Depending on your body type and genetic background...
- 18 Sep 2011
Depending on your body type and genetic background (take a look at your relatives because that is the future of your face too!) this is an amazing option to look your best. I would also like to add that in my case this will not be something I can just have done once every year but rather cosmetic maintenance that may need a touch up. If you go into the Radiesse experience knowing you may need the occasional touch up and that it is a cosmetic enhancement, not a time machine you will be very satisfied with the results.
Just a little background so hopefully this will help others - I am in my late 50s and a lean build. I have been getting botox for years to help with my migraines but I have to admit the cosmetic effects are an added benefit. As I entered my mid 50s I began to notice that even with botox my face began to look 'tired' and that was because I was losing my cheek volume. I decided to give Radiesse a try after a lot of research on the pros and cons and a conversion with Dr Klein after my last botox treatment. I initially loved the results of my first Radiesse treatment (I did have some bruising) but as the swelling went down I had a 'sunkin' look again. Because of the research I did, I knew this was a common complaint and that a touch-up visit was to be expected in some cases, so I went back in and absolutely love the results. My mid face area has a youthful appearance.
My Doctor: Lorrie Klein, MD
Dr Klein is a very skilled dermatologist - I have used other doctors in the past for botox treatments and once I found her when I moved to Orange County I have used no one else. Her results are natural and effective. As for Dr Klein's ability to artistically inject Radiesse - I am thrilled. She has an eye for symmetry and my face looks even, healthy, and youthful.
