Radiesse
Facelift

Can anyone tell me...I had Radiess injected into my cheek area last week and immediately my cheeks swelled up....I didn't mind as i knew they would decrease. However, I am so unhappy after 7 days as my face honestly doesnt look much different than before i had it done. I had one viral but i thought i would see a little difference....I paid a lot of money and feel very cheated. Im not one for complaining but there is not much different at all. Can anyone tell me why you can't tell iv had this done, I paid 400 pound for the viral thank you xx

Thank you to the person who replied to my question, sadly, I didn't understand what they said?? I wanted to know, when I had Radiesse, and when the swelling had gone down, it just looks like id not had anything done, do you think its because I only had one viral and it was not enough? I'm so disappointed as no one noticed i had it done.....I only want someone to please tell me about Radiesse, is it worth having another viral or not??? it is expensive so I don't know if I should go head or not, I just want to look a bit better than the way I do, I have such hollow cheeks. If I could afford a face lift then I would have no hesitation but reading into Radiesse, it seemed the next best option but I'm just not getting there results I hope to have got.......I would appreciate if someone could reply with information of Radiess for me instead of the last response which I just didn't undertand one bit! Many thanks and kindest regards xxx
