so bad.

I had radiesse on my naso-labial lines and a couple of acne scars 3 days ago. I am much better today, but I was EXTREMELY swollen for the first 2 days, and I also have bruising at the some injection sites. My face was really sore for the first couple of days, but today it is getting better.
Don't believe anyone who tells you that you can return to work or your eve more

I have many friends who have had more
