Xeomin - a Worthwhile Option! - New Jersey

Radiesse - Temple Area - New Jersey, NJ

I have been receiving Radiesse injections for the past seven years. I have always used the same doctor and the injection sites are always rotated. This has helped maintain an evenly corrected face.

I have Crohn's also and my initial reasoning for exploring fillers was to correct the effects of rapid weight loss. I'm sorry to hear that your DR didn't abide by your wishes. Have things improved now that a little time has passed? READ COMMENT

Fortunately, I have not - from any of them. I used to be a sufferer of tension headaches and since I've been using these products, they have subsided entirely. From time to time the injection site can be sore from the needle - and I... READ COMMENT

After having had both Botox and Dysport multiple times throughout the past 6 years, Botox & Dysport began to grow less effective in lower dosages. I've responded very well to Xeomin. I think what's important is where it's injected and... READ COMMENT
