Had radiesse injections on August 24th, 12 for nasiolabial lines. The doctor used lidociane first then injected 0.8cc of radiesse on each side. Two days later I developed what he called "shingles" on the right side next to my nose. I was treated with antiviral and antibiotics. I now have scarring that looks like acne scars. I am so disappointed with the result. The doctor failed to tell me before hand that he had another patient deveop shingles also. I think it may have been the filler coming out of my pores.  Don't ever get this stuff put into your face!

I'm sorry to hear that. How long did it take to get the shingles under control?
