I initially had this procedure done to correct tear troughs that were just starting to become more prominent. I am 39 years old and work in a field whereI am photographed constantly. I had thought I was getting Juvederm done but had actually signed off on Radiesse!!
The Nurse Practicitioner had informed me of this when I went back after not being entirely happy with the results the first time. She also injected the small amount that remained into my lips at my request. I am not happy with the results of this as well!! The first time the results wern't so bad but went back for a bit of unevenness. The second time was awful. I now have a prominent line above my eye socket and small lumps which you can feel when pressing down into the skin. I am sick to my stomach bc I look worse now than when I originally came in because my tear troughs were not quite that bad to begin with. If I would have known she was going to use Radiesse I would have opted out. I feel like I was duped and don't quite understand why this wasn't communicated to me more. I had told her as well that I had my lips done with Juvederm in the past and was happy with the results. You would have thought at that time she would have said "well, I am choosing to use Radiesse on you today because . . .!? I have an appointment again today at 2:00 and don't quite know how to proceed. Can another filler be used to smooth out this area? I will ALWAYS double check on what I am being injected with before I receive the injection. Please, any further comments or advice would be greatly appreciated.
