I have been getting microdermabrasion & peels for the past two years and have been happy with the results! At my 59th birthday, I decided to step up and try fillers. Since I trusted my provider, I told her to do whatever she thought would look the best. She injected three 1.5cc syringes of Radiesse. Most of it went into my cheeks to replace the loss of volume in my cheekbones which also improved my smile lines. She used the rest to touch up around the mouth.
It was painless! She used a topical anesthetic, a dental block, and painkiller in the syringe.

I think the key to getting a great result is to save your money and get it done right by an experience provider. The reason many are disappointed is because they do not have enough injected to make a difference. Obviously, I needed more at 59 than if I started younger, but I would also say that having an experienced provider who understands facial structure is equally important!
