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.
Radiesse (dermal fillers) Most plastic surgeons and dermatologist recommend avoiding alcohol during Radiesse (dermal fillers) treatment. Alcohol or wine may potentially increase risk of bruising with office cosmetic treatments.
Drinking p/ Radiesse (dermal fillers) Theoretically you can drink after your Radiesse (dermal fillers) injection. I take it you mean alcohol. I do not recommend my patients drink alcohol on the day of their Radiesse (dermal fillers) treatment. There is a risk of bruising with this and other dermal filler treatments and i tend to be somewhat conservative in my approach, so that my patients have the best outcome possible.

It . It depends on you and the doctor doing it. How are you with needles? If you are a baby like me, the pain is very mild with the proper use of topical anesthetic. If the injections are for the lip; you need to be "dental blocked". Those injections are quite painful. The nasolabial fold injections are tolerated quite well with topical anesthetic. If you go the topical route, make sure the doctor leaves it on for at least 15 minutes. Good luck. Read more...

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.

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...

Your . Your question is a very good one. Commonly most injections take only a few minutes to perform, but please note that this is an oversimplification. If you are known to the physician and the aesthetic goals have already been determined - then you are ready to go. However, if you have yet to visit with your doctor, convey your concerns, and review therapeutic options, then your visit will take longer. An hour is reasonable to achieve all of these goals and your treatment during a first visit. It is important to note that it is your face and there is no advantage in cutting corners during the first visit. Be healthy and be well, james m. Ridgway, md www.Larrabeecenter.Com. Read more...
