I feel so bad for you because I truly FEEL YOUR PAIN!!! I was there just 2 1/2 months ago! And I went into a DEEP depression over how I looked! If you read my story on my profile you will understand just how I felt. I was on the computer day and night researching my options.....this is what I concluded.....I think it's best if you can just give it some time to settle down because you probably have a lot of inflammation going on right now. Since you already had steroids injected as well as antibiotics and creams.....I would probably leave it alone to see how it settles down....I'm afraid that if you do too much too soon it might make it worse. It will get better but it is going to take time....I know you don't want to hear that but this product isn't something you can just get rid of with another injection & that's the real tragedy! I hate hearing that someone else is going thru this!! I just don't understand WHY these doctors are continuing to use this in areas that its not recommended for.....blows my mind! The one thing I am SOOOO grateful for is the fact that my doctor was somewhat conservative with the product and therefor I don't think mine was or is as bad as some of the others on here. Like I said, I do have a stain under my eyes from this now...and I do feel it damaged my skin in that area. So all I can do now is monitor it and PRAY it continues to improve with time. I truly hope yours gets better too! I do feel like the sonic toothbrush helped me...but like I said....be very gentle with it. God bless and take care.....

Hi All, I called Radiesse and they say they do not recommend this product under the eyes...so why would my dr. say otherwise? How can we take our experiences and make it widely known? Anyone want to join me? I am on day 20; I went to a double certified plastic surgeon yesterday who injected the sites with steriods and the puffiness is much reduced...although I look like a horrific mess....red, bruising, swelling. I am on oral steriods, antibiotics and steriod creams...my entire system is effected as is my mood. I believe that there is a purpose to all that happens, so where might we collectively make an impact? Q: Do you think it is too soon to try the sonic care toothbrush? I invite support

I wish I had seen this 17 days ago; I got Radiesse under my eyes and one is very inflamed and the other red. All suggestions are welcomed as what I should do right away that can help. I am quite freaked.

I wish there were some good advice to be given. I tried the heat, massage, kenalog and laser options. Nothing has really worked. It does get much better than where you are now, but it takes a very long time. It'll be 3 years for me in October and I still have a big lump and tons of skin damage and new wrinkles. But I think mine was one of the worse cases. Others have improved dramatically in as little as 3 or 4 months as the carrier dissolves. The longest I've heard is 7 years. I'm hoping it doesn't take that long for me. At that point, the creases it is making will be permanent even if the product dissolves. That seems to be my path at this time. It's a nightmare.

I feel your pain.....I said the same thing! I am now 3 months post injections and it has gotten better BUT I do still have a slight staining under my eyes. I'm really hoping that goes away in time. I think doing the warm compresses with the sonic toothbrush will help to dissolve it quicker. If you read some of the other post on here....you need to turn the toothbrush around so the back part of the brush is against the skin. Don't press too hard....just enough so that it vibrates the skin. It might aggravate the area a little but it really does help to break it up. I honestly don't know why doctors are still using this for under the eyes!!! Haven't they heard enough horror stories by now!!!!???? I hope this helps....time is your friend in this situation. Good luck!

I don't think the rotating brush is suitable for the under eye area as the skin is very delicate there. If the radiesse has been there for ages it won't make any difference anyway as the thing that dissolves is the gel that encases the product and this usuallly dissolves in the first 3-6 months. As there is very little movement in the eye area it will probably take way longer than an area with movement (say around the mouth). I have a lump under my eye which is yellow lump if you pull the skin it is clearly visible. It has not reduced much since September last year. Some of the dermatologists are having some success with pulse dye laser but will likely take several treatments to help 'dissolve'. This makes the most sense to me. I think when the Radiesse is too close to the skin (then you can see it is a hard lumpy material used for dental work) it seems to cause skin inflammations and reactions in a lot of people as it is supposed to be injected deep down and is supposed to mimic bone (which is why it is used to create cheekbones, etc). No-one really knows for sure how long it takes to go away if ever. I am personally not hopeful but I will attempt my second pulse-dye laser to see if there is any further improvement - the first one definitely did reduce the lump a bit. The pulse dye laser does cause severe bruising tho' so be aware of this. It can also cause pigmentation, etc. The best is to go to a good dermatologist and discuss it.

Radiesse Wrecks! Clarisonic rotating facial brush helps- (probably similiar to the sonicare toothbrush remedy described on this site) even the so called "doctors" don't even know that. They don't know because they don't research anything.

Thank you. I tried it this morning, but it caused a lot of inflammation and swelling. Is that normal? How long did you leave it on your eyelid?

