I am 46 yrs old woman and wanted to soften the look of wrinkles forming in facial dimples (they used to be cute):)
48 hrs after the injection (while on a business trip) I started developing a HUGE rash and serious swelling, along w/difficulty breathing. When I arrived home 2 days later I went straight to a local Emergency Quick Care Center.
I was told that this was an allergic reaction to RADIESSE. I was prescribed steroids "60 ct", allergy meds and an epi pin in case I stopped breathing. The doctor told me that because this stuff is injected he could not promise that this reaction would not return.
It has been one month, the benefits I can't see at all (I had 1 syringe) the medspa threw me out on my heels when I asked for a refund (of course) and my skin is dry and flaky. ALL IN ALL A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
