Has anyone ever had radiesse (dermal fillers) injected into their skin to help hide a scar?

Radiesse (dermal fillers) for scars. Radiesse (dermal fillers) has been used successfully to smooth out depressed scars and make them less evident. It will not make the scar "disappear". If you have a prominent or red scar, a dermal filler like Radiesse (dermal fillers) would not be the modality to use to improve the look of it. Ipl/bbl, laser resurfacing and/or surgical scar revision are better.
Yes. I use Radiesse (dermal fillers) or a hyaluronic acid filler to improve the appearance of scars. Each scar will need to be evaluated to determine if it is a candidate for treatment with fillers and which type of filler would work best. I often use a combination of laser resurfacing and steroids fillers to treat scars. Multiple sessions are usually required.

Can radiesse (dermal fillers) be injected into lips for lip lift in men?

No. Hyaluronic acid fillers are softer and safer for lip injections. The most commonly used in the us are Restylane (dermal fillers) and juvederm, though Perlane can be used for larger augmentation. All these are clear. Radiesse is bright white, so can be visible, and is used more for deep lines and augmentation of the cheeks and chin. Read more...
Not recommended. My prefered filler is Restylane (dermal fillers) because it is a gel and can be compressed to shape of the lip. If it is injected exessively , it can be reduced or dissolved all togther by hyaluronidase. All that is not so for radiesse, and it might be necessary to remove exesse surgically. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Read more...

Can radiesse (dermal fillers) improve deep acne scars? I have deep acne scars on my cheeks. I don't really need filler in my cheeks, but I wouldn't mind them being a little plumper. What i'd really like is if it would make my scars less noticeable..

Radiesse (dermal fillers) . Radiesse (dermal fillers) may not be the best filler for your acne scars. Since the material is calcium based, it maybe too hard for your cheeks. I will suggest to use prevelle or juvederm ultra xc, they are hyaluroic acid base injectable, they are much softer than radiesse; they should give you a better result. In addition, not all acne scars are the same and you should differentiate between dermal (skin) and sub dermal (under the skin) components. The treatment options are quite different between the two types of acne scar. If you are not sure please spend the time to consult with a plastic surgeon so you get the appropriate treatment. Good luck! Read more...

What's in radiesse (dermal fillers)? I have very sensitive skin. I'm worried about having a reaction to something in radiesse (dermal fillers)..

Calcium . Calcium hydroxyapatite is the main ingredient found in radiesse. This is a mineral commonly found in the body...Radiesse uses this compound in microspheres (very small particles) to provide volume that can help "plump" up areas of face like nasolabial folds and cheeks. I personally never use in lips or more delicate areas around face because the product is thicker and more palpable than other fillers such as Restylane (dermal fillers) or juvederm...You should consult with a plastic surgeon about which filler will be best for you..Best of luck to you.