Hi, Is the brush OK under the eyes, or too much. I have one lump under left eye. It would be ok, except under lump is a sunken in area where radiesse didn't take. The right eye turned out nice. I was stupid because I wanted to go for longer lasting solution and did not consider the permenant damage that could occur. Best of luck to you all

Yes, I used it under both eyes. Area under the left eye was worse because I too had a lump there. clarisonic brush really did seem to help it though.
  • Reply
I woudn't suggest using the clarisonic on any eye area. the skin is too thin. better to use the back of a sonicare toothbrush (if the vibration is too strong, wrap it in a tissue & then apply the back of the toothbrush to the radiesse area). I've also head that injecting saline into the area followed by strong massage can help, if within 3 months of receiving the radiesse - but it's too late for me (i've had it in the sides of my mouth for 5 years). it does go away, but areas that are very non-mobile (the eye areas, sides of the mouth & temple area), it takes a very long time to dissipate. That's why I've started using the back of my sonicare toothbrush. Good luck!

In October, it will be 3 LONG years for me. I still have a big lump under my left eye and my skin is crepey and bumpy from the product. My doctor thinks the lump is scar tissue now and cannot be treated. I think it may still be the Radiesse. Can anyone tell me if their Radiesse lasted for longer than 2 years, 7 months with a rather large lump? Thank you! I'm still suffering tremendously and don't know what to do. Any suggestions for the crepey skin would be welcome as well. I tried total FX a year ago. It helped a little, but not much.

your doctor is just like all the ignorant ones on here who don't want to take responsibility for injecting a semi-permanent filler that you can't remove. trust me - it's no scar tissue. I've had radiesse along the sides of my mouth for 5 years now (nasolabial lines - only the sides since the top portion that moves more did dissolve). Radiesse should be outlawed. I've spoken to more women that hate their results & the doctor is clueless as to how to remove it - because they can't. it's also not a normal filler - it mimicks bone more than fat - so it's really too stiff to place in the face (but too many doctors are more concerned about making a quick buck from an expensive filler than your best interest). Try using the back of a sonicare toothbruth for 5 mins a day on it.

Hi Nikibeach, I completely agree with you. I don't think it's scar tissue. To me, it's pretty clear that it's radiesse, since that's where the injection is concentrated. I haven't seen any real improvement in 6 months in the lump. I'm at 2 years, 7 months post injection now. Since you're at 5 years, can you tell me if you saw any gradual improvement each six months or year after 3 years? Or has it stayed exactly the same? I greatly appreciate your insight. It makes me ill to think how many of us have had our faces and lives destroyed by all of this. Thank you!

DA50, yes the injection stuff is still there. If I feel under my eyes with my fingers, it is definitely still firm and I can still even feel the delineation around the stuff. I don't think this stuff ever goes away. Like I say, in 18 months to a year, unless you had known me before, you probably wouldn't think twice when looking at me that I had had anything put there. But even still to today, in pictures I see the difference. My family does too if I ask them.

here's my suggestion, based on my own personal experience. get a sonic care toothbruth. hold the back of the toothbrush up, against the area that has radiesse in it. it will slowly break up the area, allowing the body to absorb the radiesse. I know because I've had radiesse in the sides of my face (nasolabial lines) for 5 years. I was overfilled & only the top 1" part dissolved. the rest (going down to almost my jawline has remained - about 50-60% since. I started using my sonicare toothbrush because no one had any answers (including all the doctors on here). they're no help. no one wants to surgically remove the radiesse, as it'll probably cause more problems. any filler will always dissolve faster in more mobile areas of the face. I've been doing the sonicare toothbrush remedy for about 3 weeks now & can start to see a difference. I was only doing it 2x a week. but now that I'm seeing improvement, I've moved it up to every day. (I just do it while watching tv & have a small mirror to make sure I'm holding it right on top of the area). I hope that helps! I can truly empathize with you. I personally think radiesse should be banned, as there's no way to remove it & it mimics bone more than fat tissue.

Dear nikibeach....THANK YOU SO MUCH for that information!!! I will definitely try that!!

Nikibeach, Thank you. Is it still working. I had Radiesse under my eyes in December and have a bag under my left eye now. It's added ten years! I'm worried after reading so many Radiesse nightmare stories!

Hi Tiffany - the radiesse is SLOWLY going away - not fast. But, I figure....even if it takes 6 months of this - still better than waiting years - which is what I've been doing.

Thanks for the encouragement Niki. I guess I will massage and hope it speeds up the process. Best to you too.

Can you provide an update? Is the toothbrush still helping? How are you now?
  • Reply
And, can you tell me how many minutes you do it each day? It's causing a lot of inflammation when I tried it.
  • Reply
it's helping a little. it seems to be a very slow process. it took over 2 years for the radiesse to dissolve in the upper part of my nasolabial lines (where there's alot of movement) - the sides is where i'm still left with it. So, I figure, it may take several months to truly dissolve - but the purposed is to create movement the way the body does in order to help it assimilate out quicker. Fillers that are places in high movement areas of the face always dissolve faster. I don't think a clarisonic will help much. that's more superficial & doesn't press on the deep tissue enough.

take a break if it's causing inflammation. you don't want to press too hard either. try maybe 5 mins a day - every other day.
