Should Beauty Be Carved, Injected, Or Just Left To Mother Nature?

The ever-advancing science of making us look younger or more beautiful than we really are has introduced a number of products, from Retin-A to Botox to microderm abrasion. And now, as an alternative to implants, the world has been introduced to Radiesse.

Formerly called Radiance, Radiesse is a non-toxic 'filler' that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth and 'enhance' your cheekbones via injections. 

Now, this may be a bit naive of me, but does this world really need bigger cheekbones? We've all seen what happens when a botox-happy woman can't smile for two weeks, or when Ms. Spears ODs on the lip love and appears as through someone sucked on her kisser with a vacuum. Since the effects of Radiesse can be seen for two years or longer, that's a long time to deal with a chance you don't like. Although the procedure is short – less than 15 minutes in most cases – it also requires a local anesthetic to numb the applicable area.

While I have to admit this might be a great alternative for someone considering permanent implants (try before you buy!), the thought of getting 'filled in' – like you stuff a turkey at the holidays – gives me the creeps.

What do you think? Is Radiesse a great treatment or too much like creating Frankenstein? Tell us in the comments below.
