Most of the people who weighed in on RealSelf.com reported a positive experience with Radiesse. Several felt that they looked younger after having the treatment done on the face or hands, and many reported little to no pain during and after. Negative reviewers complained of pain and odd sensations at the injection sites, and one person claims to have developed an infection in the treated area.
