Hi There , I would really appreciate some advice or any help.
I had 1 cc of radiesse under my eyes 14 days ago. Immediately after the injections my right tear trough got very bruised, swollen and numb, while my left eye responded quite nicely.
Well, after about 10 days the bruising and swelling under my right eye has dissipated but the numbness remains (but only on the right side) . It begins at the injection site, just lateral to my nose, and radiated down to my top lip, cheek and to my hair line.
I went back to my Doctor yesterday and he said, I more then likely had nerve irritation and that it would go away on its own.
I woke up today with just slight numbness but now with an awareness of the radiesse under my skin and constant dull pressure/ache in my sinus' thats been increasing all day. The feeling is elusive and I cant tell exactly where its originating. It feels like a headache deep in my sinuses (directly behind my nose) someplace. :(. It also feels like If I could just blow my nose hard enough, I might get some relief. Only when I blow my nose, nothing happens and theres no relief.
This is not a sinus infection, Im not stuffed up, and Im not sick. Could a 'nerve irritation' be causing this???
Im traveling out the country in 4 days for a month and I have a feeling this pressure might get pretty intense on such a long flight.:(
I look totally healthy. My face isn't throbbing, its not warm to the to the touch and its not red or swollen. If there was something very wrong, wouldn't I be bruised or have external signs?? Im really upset and scared.
Although the procedure was pretty gross, It wasn't the bad once the lidocaine kicked in. The worse part was feeling the radiesse needle touching my cheek bone. Ewww, Still gives me the willys. I wish I would have found this site before I had it done. I would NOT get these shots again.

Although my tear throughs do look better, I cannot recommend Radiesse in this area. I wish I would have seen this site before I had the procedure done. I had no clue radiesse was so terrible for under the eyes. :(
