Radiesse injowls

Postby kittyworld » Tue Jun 23, 2009 7:44 pm

My doctor suggested to put a bit of Radiesse in the jowls, on top of the cheeks and nasolabial folds. Is it a common use for it? Could you kindly explain if you use it that way and how does it lift the face. Also he said that using a bit in the midcheek area would make a NL fold less noticeable, instead of putting more in the NL fold which could make it look puffy and overfilled. Does it make sense? I had some two years ago in NL folds and cheek, under the bone, and it worked well. I am just not sure about using it for jowls.
Thank you for your reply.

I am no doc, but before Juvey was on the market, I'd gotten Restylane in my N/L folds. I think Radiesse is another similar filler, and actually, it could be too viscous (thick) for the N/L area. It's probably good in cheeks and jowels if the injection is done right.

But for areas just under the eyes and in N/L folds, Juvey Ultra (or Plus Ultra) could give you a more natural, and not over-filled look.

I am 54, if that helps any on my perspective.
