I have an appt. to get Radiesse around my mouth area. Reading reviews I am thinking may be Restylane would be better, but I want it too last a long time. What do you think?

Unfortunately, there is no perfect answer for this question. There are
pros and cons to each product and you will be better off to find an
injector that uses both Radiesse and Restylane frequently. In this way,
he/she would be able to review all of the pros and cons for each product
and then together you would be able to make an informed decision.

It depends. Around the mouth, if the lines are deeper then you can
consider Radiesse. This would definitely last longer but would look
awkward if the lines were more superficial. Make sure you don't use
Radiesse in the lips since this can cause unwanted lumps. Also, you
can consider Juvederm which may last longer than Restylane in some
patients.

I had a filler six months back, and as the results fade away I would like to get another filler treatment. However, I have developed a small lump under the skin in my laugh line which is not visible, but I can feel it when I press the area. Can I have more filler with the lump still there, or does that need to be addressed first?
