Where are you having it done?

Postby jasieteves » Sat Jun 17, 2006 9:59 am

You didn't say. I'am having it done on Monday for my eye hollows. It should stay in place since it is much thicker than Resty. My doc never said anything to me about it migrating. Where did you hear that from? Now I'am wondering if I'am making the right choice? Oh crap. Jasie

A Dr. here in PHL said he does radiesse and prefers it on marionette lines for it lasts longer. First one I have found that feels this way. I want to give it a try but I am also so afraid of lumps, bumps, and migration issues. We will never know if we don't try. It is coming down for me to "just do it." Be done with it all ready!!! I sick of thinking about it wondering and then doing nothing. I just a consult with him to see how much expereince he really has. I know other Dr.'s won't use it there at all. Hmmm--tis a bafflement!!

It definately expands. I'm not talking anything major, but it does expand. It also calms down, too. They can massage it in and that really helps. Lots of ice ladies!!!

We keep thinking wll it lump or be bumpy, the hell with it I just got sick and tired of staring at these eyes and wondering should Ido the Radiesse or should I just live with this tired look. Well I said get it over with already and pray for goood results. My day is tomorrow. My doc knows exactly how I feel because he is also my good friend. I had my tatoo girl cameby my shop yesterday to draw in my eyeliner as a example because I will be under i.v sedation and won't beable to tell her how I wan't it to look. It looked totally awesome it just brightens up my eyes so much. Now if the radiesse just works out I will be very pleased. Oh and of course I will have my smooth forhead and between eyes again thanks to the Botox. Heh,I'am having a few things done praise god for i.v sedation or else I could never have any of this done. Wish me luck Jasie

4evryoung...Did you finally find someone to do the marionnette lines? When I started posting on these boards, you were looking into it!
You're right...you'll never know how it's going to look on you unless you do it. Just knowing that you probably will be swollen at first makes it less scary. Remember it does go down and really softens those lines!
Good Luck...Lori

Yes I already have the eyeliner done. I had it done 8 years ago under general anthesia when I had my boobs done. There is no way i could sit still for this, not a chance. It will look like brand new again after tomorrow. I just pray the Radiesse works out allright.I will be icing all day and taking Bromelain & Arnica. Thanks Jasie

You mentioned to Jasie she should think about lash extensions. How long does it take to do the lash extensions and does it hurt? Also how long do they last?
Jasie
Thanks for posting your experiences. This site has helped me so much, so far I have only done resty in the eye hollows and it has only been 3 and 1/2 months but I only expect to get 6 to 9 months and eventually would like something long lasting.

The lash extensions questions....how long does it take...about how much does it cost.....how long before touch-up or do you just do it for a special occasion...does it ruin your own lashes....we have a couple weddings coming up maybe would be kinda fun.... :lol:

Beeguy and KristinR:
Lash extensions are individual lashes that are glued on to your own lashes for volume and length. Than a sealer is applied. It takes a little more than an hour to do. I had the "fan" type of extensions applied whereas 5 lashes are held together on the bottom (picture a bouquet of flowers) and that lash is applied to the one lash for a more dramatic effect. Those kind take even shorter to do. I work in a salon and I paid $50.00. I think my salon charges anywhere from $200.00-300.00 for them. I have already had mine on for a week with losing only a couple. The lashes supposedly are supposed to last from 2-3 months. You can't get any oils (eye makeup remover) on them. They recommend you come in every couple of weeks or so to have them touched up, which at my salon is $35.00. I get compliments on them all the time. You don't need mascara or an eyelash curler. I do wear a little eyeliner and they really stand out. I'm going out of town the middle of July and I'll probably get a new set put on, or have them touched up.

No, it isn't supposed to ruin your lashes.

Bottom line is that the permanent injectables have not been around long enough for anybody to know how they behaves long term. Silicone injections all looked fine initally too back in the 70s.

I know for sure that the face muscles are in constant 3-dimensional movement, and that the facial tissue move with time and aging (sagging)

I am unsure how an permanent implant or injectable will behave in those conditions...so I use an absorbable injectable and sleep better at night.
