Radiesse is a great treatment for filling lines and folds in the face. (Which I had both) The optimum word is "had". The local anesthesia is in the Radiesse filler and in my opinion, made the procedure less uncomfortable. I instantly saw a change, and the results were beautiful. For me, it was an easy way to improve the loss of volume around my jaw line and fill the facial defects, which I saw when I looked in the mirror. I felt my skin was collapsing around my lower face, but not anymore.
I was injected with Radiesse in my cheeks, marionette lines and jaw area. I was considering a face lift, but not now... not for at least a few more years. I look younger, better and more rested. But that's just my opinion.
