Radiesse (our detailed report can be found here) is a popular dermal filler manufactured by Merz Aesthetics! If you are considering the possibility of having a Radiesse treatment you should read as much testimonials as possible, so as to make sure the product is exactly what you need. This is why we are sharing, in the paragraphs below, representative parts of the reviews we received in our contact form. So take a moment to read the following lines:
I’d been always looking after my appearance, eating healthy foods, working out regularly and avoiding sun; moreover, I had been using creams and lotions up to now, and the effect of all this care was a young and radiant face. Unfortunately, a moment comes where nothing of the above can do more that just delaying the unavoidable (by the way, I am 53); so, I went for Radiesse, which seemed a pretty remarkable solution for ironing my evident wrinkles and lines, and also add some volume to my face. The injections were almost pain-free and I noticed a big difference afterwards! My eyes are lifted and my cheeks are bulkier while some creases have been completely disappeared and others have now much smaller depth! Of course, I perfectly understand that those results are not going to be permanent, but that’s OK; I am going to have Radiesse again next year!
I am 46 years old now and if I detest something on my face, it’s those ugly smile lines that have been now well established on it. So, I opted for something more radical than than the almost useless creams I tried before. It was not an easy decision, though; one one hand, I was not hoping so much from an an injectable filler treatment, on the other, it was a bit pricey; but I didn’t want to penny-pinch on that matter, so I decided to go for it.
Unfortunately, that was not one of the smartest things I have done in my life. The first treatment delivered more pain that I had expected – and more than I could bear. Anyway, when it was over, I was left with excessive swelling and inflammation. OK, when all these faded, the smile lines had been lessened but another problem emerged: lumps. Now I must consult my doctor to see how I can get rid of them.
I had searched a lot before going for a restorative procedure, and the Radiesse injections, designed to trigger additional collagen production, seemed to be just fine for my case. I am not very old (47 years old) but I can hardly deny that my face is not as it used to be 10-15 years ago… So, the experience was truly uncomplicated, far lees painful than I had predicted; the fact that local anesthesia was made before the injections must have helped. The whole procedure was over before I could know it, and when I took a glance at the watch, I realized that it had lasted for less than 30 minutes! Moreover, swelling and redness didn’t appear and I could enjoy my new look almost immediately! Radiesse worked just perfectly for me; I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
I recently turned 62 and I was looking for a touch of freshness with Radiesse. I had tried other dermal fillers before, mostly Juvederm, so I was not new to cosmetic treatments. Juvederm was my choice for nasolabial folds, and I had no serious complain about its effectiveness. So, you might wonder why did I have to switch over to something different. Well, I even now haven’t got an answer to that; maybe because I was convinced that Radiesse would give more permanent results.
So, I went for it. The procedure was uncomplicated, but after it, swelling and bruising appeared; and it was not the fact that they appeared (besides, Juvederm also had such side effects), but this was much more than I had anticipated. And that was not all; ten days later, next to my lips and nose, a heap begun to form, just above the treated area. Seriously, that was frustrating; I remember immediately calling the doctor, and we had an appointment the following day, trying to sort things out with some massage, but it wouldn’t work. After 10-15 days, that heap got better, but I am deeply disappointed and upset with all this. Either it was the doctor or the product, I will be always blaming myself for choosing Radiesse.
Had Radiesse two weeks ago for my cheeks. Big swelling emerged, and it makes me look so weird. I am very worried. When will all this settle down? I hope soon, and I want to see the results underneath that puffiness! Right now, I just hate what I see in the mirror!
My tear trough areas had begun to deepen more and more over the last years and I had to do something. I asked a friend of mine who had tested Radiesse with pretty acceptable results, and I decided to give it a chance too. But I was not so lucky. Those Radiesse injections don’t seem to have worked on my face; in fact, it is a mess now, as the operation has delivered asymmetric results: on one side, it looks bulkier, and on the other, it’s like what it used to be! I am outraged!
