.

Pain : Pain is a very subjective and variable thing and varies a lot on one's pain tolerance and where the filler is being injected. I typically mix numbing medication in with the Radiesse (dermal fillers) so it should numb as it is placed. If you like various nerve blocks can also be done prior to filler placement as well. ...Read more

If : If you get no numbing, then yes, they hurt, a lot! and, yes, the pain goes away, almost immediately. Ice helps greatly. I have never had a patient complain of pain after the filler was placed. The placement of the filler is uncomfortable, that is why we numb you first. I only use topical anesthetic to do the fillers. I have come to find that dental injections hurt much more than doing fillers with topical only. I leave it on for at least 10 minutes to allow it to "sink in". There is only one filler injection that i dental numb for and that is filling lips. Even with those, I have had no pain reported post injection. I refuse to use any filler with anesthetic for 2 reasons: 1. Putting the needle in hurts, not after it is removed, 2. It takes up 20% of the syringe volume and it dissolves over the next hour or so. This creates a false reading on the filler placed. ...Read more

Typically, : Typically, there is no significant pain following the injection of facial fillers. The injections can be uncomfortable without some type of anesthetic, and your plastic surgeon should give you the option of a topical anesthetic applied to the skin (moderately decreases skin sensitivity) or a nerve block (a quick injection that very effectively numbs wider regions of the face, including the sensitive areas such as the lips). ...Read more

How long does radiesse (dermal fillers) usually last? I keep reading how it can last a year or more. But how long is normal? I don't really want to be getting injections every 2 or 3 months. .

Radiesse (dermal fillers) : Radiesse lasts, on average 18 months. I have had patients where it lasts over 2 years. The shortest was 18 months. Botox & Dysport only last 3 months. Most of the dermal fillers last a year. Do your research. Radiesse is a great product-i use it regularly-but, it is not reversible. Restylane/perlane and juvederm are reversible. Meaning, if it is done wrong, they can be dissolved with another injection. Radiesse has to be physically remove. Make sure the treating doctor is well versed on injecting radiesse. ...Read more

That : That is a good question. The latest studies are showing significant improvements at one year, and even improvement at 5 years compared to other fillers. The duration of artefill is much longer than other fillers. Risks are local swelling, infection, or migration, which are rare complications. ...Read more
