What Radiesse results can you expect?

Radiesse has a patient satisfaction study on its site. The study measured patient satisfaction with Radiesse and then compared it with satisfaction for Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm.

Needless to say, as these are popular cosmetic fillers, I had to compare the Radiesse study with the real-life reviews here on RealSelf.com. Here's how everything stacks up...

Radiesse-reported Results

96% of patients were satisfied with Radiesse vs. 58% for Restylane.

90% were satisfied with Radiesse, vs. 48% for Perlane, and 7% for Juvederm.

RealSelf.com Reader Reviews

Juvederm:  65% said it's Worth It

Restylane: 61% said it's Worth It

Radiesse:  50% said it's Worth It

That's right--only 50% of RealSelf.com reader reviews thought Radiesse was worth it. I realize this is not quite an apples-to-apples comparison, but it is one of those things that makes you go, "hmm".
