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 had this done two weeks ago on a Thursday night and I was at work on Friday morning with no bruising and very slight swelling. All day people told me that I looked good in that color, or asked if I lost weight, or if I cut my hair! Only my hairstylist noticed it was my face and she was VERY impressed! It took years off my face, but not in a "Oh my gosh, a facelift" kind of way!
My husband was totally against me having it done, but after seeing the results, grungingly admits I look GOOD!!!!
