44 yr old female: I had one syring divided up between nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Results lasted three days on the nasolabial and no results on the marionette lines. Returned for more filler (one full syringe) concentrating only on the marionette lines and I had one syringe of botox to lift marionette lines and to lift jowl area.
I see only minor improvements and results are fading fast (2 weeks). Luckily and grateful that my doctor and the Radiesse rep. waived the fee for the 2nd syringe.
I was heartbroken about the results and costs. I wanted this to work since I can't afford surgery. Not sure what my next step should be.
Must use the Lanicane, also insist on the numbing cream and ice packs before injections -it does help the pain. I had no bruising, swelling or bumps afterward.
My Doctor: name not provided
She seems very caring and wants to make this work for me, but I think she is at a lose too.
