The : The main concern would be if you were taking any blood thinning medications. Examples would be ibuprofen, aspirin, naprosyn, (naproxen) coumadin/warfarin, and plavix.This list isn't exhaustive. Check out my link below which provides a longer list of medications to avoid before facial procedures.

This : This is a good question. Anticoagulants are a culprit for bruising, but not a complete contraindication. These are in the form of over-the-counter and holistic supplements. The greatest concern is that Radiesse (dermal fillers) is not to be used in patients with known hypersensitivity to any of the components. Per the manufacturing insert Radiesse (dermal fillers) is a sterile, latex-free, non-pyrogenic, semi-solid, cohesive subdermal implant. The principle durable component of Radiesse (dermal fillers) is synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite. This is the primary mineral constituent of bone and teeth. The semi-solid nature of Radiesse (dermal fillers) is created by suspending calcium hydroxylapatite in a gel carrier that consists primarily of water and glycerin. The gel structure is formed by the addition of a small amount of sodium carboxymethylcellulose. Hopefully this is helpful to you. Be healthy and be well, james m. Ridgway, md.

If : If you mean drug interactions, the answer is no. The only problems associated with Radiesse (dermal fillers) is bruising and swelling. Any medication that thins your blood can cause a problem: bruising. Arnica will take care of bruising.

According : According merz, to the company that produces radiesse (dermal fillers), (dermal fillers) there are no drug interactions with radiesse (dermal fillers). As dr fleming said, blood thinners and anti-coagulation drugs greatly increase your chance for bruising.

Not : Not knowing what medications you're taking i suggest you consult with your internist. Any anti-coagulants (blood thinning medications) would cause bruising. However i'm not aware of any medications that would cause problems with the radiesse (dermal fillers).
