First Radiesse Experience! Laguna Niguel, CA
I've been wanting to try a filler ever since I...
Dr. Klein explained what she would be doing and made me feel more comfortable right away. She used a cooling spray that numbs the skin, and this, and the lidocaine in the radiesse, actually made the injections pretty much painless. After she was done I saw the results right away, and my once hollow looking cheeks looked nice and healthy and fuller - nothing obvious, but much better. She gave me an ice pack to use on the ride home, and if things stay pretty much the same, I don't think I'll have much swelling or bruising. Any immediate swelling already seems to be subsiding. I took the medical grade arnica supplement she recommended before and after the procedure, so that is probably helping too. I will update in a week or so, but I'm very pleased so far. I also think I'm hooked - I love the improvement and will definitely want to keep this up!
1 Week Later, Doing Great
My main issue was those dents that some people get across their cheeks as they get older. I don't have much fat on my body anyways, and my face was looking gaunt because of it. The secondary issue was nasolabial folds that I wanted a little filled in, but I didn't have enough filler in the one syringe to do both cheeks and NLF's. Still I think I look less gaunt and tired with just my cheeks done. Makeup looks nicer now, especially blush, because my cheeks are a litle more full rather than hollow. I think I'll go back in about 6 months and get a little more done to both cheeks and NLF's.
Dr. Klein is an expert, I don't think I would trust anyone else with filler injections. Plus, she's friendly, honest, realistic and has a natural aesthetic in her work.
