Radiesse Cheeks under Eyes - Greenwood, IN

Not sure yet.... Had it injected twice! First time...

Not sure yet.... Had it injected twice! First time I had very little to no bruising. We went conservative the first time and at two weeks we could tell I needed more in left eye and a drop or two in the right. Unfortunately she hit a blood vessel this time and I swell up like a balloon. This time I have to puffy bags under both eyes... Now she did not inject much in cheek area on right.... I'm going to give it time and decide if it was worth it or not. After first injection I was pleased with results... So well see if all goes well...

No I am sorry I have been told you just have to wait it out. please be careful next time. There is really nothing you can do because Radiese is a thick calcium liquid. You just cant get it off your body easily. sit tight and wait for a year but I am pretty sure your eyes will look better in 6 months and don't forget to exercise and increase your metabolism this will help your body to flush it out. try bikram yoga a couple of times a week.

Its Been Almost 2 weeks since 2nd injection....

Its Been Almost 2 weeks since 2nd injection. Swelling is getting much better. After this experience I would recommend Radiesse for Cheeks. I had a much better experience with Juvaderm for around the eyes. When Radiesse was injected she did not inject in the hollow of my eyes. She put a lot of pressure at the hollow and I could tell she did go very deep at the cheek bone like she was supposed to... Ill post another pic in 2 weeks and let everyone know my progress. Thank you for all your comments!

shows the area that Radiese should be used for. I did a extensive research and 2 consultations with 2 different doctors before I had it injected to the bridge of my nose because it was a off label use. The doctor also immediately mold my the injection in the bridge of my nose before it settles. i was maybe slightly puffy (from the numbing cream) but not very noticeable. i came home and no one noticed and than the numb subsided and within 3 days i see the true result and it was wonderful. Yes, I took a risk and just do a lot of research before you do anything at all. I hope this help you in any small way.

Also guys don't go for any off FDA label use even though some products are fine and shows promises just to be on the safe side and if you must do a off label use please do extensive research before it or find a really good doctor or clinic. don't just go for the cheapest discounted spas or med clinics out there. This is your face we are talking about!
We are spending money to make it better not worse!

It's been almost 3 weeks and nothing has changed....

It's been almost 3 weeks and nothing has changed. Steroids have not helped much. I'm pretty sure its inflammatory issue. Area is not hard or lumpy . It's puffy and swollen. Antihistamine has helped the most for me but have to take it everyday. Also, avoiding high salt foods. I have to wear heavy cover up make up too....

Waiting it out.... Hope it's gone by our big summer vacation!!! I don't want to look like this all summer...

It sounds like you are doing what you can to help speed your healing. When & where are you going on vacation? Hoping this clears up for you before that, because I know how much I would want it cleared up, but please don't let it steal your excitement over the trip, k?

I think this product is luck of the draw! First injection 2 syringes and I was fine had great results just needed a little more ....and 2 nd time I ended up like this... Swollen bags under my eyes. Ps is highly qualified and did procedure correctly... I just reacted differently this time. It's too risky... Don't bank on it

You are better off using fillers that can be desolved... If u don't like results or have complication you have the option to have it removed . With radiesse you don't have that option! You r stuck waiting for it to go away. I used to get carded all the time when I order a drink. With these bags I never get carded now!!!! I feel like I aged 10 yrs

6 weeks and not much has changed... Think I am...

6 weeks and not much has changed... Think I am going to go to Dr an hour away that did my ba and see what her opinion is. Maybe she can put some juv.. in around the area to blend it a bit.. I do not know... really do not want to look like this for another few months

I had the same thing happen to me with the use of Radiesse under the eyes. It has been two years and still see color change where it was injected. I had a lower eye lift finally to get rid of the bags. The surgeon told me he could see it there laid down as a layer of plastic. He tried to scrap away what he could..Not worth it.

I just had Radiesse injected into my cheeks, smile lines, and corners of the mouth. I noticed on my left side there was a slight lump next to the corner of my mouth. I was concerned so I called my doctor and he said to wait it out until I see him in 2 weeks if it hasn't desolved by then he told me he could take it out by injecting something that would desolve the lump. Its been 5 days and it cleared up on it's own, I guess I just had first time jitters! Does anyone know how long it takes for this product to finish its process because it's been 5 days and I still can see the crease that goes down my face. I have noticed a little improvement but not a big difference I was anticipating! On my follow up visit should I get a little more injected or should I just leave it alone before something does go wrong? So far I am not completely satisfied! Anyones feedback will be greatly appreciated!!!

Woah! I can't believe they injected this in your tear trough area! That's a huge no no. This stuff is not meant to ever be injected in that area, WAY to risky since it can't be dissolved. This stuff can last for a very long time and in the tear trough area, I can only imagine it lasting 2+ years easily. Restylane is seen lasting two years in some patients (in the tear trough area) and is said to last only 6-9months in other areas.

Any and every doctor on realself will say NOT to inject Radiesse in the tear trough. If you are reading this review make sure you educate yourself on this!

Well its been a little over 3 months and my eyes...

Well its been a little over 3 months and my eyes are getting better. at the 2 month mark I saw a noticeable difference. Several weeks ago I had the new filler Beletero injected at the creases to help hid the bags... This new filler is injected very superficially so it really helped! I could use a little more but at this point I dont want to over do it since ive already been through so much. I am going to leave things alone for few more months and see then if I could use a little more of the Beletero. I will never do radiesse again... Once this clears up I am certain I will have better results with juvederm and the new Beletero filler!

