I'm 46 and never had fillers -- only botox. I noticed my facial features changed quite dramatically in the past four years -- upper 1/3 loss of volume mainly. I was uncertain which filler would be best for what I wanted to achieve and decided to trust my doctors opinion. He offers three different fillers in his office. He said that he mainly noticed loss of volume in my cheeks and said Radiesse would correct this the best (over juvaderm and boterlla). I also wanted to address smile lines and vertical lines around my upper lip, but because I'm currently wearing orthodontics he said he would rather wait until that is out of my mouth as it creates "false volume". So, I trusted my doctor and decided to do one thing at time.
I was also afraid of bruising and swelling -- more fear of the unknown than anything else.
So within five minutes I had at least five years back -- and I really loved the results -- especially for the price. Even my doctor was like "wow, that made a huge difference!" I think he was surprised, too! I had a 40 minute drive home and even when I got home I really noticed a big difference and not much bruising.
