Radiesse Injected to the Lines Between my Brows Caused Pain

I've been taking Tylenol, but believe it or not, it still hurts a lot. Is this common for that area? It's just a little swollen.

Pain from Radiesse

Pain in the glabella could hurt if it wasn't mixed with local anesthetic, if the needles bruised the bone, or if some vessels got occluded (filled). Radiesse is thicker for this area than normally recommended so make sure with your doctor that everything is OK. If your injection was just a few hours ago, call your doctor immediately.
