I had Radiesse injected into my marionette lines a week ago and don't see any difference. How long do I have to wait to see improvement?
How Long After Radiesse is Injected in Marionette Lines Should I Expect to See Results?

Radiesse works immediately after injection
One week after Radiesse
A week after injections with Radiesse the majority of swelling will have subsided and you should be seeing what your results are. If you don't see the correction you want then most likely you just need more Radiesse. It is always best to follow up with the office that injected you and decide the next step.

Results with Fillers
Radisse should be injected to complete correction. What you see is what you get at the time of injection. Radiesse works quite well in the marionette lines, but if not skilfully injected can make you look like a chipmunk.

Volume is an important factor in results
Radiesse, or softer fillers such as restylane or juvederm can sometimes require more filler than one might have initially thought. I would suggest going back to your doctor to see if additional product might get you the result you are looking for.The results should be immediate. I would probably blend in the softer fillers the closer to the mouth you get.
Results After Radiesse
Radiesse results should be immediately apparent. If no result is noted, it is usually related to insufficient volume of Radiesse injected, or possible to poor technique. Radiesse typically works very well for marionette lines.
Immediate results with Radiesse
With Radiesse , or any dermal filler, the results should always be immediate. There is always a chance of bruising,swelling, and redness that may last a day or so. After that has diminished, you should clearly see a noted difference. It is quite possible that the injector did not use enough product to bring you to optimal correction. Additional filler can safely be added resulting in the correction you desire.
Results with Radiesse are immediate
Results with Radiesse are immediate. If you do not see any difference at this point, you are likely not going to see any further changes. Furthermore, I would definitely recommend using a softer filler around the mouth area - such as Juvederm or Restylane. These softer fillers are much more natural feeling around the mouth. We do not recommend Radiesse for use in the lips or around the mouth.
