Solution:I had radiesse injected both on the lateral cheek and the anterior cheek on 2 separate occasions... READ MORE

Nope I have not tried sculptra even though my plastic surgeon keeps trying to sell me it. But yes I agree it is not good value for money. Did you find that you achieved a more natural look withy voluma compared to radiesse? READ COMMENT

Hey Lishious, I had Volift injected into the cheeks right on the bone. I've had other products injected there (voluma and radiesse). Volift did seem to be very hard when I first got it for the first few days but it softens significantly... READ COMMENT
