Can you drink after having radiesse (dermal fillers) injections?

Shouldn't: Although it is not contraindicated, alcohol can thin the blood and increase risk of bruising. I would avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before and after a treatment. ...Read more

How much pain do radiesse (dermal fillers) injections cause? On a scale of 1-10, how much do radiesse (dermal fillers) injections hurt? .

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

How long does the pain last after radiesse (dermal fillers) injections? I've heard that the radiesse (dermal fillers) shots hurt a lot in your cheeks. Will it go away fast? .

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

How long does it take to get radiesse (dermal fillers) injections? I know the radiesse (dermal fillers) injections themselves should only take a few minutes. But is there any prep time or waiting time after? Can I be in and out in under an hour? .

Initially: Initially you should have a complete evaluation of your face and have a discussion concerning the pros and cons of radiesse (dermal fillers). If you arrive with no makeup on then you will not have to remove it. The procedure and evaluation requires about an hour or so. ...Read more

When is it best to take arnica after radiesse (dermal fillers) injection?

When is it best to take arnica after radiesse (dermal fillers) injection?

Arnica Montana p/: For my radiesse/dermal filler patients with a tendency to bruise or who are concerned about bruising, I have them start taking arnica at least a day before treatment. Otherwise I give them a dose as we prep for procedure and direct them to continue on a regimen for about 5 days or as long as needed. We use boiron's arnica montana 12c and our patients have been happy with it. ...Read more

How many injections of radiesse (dermal fillers) do you get on each side of your face? Do you get one big injection of radiesse (dermal fillers), or a bunch of smaller ones? .

How many injections of radiesse (dermal fillers) do you get on each side of your face? Do you get one big injection of radiesse (dermal fillers), or a bunch of smaller ones? .

Radiesse (dermal fillers) technique: The number of pricks depends on individual doctor. I use only one prick on each side and inject as I am pulling the needle out. However some doctors might use 'depot technique' which involves multiple deposits of the material which is then massaged for uniform distribution. ...Read more

A few: Radiesse (dermal fillers) is used to sculpt the face. Small amounts are placed in various areas of the face to lift and contour. Prior to the injections the areas are outlined so as to be precise in the contouring. Radiesse (dermal fillers) is spread in multiple areas to prevent bulging. It is a wonderful product to sculpt the face. I often use Radiesse (dermal fillers) as part of my "rosenthal liquid facelift". www. Artofplasticsurgery. Com. ...Read more

Can I massage out bumps that form after radiesse (dermal fillers) injections? I've heard lumps are a possible side effect after radiesse (dermal fillers) injections. If I get them, can I massage them to smooth it out? .

Yes: Yes you can as long as it is within the first 24-36 hours. If your filler is not smooth immediately after the injection, gentle massage the area until it is. Your doctor should smooth it out immediately after the injection. If you notice lumps, get back to your doctor immediately for a post-op check. ...Read more

Will I get anesthesia before my radiesse (dermal fillers) injections? I hate shots. I always end up feeling like a little kid, because they hurt so bad. Will I be able to get something to prevent the pain before getting radiesse (dermal fillers)? .

Will I get anesthesia before my radiesse (dermal fillers) injections? I hate shots. I always end up feeling like a little kid, because they hurt so bad. Will I be able to get something to prevent the pain before getting radiesse (dermal fillers)? .

Most: Most surgeons will give the patient the option of a local anesthetic injection or even the use of topical anesthetic (numbing cream). I generally do not give oral medications to be taken prior to injections. Products like Restylane (dermal fillers) and juverderm come with local anesthetic already mixed into the syringe. These products tend to cause less discomfort than Radiesse during injections.
Consult a plastic surgeon in your area.
Best of luck to you.

Will makeup cover any redness or bruising from radiesse injections? I understand I can go right back to my normal activities after getting radiesse. But if I don't want anyone to know I had it done! If I have redness or bruising, will I be able to cover I

Absolutely: Absolutely you can place makeup right after Radiesse (dermal fillers) injections. I find the redness lasts only a few hours. If you experience bruising the discoloration will last 5 to 7 days. Yes makeup is fine if this occurs. Please check with the injector if the redness or bruising does not diminish after 7 days. Make sure each time you have Botox or filler injections, that you stop Aspirin and vitamins one week before as these increase redness and bruising. Best regards. ...Read more

Most: Most likely. As with all injections, there always is a possibility of bruising. It is rare with filler injections in capable hands.

Mineral makeup okay: We use color-matched colorescience sunforgettable mineral sunscreen powder on our patients after injections like botox, xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a) and dermal fillers such as radiesse. It helps obscure redness at the injection site and balance pigment and provide sun protection. We get compliments from our patients on the look and feel of the product and have had no issues with irritation. ...Read more
