I had Radiesse a week ago and am delighted with it. The nurse practitioner is one who has also done broad band laser, botox, oxygen-facials and dysport for me as well. I believe the skill level of the person performing the procedure is crucial. I would recommend finding a SKILLED practioner and ask to see their before and afters. I had my cheekbones filled and although a subtle change, it made me look refreshed and gave me a lift in my whole facial area.

I had radiesse injected into my cheek bone area a week ago, but just last night I started getting a salty taste in my mouth on one side that won't go away (it has continued on today). I called my DR and expressed that I was worried that the radiesse was leaking down into my mouth??? Does anyone know about this?? I am completely freaked out and of course I don't want it draining down and dissipating! Thank you!


I had Radiesse treatment since Aug. 2008 and last one was Dec. 2009. I read everything, have a board certified plastic reconstructive surgeon and got a delayed immune reaction. I’m going for complete blood work and x-rays. I am so scared that I will not get well. An autoimmune response was one of my fears. I didn't want any of the other fillers because of problems. I have numbness in my hands, pain, and swelling and tingling in my hands. This stuff hardens and it attaches to bone and can forms granuloma and immunologic phenomena. I thought the body got rid of this product. I hope my primary doctor can help me. I am waiting for an answer too.

Thanks, yes I of course did extensive research before deciding on a provider. He is one of the highest recommended board certified facial plastic surgeons in Portland, OR.... Have you had any salty drainage in your mouth? I think my glands may have gotten a little irritated; that's what the doctor said...

Pros: -Amazing results when added to cheek bones....

Pros: -Amazing results when added to cheek bones. I LOVE it!!!! When administered by a skilled Dr, it can heighten your cheek bones, giving your whole face a lifted, youthful look. -Minimal downtime; just a little puffy/swollen the day of, but that's it!

Cons: Doesn't last THAT long- maybe 6 months at the most (for me). Expensive ($750/syringe)


Magilke or Gasch ( Teresa Robinson at Gasch will do treatment)
