After a lot of research including this site I decided to go for Radiesse. I had eyelid surgery before so my upper face looks good and barely any crows feet , but around my mouth, from nose to mouth and the marionette lines were pretty deep.
I am 66 years old, have excellent skin and not many wrinklen, but my criteria was to only go to a place where the doctor does the injections and also to start out slowly.
On Oct. 31, 2008 I had the Radiesse injection done. First the area around the mouth was numbed with a cream and I waited 20 minutes before the doctor did the injections; countless needle pricks but it did not hurt. He used one syringe of Radiesse.
Now it is 3 days later and it looks good, I have one little bruise. The doctor did suggest to wait one month to see how it settles and looks. Then I will decide whether I want to add to it. So far it is a great improvement and I am happy.
