At age 35 now and after getting botox for two...
At age 35 now and after getting botox for two years now and being extremely happy with the results, I decided to try a filler for my smile lines. Doc said he reccomended radiesse.
I didn't want my husband to find out and he said he wouldn't notice because I may have rednes at the injection site but I could cover that with makeup. About twenty minutes after leaving the office my face was so swollen I looked like the cowardly lion from Wizard of Oz. I called back and asked if maybe the filler had moved so he recommended I come back.
Upon return he massaged(immense pain) and sent me on my way saying it would go down within 24 hours. It has now been 4 days and I still look HORRIBLE.
Anyone with swelling experience PLEASE contact me and let me know your experience. I am horrified. Be careful with this product!