I'm so sorry... It's miserable. I saw another ps last week and he recommends lower eyelid surgery. And I have another appointment next week for a second opinion. The ps said that he has to pick out the product piece by piece... He said it can last 2 years. The filler I had in fall helped mask it but I'm finding the only way to resolve this issue is surgery.
Hi, 3406anon. Looking at your Before and After Pictures, I noticed that you originally had the Radiesse injected to fill-in the lateral lines that came up under your eyes, when you smiled. I have had a kind of opposite experience. Four years ago, I successfully had Radiesse injected to give my cheeks some volume. What happened about a year or so after my injections, was, because my then fuller cheeks were "pushing-up" whenever I smiled, I subsequently developed awful under eye lines. (I shouldn't have smiled so much!) Even though the Radiesse has long worn off, I now have flat cheeks again with the added bonus of lines under my eyes when I smile, or even just when I raise my now natural cheeks, in ordinary facial movements. It is soooo aging! Thinking about getting either Restylane, Juverderm, or the new Belotero under my eyes. I am glad to see that the Belotero injections really made a nice improvement for you. My point is: Even successful Radiesse can have an unattractive reaction, after a few years! Trying not to smile....

Well... I've see 2 PS's to see what my potions are...

Well... I've see 2 PS's to see what my potions are.... One suggested under eyelid surgery and he would remove the product bit by bit and get rid of excess skin. The other suggested leaving it alone for another 6 months and see if the product has disolved. He alos, suggested Ulthera treatments under the eye to help with the fine lines in the mean time. I think I will do the Ulthera and wait it out 6 more months before I make a decision to do the surgery. It has gotten so much better but im not there all the way yet.... :( PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT allow anyone to put this product any where near your eyes!!!!!

I had Radiesse last year around my laugh lines and I liked it and it looked very natural. Had no side effects other than a little brusing. My dr was runnng a special for Belotero and you got a free syringe of Radiess so I did both around my laugh lines and chin. Within an hour of gettng the injections I started to swell and couldn't move my face. My lips turned inside out, called angioadema and I had to go to the ER and was injected with ephinephrine, steriods and benedryl. It was a very scary allergic reaction. My dr. thinks it was the Belotero but said some people don't have reactions the first time to radiesse. I've finally turned to normal but it's not worth it to me. I looked like a freak for 2 days and a chipmunk for about a week. I was lucky that my tongue didn't swell but the swollen lips were enough to scare me off. Since the filler only last 6 months, I felt it was a waste of money. I paid $475 and will now have a hospital bill on top of it.

What's TCA?
  • Reply
Hi, I had a similar issue w/Restylane and tried everything to fix my under eyes- Ulthera, fractional CO2, vitrase, VI Peel, more restylane, more vitrase, sclerotherapy, belotero, more vitrase- It was crazy and I was desperate. I must say the thing that helped most was when I finally got 2 medium TCA peels, and they were by far the least expensive. I would try that first- the doc said the inflammation also helps dissipate product. I am sorry, but I did not find ulthera to be very helpful under the eye, but you might want to try just to see if it will melt product. TCA worked better for improving skin and wrinkles.

Little over a year now...

Still have bags under eyes. It looked very bad over the spring allergy weather. It is such a slow process for this stuff to dissolve. My eyes will never be the same... A fellow realselfer suggested silikon 1000. I am definitely going to be researching it! I plan on visiting a 3rd PS to see what he thinks here soon. I plan on doing something about my baggy eyes by December!!! I think waiting for product to be gone first is a good idea so I can tackle the problem appropriately... I am so over this... NEVER NEVER AGAIN

PS #3 Consult

It went well.. As I figured he recommended I wait another 6 mths.... and see if it goes away. Since I did not have the bags before Radiesse... He is confident that they will go away with time... as this product takes for every to dissolve. He wants me to do some lymphatic massgage for couple weeks to see if it helps... and if it has not improved he was willing to do Belotero at the crease like I did... last year to help mask the bags. Which really did help the appearance...One side looks worse than the other. Also, the spring allergies did not help at all they swelled up when the pollen was high. Basically, what I'm understanding is it was injected too close to my sinus cavity and caused a reaction... I hope there is light at the end of this tunnel...

Hello, I just had beletero in my tear trough area 3 days ago. Some bruising and my left eye looks puffy. My right eye looks great except for the bruise. Anyone feel like contacting me in regards to their dermal filler in the tear trough area please do. I would like to communicate with someone that has had this procedure. *************.com.

Yep darling we have been duped. My sinus problems only got worse after the injections as each year went by. Good luck to you though and thanks for the update.

Had belotero injected again...

Had belotero injected agin to help mask my bags... It does help smooth the bags. Wanted to do juvederm but really wanted to see if this winter if the swelling has gotten better... Belotero doesn't last long but will give me an idea of what's going on later... I'm going to do some 20% peels in fall and hope like hell these bags are gone at the 2 yr mark! I'm so over it....

I only know that I had your problem with one eye when the nurse RN decided to inject me twice in the left area. We had discussed doing exactly what she had done a year ago to my under eyes. Apparently she did not read the chart, and used Radiesse, rather what she used in the past (real bright). I was pretty much freaked out the next morning when I awoke to my eye swollen shut. The bags never went away after 2 years. I finally opted to have them removed. My surgeon told me that he could see the sheets of plastic there and he tried his best to get it all. I still have discoloration after 3 years. I was going to sue the doctor, but I was told that there would not be much recovery since I did not suffer a permanent loss. And, my new doctor told me I was lucky to get my money back, which I demanded, although he refused to pay me for lost wages missing time from work. Good luck. I have tried Radiesse in my hands and had no problem. It is just not meant for the eye area. I am not sure spending money on all those treatments would work. My eye looked exactly like yours after 2 years. I opted to have under eye surgery. It looks good now, but I can still see discoloration. But at least no bags.

Was this done in spa or physicians office. Was it done under the supervision of a board certified plastic surgeon?
