I used to Dr. Stephens when he persuaded me to try fillers for my face. He chose Radiesse for me. After the injections into my cheeks, I was left with severe pain and numbness caused by a burning feeling that encompassed the entire right side of my face. Why, you ask? It was because the needle hit the main trigeminal nerve in my face. It is a year later and I still have nerve pain,... more
Went to a dermatologist's office and did some research on the medical staff. Nothing alarming and looked like a good choice. I believe the injections were done well and I just don't think this product was for me. Not a fan of the constant upsells that were attempted while I was having this done.
Initially I just wanted a little more firmer injectable on my jowls as I had used Restylane... more
I had Radiesse injections in both cheeks. On one side, the doctor hit a nerve and left me with trigeminal neuralgia according to the neurologist I saw. I could not feel the whole side of my face from my eye to my ear to my lip and teeth. I couldn't even feel my teeth when I flossed. It has been a severely traumatic experience for me. It's only in the last month that I have been able to... more
3 months before my wedding I got Radiesse with Dr.Chiu at Bellevue Laser & Cosmetic Center. After losing a few pound for my wedding I noticed that my face was looking sunken in and tired. I met with Dr. Chiu and she explained the various fillers and suggested Radiesse for me. My fillers look extremely natural and everyone told me I looked well rested and refreshed the best compliment you... more
I was feeling like my lower face was starting to sag a bit.
I had Dr. J at Northwest dermatology inject Radiesse filler around the smile lines approximately two weeks ago. The injection itself was not painful and I saw immediate visible results with improved volumizing of my cheeks. I look years younger and all my friends keep asking what I had done. more
I came into the clinic interested in fillers for my cheeks, I have never had a procedure like this so I was very nervous. Dr. J was very thorough in explaining what to expect. She was very gentle and I am very happy with my results, I get a ton of compliments! more
I had Radiesse on my marionette lines about 12 weeks ago. I was very bruised and it was very painful. Within a week of the injection it started to look like I had had nothing done at all. I went to see the doctor and she injected me with more Radiesse. This time I did not bruise as badly but my entire chin became very red. Not just the injection sites but my entire chin. Then about four... more

What is next ? more
I am 38 and saw a picture of myself and noticed that under my eyes the skin was sagging badly and I have dark circles despite the thousands of dollars I've spent on expensive ($300+) face creams. I looked so exhausted all of the time even though I wasn't.
I read about radiesse and juviderm treatments in a magazine and after seeing that picture, found a dermatologist. I knew going in that... more
I've had Restylane. I've had Juvederm. With those experiences under my belt, I thought I'd give Radiance (Radiesse) a try. Advertised as one of the longer lasting fillers that doesn't require an allergy test, I was ready to up my game.
Nasal labial folds be gone!
The injections are not comfortable, and that was even with a complete dental block. It stings going in and has a lingering... more
I had this two siringes into the lines down the side of my jaw from the corner of my lips. I had a lot of bruising. I made the common mistake of not researching this stuff first. When I complaiined to the doctor's office they were not interested in knowing. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH. Thank goodness I did not schedule any surgery with this office. Most of it went into my checks where I have... more
