It causes lumps and bad bruising - Don't Do It! - New York, NY

Because of all the bad Radiesse reviews, I wanted Restylane to fill my tear troughs (under-eye hollows). My doctor talked me out of Restylane because it supposedly has bad side effects and wouldn’t last that long. I explained to him that I’ve read a bunch of reviews on Radiesse and it causes lumps and bad bruising. He told me that these complications are highly unlikely and insured that this will not happen. So I went ahead and had 1cc of Radiesse injected into both eyes. Here I am, 2 days later with a swelled up knot under my right eye and a massive headache. My left eye is normal and there’s is not much of a difference than before. I don’t know why I decided to go against my instinct and trust a doctor that is only out to make money. All I know is I have deep regret for this decision and am very very scared.

Judging by what others have said about Radiesse, this seems like this might last a long time I hope this goes down soon!!!

Okay...after almost 3 weeks, the swelling under my eye is completely gone and my eyes are back to normal.  The hollows under my eyes are gone too, but the dark circles are still there.  I was expecting for the dark discoloration to go away , but I am not completely dissatisfied.   Makeup does help a lot. 

I’m more satisfied with results now than I was when I first had it done.   The doctor really does know what he's doing and I feel bad for not giving him the benefit of the doubt. I don’t think I’d recommend the procedure to anyone because of the emotional rollercoaster it puts you on, but I’m not totally against it.   I'm thinking of going back in the near future.  We'll see...
