I had Radiesse injections two days ago including cheek implants and injections to nose to mouth and marionette lines. I had been looking at a mid-face lift but decided to try this first. I am 54 and have good skin with small pores and nice textures. But those lines just kept on coming.
My doctor injected me with plenty of lidocaine and I am glad he did. Even with the numbing, the Radiesse injections were uncomfortable. I following his after care instructions to the letter and iced all afternoon following the procedure. He advised against exercise for 72 hours - that has been the greatest sacrifice! I have what I consider minimal bruising and taken a total of 4 ibuprofen since the procedure.
I think the results are great thus far. My goal was to reduce the lines around my face and mouth and that is exactly what I've gotten. I look forward to seeing how my face looks after a week.
